    I'm in your camp. Around kickoff I'll most likely be driving to Mum, help her out with stuff, then heading out at 8pm and chances are the restaurant will have the final half on in the bar area, but I'll just be eating/social with my mum.

    I'm very "meh" about football. Much rather support the country / its sportmen and women in other sports than kicking a bag of wind about.

    I think going anywhere tonight you will find something related to the football. It's quite a big thing don't you know

    If you don't like it, stay home and go out tomorrow as normal service will be resumed

    I'm really looking forward to it. Kids hate how excitable I get and also how I make them stand up to sing the national anthem that said they can't wait either.

Never drank an alcoholic beverage in there (taken some home though...)! Even Fabio, the Italian owner has relented. If England get to the final, heíll put 5 Live on the radio out the back.

    After saying earlier in this thread I'd rather clap shit in my hands to watch it, I've just sat and watched the game with sister's hubby, he's well into football, he had to go for a nervous crap before the game and everything.

    Shame 'we' lost tho.

    Why didn't they just score more goals, or at least let fewer in?

    That's football I guess. If they'd taken those chances in the first half then it would've killed the game off and we'd all be looking forward to Sunday. As it was they all looked pretty tired in that second half and Croatia became the better team and took advantage of a couple of our defensive mistakes.



    Kane looked off colour again, I wouldn't be surprised if he took a knock in the Columbia game as he was quiet in the Sweden game as well.



    The guys played well and did us proud. Can't ask for much more. The future looks bright

    I think we got found out a little bit.

    They flashed a stat up near the end; 7 attempts on goal to our 1. Our set pieces were good, but we didnít pose enough of a threat in open play.

    Our defensive system relied heavily on our pace, which looked very vulnerable as we tired. I think Gareth needed a plan B that stabilised a little at the back and gave certain players more of a license to press forward without needing to fret about chasing back super-aggressively.

    As someone who loves following the football results, but has little interest in actually watching the games and generally loathes footballers, I found much to like in the maturity and attitude of Englandís players. For the first time in a generation, I feel like we over-achieved. Very encouraging.

    I think that's a pretty good summary of England's performances throughout the tournament. They could certainly threaten, and pull the opponents' defence all over the place, but the crucial kicking the ball at the target bit was a bit lacking. If they can sort that out for the next Euros they could do very well.

    Of course, Germany, Spain and Italy should have learned to be not rubbish by then, so it might be quite a tournament...

    Really pleased with how far we got, they did well. Southgate did a great job and I'm chuffed for him. I do however have to question the role he gave Kane in that game and also to some extent in the Sweden one too. Kane seemed to be the player holding back. Often when we broke he was the one on the edge of the box, or in some occasions further back than that. Sterling did a fair job - considering I can't stand him, but he isn't a goal threat. It didn't seem like the best idea to have him furthest forward and Kane well behind. That was especially true when the ball was being crossed. A great header of the ball and predator striker, is left on the edge of the box, when the smallest man on the pitch who couldn't hit a barn door for England was the man in the middle

    That's the world cup done for me now, all interest gone

    Well, look how wrong I was

    Russia does have issues with hooligans using the pretext of football games to turn up and fight each other, but there hasn't been any reports of such trouble at this tournament.

    I strongly suspect President Putin had a word with people to have a word with people to implicitly/explicitly threaten very grave consequences for anyone foolish enough to do anything violent. It looks like they got the message.

    For once, I am very glad to have been wrong about this issue.

    What you mean is that all the known Russian hooligans were sent on a free holiday to sunny Siberia.

    There were a couple of clips of the Russian police using reasonable force to contain a couple of over-excited (not English) football fans. By reasonable force, I mean they dished out a proper pasting before slinging them into a van for disposal, sorry, I meant processing.

    In a world of anti-Russian sentiment, video being recorded everywhere and lots of international media being present, Iíve been amazed at how quiet it has been.

    I was reminded of the run-up to the infamous 'Rumble in the Jungle' between Muhammed Ali and George Foreman.

    President (Dictator) Mubutu rounded up 1000 of Kinshasa's leading criminals under the stadium where the fight would take place. 100 were chosen at random and executed. It was made clear to the survivors that if any foreigner was robbed or threatened during the event, all of them would be killed. Kinshasa instantly became the safest place in the world for a week.

    I'm not saying that Putin killed anyone (during the last month), but he might have hinted that severe punishment could be served in the event of trouble, and it's not that important whether the people being punished are those responsible.
