ENGLAND Supporters Thread - World Cup 2018, Russia Here We Come


#844

The lads will be going mental, luckily for them Modric was partly to blame


#845

I’d imagine an awful lot of Oirish halfwits are not enjoying this very much.


#846

Least they can blame the keeper and dont have to give England any credit


#847

The same eejits who will be wearing their West Ham and Chelsea jerseys tonight.


#848

I know very little about soccer as I’m a hurling man but England are clearly a good bit better than these Croats

The honesty of effort England play with is very very impressive. It’s very very hard not to like them.
They are essentially the typw of team that the Eire soccer fans fantasize about supporting


#849

Ye isee a few of the tactical gurus over on the soccer thread are blaming the keeper.


#850

They’re all over in the World Cup semi final thread. Pretend IRA/EPL fans/Eire soccer types. Going nuts. They’re blaming the ref. Apparently he’s on the take.


#851

:smile:


#852

Some England support in the Connemara Gaeltacht .


#853

We should be out of sight. Could rue some of those missed chances yet.


#854

Ye are like the Limerick hurlers with the wides


#855

And the poor old Croatian lads are tired because they played a footie match on Saturday as well,


#856

Former Glasgow Celtic manager Liam Brady reckons the referee has been very lenient on Croatia fouling and cynicism. The Pretend IRA will be seething with Chippy. They reckon that the ref is on the take for England.

Good performance from the boys so far. Yet another magnificent set piece for the goal - what a great reflection on Coach Southgate. In defence Stonesy and Youngsy have been excellent. We’re controlling midfield which is a surprise as I was under the impression from other posters here that Croatia had the best midfield in the world.

England look much more dangerous in attack though the captain hasn’t been at his usual brilliant best so far. But there’s surely more to come from that source. Raheem Sterling is a constant threat and dragging their defence all over the place.

Nice to hear the Russians in the crowd expressing their support for their old war ally.

Still a long way to go, but England would certainly have taken a one goal half-time lead beforehand.


#858

This is it lads…


#859

We haven’t looked as assured since the start of the 2nd half.


#860

We’re under siege. Looks to be only a matter of time before Croatia score.


#861

Well called mate


#862

It was coming
