Funny - England players 'gatecrash' manager Sarina Wiegman's news conference -


I wonder what they've got in those drinks bottles?

(Apologies to F4A members from other parts of the UK, but you're just going to have to put up with us for a while. I'm sure you would do the same in the circumstances).

My apologies, if my comment came across as critical. It was intended to be in agreement and having a little joke about what appears to be a missing word (I think you meant 'Please wake me up').

No Hard Feelings It wasn't meant as Rude just explaining what I had. I mean it sort of has and hasn't sunk in it is weird

Can anyone here recommend an excorcist to enter Old Trafford? Clearly there is a presence that needs encouragement to depart otherwise my club shall be relegated!

Not including the women's team of course!

Don't worry, JENNYJET! Man U (Men's team) often seem to get off to a bad start, but always seem to finish well into the upper half of the league.

Sadly, Contracts stipulate a base salary and cannot be ammended without agreement of both parties. The bonus elements are variable and underperforming teams suffer. As long as base salaries are protected by contract, the incentive to improve does not exist!

It was the result I expected in the end. England can't play dirty like the French, the Italians and the South American teams it's not the English way.

We had the game on whilst we were having our works do last night but with no sound on. Definitely one of the better games of this World Cup. I wasn't confident about Kane taking a 2nd penalty (I actually said he would miss to the table I was sat at) purely on the basis that we got away with the 1st one seeing the Kane and Lloris are teammates so would have practiced against each other many times.

I do not know what match the referee was looking at but he appeared not to be at the one that was taking place around him. You can always accept that sometimes that despite playing better, you will occasionally lost but what you cannot legislate for is ineffective officiating.

Quite why the 2nd penalty had to go to VAR was beyond a joke, and the referee then taking a load of replays to confirm one of the most obvious fouls just turned it into a farce. As for the other incidents/persistent fouling it baffles me how so much was allowed to go unpunished.

I also find it incredulous that there are some people who are saying on social media that "they couldn't remember England having a shot" despite having twice as many as France with half of them on target. It's also remarkable saying that the 1st time they meet a "quality" team they lose. Get out of the only group where all countries were in the Top 20 then meet the African champions. Yep, England was definitely playing San Marino, Andorra, American Samoa, etc.

Still the bulk of that England side is under 25 so they can store this experience in their locker knowing that they are not yet at their prime.
