That bad England , the mighty team of world beaters , average wage 300k per week , struggled on to a draw wae us in qualifying.

At least theres the consolation of knowing you arent going to be put out the world cup by a team of part time icelandic dentists.

Anyway markyo what do you know about football?

You`ve never been to a decent game of football in your life. The last time yorkshire produced a half decent footballing team , the pope was still an altar boy and even  sevco managed to pump you home and away.😀

Yeah but who's actually at the World Cup?.....i suppose 20 years is a long time not to qualify for the biggest football event in the World,it can make one bitter i suppose!!🤣 As for Yorkshire football,how dare yo......ok i'll give you that one😉

oh and those dentists can be tricky little buggers at times...least we didn't loose to the girls! 😂

Russia has put on a great world cup so far, best group stage I can remember for a long time. We all have fond memories of Italy 90, but apart from England going far, the quality was awful. USA 94 was the best world cup I can remember.

BBC rated Alexander-Arnold man of the match.. did I miss something? Our previous matches have shown some superb set pieces which have led to goals. Tonight, they were all crap! And taken by the said man. I certainly wouldn't play him again.

Blame the fans, they are ones who voted him player of the match, https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44650878

1978 was the best one I could remember. Scotland getting to big for their boots and being quickly put in their place although they did beat Holland in the last game which didn't matter. Having a dodgy goal keeper didn't help them.

As for Alex-Arnold the guy was a disaster couldn't take corners or free kicks perhaps those who voted were having a laugh or were totally blind.

I don't think Colombia will be as easy to beat as everyone thinks.

I don't they will be easy at all. However Japans pace would have caused our dodgy back four plenty of problems.

Some are getting carried away we are okay going forward but defensively all over the place. Worryingly the back up doesn't seem very good as they could have easily conceded five in a match which was basically a dead rubber which neither team really wanted to win.

I think it's a choice aj: yet another chance to see the whole of the 1966 final, in colour - or a repeat of Scotland's 2-3 defeat by the Faeroe Islands!:rofl:

The last game against Holland did matter because had Scotland won by a margin of 3 goals they would have gone through at Holland’s expense. They went 3-1 up with the famous Archie Gemmill goal, but then conceded and ended up winning 3-2. Holland were probably the best team in the world at the time.

It’s remembered the most though for Ally McCleod’s extraordinary hubris before the tournament. There was a documentary on about it the other week. He made literally no preparations for the opposition, so it was a shock to the players that Peru had an excellent team including the likes of Cubillas.

Not at all. Same people in this thread are/were the doom mongers in the now defunct politics thread.

England will beat Colombia by 2 clear goals. Sweden in quarters will be the test, as historically Sweden/England games are tight affairs and we're evens stevens win/lose/draw.

I fancy Croatia, done little wrong, defended well and have put their chances away, think they will beat Denmark to book a place in the quarters.

If you want to put your money where your mouth is, England are better than evens to beat Colombia. Double your money...

No need for the doom monger comment though. I think we will probably win, but the assumption we will just walk over them is foolish.
