Agree that Kane was anonymous. Unlike the youngsters around him, he seemed to be plodding, not closing down. He didn't win any headers or link up play. Mind you, Croatia's one and only tactic seemed to be to try to cripple him! On this showing, his only value is in taking pens. 

The rest of Southgate's much-criticised selection were good overall. Great to see Sterling dribbling successfully at speed and with confidence restored.

Cautious approach from Southgate that looked genius for the first fifteen minutes but then it just petered out. Loved Phillips performance but just couldn't string two passes together going forward for much of the game, however even though we couldn't keep up the high press in the heat, Modric was forced to go deeper and deeper.
Not the attacking performance I was hoping for but solid enough - and our first opening game win in the Euros.

Thought it was a nailed on 1-1 today so I’m pleased to get the win. Get the result against Scotland now and we’re cruising. Would like to think Phillips or Rice would drop out and we’d go more attacking but Phillips might be unstoppable after today.

Trust in Gareth anyway.

Holland/Ukraine was a cracking match especially THAT goal from Yarmalenko.

Had a laugh in the pub - my mates and I wound a Manure fan up by telling him Wigan had signed Depay Smile

Took the thick sod half an hour to get the joke and realise it was a wind up although TBF he'd had a few.

He wasn't great but the system/line up didn't help.
It 'll be a different story if Southgate plays an attacking LB instead of Trippier out of position and e.g. Grealish in favour of one of the two DMs - which in my book would be dropping Rice and keeping Phillips. Seemed as though the plan was to negate the Croatia midfield rather than play the expansive game that Kane thrives on.
And I don't think either Mount or Foden played anywhere near their potential so hopefully they'll improve as the tournament progresses.

Thanks all. Appreciate the input.

I'll give the meter a miss for now.

Presumably you'll be able to watch the rest of the Euros without getting cut off then?

Superb second goal for Schick/the Czechs against Scotland who've now been mugged twice in a game they were very much dominating. Still time for Scotland to come back though.

Czech goalie playing a blinder. Scotland have been very unlucky so far.

I was more pleased by Wales victory than England's tbh.

I was definitely rooting for the ovinophiles and it was a great watch. Missed so many chances, but at least they created them.

I've asked you to pack the slurs in.

Seems you just want to defy me deliberately.

So this is your final warning.

I can't be any clearer than that.

Is anyone really offended by the phrase sheep shaggers or similar?

I'm not bothered about anyone being offended.

I'm bothered because it is breaking the law - and on here, it is me that would have to answer for it because I didn't take steps to stop it.

I'm sure much worse goes on every day on other sites but that is no excuse for it to be happening on here.

We all know he's doing it on purpose and if he wants to continue to be a dick about it then he can find someplace else to post.

He'll have to get WW to set up a Nuts thread. Razz
My forebears on my grandad's side are from Wales, so I grew up with a lot of the banter, and they really don't mind the sheep thing, even using the 'humour' themselves.
That being said, a man from Bolton was fined £150 for using the term in question, after it was deemed to be a racially aggravating factor in a disorderly conduct case, so I suppose Sluffy has to be mindful of modern day mores.

Italy looking very strong so far and no one will want to play them in the knockout stages.

Spain and Germany have no decent strikers so they won't win it.

Making yourself a hostage to fortune Mr Pig. Beware Germans. Very Happy
