    One thing I was thinking, I criticised Southgate for letting Italy back in to that final. Didn't see them off when they were all at sea, bottled it. But one thing I do like about him is his teams easily beat the teams they are expected to easily beat. How many times over the years have England struggled to win by 1 or 2 by absolute ****e teams?

    I'm guessing it's the 5 idiots sat in the VAR room?

    I hope Southgate points out the joke of VAR after the game.

    Anyone predicting 6-2 deserves to win a lot of money.

    Edit - unless it’s the VAR officials as mentioned

    Very good performance. Team play excellent, individuals look full of confidence. Credit Southgate, who gets all kinds of stick for who knows what, because he has created a team that looks more like a club side. Tougher tests to come hopefully, but dont underestimate Iran, we made them look second rate with the way we played.

    Enough said about VAR. Pathetic.

    The World Cup atmosphere is now officially here. People are dancing on the streets, beeping their horns, beet everywhere. Great to see.

    VAR really is a joke. Not giving the blatant penalty for England in the 1st half, then that soft one for Iran. Either give both of them, or neither of them. This inconsistency cannot continue (except that it will)

    That Dutch side doesn't look anything special. I normally get proved wrong but we'll see.

    Shame about Mane but that's still a decent Senegal side. They could turn the Dutch over here imo

    I do fancy the Dutch but it won’t be easy. Senegal will be a threat, loads of pace in forward positions…

    We’ve just placed a zillion on you giving this penalty - give it or die
