Okay, I'm sorry.. a bit cynical.. 

But what did our English friends drink tonight? happy I hope the sour aftertaste was nicely balanced with some bittersweet anticipation of better batches over the coming years. After all, maturation is important and will yield if carefully managed.

Ha...Bitter Bart, the irony happy The thing is I've been drinking bitter all night, this is not a shock, we have been shite for years, a bunch of multi millionaires who couldn't give a fuck,they will be off to meet the wags in Dubai as we speak. Well done Iceland,you wanted it from the start and I hope you win it. England has exit the Euro for the second time in a week happy

The English football team should take a few tips from the national rugby union team who have just won 3-0 in a test series against Australia in the Wallabies own back yard.
At least our rugby union and league teams are not full of pampered over paid quitters.
It is 50 years since we won anything, I don`t think anyone is surprised anymore.
I suppose we are coming out of Europe, maybe  they were all worried about the Brexit vote more that more than the football. wink
I heard Jeremy Corbyn is up for England manager next.

Ah, we weren't even there in the first place. But seeing as we lost our spot to Iceland in the qualification,.. they deserved it and I can live with it. I hate orange anyway. 


HodgSON really should've picked a better squad. Sterling, Lallana, Rooney.. these guys 've played lackluster all season. What makes a person think they'd excel now, with the added element of fatique? Oh well happy

+1 but I could go on all day and all night about what is wrong with English football.

Also, why was the Premiership's leading scorer taking corners?  Don't you want your best goal-scorer in the box, you know, where he can score goals?   That was utterly baffling to me, Hodgson's off his rocker.

Nah.  No doubt Sam is the absolute king of avoiding relegation, but how does that help when you're trying to win something?  happy

I would've said Harry Redknapp, he has a raging boner for the England job, but he's got such a knack for crappy timing.  He just took the Jordon job.
To get out of the 50-year rut, maybe they should shake things up and hire a foreigner for the position  :-O

The Icelandic spouters are back to where they belong: between the vulcano's... Never forgave them for kicking us out, buch of compact running reindeer...... Even Albania was qualified!!!

The brits were my favorite team, finally a team with technical abilities, not the stupid kick and rush anymore, alas not the smartest of players....

No wonder with Captain Shrek.......

and I'll never forgive Portugal for winning it all.  Apologies to the Portuguese, but Portugal winning it is the worst thing to happen to football since Chelsea won the Champions League, which in turn was the worst thing to happen to football since Greece won the Euros.  Portugal was trash the entire tournament, they only won one game (in the 90min) the entire tournament, and it wasn't the final!  Portugal vs Croatia was the most boring game I've seen in ages... mind-numbingly boring.  It's amazing that a team can be that yawn-inspiring with the supposed best-player-in-the-world on it.  Sorry, but Messi runs circles around Ronaldo, when it comes to entertainment value...   I'm just ranting because I'm so disgusted with the result.  From a neutral perspective, this tournament was just awful to watch.  when watching football I want to be entertained, not put to sleep.

Adding to mrGood's comment, I would like to go back to the days when a reknowned club like Chelsea or Ajax or even AC Milan could win the Cup again, it's allways the trojka Madrid-Munich-Barcelona, and a fourth chanceless competitor for the half finals. Especially when I realise that those Spanish clubs have hundreds of millions in debt.

And the times when whisky was affordable, good straight honest whisky, since Joy van Velzen all whisky became fucked up... Luckily I have a load of bottles stashed away.....

Google her together with 'whisky' and you'll know what I mean, the thread's somewhere on this base.... happy

Exactly, and the tournament got what it deserved... An awful winner. If the European teams won't improve, the next World Champion is coming from South America I think..

That's good news for England, now they'll never get relegated... er, wait.

but seriously, will Sunderland be going for Moyes now?  He's king of the mid-table after all.  It might be a nice change for the Black Cats to not be fighting relegation every bloody year.

Moyes and Sean Dyche are the two front runners for the job, I've also heard Klinsman, can you see Klinsman leaving his sunny California home to come to Sunderland? Lol! That's a good one ha ha ha....

Yeah it was bad one, definitely punched their goal-difference in the face.  They've been just hanging on for years now, but it's unfortunately starting to look like this might be the season... they ARE in striking distance though, so there's still hope.

Well Lincoln City Beat the 3rd best team in the premiership in the FA cup at their ground, Lincoln are a non league side.
They said it was Imp-ossible
Go the Imps I hope they get Boro in the next round.

Congratulations to the Imps, what made it sweeter was seeing Joey Barton's face at the end, horrible bastard that he is.
