- Small boys in the park, jumpers for goalposts, rush goalie. World cup thread.
My forecast for next rounds:
Uruguay will beat France by 2 goals. (France won 2 nil instead 🙁 )
Belgium will beat Brazil by 1 goal. (Spot on! 😀 )
England will beat Sweden by 1 goal. (Almost spot on England won by 2 goals instead. 😀 )
Croatia will beat Russia by 1 or 2 goals max.(2 – 2 Full time, Croatia won on penalty 4-3 😀 )
Belgium will beat France by 1 goal or maximum 2 goals. (France won by 1 goal instead 🙁 )
Croatia will beat England by 2 goals. (who knows England might win by 1 nil) … Forecast looks on track 😀 , but England out 🙁 (Croatia 1-1 full time, Extra time Croatia 1 -0)
Final will be …
France (initially forecast was Belgium) Vs Croatia … both team can win by 1 goal or maximum 2.
I see Croatia winning the World cup.Posted 7 months agodazhSubscriber
Rashford is sh*t. Not done a thing since he came on. Stirling may not have any goal instinct but at least he worries defenders. They were found out eventually. Not enough firepower up front. 4 years to find someone who can score goals. At least it saves the slaughter at the hands of Mbappe.Posted 7 months agoMSPSubscriber
3rd place play off on Saturday now, I don’t think anyone wants to be in that or watch that.
..and they really need to work out whether carrying Dele Alli is worth a goal every 4 or 5 games.
Yeah, I really cam’t understand how he has got so much game time, Southgate has been far too loyal to him, but maybe thats part of why the team seams so together.Posted 7 months agowrightysonMember
Poor choice to take sterling off. Delle should gave been subbed imho. But the overriding thing for me who’s watched paid and followed England since 1990, my love might just be back. Well done fellas. Oh and just to back up my football knowledge, I had England and Croatia each way before the tournament so hopefully I’ll cover my be bets at worse but maybe quids in and win. Sleep tight fellas!Posted 7 months ago
Yep….there’s 6 more years in this team. This was a stepping stone. A fabulous, 3 week stepping stone where we dared to believe (and then reproached ourselves for believing).
Well done England…so proud.
that team won’t win squat with hands in his pockets southgate in charge, he might be good with the media but fails to spot a light weight middle field in panic mode when not even losing the match.Posted 7 months agomikewsmithSubscriber
I’ve seen 3 major semis go the wrong way, this was the day for this tournament but this team will learn. This team will grow, we missed something at the end in terms of maturity and seeing a game out. Honestly fell apart after Henderson came off which tells you how much he was part of it. Well done Gareth and the boys Harry for golden bootPosted 7 months ago
Mediocre ref and linesmen.
Kane miss probably cost the game.
Croatia got better as England lost confidence.
A fair result, I expect Croatia to lift the trophy (and Lee Dixon knows nothing about football).
Both ref and linesmen were shite but then we all expect that …
Kane could have scored at least two more …
Once Croatia apply rugby tackle they shake England up totally.
Yes, I hope Croatia win the World Cup.
I don’t even listen to Lee Dixons …Posted 7 months ago
