    A few thoughts, as I can't bring myself to watch the penalties.

    1. Tonight our front six actually surpassed anything I've seen before in their inability to retain possession. Inability to control the ball, poor passing, dreadful decision making - you name it. Really, really poor. I wouldn't accept that at Selhurst park.

    2. Our back four may well be flawed, but they were genuinely heroic tonight.

    3. The next time anyone lazily refers to Rooney as being 'world class' I may just put a brick through my TV.

    4. Someone really needs to explain to Joe Hart that luzzing it down the pitch to the opposition simply doesn't cut it at this level.

    5. The England players really don't seem to like Walcott very much. What is the point in bringing him on if we aren't going to give him the ball?

    6. If we are going to play guys like Walcott, Ox, Young or Johnson in the future, we'd better go for a Portugal-style 4-3-3 formation, or we'll get over-run in midfield every time.

    tbh it's no bad thing. Watching this lot get taken apart by the Germans would have been beyond the pale. And obviously Italy deserved it by dint of simply being competent and actually being able to retain possession.

    Why the **** was Cole taking a penalty?

    Young should have been subbed off at half-time.

    Italy on the balance of play deserved it. Was going for England this tourney though so disappointed.

    If England want any chance to play decently in the WC they can't take Roy. This kind of performance will be the norm and there is no way they are going to get this lucky in multiple games.

    He usually takes them in shootouts. Scored against Bayern recently too.

    Nah. Italy played the better football but they were absolute garbage in the final third.
