    I wonder how Morata is 🤔

    Rodri’s unbelievably good. Dani Olmo is class, so direct and makes things happen. I prefer him for them than Pedri, which sounds like heresy but he’s so much more threatening and gives them a different dimension other than tiki taka. We haven’t played a team with a really gifted attack yet...

    Biden introduces Zelensky as Putin at Nato event

    This is it - I can’t believe they can’t find someone who’s strong, vaguely competent and in vaguely good health and can stand across from Trump and absolutely pick him apart. Man’s a joke. It’s not like Trump doesn’t give you enough material. He’s an unstable convicted felon of a moron who...

    Best drunken actor

    Richard E Grant (who doesn’t drink - apparently he had a couple of beers during filming though and still hated it) as Withnail for comedy. Stephen Graham in The Virtues for realism. That pub scene was chilling to watch.

    Biden introduces Zelensky as Putin at Nato event

    To be fair he’s always mixed up names, it’s one of his things - but this is objectively funny/nightmarish. He also just referred to Kamala Harris as ‘Vice President Trump’ in the press conference, and didn’t correct himself.

    The official England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 versus Netherlands 🇳🇱 thread - Wednesday at 8PM ⚽️🏆 sponsored by Upex Pies Burra

    Proper performance that, Foden, Saka and Mainoo have been fantastic. Netherlands look ragged tbh, looks like we’re playing with an extra man. They really need to do something tactical at half time.

    Player of Euro 2024 (so far)

    Agree with everyone who’s been named here. Gakpo’s probably been the best for me over Ruiz, Mendes, Yamal, Turkish LB, can add the Georgia keeper too. Funny, it’s hard to pick. Normally in a tournament there’s some young players who make their name and become superstars. This tournament has...

    The official England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 versus 🇨🇭Switzerland thread - Saturday at 5️⃣pm ⚽️🏆

    I reckon we’ll see the difference now between Slovakia and Switzerland. Slovakia didn’t have the experience and quality to close the game out - Switzerland do. Far better performance from England like. Still zero shots on target though is it?

    England team to face Switzerland?

    Have a look at the average position stats for the last few games mate - they’ve already been playing like that, I checked out Opta to see if the stats confirmed what my eyes were seeing.

    Middlesbrough away kit

    I’ve still got my original from ‘99, all time classic! We’ve really committed to the Argentine-inspired away kits in recent years hey. Boca and then this, love it :love:

    France 🇫🇷 vs Portugal 🇵🇹 - Euro 2024 QF Match Thread

    He really hates that mask, which is fair enough. I’m amazed he’s playing. He’s also a tiny bit selfish in that he refuses to play anywhere apart from cutting in from the left, it all kicked off at PSG when they tried to play him at 9 as a “pivot”. That’s fine, it’s where he’s most dangerous...

    France 🇫🇷 vs Portugal 🇵🇹 - Euro 2024 QF Match Thread

    I think their squad man-for-man is brilliant to be honest but similar problem to England, so short of genuine creativity in midfield and the system isn’t working. They haven’t scored in open play right? One penalty and two own goals. Probably the most talented squad in the tournament but they...

    And Fernando Santos dropped him at the World Cup, and got fired.

    France 🇫🇷 vs Portugal 🇵🇹 - Euro 2024 QF Match Thread

    Nightmare for a manager isn’t it because he wants to play every minute of every game, and will throw a nuclear grade hissy fit if dropped/subbed (he even played all of the dead rubber). You have to handle him with kid gloves otherwise all hell will break loose within the squad, and you know that...

    France 🇫🇷 vs Portugal 🇵🇹 - Euro 2024 QF Match Thread

    Mbappe off. Fair play to him, must be in an unbelievable amount of pain, can’t believe he’s playing through it tbh. I wince every time the ball goes near him in the air!

    France 🇫🇷 vs Portugal 🇵🇹 - Euro 2024 QF Match Thread

    It’s just like playing with 10 men. He can’t play off the shoulder because doesn’t have the pace anymore, won’t move off the ball, doesn’t contribute at all to any build up play and obviously doesn't move when they’re defending. It actually hurts his game as well, they can’t get players into...

    France 🇫🇷 vs Portugal 🇵🇹 - Euro 2024 QF Match Thread

    Can see Portugal sneaking this via football terrorism. I love watching Pepe play. Cartoonish villain, but my gosh is he a brilliant defender. Still got it at 41!

    Spain🇪🇸 versus Germany🇩🇪 official match Thread-Friday 12PM

    Superb goal, Füllkrug couldn’t have been much closer with his two chances, can’t believe that’s the last time we’ll ever see Toni Kroos play because he’s still fantastic, and Anthony Taylor wants investigating for that shower. 15 yellows and a red?!

    Terrible time to go on a yellow card frenzy as well because plenty of players will miss a semi final now, massive for them.
