Southgate
at 23:51 31 Aug 2018

Pleading with Premier League clubs to play English youngsters, or he'll have to resort to looking at Championship players because his pool is so small.

How desperate can you get...if these youngsters were good enough, they'd be selected.

Also, how does this fit with Mawson's claim that Southgate told him to leave us (where he was a regular) and join a Prem club (eg to warm the bench at Fulham) if he wanted an England career.

Magic number in the Championship?
at 08:08 20 Aug 2018

We've been using the 40pt "safety total" for the past 7 seasons as a minimum target.
Statistically, what's the (assumed) magic number in the Championship?
How's about if we say 46/38 x 40 = 48pts?
If we beat Leeds, we'll be 5th the way there after just 4 games 😊

"We mustn't forget that Belgium are 7yrs ahead of this England side in their development"
Why do Wales keeping beating them then Glenn, you Muppet! 😁

If Belgium hadn't decided to have a rest for half an hour, that would have been an even more embarrassing score.

How long will it take for "meaningless game" to get mentioned?

Without doubt, the DELUSION will continue...and long may it last, as its COMEDY GOLD fair play

The over-reaction...
at 13:34 11 Jul 2018

...and assumption its in the bag which has been promoted by the English media must this time be reaching an all time high.

Its the usual mix of arrogance, delusion and desperation for a modicum of success that every other nationality associates with the English (nice one Goran Ivanisovic). Does failure after failure after failure justify this inflated bandwagon?

It's fine to be optimistic, but why go banging on about it so much!

ITS COMING HOME, ITS COMING HOME.....

England win a game....
at 08:57 19 Jun 2018

...at the World Cup against a very poor side.
And (once again) the players & media behave as if they've already lifted the Cup.
Is this due to accumulated desperation from 52 years of repeated failures at WCs & Euros?

Wouldn't it be better to keep some perspective in order to soften the inevitable disappointment that's just around the corner when they meet some quality.

Or why not over-react and enjoy a win against poor opposition, whilst the going's good?

Unlike the media, my English mates have decided to keep a lid on it, as they know their football.

Get extra large advertising boards put behind the goalmouths and play our "secret weapon" Renato....he's bound to score a scorcher or two.

Tom Carroll & Tammy Abraham
at 17:39 31 Mar 2018

Both woeful against Spurs.
Both more than decent 2nd half today.
Tom's distribution was impressive.
Tammy very unlucky twice against De Gea.
Inconsistency rules!

Oh, yeah, and why do we sit back & admire these "big" teams, give them a head start and only then decide its time to get in their phucking faces!!!

Whingeing Aussies (not Poms)
at 13:50 13 Mar 2018

Its been really funny watching tiny Eddie Jones whingeing in the wake of England's 2 defeats in the 6 Nations. The bloke doesn't seems to realise that his pre-tournament "plan for world domination" is a brilliant motivational speech for the opposition.

Now we have an Aussie called Mooy (who, I hear you ask?) saying we're the most defensive team he's ever come across in Europe. Complete & utter plum.

FA Cup Final

If Rochdale fail to win tonight it will be our destiny to knock Spurs out in the QF because we can't have one team playing the FA Cup Final on their home ground, just wouldn't be fair.

Swans 3-2 Spurs (or Swans 6-1 Rochdale) 😁

14th Palace 27pts & GD -17.
15th Swans 27pts & GD -17.
So, what decides this?
Is it goals FOR?
It can't be number of wins, because we have 7 and Palace have 6.

FA Cup team selection?

If (no, when!) we beat Sheffield Wednesday, do you think Carlos will be tempted to select the Premier League team for the Quarter Final? It falls on the same weekend as the Southampton game (17 March) which would therefore have to be re-scheduled.
