    What a WC. Even the games which don't really have great football have mad finishes and drama.

    Did anyone else notice the Colombian players trying to scuff up the penalty spot when they crowded the referee after his call? Dirty ****s.

    Yeah, the ITV commentator alerted the nation to that particular scam. Colombia were disgusting and got exactly what they deserved. How Falcao didn't get a 2nd yellow was beyond me. England weren't great, but they showed some character to come through that experience.

But yeah, it's a concern, but it was from before the tournament, so it's not like it's come as a shock or anything.

    The fact that Alli has not been at the races hasn't helped.
    England's midfield was shocking.

    They weren't great on the ball, but Colombia didn't get anywhere near the back line for the whole game, except that time Walker gifted them the ball. They weren't even getting any set pieces until injury time. Their goal came from a proper hail mary 50-yard volley. OK, their ineffectiveness was mostly because they picked 3 pure fouling DMs who couldn't pass for ****, but then that also explains why England struggled with the ball.

    I'm finding the Irish/Scottish crowd unusually deluded this year. They've seamlessly switched from "England are underestimating a very solid Colombia side" to "England are **** because they didn't beat Colombia comfortably enough".

    I was reasonably impressed with the midfield apart from the final ten minutes of normal time and the first half of extra when they lost it. Oh well. Guess we watch different matches?

    Patience, lad. We must remember that Furball gets overly excited very easily and this often leads to him saying manifestly foolish things.

    Tim Vickery with some strong words about Pekerman. Actually said he should be "ashamed". Unusual for him to use such strong, critical and emotive language.

    Never in doubt.


    Ridiculous how Colombia played as they have the ability to have beaten us had they not tried to cheat all game. Not that I am complaining.

    I think a better team than Colombia will have no trouble suffocating England unless their midfielders (particularly Dele) grow a pair and actually look for the ball from their centre halves.
