Euro 2016


#361

How Wilshire is there, and playing is remarkable - he’s been injured all year and is shite.

Huge 10mins for England or infamy awaits.


#362

Roy H is probably thinking they have it infamy …

Kane’s set pieces are a joke all tournament.


#363

The boos, the boos… they will be lynched.


#364

Kane was rubbish from what I saw. How are they always this rubbish?


#365

That is unbelieveable.


#366

Brilliant stuff


#367

Those guys will be slaughtered!

When are they going to realise that the EPL is ordinary and the best players are foreign? When will they stop putting ordinary players on a pedestal and making them out to be Messi like. Dose of reality long overdue.
Media slaughter them and then wonder why they can’t perform under pressure …


#368

There won’t be a chip frozen in Iceland tomorrow!


#369

Hodgson gone also. Resigned after result. Hardly surprising after probably the worst result in their history


#370

Was last Friday not the worst result?!


#371

Having lost to Iceland,the F.A. have moved swiftly. To aid preparation for the next World Cup, friendlies have already been arranged against Lidl and Aldi.


#372

For once I agree with Dunphy (the rubbery aul b.ollix), it wasn’t that huge of a shock. Iceland have some very good players at some fairly top clubs, have done for years. Add to that organisation to a high degree, athleticism to a high degree, and a very good coach.

They beat a well-tipped team (Austria) & drew with Portugal, who will surely be in the semis at least. England had a handy group because Russia were brutal, they got out of jail against Wales & had Slovakia as the other team. If we had that group we’d have 6 points & not been playing France in Lyon at 2oc in the 2nd rd.


#373

The internet is rather entertaining tonight…


#374

The interwebber was invented for nights like tonight… :grin:

#375

Brilliant!
Every little helps… As da man said.


#376

I think it is too simplistic to say the English players are not good enough. They perform at a much higher level but tonight they were abysmal as a collective.

I think they are paralysed with fear at the knock out stage of tournaments by the repercussions of failure.


#377

How many would get near a German or Italian team … Iceland even :blush:

Harte? Cahill? Walker (defending)?, Rose? Smalling? Wilshere? Kane? Sterling???


#378

Half of their starting line up play for a team that bottled a PL run in and even blew 2nd place. Sterling is a totally overrated one dimensional winger who will slide down the divisions. Kane is an ordinary striker in a poor league - woeful header tonight. Cahill has been carried by Terry for years. Sturridge is not a man for the trenches and Wilshere didn’t have anything like enough game time last year.

Other than that they’re not a bad side …


#379

Jaysus when Dubnphy reeled off their stats in knockout stages it was alarming, how do they manage to convince themselves and good few others that they are contenders for these tournaments.


#380

Not that it’s surprising but the England humiliation tripe being handed out is disrespectful to Iceland. They did dump the Dutch out afterall, got through a harder group than England and we’re more than good for their win.
