I can't see him having any more luck here, tbh.

Hahah yes I agree, and of course that point is equally applicable to Woodgate

England were absolutely shocking tonight.

Must be taking defensive tips from Middlesbrough.

And attacking tips absolutely hopeless

might be a good thing......they are still young and if they stop believing the hype and just get their heads down and graft, they will get there.....with luck....

It doesn't help that so many of the back 5 are currently out of form in the league. I've no idea of Trippier but otherwise it's pretty out of shape.

Great win for Denmark against the Swiss on saturday. Wasn't a great match and we had to thank Schmeichel in the end. Three world class saves Darren Randolph style ensured we won. Wasn't pretty though. Almost Pulis style but I can somewhat live with that when it comes to the national team especially against a good side. Now we need Ireland to take points off the Swiss. That would almost see Denmark and Ireland qualify for the Euros. Fingers crossed @Neverbefore

Good boy 😉 

Btw - That was some really good assist from Eriksen! 

Typical him .. Anonymous for 80+ minutes, then pops up with a game changer 😄

Yes indeed SD. I think if we can somehow fluke a win against the Swiss it would put us both through and make the final game in Dublin a dead rubber between us. That would be a bizarre ending to the group but a very welcome one.

Did you watch the game against Bosnia @Blanco? Hate to be down about the NT but its difficult to see where we are going to get a win from. Connolly looked good but raw on Sat, but we need a Richie Dunne vs Russia type performance I feel to get anything from this game.

Assume you mean Georgia @boroie? Yes I did unfortunately and I thought it was dire from us. I did say if we could “fluke” a win against the Swiss we would be through along with Denmark (taking it for granted they will beat Gibraltar). Stranger things have happened in sport before and will happen again. I’m just hoping it is our turn to defy all logic tomorrow evening. I always look on the positive side with both Ireland and Boro.

Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett have been sentenced at Derby Magistrates Court after admitting drink-driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident. They have been ordered to carry out 180 hours of unpaid work, 12-month community orders and disqualified from driving for two years.

Seems reasonable to me. Note that it said somewhere that Lawrence had recently lost his mother and had been drinking more in her absence. Not the kind of thing you usually hear in these situations when we so often dehumanise footballers to the extreme because of how much money they make. Gives a better picture as to why Derby should choose to rehabilitate him, whether that is ultimately the reason they have chose to do so or not.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
