Just had a read through the other sides rumour page and found it so incredibly infuriating.

Constant posts about England only performing well because of Henderson, Man of the match, best player in every game, the real captain etc. It's a joke!

Yes he's had a good tournament, full credit for decent performances that have certainly played a big part in the team success but not the best player in any of our matches. The best England players have been Trippier, Maguire, Kane, Lingaard and, in the last 2 games, Pickford.

I even read one outlandish post that England is basically Spurs, both Manchester teams and Liverpool. Wtf? They have 2 players only, the same as Leicester. One player (Arnold) won't feature again in the tournament and if we win he should not be entitled to call himself a world cup winner, same as Pope and Butland. Statistically, Everton (in the form of Pickford) have played more minutes this World Cup than Liverpools 2 players combined.

I'm all for supporting your own but that bias is quite remarkable.

I think both Trippier and Kane have been playing their hearts out in this world cup closely followed by Maguire.
I think it would be a tough call trying to point out an under achiever, Whilst being a little bit concerned regards the finishing that Sterling has shown us he does pose a big threat.
We are showing some great team spirit, but so are France and Belgium, I just hope we have enough to take us all the way.

So do I mate, i also think Stirling does a lot of running and never really a threat, buthey we have as good a chance as anyone, i would like to see us against Croatia in the next round Russia would be far too political for England, cheers.

Read a few posts now: With ref England, made up to reach the semi-finals, what I do not get though is why successive England Managers cannot get players to replicate their Club form. Until today Deli Alli compared with his own standards has been awful. We certainly need to improve our outfield general play. Finally does anyone else agree with me that Russia have to be on drugs.

Deli alli has had a poor season so it's not surprising he's struggling for England.

I've always said the most important player on the pitch is the goal keeper. If you're scoring a few goals but letting more in you don't get 3 points. Now flip it and you're saving more than you are scoring. You may get a point. Pickford has been brilliant and the goal he let in against Belgium. I think he got told make it look convincing and he's had everybody fooled. We never wanted to win that game so we had to lose. We couldn't get people booked we aren't dirty footballers. The finishing second due to fair play was never going to happen.

I bet those Liverpool comments last week about Pickford are biting our neighbours really hard on their big Red arses.

To be fair to Sterling, he has worked his socks off and made some really intelligent runs and got into some fantastic positions but has just been unlucky with his final touch or over run the ball. He is a whisker away from getting a few goals I believe. Ali has also started to show his capabilities and has also worked his socks off. When you think of past England teams and how they struggled to break down mediocre teams and were often overwhelmed by superior teams, then credit has to go to Southgate for having the bottle to play out from the back in the way they have and also to the younger players throughout the team who were given no chance by most people prior to the finals beginning.

Never rated Henderson and I still don't.

Son of Grumpy. I am with you mate but one game at a time. I believe we have the ability to get past Croatia but I honestly believe the World Cup will be won by either France or Belgium.
