Do we think England will draw or lose today?
England have never won their opening game at the Euros in 9 attempts.

This is a major tournament and it's England. When did we last play well in a big one. Even, just once?

We have to start sometime Warminster. Will Roy deploy our best team?

I don't quite remember Mexico 70. Didn't qualify '74. Didn't qualify '78. (Yes I know these are World Cups, not the Euros). Rubbish ,82. QF '86. SF '90. Didn't qualify '94. Rubbish '98. Two QFs under Sven 2002 and 2006. Rubbish 2010. Rubbish 2014.

That's 12 World Cups and we've made the QF or better 4 times. Not exactly Germany are we?

Perhaps more damning to say we have got past the QFs once in 12 World Cups. And we lost that.

A very ordinary looking Russian side we should win this easy.

I was desparately hoping I'd be wrong. We almost always phuck it up somehow. Even when we play well. We should have been out of sight.

Oh well. Bring on the Taffs!

Why is Kane taking the corner kicks?

warminsterclaret
11-06-2016, 10:51 PM
Because he's Abel

Ha ha ha. Why isn't Roy telling him he should be on the end of corner kicks and not taking them?

That wasnt a fair result was it, we played well enough and created enough to have won the match. Certainly before it came to the 92nd minute anyway!
I dont like Kane pratting away all our corners and free kicks, Roy has got to say something about that. And why is he playing as 1 up front, why was there no Vardy or even Rashford as a sub in that 2nd half. I wasnt sure about Rooney playing all over the park but he hardly put a foot wrong to be honest, and Im impressed that our two full backs constantly got forward as much as possible.

yeah...England were impressive - in as much as Russia were Mediocre.

The lack of threat in the final 3rd meant that regardless of any domination, the win was never secured.
