    It's just so odd. I mean, if you really wanted to get Vermaelen in, it would have made more sense for him to play at fullback. That would still be a nonsense move, of course, but it would have been better than shoehorning Vertonghen in there.

    Enjoyed the Italy game. Belgium haven't moved on since the WC. Italy with no egos in the team were impressive. Candreva down the right had a great game.

    So as a United fan it was interesting to see Fellaini do nothing different than I'm used too. Occasional good work undone by how he can unbalance a team and force a way of playing.

    Turns out they were both injured so forget this, O'Neill in.

    Haven't they been playing as the full backs internationally for quite some time though?

    Yeah, Belgium have a real issue with fullbacks at the moment. The only reason Vermaelen is playing is because Kompany is out for the trounament and they have literally no fullbacks behind those two. Personally don't think Vermaelen at fullback is better than at centreback, especially against Italy who's only attacking plus players are their wingers.

    Hoolahan confirmed in his after match interview that his substitution was tactical.

    Plus, O'Neill's a ****.

    Really poor.

    And his replacement (Origi?) was even worse. Quite the worst performance that I've seen from a centre forward for many a year.

    Watching the Italy vs Sweden this afternoon. Just wanting to see if I made the right choice in who will win this whole thing,or if I have just chosen them based on something other than their footballing skills lol.

    As far as hair goes, the Italians know how to do it. A class apart from the other teams.

    I find that a difficult choice tbh, Pelle very handsome, but Giroud looks as if he would be a good laugh on a night out...sorry it doesn't really answer your question..
