    If the future doesn't look promising enough, England players have been scoring highly in Twatball as well.

    No, it touched his foot.

    To pick up on this because it mentions the shots on goal thing. Kane’s double chance with two shots doesn’t count in the official stats because the linesman (wrongly) flagged offside. If it had gone in then VAR would have overturned the flag and the SOG stat increased by two.

    He doesn't look too happy about it either.

    They don't ask how, they ask how many.

    Todays Squires cartoon is magnificent. Roy Keane, Big Sam, that Southgate lookalike. Too many highlights. https://www.theguardian.com/football/ng-interactive/2018/jul/13/david-squires-on-the-stages-of-world-cup-woe-and-reasons-to-be-cheerful

    Kane is not the most talented, not the fastest, not the strongest. But he is an instinctive goalscorer and he just knows where to be and what to do. The winner against Tunisia was a perfect example, right place, right time and a placed header in the heat of the moment. Go watch it again and I guarantee you that most players would have put it straight into the keeper. I thought he might be a one-season flash in the pan but he's done it for three now. He's the real deal.
  8. The voice logs telling of the research against the Thargoids was quite good. Ended with you finding 10 steps, I think.

    England followers have never truly appreciated a Henderson/Carrick type player. His job is to collect the ball and distribute it cleanly. Not to create or spray it around, but to control and find the man in space, forwards, backwards or sideways. Burnleys season was anchored around Jack Cork doing exactly that. Swansea sold him for buttons and look where they are now.

    I'd wait and see what happens with Dele Alli. He's 22 and this will be a ton of experience for him, plus (presumably) for the next few years he's going to be a CL regular. He's flickered in this tournament, but that is youth for you. This team reminds me quite a bit of Germany in 2006. Suddenly a load of old, stodgy players disappear to be replaced by lots of youngsters under a manager who is letting them play attacking football who suddenly have a much better tournament than expected before known flaws come back to haunt them. This team, with 6 years of playing together, could be awesome.

    The Press tried to do it with Kane but to be fair to the guy, he was having none of it.

    It’s just punditry hot air. Besides, it’s not a bad point to make. Croatia now go into the final on a day less rest having played the equivalent of an entire match more than their opponent. What isn’t being said is that England have looked like a bloody good side for 60 minutes of each game and then tailed off. The plan throughout seemed to have been to try and build an early lead and hold on.
