For all the non footie fans out there.... who cares? it's only a game!
Hey, come on, let us enjoy it.

I couldn't care less about wine, don't see the point in wasting money on it... But I understand there are people that love it.

Each to their own :cool:

I chose to clean out the piggies and do all the syringe feeding and meds. It was way less stressful hearing us lose than watching us lose. Youth and inexperience lost out tonight. But they’ve restored our national pride in our national team and highlighted the home grown talent outside the premier league. And Gareth Southgate has confounded all the naysayers. So all in all it’s been a positive experience.

I know, bad second half..... Midfield went missing, something isn't right there you can't play three in the middle and not create chances from open play like we did tonight. But overall a young side,

Croatia had older more experienced players and found the space well,They forced us back into a five and stretched us. The kept ball well. Tactically Croatia were bang on after break...

Gutted
I don't think it's age or experience that is the issue. It should have been an easy match for us as long as we didn't give in to them and play their way, we needed to continue the push and force them to play how we want. At the end of 60 mins we had one shot on target to their 7, just didn't create enough chances from the opportunities we had. So today I wake up filled with disappointment and anxiety. Had we played better I would have been happy with the result

Those stats are telling aren't they.... I know that feeling, been gutted all day. Can't wait for the season to start now, we got you second game Kelly I think :)

I am proud I really am and I think they really tried and I feel far more happier seeing they care more so than previous generations. They seem a really close genuine bunch who left everything out on the pitch - I think the kicker is the route was there for us for once in a way it never has been, we missed all the 'superpowers' so to speak. We won't have a better chance and I think it is opportunity not grasped that hurts and the fact I loved every minute and it is over :(

I am very proud of them as a team, they have achieved something amazing and in the other games we went out and we played well. We didn't always get the results we would like but we gave it all and that's what matters. I would rather have seen them play like they did against Colombia to come out of the tournament

I would say prepare to be trounced buy whilst we have Harry "slabhead" Maguire and Jamie Vardy we have of course lost Mahrez now. It will be interesting to see what impact that has on the team as I don't think he's been such a positive force for the past season and half

I don’t give a hoot about football whatsoever, but I have Croatia in the world cup sweep at my work (I do like a sweep!) so I’m pretty happy. I am struggling with money this month due to my poor budgeting skills and unexpected expenses so the money I win (you win something for 1st, 2nd and 3rd) will be helpful for pig veggies and hay. Everyone I know who watches football said England did well though :)

Hoping for a croatia win for you :) Plus it's beating France so always good in my book

Its on TV so we can always start a thread :)) I am hoping for a top half finish this year from Wolves if we can get a few additions accross the line. Love Maguire BTW one of England stand outs.
