The most depressing part of it all is knowing I will be 44 for the next summer world cup. Sad

1 shot on goal was terrible. Could have had a few more in first half if decision making was better. Really just capitulated in 2nd half. Great to have a proper run at it though.

All the "you done us proud" posts drive me to despair & epitomise everything about why as a team we are so mediocre. Absolutely bottled it yet again! So frustrating.

Southgate (with his ridiculous waistcoat) & the squad will be revered as national heroes for reaching the semis despite only beating two crap teams in the group stage, lost to Belgium's B team, scraped through on pens against a rubbish Colombia side and then beat an absolutely average Sweden team in the quarters.

Dominated the first half, created loads of chances we didn't capitalise on then in the second half, Croatia get a goal, and we revert to type - shitting our pants every time we get the ball / Croatia get the ball in our half.

Anyone who says "WELL DONE LADS EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS REACHING THE SEMI FINALS YOU'VE MADE THE NATION PROUD" is a cunt.

Not at all bitter by the way

Agree 100%. Got a bye to the semi-final because loads of top teams bottled this World Cup. Playing Croatia is more akin to a last 16 knockout game at any other World Cup.

Sterling is the Miles Davis of the side. It’s the chances he doesn’t make.

Would love a John Sitton hot take on Kyle Walker.

^^ That.

Croatia were there for the taking, game should have been over by half-time, if either the Kane or Lingard chances were taken Croatia were never coming back from 2-0. Croatia were a mess first half.

True. All the hype around Kane….I Don't think he justified his selection the last 3 games. I'd have gone with Vardy. Midfield worked hard but no real quality in there. Lingard was shite. Henderson did his job though. Maguire and Stones were positives for me.
The team gave their all but did ultimately bottle it. As soon as I saw their attitude after half time (sitting back protecting their lead instead of giving everything for a second goal) I knew it was over for us. Looking forward to more of the Under 20 side being given a chance.

Thought Pickford was one of the few who actually gave a shit. Reminded me of the Butcher and Pearce attitude.

3rd place play off, Sterling awful yet again, god knows how he managed to score a load of goals at Man City last season, probably because he has De Bruyne to help him out a bit. Constantly losing the ball, taking strikes but almost always hitting the defender, no ideas, generally p**s poor
