In a few weeks I'm sure I'll be able to look back on the fun times of this tournament... but it really hurts today 😞

Second half was like watching a car crash in slow motion. Sit back for that long and a goal will come through luck or skill. And it seems silly to overanalyse penalties sometimes... but we got it so wrong. If you told me Pickford would save two, I'd have assumed we won. Never felt confident in the two lads taking with their first kicks of the game - in fact first kicks in what, 2 games? And really feel for Saka, that's a lot to handle for a 19 year old.

Some of the videos circulating of the fans last night are horrendous - I wouldn't have wanted my partner or kids subjected to that. Entire roads carpeted in broken glass. Don't get me wrong I like a drink and have a very sore head today... but some people were so drunk they're not even acting like human beings anymore.

Crazy having the game at 8pm given the track record of this country's morons. 

For me that 2nd have was literally like watching us under Pulis, barely trying to keep the ball and no idea what to do with it when we had it. For the whole 2nd half we played with no striker as Kane was playing in midfield.

It was awful management imo, mount was doing absolutely nothing yet stayed on while Rice probably the best england player was taken off. 
It seemed like south gates game plan was the Walker/Trippier overload down the right, once that was countered by italy we were done, might aswell have packed up and gone home.

Thats why I can’t really feel the ‘pride’, we surrendered the game weakly rather than valiantly being outplayed, running around getting stuck in is only one third of what is required and that’s essentially all we had. 
 

As for the hooligans it’s us in Trafalgar Square and the square in boro on a bigger scale.

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 💪

Every England fan last night  (Caution industrial language)    IMG_1425.MP4

Few excellent posts regarding the final and the tournament as a whole. On the pitch Southgate got basically every decision he made spot on leading upto the final. Even the decision to go to a win

Right enough now, it is all over including the recriminations, we simply weren’t good enough, time to get back to proper everyday football. Check list, arrange under 15,s coaching, buy paint to tart up the ticket hut, try and find a referee for the first pre season friendly. See life moves on and football with it

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.

What difference would that make?  We've just spent a year watching games behind closed doors, I can't see anyone involved in any trouble being all that bothered mate.

Not much I'd imagine, but that seems to be the biggest punishment they're willing to dole out.

I wonder who had Darren Grimes telling Marcus Rashford to focus on football and not politics on their post-game bingo card, bet they're on to a winner.

Who is Darren Grimes?

Then it's a complete waste of time, and they need to think about something else, although really, I doubt there is much that they can do.

Yeah I'm all good, my *** off wasn't malicious by the way. That said I do still feel like I could cry! 😂

Just not over CT's comments! 😂

Apparently multiple people complained on your behalf mate.  You should feel blessed to have so many people sticking up for you like that, as I imagine that's why they did it, rather than because it was me who said it.

As I'm shortly to be banned from the forum, it's worth stating that having banter with people you regularly have banter with isn't a crime, and shouldn't be viewed as offensive by people it's not even directed to.  I have banter on here with people like Dan, Diggerlad, SmogDane, Blanco, and a few others.  I'd like to think that they are well aware of where I'm coming from when I talk to them, as I know where they are coming from when they talk to me, and I don't get offended when they make fun of me.  This is a public forum, but some of us interact more often with each other than with others, and the chat is likely to be a bit different as a result of that.  It's a shame that some people clearly can't, or simply refuse to, understand this.  My guess is those same people do similar things within their own groups of friends away from here but view this differently for whatever reason.  I view the people on here as my oneBoro mates, yes even you Kelloe, and none of my banter is meant to be taken seriously at all, just as it isn't with my mates in real life.  I thought that would be obvious but clearly it isn't so I am stating it here for the record.  Cheers.

This is what I'm going with for my team of the tournament. I know Pickford is a biased choice, but I'm sticking with it. Yann Sommer, Donnarumma could have both won it too, think they were my 3 best keepers.

I'd put Bonucci in, and I'd probably have Shaw at left back as well.  I think he's had a good tournament, and I say that as someone who would have chosen Chilwell ahead of him in the side.  I also think you'd have to find a place for Sterling somehow but it's a tough one as you'd probably have to leave Schick out.  But I'd say that Sterling has been more influential throughout the tournament.

I'm obviously absolutely gutted about last night, still *** off, but I feel like someone who was robbed because we proved in the 1st half we definitely had the beating of the Italians we were closing them down winning the ball frustrating them, causing them problems down their right, so go in 1-0 up re-group more of the same and go for the kill and instead we come out go in reverse gear and handed it to them, even the Italian goal was a scrappy bloody thing. They must have thought Christmas had come early when they saw our 2nd half tactics played right into the Italians hands.

It's a really really tough one, especially that LB / LWB spot because for me Spinazzola, Shaw & Maehle were three of the best players at the tournament and I don't think you can fit them all in!

Bonnucci is actually probably the better choice over Chiellini tbh, so no complaints there. 

Sterling was another one that I ummed and ahh-ed about and I absolutely would not argue with him making it over Schick or Lukaku if I'm honest.

The thing is that won’t punish the right people. The hooligan element don’t want us to host the World Cup or euros. Those people would much rather rather travel to a Germany or Italy and cause their own brand of havoc there. Absolute scum bags the lot of them

I think you're bestowing too much intelligence on them. I'd be surprised if they were capable of thinking that far ahead.

I'm pretty sure they're just your regular lowlifes who can only think about getting loaded and causing as much chaos and damage as possible...simply because thats their idea of fun.

Its these kind of incidents where I wish we had American cops with itchy trigger fingers.

I think Bonucci had led by example he's been for the most part excellent, plus Chiellini was injured for a couple of games so that would sway me towards Bonucci. I'd have to put Sterling in apart from last night he's been excellent he's frightened defences to death.

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
