Re: Transfers. Signings Rumours and Wishes.

I hope he stays - what little I've seen of him has been very encouraging and his attitude is spot-on.

Re: 2018 WORLD CUP FINAL - FRANCE v CROATIA

Gus Hiddinck saying France didn't show the quality and, for me, they didn't - a couple of flashes of exceptional skill/luck.
Other than that Croatia provided the lasting memories of passionate effort.

I suppose you have to say they deserved it, but Croatia didn't deserve to lose.

Re: 2018 WORLD CUP FINAL - FRANCE v CROATIA

Mandzukic - the greatest credit to Croatia - never give up.

This is perhaps, so far, the best final since ours in 1966 for sheer edge-of-the-seat entertainment.

Re: 2018 WORLD CUP FINAL - FRANCE v CROATIA

I give up - that's football. Arguably 2 of France's goals shouldn't have been but I can't argue with the brilliance of their last two.
Mbappe comes of age.

Re: 2018 WORLD CUP FINAL - FRANCE v CROATIA

Of all the bad luck for Croatia.
Penalty 2-1

You get the feeling Lady Luck's pulled France out of the hat.

I've had little preference for any team other than England but I do so wish Croatia to win - I feel they deserve it more.

Croatia the better team so far, although France have been luckier in the games leading up to this so all to play for.

From the replay it looked to me like it came from a Croation head Ges.

Yes - well deserved. Perisic with a cracker - he took it to his left and slammed it in.

Re: 2018 WORLD CUP FINAL - FRANCE v CROATIA

It shouldn't even have been a free kick - the contact was after Griezmann went to ground. Just before that Perisic was punched by a French player- dirty bastards.

Shame because of the way the draw panned out Belgium didn't make it to the Final v France
Disagree Leon, Belgium themselves weren't good enough when it counted whilst Croatia were - they deserve the chance to put a new name on the list of World Cup winners.

Oh well, 3rd place is nowhere, but it would have been nice to beat Belgium.

Re: 2018 WORLD CUP - BELGIUM v ENGLAND on Saturday

In fairness England looking much better this late 2nd half but a cracking save from Pickford from a breakaway.
