Ridiculously over hyped and just lucky to have faced some very poor sides on the way to the semis - they really are no better than any England side since 66 and thatís the truth

We knew they werent better than most sides since 66 already. But they worked as a team and showed fight and spirit.

Unlucky lads.

Mental sentence. Implies they're better than the England team in 66... but worse than every England team since, even the years we failed to qualify for tournaments...? [:D]

I do think we were over hyped but we still could have done better if we stuck to playing football instead of hoofing it. I reckon we were missing a creative midfielder - Shelvey should have been in squad. But heyho,that's football - got to take disappointment on the chin.

You canít win a World Cup on grit an team spirit alone, you need a touch of class and a top class manager as well - we had neither. Our midfield has nothing to offer other than hard work an graft, and Croatia murdered us there once theyíd got a foothold in the game, and as much as I loved Southgate as a player for us heíll never be a top class manager.

We over performed, but as most didn't expect us to get past the QFs this was a very successful tournament.

Can we grow.....?

As for the "given" of beating France.....lets get some perspective 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿👍

Decent run in a mental World Cup competition, probably our best chance to nick it in my lifetime. We lacked a bit of quality and consistency when it mattered.

Lads played pretty well and gave us a bit of a lift in what seems like bleak times.

No shame, played the game, few extra days of hope and some pride restored.

Season up soon so football is coming home after all, we've just lost a couple of lions is all.
