EURO FINAL 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 V 🇮🇹


Recommended Posts

As others have said, toughest match we've had for a long time, definitely under Southgate and the first time in this tournament we haven't gone into the match with a far superior man for man advantage. 

Will be interesting to see how Southgate goes about it. The Trippier for Grealish change against Denmark gave me the Willie's so I'm kinda expecting him to go very cautious. Really hope he pulls it out the bag.

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!

You know what - I've gone through pretty much the entire tournament without ever being confident of England winning, despite Southgate and the lads coming through time and time again (Scotland game aside).

Despite the last 3 games I'm still less confident than ever.

Tough as the Denmark match was, England are going to have to play the game of their lives to bring home the trophy.

Italy are going to be incredibly tough to break down and also have plenty of attacking threat. Also world class simulators and time-wasters. 😜

My only reason for optimism is knowing Southgate has somehow picked the right teams and made the right subs so far and that the lads have done their bit to get us this far.

There will be no disgrace in losing to Italy and I'm fully prepared for it. If we do manage to win, I may just lose what few marbles I have left...

I'm sure he will be now you've tagged him. 😂

I'm sure our resident half-Irish, half-Italian forumite will have some words of wisdom for us.

We now have a Spanish journalist claiming UEFA set up Euro 2020 to have England reach the final.

The only EUROs where more than 2 countries have had the benefit of home matches and yet it's all made for us. We literally hosted it 25 years ago and never won it. Christ alive.

Are you suggesting England intend to win by unethical means?

“We’ve had matches in cities that aren’t even European in any sense. We’ve got a final that was prepared for a country that left the European Union.

 Think that is quite harsh and possibly xenophobic about Glasgow 😉

    • If that was the case, every keeper out there would just feign death and fall over whenever the ball was anywhere near their goal and every game would end 0-0 for all eternity.
    • Nice to hear Wilder was complimentary of Leo in saying he has really taken to him. I know people might say people should have a a job on merit and not emotion but with Leo it seems he here on both counts.   I guess its nice knowing there someone in the set up who genuinely has the same passion and love for the club we fans do. And that he appreciated by the new boss as much as he is by us fans.
    • Well let’s hope the weather favours those making the journey and the predicted blank of snow holds off.  I can remember my early days pumped up full of beer travelling around the country to games in the back of freezing vans. The worst I remember was a crammed Luton huddled together in the compartment above the cab trying to stay alive. The spilt beer and urine had turned to ice sending everyone flying every time it stopped, took off or cornered. The only stops allowed were for petrol, or a pub so containers a pipe and funnel were essential equipment.  Although I did hire a new Ford Granda in 1980 for a 1 - 1 cup night match at Portsmouth. Terry Cochrane scored, latter we became good friends, but it was a toxic atmosphere and lost my bother who took off while being threatened. Drove around town until we found him being chased down the street by a few hundred agitated morons. Picked him up on the move but someone cracked the windscreen. I remember leaving work at lunch, drove down and back after the game and in to work next day. BORO mad back then.  
    • I didn't see the problem with it personally, whatever the rules actually are, I feel like it should be a goal. It's not a foul as its a challenge by his own player. It's not a head injury so it doesn't need immediate attention. And you're gonna have a hard time convincing me he's not making the most of that just to stop play anyway. Admittedly, he probably doesn't realise himself who's actually stood on his foot but note that by the time the shot hits the back of the net, there only seems to be one player who realises he's down and is asking for play to be stopped... the man who stood on his foot to begin with.
