Thread: O/t - them!

  1. #1

    O/t - them!

    I didn't think for one minute that they had a scoobys chance in hell, but having seen the performances of Brazil, Spain, Germany, France and Argentina so far, I'm getting rather uneasy about the prospects of thon mob south of the border. Particularly given the draw they are a gimme to get to the quarters regardless of the result they get v Belgium.

    They can't, can they? Please say it ain't so!

    Up until last night, i wasnt bothered if they were about to win it. But now they think they have won it already with one of the worst performances of the cup so far, i really hope someone comes along and puts them back in their place!

    england have got no chance of getting anywhere near winning the world cup. they acted as if they had just beaten brazil or something last night. dont get me wrong tunisia are tricky but if they didnt win, the media would have been blasting them. they almost drew it!

    they should beat panama and leave it to the belgium game but even if they get out the group once they get hit with someone half decent they will bottle it! they arent as good as they think they are and better teams will exploit them.

    hope panama do an iceland on them!

    The top teams don't always start well, no sure about Brazil but the others you mentioned will improve.
    As for the sassenachs it always amazes me that so called lesser teams show them so much respect.
    Keown was jizzing his knickers at 1-0 then criticising them when they were running through treacle in the second half. Most of that second half they couldnt get the ball off Tunisia. They do have pace and firepower though.
    But too early to start worrying James 😎

    England were pretty poor last night.

    The draw is opening up for them. Easy run now to quarters and Brazil and Germany both got potential problems in their group

    Kane could carry them quite far. Winning it not easy though!

    And he (semi) flogged a goal. Good result in the end though. Looked decent enough in the second half but can't see them troubling any of the "big boys". Fingers crossed though.

    It was a good, clever free kick but the keeper should have saved it.

    They are not a good team. As usual they have set pieces as their get out of jail card. No danger of them doing anything in this tournament.

    Englinshire might get far.
    Definitely getting out of their group.
    Can they fluke it against Brazil or Germany?
    Can they steal it against Argentina? Argentina go down to 10 men?
    Can they beat Russia in Moscow after Kane suffers food poisoning mysteriously?

    ?You're joking!

    It was a strange attempt at saving as he dived behind the line and then tried to challenge the goal line technology.

    Other than that though he did well. Good win for Japan

    What's concerning me so far is that a. England weren't bad (albeit against poor opponents) in the first half on Monday and created a shedload of chances whilst b. The teams we rely on have been crap so far - Spain were bloody awful last night.

    I think the draw could open up for England. Group H has no big teams and could be Japan or Senegal in 2nd round.

    After Germany lost the other day it could be that England end up with possible quarter v Serbia/ Mexico.

    Best chance they’ll have for a while to do something.

    Semis and final will always be tough through. Who knows if they have been practicing penalties!!

    Haha! Well their manager knows a thing or two about penalties, hopefully he's been passing on his wisdom!

    England officially have the worst record of penalty shoot outs at the World Cup finals. Lost 3 out of 3.

    It's very open and they can win it, very easy group they got and also the way the fixtures fell means the Belgium fixture could be meaningless, next round is weak too, jammy gits

  17. #17
    That's Argentina basically out. Holy hell.

    Not that big a surprise, they were close to not qualifying, terrible in both games, manager not the best, not a happy camp

    Croatia a solid side though

    Agree Shedka - they aint out yet but with that manager and system they wont win anything.

    It has reminded me of our last 3 or 4 seasons ........

    Kroos rescues Germany when 20 seconds from effectively going out. Jeezo.
