      I now remember why I took a long sabitical form this place probably best to take another one until the season starts.

      Just do it then Walt.

      Don't know why it has to be announced.

      You know what England did show... play acting and cheating :) More so than Neymar!

      I think some of our diving is dreadful, especially Kane.

      How the f**k can a big 6 foot 2 fairly chunky lad like him go down so easy?

      Hoddle on the commentary loves it too. Saying it's excellent play just waiting for contact and going down.

      Also thought Kane made a bit of a foul in the box before he was being ridden like a pony.

      Getting all sensitive now because Henderson was overdramatic? So what, Gerrard also did that plenty of times
      Atleast Hendo didn't get spun by a spider.

      Don’t know what it is exactly but there’s something I’m finding extremely likeable about this England side. Think you’ve got to go back to 96 or before to find a time I actually wanted England to do as well as I do now.

      It's simple for me, they've dropped all the ego's and are giving the youth a go.

      If this was Hodge or Alardyce they'd still be trying to shoehorn Rooney into any position.

      I get it Riba, you finally won a knockout round, so you can now even laugh at it! Welcome to my world. Winning is fun. Double moral standards are boring.

      Henderson overacted, but he rightly went down for the headbutt/uppercut/chinned.. whatever term you want to use for that off the ball incident that should have been red carded.

      He did not cheat.

      Columbia were disgraceful. How they didn't have several players sent off for numerous yellow card offences I have no idea. It was nonsense.

      Pathetically, it is clear that this was their game plan. Even their coaching staff got in on the antics.

      Several incidents should have been checked by VAR. At least Columbia justice was done and they lost that game. Hang your heads in shame Columbia.

      What does Sterling bring to this England side?
      Glad we won, but I think Rashford is more clinical.

      pathetic calling your own club captain a cheat when he was headbutted

      Holding his face though? Come on mate no way a little butt like that sends you down like Tyson has just twatted you in the nose. It's embarrassing.

      Especially when you watch MMA and people are taking full on kicks to the face and just carrying on like nothings happened.

      Hendo was like a work horse all game.
      Fantastic performance from him.. I am a big Hendo critic.
      I don't think he should be taking a penalty though.
      You never fancy him to score those.
      These high pressure situations may eventually help him to one day be able to.
      I just would rather him to score a penalty at 3-0 up just to get his penalty confidence up first.

      I know...

      their talent is only as good as it is because they are wankers we need a couple of wankers. No seriously we are just to nice we need a bit of nasty in the team since Stevie and Luis and Jamie have left we just lack for a want of a better word "bite"

      Defensively he was good but he can be painfully predictable at times. He came forward at one point and I think every single person in the stadium knew he would try a cross pass and fail it, and he did just that after some reticence. I've learned to like him as a player and I love to have him in the squad, but he does have his limitations. In the right system though he's very useful.

      I'd rather have it the other way and have players who people are scared to go near because they know they'd be getting hacked down at the next chance or filled in in the tunnel.

      Can you see a Vinny Jones going down holding his face from something stupid like that.

      That’s a little unfair Diego, he literally had no option besides sending a cross towards Sterling with the hopes that he would somehow get on the end of it.

      That is pretty much Hendo in a nutshell, a work horse, a world class/exceptional work horse, same with Wijnaldum and Milner. You want at least one of them in your midfield imo.

      Acts such a hard man and the 'ultimate lad' for Leicester yet when it comes to a penalty shootout in the World Cup Vardy's nowhere to be seen.

      I don't care if I'm being petty over him or the fact I don't know how England choose their penalty takers - if I sense that he's a c**t I'll say it. And he's a proper c**t.
