The Spain v Croatia game is fucked. 

Michael Oliver in the middle and Stewart Attwell on VAR. 

Indeed....

Why wasn't Simon pulled up for leaving his line for the penalty

Of course pressure and confidence is all in the head, that’s kind of the point. 

I mean the actual concept of pressure and confidence. People / players believe in it because they constantly get told they exist.

There really is no excuse for an under par performance in a supposedly big game.

Likewise, there is also no reason as to why a striker who has scored 1 in his last 10 should treat a chance any differently to if he'd scored, say, 7 or 8 in his last 10.

Players are happy to believe any old guff. Forever looking for apparent explanations. And, of course, sports psychologists are delighted to entertain such nonsense as it keeps them in a job!

Good chance I may have a nap during the Slovenia v Denmark game, preparing for the eternal disappointment of watching England

England game tonight.William Hill.

They have their Epic odds offering even money on an England win, usually 1/2 or 4/9, maximum bet of £10. I've taken that as it'll keep me interested in the game at least.

 

 

New to this England supporting malarkey are we....

The depressing familiarity of England fans being involved in trouble less so.

Wonders if they have weakened the coke not just the beer

Not so much new, more like estranged, disinterested, disenfranchised.

On another note, the commentary on both channels is abysmal, imo. 

Need the Sky commentators

I'm not over enamoured with them either. Goodman and Hinchcliffe? It's as though these TV companies have a death wish.

Too many split arses on comms

 

Yes. And that's just Ally McCoist. It just all comes across as false and corny. Could be I'm just getting to be one of them grumpy old gits I always used to call out.

 

Now in other news, I had a bit of a result yesterday myself. I've just had my TV licence fee notification. Watched Lineker last night and was livid at how much he gets paid v my contribution and calculated that it took 30,000 licence fee payers to pay his salary of £5m. Don't know where I got the £5m from btw.

But that was wrong of course, he's only on £1.35m from what I could find anyway so it only takes around 8,000 of us. Felt so much better after that.

I'm off now to check what Joey Barton is saying about Eni Aluko on X.

It's Gareth's master plan. It's not 4-2-3-1. 

Alexander-Arnold is playing right back and it's 5-4-1. He's shit himself in the need to put at least a point on the board after Denmark drew

TAA is doing the Henderson role. He’s protecting that right side and allowing Saka to play right up the pitch.

He’s not been very good. As soon as he takes the ball on the half in midfield he gets in trouble.

Bellingham has been great, but he’s killing Foden because there is no pattern to his movement.

An amazing stat. Kane has touched the ball twice!!!

Our out is Walker and Saka who are absolutely terrorizing the left side of Serbia.

Typical of Southgates England, score a good goal then sit back and enjoy the view. Got lucky the Serbs couldn’t get a shot away 

Did we only get one shot on target? How TAA takes that free kick ahead of Foden or even Trippier.

If we're playing 2 in midfield, Rice needs a more accomplished 6 or 8 beside him.

Guehl done very well next to Stones but I think Serbia will be more confident coming out in the second half and pressure our midfield.

I'd swap Palmer for Trent and play 3-3 up front, with Rice holding and Palmer/Bellingham in front.

Saka playing beautifully and ask Foden to come inside.

Trippier is not helping Foden as he's having to turn onto his right too often
