    Completely unbiased view here. England are awful. Likely qualify but will take a battering soon afterwards. You heard it here

    Looking like Ecuador in the last 16 if they can avoid defeat to Senegal in the final group game. Thought they looked better than the Dutch yesterday.

    Will be ought in last eight round. Being honest most of your players aren’t interested. I’d say they’re giving about 60% at best

    Thanks for your observations but England are doing absolutely fine thanks.

    We'd have to lose the final group game by 4 goals not to qualify for the next stage and that's when the competition really starts. The sides with tournament experience and in with a serious chance of making the latter stages don't stress about the group matches as it's all about getting the job done.

    If we make the quarters then that's about a par score with anything beyond always seen as a bonus.

    You’re more than welcome Jamster. Can’t have you getting your hopes up too much. I’d hate to see you being too disappointed <laugh>

    The disappointing thing with England is they have the creative players to possibly win the thing if they just Bielsa'd it and went for it every game. Sure they'd lose every now and then but if they got themselves on a good run they could be unstoppable.

    Instead we have Southgate who is just a coward hoping not to get beat against sides he doesn't think we can bully.

    Maybe but personally believe many of those players are over rated by the English media. Wouldn’t be the first time that’s happened

    You must be watching it in the science fiction channel. Pundits hear on a slightly different line of thought. Roy Keane being a prime example <laugh>

    England were second best v the US. Their midfield cut ours to shreds with better passing and movement. Adams was a star.

    You’re not listening to the right pundits. Other assertions.
    Declan Rice - the best, most complete midfielder in the world.
    Bellingham - world at his feet, worth 150 million plus.
    Kane, Sterling, Saka - No county has a better front three
