More or less what Keano said to the great irritation of that bellend whatshishandle who used to be a fitba'er, black chap, very stupid, you know the one, all ar$e and trousers, talks ballix.

Heard a debate on talk sport about the FA not inviting the 66 team to the final BEFORE the semi.
Let's be clear that I dont believe the actual side thinks like that but the supporters and media are all part of the set up as far as I'm concerned.
It's that sort of rhetoric that always makes England a very difficult country to support.

Ian Wright. Extremely dumb individual. I don't have ITV but one of the lads was telling me he was losing it big time with Keane. Keane would know well what a fool this guy is and knows well how to wind him up. :D

Wright took the bait faster than a UAFC poster.

England are hard to support for anyone holding a British Passport and are not English .

Hijack the the British National Anthem,British Television Companies and British Press for a start . Then to compound the situation even the most limited talented player on any team is elevated to World Class .

On this occasion Southgate has a element of humility which is rare in the English and the team had only a couple of egos out of control .

Their major failing was the inability to convert chances to goals and failing to keep the opposition out of the box .

But the fact remains their progress in the Competition maintained the interest.

In truth there has been little attractive football most playing cross field shuffle ball both in attack and defence with the French having the best across field shuffle defence and the ability to kick ball beyond the opposition defence and into space for their front players to chase .

Proving the old truth if you can defend you are always in with a chance to win .

OK Bogman, talk me through how great France are. I'll give you a start:

- struggled to get past mighty Australia 2-1, Beat the mighty Peruvian Pub Team 1-0, bored the living sweet Jesus out of the fitba world in an honourable 0-0 with Baconland, then produced their freak game 4-3 over the Ancient Argies before a decent but boring 2-0 against U'ragay and a less than convincing 1-0 over the more interesting Belgique.

So, batter on Bogger, tell me how they get you all excited and your panties in a bunch. G'wan. :roll: I'm waiting....

Well I've enjoyed watching them. They have the most exciting player we've seen since Messi came on the scene. They have the most complete team in the competition. They are in the final and deservedly so and the bullsh1t in the world can't change that so you can shove yer anti-French w-nkology up yer hairy old hole.

England beat 2 no hopers and a decent Swedish team, draw with Colombia and lose 3 games to quality. 5/10

Generous Merv.
I'm delighted to report that my normal antipathy towards Perfidious Albion was back at its usual level for the semifinals and today's.
