    Anyone watch the Derby game this eve?

    Sorry Mrs F just told me it wasn't Derby it was England. I seldom watch England play and now I remember why.

    Yep, looks like Derby coached Mason Mount well in how not to clear the first man

    Harsh...I mean apart from the white shirts, the complete absence of a midfield, the inability to take corners, the useless substitutions that changed nothing and not one shot on target...what other resemblance was there?

    Mind you...before Mrs.F and mac get excited, if England looked like Derby then Scotland are the tournament equivalent of Wycombe Wanderers...spirited rubbish. Still...Wales looked useful.

    I made that very comment during the game. Scotland had a good game plan and executed it perfectly with a lot of energy.

    England, on the other hand, apart from on a couple of occasions were slow, overly cautious, devoid of ideas and totally lacking in energy. They were, in a word, lethargic. Just like watching Derby.

    Conversely, I thought the defence and keeper did well. I think it would be a travesty if either Stones or Mings was dropped to make way for Maguire.

    I did make the point to Mrs F that there are few countries on earth that would be celebrating P1 W0 D1 L1 F 0 A 2. They'll probably still celebrate after they get beaten by a proper team (Croatia)

    I'm dreading England qualifying then playing France or Italy. I've said before I'm no great studier of the game but Italy look like the Real Deal

    She’d possibly been listening to ‘Cyclops’ Souness too much, AF...listening to him you’d have thought they’d won the tournament. Please tell me the Czech Republic match is on BBC...thought ITV’s coverage was dire.

    P.S. Wow...Hungary’s anthem is worse than ours!

    Your punishment is eating haggis until it oozes out of every orifice!!
    England's biggest indictment is that they couldn't score against us!!

    Classic, I'm going to share that picture tomorrow during my conference call, the project director and senior project manager are both Scottish and based up there, both tossers so I will give me great pleasure 👍
