I know it wasn't mate.  Some of us are capable of understanding what is being said and how it's being said, that's why I knew I could call you a name without it breaking you.

Good man! To be fair I've been called fair worse in my time 😂

But it is a gut wrenching way to lose a final.

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!

After that, and it's horrible to say, but the thing I'm most worried about is the racial abuse those 3 young black players will get on social media for missing penalties. 

Well played throughout the tournament, you far surpassed what I expected. 

Called it. 

And you'll still have fans saying "but every country does that". Disgusting.

This is horrific to read 

 

I do believe it's wrong celebrities get tickets for being a celebrity like the Royal family shouldn't get auto passes for Wimbledon and Wembley. In a equal society all should have a chance at the ballot. I applied for tickets in the 2019  ballot was unsuccessful how can every celebrity who wanted one got one 🙄. That's the unfairness in the system not going to lie.  Not surprised they were these scenes the staidum capsicty should of been increased to 90k aswell

How so we are meant to live in a equal society when is very clearly preferential treatment for some 

I mean Tom Cruise is one thing but when it comes to equality, the Royals are very clearly not equal to the rest of us. Maybe some Royals are humble of the position they're put into by birth but they could spend their entire life trying to prove otherwise from the fact they are quite literally defined by their privilege over the rest of us.

Compared to the individual quality of life, they are above the average Joe like you or me and they always will be. Maybe Prince William isn't a bad guy at heart, maybe Prince Harry and his wife have been hard done by by the press but it certainly helps building a personality towards accepting others when you go home to the privilege a Royal goes home to.

If we were outclassed, it wouldn't have ended in a draw with only one real Italian chance.

So nah.

Gutted we lost, Italy are deserved champions, but we more than held our own.

You definately were. From about the 20th minute it was like the England-Denmark game where you decided to defend it out knowing there was a quality difference. I just don’t know why you did that because you were so good for the opening but Italy owned that game from there on.

honestly if you'd said before we kicked off vs croatia that England would:

Reach a final.
Not concede a goal for the first 5 straight games.
Knock out Germany
Lose on penalties to comfortably the best team in the tournament

I'd have snapped your hands off I think; so this tournament can't be seen as anything other than a success. Everyone needs to remember that.

I agree with you to an extent, on paper anyways. But when you look at our matches Italy was the first 50/50 game for me, and again Southgate has shown he just isn't really a very good football manager.

Look at Italy's run to the final, Belgium, Spain then us, all games you'd say are real 50/50's and Mancini showed his worth navigating them through. 

It really felt like a stars align type situation for us. Had as easy a run in you're likely to get at a major finals, home advantage for most of it including the final. Even the toughest match against Italy we got lucky in that they were missing their best player. Feels like we have really missed a massive opportunity here and I'm gutted and frustrated at how Southgate set us up and the changes he made during the game.

Italy deserving champions for their performances throughout the tournament unfortunately. Well done to Italy first and foremost.

We can also crucify moments/selections throughout the game including penalty takers last night, but we shouldn't be anything other than proud of how far we have progressed as a team and a nation. There is a lot of positives we can take from this tournament but its been a step forward.

This defeat is going to sting for a while, but hopefully we can use this as fuel for the World cup November 2022.

Proud of the team, even more so of the ones who were brave enough to put their hand up and say they'd take a penalty. It wasn't to be. Proud of Southgate and the culture he has cultivated within this squad of players. This team will only get stronger, it's going to be a fun few years watching England.

On a much more uncomfortable note, English football needs to take a long hard look at itself after some of the scenes that unfolded last night and some of the stories that I have read since. There is still a significant undercurrent of racism in football and it's fans in this country and contrary to what I said earlier in the tournament, I couldn't give a toss if it's a football wide problem or just England. We need to get our own house in order, I would fully support UEFA giving us a punishment of behind closed door games as we have seen for Hungary.

    • 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!
    • So important.  Wilder totally justified in his comments about Crooks being first choice and Payero having that as a barrier.  But the importance of team spirit and bond will be crucial.  Injuries/suspensions will likely come into play and feel for the first time in a while we are trying to ensure we have cover in all areas of the pitch that have the attributes we highlight as being required for them. 
    • I wouldn't equate the difference between our combined abilities from season start to end, within our club from the top down, to being like they were on performance enhancing drugs compared to us. They cheated but I don't think that suddenly made them or their squad in any way better than ours. That summer window was quite possibly the worst we've seen since relegation, too. There is so much about that year that fills me with dread to think about because we handled it so badly from start to end. Derby spending beyond their means didn't, or perhaps shouldn't have, affected us anywhere near as much as we seem to claim it has.
