    The Final & 3rd Place - FRA v. CRO / BEL v. ENG

    I do, but I think you need to pay less attention to the occasion, rather than the actual football.

    He's been good, but not even close to the best, so I'm not sure what orifice you're pulling that from.

    Okay, I saw Perisic scored so I'm back watching for now.

    Yeah, the initial angle made it look reasonable, but from the other angles it's ridiculous.

    I'm going to watch a film or something. I'm tired of football matches being decided by cheats and incompetent referees.

    What a load of horseshit. He slipped with both his feet flying backwards? Fuck off.

    A blatant dive from Griezmann there. And it results in a goal. What a twat.

    Yeah, Croatia have started really well.

    Player of the tournament so far

    I'm similar with Pogba, in that I hold him to a higher standard because of the hype. He has been good this tournament, but I think Modric has been on another level.

    Yeah, I wasn't disagreeing with you. I much prefer to see my teams play the game in the right spirit. Of course, that's not made any easier when FIFA decides that the best way to avoid big players missing big games through suspensions is for the refs to leave their cards at home. You could card as normal, but change it to three yellows before a ban, with a reset before the quarters, and it would work out much better, but nah, let's just make it an absolute shitfest of cynical fouls. Good work on the ~50% set-piece goal total, FIFA. Best World Cup ever!

    The team-off-the-field thing is an urban myth - a team can't kick off until the referee allows it, so the whole thing is all a bit embarrassing. The players really should make more of an effort to learn the rules of the game they're playing.

    I don't know, I think fan behaviour is worse than ever - We've had idiots jumping up and down on ambulances, and apparently whole groups throwing their beer in the air to celebrate/show the internet that they're celebrating with gusto, is a thing now. Imbeciles.

    Yes, the Ashley Young that did that and absolutely fuck all else. He was shite.

    Positives and negatives for England. I think the main thing Southgate has achieved at this tournament is getting the squad in the right frame of mind; making sure they're relaxed, together and happy. Not so keen on his tactics though. For long stretches, the prefered formation left us looking clueless going forward. Five at the back, but one of the wing-backs is scared of going forward (and it's the actual fucking winger, no less.) We spend far too much time passing it about among the back three and then having Pickford pump it forward, and this has been the case in pretty much every game. And then there's the blind loyalty to players, like Dele Alli, who's been broken since the 20 minute mark of the first match, or Ashley Young, who's been utterly ineffective throughout. There's his reluctance to make substitutions, where he makes even Klopp look decisive. And then there's Harry Kane, who lumbered about the midfield like a zombie for most of the second part of the match. Fuck knows what was up with him today, but knowing Southgate he was probably goosed but left on the pitch to play on anyway.

    Pogba putting in a shift off the ball for once, and dealing with Fellaini pretty handily.
