    I'd agree with you on that - he's stunningly good, no doubt about it, but for me 'world class' is about more than just that; you'd need to see him do a lot more for a longer period of time to start to put him in any sort of world elite/all-time great category. I suspect he'll end up there, but at the moment he's more in the highly gifted, up & coming category (which I just made up).

    Hey google/spotify.

    I'd really love to pretend I knew what the chuff all that meant, but without having to ask my kids to translate, a depth to which I'm not prepared to sink, I'm out.

    Englands Perfect Storm

    I'm fairly confident that at some point in my life I will have chanted "soft southern b***ard" to a West Brom player rolling around on the floor.

    I don't know, but they'd better be flogging ale & not milk when I get there.

    I've seen Huddersfield get to the later rounds of the FA Cup by beating dross for 3 or 4 rounds & then convinced myself that we could win it. We haven't done since 1922 though. I think that's why the armchair England fans (of which I include myself) started to get a bit giddy about it. In terms of public expectation (which is almost universally going out in the group stages /QF) we exceeded that. I'd say that 80%+ of people watching it on TV would have no clue whatsoever whether Colombia is the international equivalent of Bayern Munich or Walsall, so to that end, public expectation was exceeded. In terms of people who know a bit about football, most of us can see England did OK, had a bit of luck but are honest that we weren't good enough...but that didn't stop us all getting excited about it though & we might have pulled off a 'giant-killing' in the final, you never know. In the end, though, it was good for Joe Public, but will be forgotten about soon enough. And I've got Accrington away tomorrow, and an afternoon on the terraces beats sitting in the pub watching football any day of the week.

    Although I think the vast majority of England’s regular support are genuinely decent people, I can’t really envisage a time when they will be seen as ‘lovable’. There’s just a few too many numpties on the periphery that will come out of the woodwork every so often. I’m completely club over country but it’s that element & the rubbish that they bring that have stopped me ever really getting into wanting to watch England other than from my armchair.

    I'm disappointed about that, I thought if we'd nicked any of the first half chances/half-chances we'd have gone on to win, but Croatia was my 'dark horse' forecast from the off so at least I can bask in my pseudo-knowledge & pretend I foresaw it all. I suspect it will be a good many years before I see England anywhere near the final again but it was good while it lasted. I'm looking forward to Saturday's game now anyway far more than, in truth, I looked forward to that one. Accrington away is always a decent pre-season friendly with a few good pubs around the town, so all will be well again.
  8. I'll be honest, that does my nut in. There's folk wandering round in full England kits who to my knowledge haven't set foot in a football ground beyond half a dozen times in a decade, but are suddenly pub experts in everything football-related. I used to love to tell Man Utd kit wearers that I'd seen them play more often than they had & it's the same thing really.

    Croatia support thread

    I have an East Fife shirt from a couple of seasons ago that I used to wear every so often I just need to reduce my beer intake for a while now so I can get back into it.

    Rivalry is good. It’s just part & parcel of who we are as football fans. My mum to this day doesn’t understand how I could support a German team over a Yorkshire team in the 1975 European Cup Final.
  11. No need at all to apologise! I’ve travelled a lot around Scotland from Shetland to the Borders & all points in between & honestly can say not once have I ever had a single anti-English comment made to me. And I’m aware enough to know that it’s not always the same this side of the border! I’ve always loved the place & the people & always will. Oh, and the whisky.

    My lad is 23 & never even really been that bothered about international football (if anything he supports Ireland as my wife’s side of the family are all from there). I don’t think I’ve seen him as excited about a non-Huddersfield game in his life as yesterday. Over & again he just kept laughing & muttering about “World Cup semi-can you believe it” & so on! I know there’s no shortage of morons knocking around but I can’t deny I’m starting to get a bit giddy about it myself. Cue usual crashing disappointment fairly soon!

    "Can only bet who is put in front of you" I bet it will be Croatia next - how much do I win?
