    If a player tackled studs up and square into the knee its a red card, especially if they ont play the ball with the studs up straight leg. If its a keeper its a good save?
    Exactly what I said to my English mate this evening. And his exact response.

    My mate's in Greece and just text me saying similar. They just can't handle it when they get pumped oot. Feel for them .
    Don’t feel for those idiots, feel for the real England fans who travel to Kazakstan for a qualifier.

    Walloper, band wagon jumping, it’s coming homing, scrapping when emptied fuds can go do one.

    They give England a bad name.

    Great from Irvine Welsh on Twitter -

    Beat Tunisia, Panama and Sweden. Drew with Colombia. Lost to Belgium and Croatia. When the dust settles and people get past the emotion there were actually no real surprises from England.

    England bottled the best chance they'll ever get to win the world cup. Their pundits can dress it up however they like but with all the big teams going out and England being the highest ranked team left on their side of the draw they've missed a golden opportunity. Making the final should have been a formality especially against a Croatian side out on their feet.

    There's always something a little distasteful IMHO about those derive so much pleasure from the demise of others. Get a life Mr Welsh

    It is a good word - yes.

    Often witnessed when losers are trying to justify their own lack of achievement

    I know quite a few lads who have travelled over during the course of the tournament and quite a few for tonight with open tickets depending on the result. Genuinely feel for them. The beer chucking ambulance jumpers can GTF though. Still time for an equaliser, mind.
    So do I. In fact a few of my mates do every England game, one walked on his job to be in Moscow for both the semi and final. Gutted for them as they spend all their free time doing overtime so they can travel all over.

    But still... Get in Croatia

    I'm interested too.

    Which party is SIU?

    Or are you being enigmatic?
    no mystery at all, the SIU are not a party as such but are a unionist movement funded by some shady characters attempting to derail both the SNP and the independence movement. Their aim is to invade social media to spread misinformation and lies while attempting to garner anti-English responses from Scots.

    Check out Twitter for more examples.

    Massive bug bear of mine with fitba - keepers are always allowed to make challenges that would be a straight red by outfield players.

    Kinda agree with this - it's almost as if the 'unlucky, brave lions' thing was written at the start of the torunament, all because the England camp were nice to journalists. But we in Scotland know how succulent fitba journo can be.

    I don't see how they have over achieved - the beat Tunisia, Panama and Sweden, lost to Belgium and croatia, and drew with Colombia- I wouldn't say that is above par for England.

    I think they have been good to watch, but it's probably more of a damning indictment on previous England teams that this is being seen as some sort of glorious effort.

    Ironically, Southgate seems to be the one making the point that they lost!

    I can't see another tournament opening up like this - the euros are far harder to win than the world cup, and this was a world cup minus Italy (perennial challengers) and also Holland (often challengers).

    The did better, but I don't they have excelled. They didn't beat a single team that they they shouldn't have.

    A young inexperienced team, who were "nothing special" (your words) , still managed to get to the Semis - in 2 years they will be even better than they are now.

    They will improve for sure, but in the cold light of day England have a long way to go. Their run did flatter them a bit, because the other semi final looked a cut above in terms of quality.

    ITN was almost beyond parody last night, a eulogy to ‘Southgate’s heroes’ set to piano music.

    You cry and console Hearts fans when they lose a game? Never worked out why ER always celebrates the loudest in the derbies, I’m sure there is a reason...

    People will derive much pleasure from another team losing because they’ve put cash on their opponent to win, people will derive so much pleasure if they support France and they win, to the detriment of Croatia. This kind of stuff always comes up when England lose, why are we to have some sort of sympathy all of a sudden? It’s football, are we all going to have hugs outside ER after derbies soon? Should I laugh or cry when Hearts get knocked out of the cups?

    People can make “distasteful” comments (as you put it), people can celebrate in the stand giving it the giruy and still remain civilised in every day life.

    If England won, I’m sure English fans won’t have put distasteful comments up about Croatia, they are all above such things...Sorry but this support England or have sympathy for them is almost indicative of attempts to slowly indoctrinate people into a belief that we should be 100% behind them.

    Exactly, he's certainly not rubbing it in.
