Russia or Croatia

First real test

I've fancied Croatia to do well from the start, they would be very tough Hector
But can you beat either of them ???

cheers, I would still find it very hard to name any of the England team, although I may just watch the semi :shock: :shock:

For the first time since 1990 I believe we are capable of beating anybody on our day.

Croatia are more talented but, as we have seen time and again, that almost hasn't mattered.
Russia have a whole country behind them and so far have been lucky, so it will be the usual lottery.

Just heard a chap on 5 live phone in....rugby fan who said that he was coming over to soccer simply because Southgate and his players epitomised what rugby does....

Reported for abuse...let's see how moderators are treated when they are reported ???

Or will they only be banned if they post in Gaelic ???

I was thinking I'd rather Croatia, not us, eliminate Russia, then Russian fans may start cheering us on against Croatia, but I think that thought was destined for the scrap heap.
Overall though I'm amazed we've achieved what we have. We just get more effective as we go on - I never thought Sweden would cave in like they did and I'm beginning to think we may even (with a following wind and a smidgeon of extra luck) beat Croatia and Belgium/France and actually win this thing.

Yes, the teams left are extremely skilful and smart, but so are we, and we seem to have some of that Napoleonic extra, luck. Come on lasses and lads - get wishin' and hopin' - as Dusty used to sing.
Whatever happens, this WC has been the best, imho, since 1990, and maybe even 1970.

How anyone is treated when a post is reported is not publicised on the open forum. It is discussed in the moderators forum and any appropriate action (if any is needed) will be implemented.

what I will ask Ronan is that you change your avatar to one that is not mine or anyone else's ... This is an official request as a moderator, so please take heed.

Thank you
