    I agree with you after the first half. England were much the better team in the first half but couldn't convert enough chances to put the game away. Croatia got stronger later in the game and deserved to win.

    England is out, oh, well. All I thought of throughout this whole thing was . . .

    Yep. England came out looking great. The first half England just couldn't get that second goal, and in the second half Croatia couldn't get the second goal. Got it in OT and now move on to the Final. England fans should be proud. Great run by them.

    Some of us never started! The team clearly benefitted from an extreme slice of luck in the way the draw panned out. They aren't particularly good, but the manager had them playing about as well as he could and deserves a lot of credit. It was enough until they came up against a team with some quality.

    My wait to see England in a major final or the Jets in a Superbowl continues. I'm 50, surely one of them has to come through before I shuffle off...

    I turned 50 myself this year. I'm beginning to think it will never happen for the England football team, but the Jets... well, Sam Darnold might just be the first step towards realising that dream.

    My British friends. Is Galatasaray hated by many in UK or no?

    Nope. Maybe by Turkish fans of other clubs, or Greeks who live here. Don't think any English fans do, though.

    Rightfully so. Did you guys get angry at Kewel when he signed with Galatasaray?

    Before you shuffle off, haha, you guys crack me up. Some of your idioms are hilarious (ditto the Aussies, the only country in the world that I know of where the word cunt can actually be used as a compliment or a term of endearment). Shuffle off, yep I like it. It struck me so funny. Of course the first thing that came to my mind was that song from the 30s 'Shuffle Off to Buffalo'. Very suggestive for its time, but has nothing to do with kicking the pail.

    Ha, the Brits are killing it in here. At least you're all taking it in stride.

    Can't claim it's original I'm afraid. It's courtesy of one W Shakespeare.

    I should've said idioms as a country. That's what I actually meant. Bugger off has always been a personal favorite. What a tongue in cheek way to tell someone to go fukk themselves. Tell you something funny. Many moons ago I was watching 'The Bridge on the River Kwai' with my Daddy (I was very young, but it was playing on TV, must have been '69 or '70). When Sir Alec Guinness says, "What have I done?" and does a melodramatic pirouette and sets off the dynamite face first, my Daddy said, "Typical Brit. He even died politely. I'm surprised he didn't stick his pinky out." My Daddy served in WW II, and it was said with respect and humor. LMAO.

    Hate the bloke, as do almost all Leeds fans, most Liverpool fans and a lot of Aussies. Self important twat.

    I think I quickly learnt that on my first trip to the US. I think I dropped it a few times at the TGG tailgate and it went down a treat.

    All good! Oft forgotten now we're consistently shit. Here's hoping with Bielsa we're entertaining shit,

    Belgium was a really good team. Today's game was no surprise. Still a nice run by England.
