Heading away with the good lady wife so won’t be back on before the final. Sincerest best wishes to the ordinary English fans on here. Hope it happens for you 💪

I think for me it's partly about the connection to the area too. I don't hold much connection to the entirety of England but I love coming from Middlesbrough, I've lived and worked in a few places aro

Congrats, friends ...  🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 V 🇩🇰 @ Wembley  ...   Good luck to y'all!

That first 15 minutes or so again was brilliant from us too, at both ends. Just overloading them and managed to make the most of it before they got to grips with it which is exactly what you want to see. Pretty much the first time we got chance to get it forward in that position and Luke Shaw just takes his effort as well as any striker in that position, great finish all things considered.

Yeah, we looked like we started to sit deeper as time went on didn't we? Ideally we want to start troubling them at the other end a bit more but it is our game to lose right now. Keeping them at arm's distance isn't too bad but we need to make sure we don't just sit and let them have the ball for 45 minutes.

Agreed. There's defending and keeping them at arms length and there's sitting back and letting them come at you for a half. We can't afford to do that.

This is where we find out if England have learned from the last few years, and found a way to adapt as the game changes.  Similar scenario to the World Cup semi final, we score early, look ok for a chunk of the first half, but the opposition come back into it.  In the second half we couldn't change the flow of the game, Croatia took control, and eventually went on to win.  Have we grown from that game or not?

Hope we can nick another early goal early on in the second half. Going to be nervy if we dont. 

Couple of times weve overplayed a bit and ran into defenders (sterling). Maybe need to just take a shot rather than trying to walk it in.

Definitely that was a penalty imo. Knees clash and takes out the back of Sterling’s knee. Accidentally yes but still a penalty

    • As much as I love seeing Crooks in that half -space linking up with Jones and Dijksteel, I can't help but think Crooks could be the long term answer in Howson's role which opens up the place for Payero.   
    • As much as I'd love to see more of Martin, can't complain about our midfield trio who have played most others off the park since Wilder came in. Reading is the first game I can't recall us dominating the other midfield with pressure and possession. I'd also say that Crooks is neck and neck with Jones for our player of the season award and I wouldn't be looking to drop the big fella. I do wonder if there's the potential to play Crooks and Payero in the same midfield longer term. It's been noticeable that Howson is no longer playing an out and out DM role, he's often picking up positions edge of the box and rotating a bit with Crooks and Tav. Having 3 energetic box to box midfielders, all with a real threat to the goal is a tasty prospect. Still waiting to be woken up, the past few months since Warnock's gone have been dream like. Attractive football, winning mentality, team spirit, connection with the fans, promising low risk signings, honesty and real plans short & long term from the senior positions at the club. Far cry from the *** coming off the forked tongues of Warnock/Pulis/Monk and co.
    • In his Defence, “Believe” is more auto-tune than it is Cher 😂
    • I didn't say it did. We had a better squad, and more investment than them, they still cheated to get the squad that they did have. Cheating doesn't necessarily make you better than somebody else, it just closes the gap. Derby indisputably cheated, and they finished above us because they cheated.  Waghorn, a player they breached FFP to sign ahead of us, scored 5 goals that led to two wins and two draws. He assisted 2 goals that led to a win and a draw. He also scored another 4 goals and provided 1 assist that helped lead to wins, but weren't integral to them. They finished above us by 1 point, and a player they cheated to sign was directly responsible for at least 12 of their points that season.
    • I would love to attend this if it happened to fall on when i was next in Middlesbrough. Unfortunatley living just outside of Brighton makes the journey a little difficult but i would be very up for this!
