Lot of good young England players never got a chance on the pitch in this tournament.
They stuck with the tired old legs for too long.
Spain went with more youth and lack of fear and deserved the win.
Plus...30 QUID!!!!!!
WOOT!!!!!

I'll prep the 1966 World Cup film...

Already watched this yesterday!! Lol

We can't complain this euro , we scammed our way to a final anyway.

Gave the ball away too often, and didn't go with runners at crucial times- saka let cucurella run unmarked for their winning goal - and when cucurella is the man providing the cross you deserve to fucking lose.

Bottom line was southgate was the only person in the country that thought Kane should have started. Toney would've won more headers and watkins would've made more runs.

Glad Spain won. They play the middle. England did finally come around in the second half, and a bit unlucky with that quality chance at the end. Overall though Spain had the tougher draw and was the better team.

Agreed.

"Spain had the tougher draw"
---------------------------

Good point.
While England stumbled past Slovakia, Switzerland and Holland (no disrespect) to the Final, Spain despatched Italy, Germany and France.
It would have been a crime against football if England had poxed their way to the title in some way.
They need to appoint a tactically adept manager* who isn't afraid to unleash the young talent available, much the way Spain did with theirs.



* And that isn't Southgate OR Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard etc.

Klopp?

It's hard not to believe that a coach of the calibre of Guardiola or Klopp would have won this tournament with this current England squad, utilising the right players in their correct positions.
But I doubt either of them would take on the England National team role.
I actually think Klopp is nailed on to manage Germany in the near future.

Top guys aren't sitting at home waiting for the phone call. Only those that have failed or were left wanting.

Southgoat's biggest problem was trying to be their mate and his loyalty bordered on stupidity. Sven did it with Beckham too. The National manager must "pick the man on form"
Take a leaf out of Ramsey book. Despite huge national outcry, he dropped Greaves after an injury and stuck with Hurst and Hunt.

Our local newspaper ran a report about the detritus left over from the neanderthals watching the match in my hometown and used my photos and my mention of two of our fave Charlton Heston films (all is revealed in the link).

Instead of watching football on TV, we watched Netflix's Jerry Seinfeld film Unfrosted (it was a rather odd film).

Keir Starmer, our new Prime Minister (or his team) posted on social media, that he was in Berlin for the match, so I commented 'Don't mention the war!' (cf. Fawlty Towers), as I'd also commented the same to previous PM Boris Johnson, when meeting the German chancellor, when in office.

I don't think so. While Klopp has certainly been brought up on several occasions for the position, Nagelsman has a contract until after the next World Cup, and considering his performance so far, there is no reason to let him go. Germany played well in the tournament and yes, while Spain won, it was a close game and could have gone either way. The German National Team will go with Nagelsman into the next tournament, I'm pretty sure...

He dont learn. Yet another pointless fucking post about nothing, in a desperate feeble attempt to join in a thread he should avoid. What a fucking muppet.

Uh-ho, Preacher's back, calling out our slovenly ways and guiding us towards HIS light.

"God is in, his only temple...earthly thoughts, be silent now..

Are you lost little one..."
