Apologies, my intention here wasn't to infer that England is just as bad, more that nationalist papers do what nationalist papers do; promote nationalism. It is a bit pathetic but that's their raison d'etre and if I was fluent in nationalist papers from outside England, I could have perhaps came up with a better example.

Don’t worry buddy it was a very much tongue in cheek remark not to be taken seriously 👍

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!

I’m going through more emotions than a teenager at the moment. Ranging from quite confident to really nervous. Right now I’ve been reading up on Italy’s CB pairing. As good as they are they are quite old, but we know that already. But the more I think about it the more certain I am that Sterling or Saka will get past them once or twice where I think it will result in a penalty for England. (So expect more conspiracy theories)

Today's the day.

The biggest match England have played since 1966.

One win from glory, one win from Southgate getting a knighthood.

Italy are probably the toughest opponents we've faced, so it's going to take some effort to overcome them.

Come on, England!

It would sound like it, because I'd be shocked if he dropped Shaw and Walker after their past few games.

I'd be very worried about the midfield though with a 5 at the back

A quick word on the Scots, having lived here since 1987: it's impossible to tell where banter ends and Anglophobia starts. Some people just absolutely hate the English and everything south of the Border with an unalloyed passion. I remember a woman saying Vauxhall using the Union flag on their billboard ads made her physically sick. It runs that deep.

And for any English people feeling bad about hearing fans booing foreign anthems at Wembley, that's nothing compared to Scots booing God Save The Queen - technically their own anthem - at Hampden. It's absolutely ear-splitting. Not just a boorish minority, but every man, woman and child (sadly) in the stadium. Every single time.

Onto the match - is anyone actually looking forward to it? I am dreading it! A win would be great, but I suspect it'll be either 90 or 120 minutes of anguish and nail-chewing. Like the Brighton game but without the safety net of the play-offs if it all went wrong...

    • That's not from Wilder's mouth like the other section is though, that's just the Northern Echo writers opinion which is about as good as anyone's on here... with some notable exceptions 🤠
    • "Paddy McNair generally lined up as the left of the Teessiders’ three centre-halves last season, but the Northern Irishman is more naturally right-footed and is set to compete with Anfernee Dijksteel for the right-hand side centre-half spot next term" Taken from the Echo article on the same topic, they seem convinced it's either Dijksteel or Paddy.
    • I wonder if we'll see one of them used in Howson's position as preseason continues? We had a couple of links with players in that position (Chalobah I think?) ages ago, but we haven't seen any for ages. It may be that we want to try one of McNair or Dijksteel there.
    • It  could mean one of them will  be sold? If it was up to me McNair would be my choice . When Paddy played rcb on Saturday he was okay but when Dijksteel played the second half in that role he was much better and linking up with Izzy. Obviously it was Bishop Auckland but I still think Anth looked more suited to the role    
    • Think he just wants more completion/rotation so may be a case of either fry & Lenihan and either Dijksteel or McNair for example. I agree I wouldn’t be surprised to see us try get two left sided CB to compete one experienced and one younger.
