The mental "baggage" ex England players have 18:10 - Jul 11 with 1061 viewsdickythorpe

They should hang their heads in shame that they never realised or fulfilled their potential.
This England side isn't special but I do think they've had so much false dawns that Southgate has got the players he wants.
Lampard, Rooney,Gerrard, Beckham,Terry, et al had opportunities but messed them up due to egomania.
If England win tonight then they've done it collectively.

This is without a doubt the poorest World Cup I have witnessed, no axe to grind regarding England, don't care either way if they win it or not

You might think I've forgotten, but one day, when you least expect it, my time will come.

Yes, yes I certainly do, the competition as a whole has been a pile of crap, one or two tidy games doesn't change that

If the final was something like Brazil v Germany I doubt many would be saying anything about the quality.

This World Cup has been great. Not perhaps in terms of there being no outstanding side, but there's been drama, controversy and a hell of a lot of exciting games. Far more than in most World Cups.

England winning wouldn't change that, no matter how desperately some will be trying to play it down.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

Not much VAR since group stages. Funny that?

Lampard and Gerrard could never play well together, yet no manager every had the balls to drop either of them.

Comparing that group to who England have now, the teams are worlds apart, yet it's this team that has gone further than the so called 'Golden Generation' ever went.

It’s not been a bad World Cup. By enlarge the smaller teams have been organised and have come to have a go. A few teams have been tonked, but that has happened in the past and will happen again in the future. The fact that Germany, Argentina, Brazil and a few other teams went out earlier than they would have expected is their tough luck and just rewards for simply not being good enough. Would have preferred to have seen a Belgium Croatia final, but it is what it is.

I missed the game tonight as was working, but I caught 2 mins of the post match analysis and am sure that I heard 9 of England’s 12 goals came from set pieces, that was a surprise for me and doesn’t say much about their creativity.

Think you're right there.

For whatever reason England struggle to produce your classic #10. The Modric/Rodriguez/Totti types. Probably haven't had a top class one since Gascoigne. Then when faced with resolute defending they end up relying on set pieces or long balls to break teams down rather than flair or guile. It'll get you so far, but no more.

They had one in Paul scholes but played him on the left wing until he got pissed off and quit.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

Ironically I think they had one sitting on the bench last night, but unfortunately for him and for them this World Cup came around 2 years too soon. Loftus-Cheek will blossom into the creative #10 that they are currently lacking, a player whose development owes more to the unsupervised hours he spent playing in a South London cage football court than to Chelsea's youth academy.

No it hasn't. It reviews every goal, penalty (or not) etc. regardless. It just so happens that there hasn't been an obviously incorrect refereeing decision in the later games. It's also noticeable that there's been far less wrestling at corners/free kicks as the tournament's gone on.
