Now who’s indulging in whataboutary 😉

 I’ve decided to chill out and a bit of self reflection. 
I was too tied up in the #anyonebutengland which is vile at the least. And I’ve decided my obsession with the Scots is just as bad as their obsession with the English and it’s not healthy (on either side) 

After reading all the negative comments on here about what should’ve been a joyous occasion on Wednesday night, it really hit a nerve that the jocks seem get a free pass but that is a me problem. 
So I apologise, move on and it’s nothing but positivity from now on. 
I have my kids, some face paint, a bucket load of pizza and hopefully something to remember

Well as I said in another post (probably on the ENG V ITA thread) for as long as I've been around I think its been a given that the home nations just don't like each other. Our media hype up the rivalry and we buy into it...too much sometimes.

I think thats probably more acceptable though. Kind of like arguing and fighting in the family, as long as we can be on our best behaviour when the neighbours come round. 😉

It is unhealthy to obsess over anything, so congrats on reaching a calmer state of mind. Probably just as well considering what we're going to be like tomorrow! 😨😱

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 💪

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

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 👍

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)

Sounds like Foden could be out of the final with a foot injury. To be fair, he probably doesn't make the starting 11 for this one but a great player to bring on nonetheless.

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!

Rumours that Grealish and Trippier are starting.

Where have you seen this? Wouldn't be surprised to see tripper play

They were talking about it on TalkSport 15 minutes ago.

Probably 5 at the back if it is correct

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

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

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
