After seeing the fight the Japanese team put up last night I’m relieved we’re playing Colombia we will concede but I’m confident in a 3-1 win with sterling to finally get a goal .

Is Raheem Sterling really carrying Harry Kane ?

Was the other way around for the first 2 games!

Of course it does - goes without saying. In fact, I'd say almost everyone is applying the 'one game at a time' thing because this is England we're talking about.

Despite that, you can't deny that that's a far easier list of potential opponents than the other half of the draw (France, Uruguay, Brazil, Belgium) thus we are more likely to make the final.

You're right, we are more likely to reach the final in this half, I agree.

However, I was replying to a poster who suggested they would be 'slightly surprised if we did not now make the final'.

I think our chances are good, certainly compared to what they were when the tournament began, but to say it would be surprising if we didn't make the final now is a bit of a stretch in my opinion.

For the superstitious among you, this isn’t a good thing to read:

I also don’t like the fact we’re the 8th game of 8 in the round of 16. The last two times that happened, we lost to Argentina on penalties in 98, and to Iceland two years ago in Nice.

The A team back... which most certainly includes Sterling instead of Rashford and get the job done.

Possibly easier tonight against a team that  won't focus on defending compared to the Swiss or Swedes in the Quarters.

1 win in 11 on ITV. Some omen.

He won’t be. Here’s here for the next Euros, and rightly so. 

He has brought an identity, brought young players through, and needs a few year to get the team in shape. 

Almost sounded like LJ then!

You could've said that about Roy Hodgson.

He tried to build an identity to the way England were to play, and his teams were the youngest to play in recent years.

The difference is that Hodgson bottled it in competition. If Southgate does the same, how is it any different?

Because Southgate doesn't have Kane taking corners.

Really don't know what to expect tonight. Are we a little fresher after resting our players I wonder. Got to be confident of scoring goals with the attacking players we now have. 

I’m a little worried too. Belgium and Croatia both rested players on their final game and they were both fortunate to go through and looked off the pace slightly

Or is the God of football smiling on Russia, Croatia, Sweden, Switzerland or Colombia?

'On paper' or whatever we might be the favourite amongst those sides, but it is getting ahead of ourselves to be talking about the Quarters yet, let alone the Final.

The old football cliche of 'one game at a time' needs applying here.

know what you're saying but don't you deep down have a sneaky feeling at last this could be our turn to get to the final, not saying we are going to win it mind that would be asking a lot but if you don't ask!

Really nervous. Proper churning in my stomach that I’ve not felt watching England in a long time. I think I actually care again. I love it. This is what football is all about. 

It's like meeting the ex again . It starts off well , you think " why did we end it ? " 

Then the old cracks  reappear ( No Rudolf ) and you realise it was right to move on , all along .

England's chances depend on Kane staying fit .

Do we have  any other player in our squad who is genuinely world class ?

We have a good squad on the same level as Denmark or Iceland so we have a chance but we shouldn't get too carried away .

 

Oh sod it ! 

It's coming home , it's coming home ...

Slightly off topic but **** me how good is that.

Imagine hearing that coming out of a young Noel's house while you're on your way back from the shops for a pint of milk.

The amount of potential singles Oasis had in the first two albums they didn't release.  Stand By Me could have been an album that took them to biggest band in the world hype. 

Should play this pre match, its such a banger.

Even the B-sides. Bands at the time would've killed to have some of the B sides Oasis have had. Cigarettes in Hell, Lets all Make Believe, Acquiese, Take Me Away, Fade Away, Listen Up.

Agreed RE pre match stuff mind. @Matt Parsons BCFCSLO have a word mate! Columbia is a perfect.

Yeah I'm glad the club are a bit more receptive to music requests now. I appreciate music is a very personal thing, but surely songs like this have more appeal than playing 'Elbow' which we did and refused to change(!) for a couple of years.

I think the club know their audience a bit better. I'd bet the average football fan would rather hear I Wanna be Adored than One Day Like This. It's just about the demographic you need to appeal to.

I think we used to just try a bit too hard with some of our choices and it came across as quite pretentious.

I remember one season when we played Slam by Pendulum which I thought was a great choice, think the playoff season 07-08 and also Knights of Cydonia when we had a relegation battle one season.. can't remember the year. Two great choices there.

I remember pretty recently you'd always you'd hear the same songs before games.. Rocking all over the world, that Kill Bill theme and the Liquidator!

Knights of Cydonia I'd forgotten about that! Now that's a cracking choice.

If I have to hear Freed from Desire again though, **** me, I'll top myself.

I am sure this will prove to be the highlight of the evening for some, or maybe all, of you: Morrisons' new TV commercial airs at 6.50pm, shortly before KO. A friend of mine worked on the production and she has insisted I tune in to see it. I for one am going to drop whatever I am doing.

Sadly the only use for adverts on TV games are either time to go to the bar or dash to the loo

I had planned to work as late as possible, but been clock watching for hours now, that's it I am off now to get the train home !

I've listened to This Time, by England 1982 Squad, 43 times today. I've lost the plot. 

I just love the excellent lyrics... this time, more than any other time, we'll get it right. 

Gold dust.

 After the first group game, I would say out chances might depend on us not needing help from VAR.
