Kasper Schmeichel's response to this question about "football coming home" is sure to get loads of coverage 😂

What a crap question from that guy! God I hate most British sports journos. Rank nonsense.

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!

Think he answered pretty well tbf.

The Danish media were asking similarly daft questions of Southgate and Kane an hour ago.

The question was fine. The way it was worded was pathetic and deserved contempt. Think Kasper showed his class and humour in the way he answered it tbf

Not that I think it was a good question, or a bad response from the friendly ghost, but isn't the "Football coming home" thing based on the fact that football was invented/started in England, rather than because we think we're really good at it? That's how i always took it.

I didn't see that. But then I tend not to pay much attention to other countries' media.

I just know ours have a reputation for asking dumb questions like this to teams or individuals from other countries, regardless of the sport...be it football, racing, tennis, or whatever.

Maybe the Danes were being tongue-in-cheek. Maybe ours are too...but it always sounds like they're desperately fishing for quotes.

Harry Kane literally said that he'd text Christian Eriksen once since the incident a couple of seconds before a Danish journalist then went to ask whether he'd be in contact with him since the incident. Leading to him awkwardly repeating what he'd just said.

Another asked if Southgate would be seeking revenge for his failures in 1996.

Thats why it was cringeworthy. Referencing a jingoistic song to try and get a quotable response (which I think they got anyway). While technically it was accurate, it was also needlessly self-serving and rather arrogant-sounding.

I'm not sure our journalists are smart enough to think of it like that. 🤪

Wow - I always figured foreign media were a bit smarter and less "gonzo" thatn out (except the US).

I thought we'd already got our revenge for 1996 over the Germans? 🤷‍♂️

I think Baddiel and Skinner literally wrote the line for that exact purpose.

They did seem to be trying to goad an aggressive response from Kane and Southgate at times.

They both handled the questions well as usual though.

I have an old school friend living out in Copenhagen and he's said the mood is good! 

I hope it is a good game! The atmosphere (from an England perspective) will be incredible.

I'm feeling nervous purely because it's a semi final (1 step away from the big one), but also have a feeling England may just do a proper solid job tomorrow.

Although literally anything can happen!

    • I can't see anything in the laws that says that. It does say that an injured goalkeeper doesn't have to leave the field of play to receive treatment, and that in itself prevents play from restarting until the keeper has received treatment, but it doesn't say anything specific about goalkeeper injuries stopping play. The ref has to stop play if they deem a player to be seriously injured, but I wouldn't class stepping on someone's heel as a serious injury. Which I think is reinforced by the fact De Gea was up and about walking within a minute. It also say the ref "allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured" and if Fred had stepped on any other Man United player, I definitely think that would be deemed only a slight injury and waved on.
    • Btw. does anyone know if the club do half-season online match tickets, like they do with normal season tickets? I vowed never to buy a match as long as Warnock was manager, but I might change my stance now, although I rarely get to see entire games due to other commitments.
    • Yeah I get that. It's probably the best time to not have midweek games with Fry and Payero getting back and the players learn the new routines and build up more fitness. But that still doesn't change the fact, that I want games.
    • If you follow the rule book it was the refs fault. The rules specifically say that the goalkeeper has to be fully functional at all time for the game to be continued. It was Arsenals luck that the ref didn't see he was down injured and blew his whistle before the ball had gone in. It's the refs responsibility to stop play as soon as the keeper isn't functional. That is what makes it controversial. If a keeper is hurt while trying to stop the ball from going into the net ie. bangs his head against the post and the ball goes in then it's obviously a goal. But if the keeper is down hurt before the 2nd 3rd or whatever touch then the ref has to stop play. 
    • Have a great time, that man. Hope the boys make you proud ,Enjoy the Legends Lounge & the party. .........  Travelling is a complete pain these days. Im off to Tenerife next week via Stansted so i need locator forms going into Spain, PCRS test & locator forms  coming back to the UK & again a locator form coming back to Ireland. All worth it though........... I love the way people on Forums ask "Does anyone know a bar in "wherever" where i can watch the match. In other words- I am in "wherever" & i want everyone to know it,  BTW Does anyone know a Bar in Costa Adeje where i can watch Sky Sports?!
