Suggest in future to win penalty shoot outs... Why not take aim at some local glory holes...

Interesting to see the vax promo of a guy who cannot get the order of a pen shootout right after 25 years! Has he looked at Israel stats on the waning efficacy of the vax to 10% after less than 6 months. Looking dodgy for the earliest fully vaxed country on the planet. I say keep your big nose out of what is good for our youth!

Latest Israeli research suggests a possible fall to 39% protection against infection but still a 90% protection against serious illness. Israeli scientists also earn that the study used a small test group and us therefore probe to greater error rates than previous tests.

Just checked my source on the Isreal Gov site and also the Isreal Times. Both confirm efficacy of 16% for those injected in January and around 10% for those jabbed earlier. Your figures are correct headline figures but we all know headline figures are not what is happening if you look deeper.

I have looked at the Israeli Times and can only find an article quoting 39%. Can you provide a link? The same article references a UK study showing 80%, so which is correct?Also, Israel only use the Pfizer vaccine while we use three vaccines to increase diversity.

With the greatest of respects to U.S. businessmen, UK soccer is miles ahead of MLS. My knowledge of USA Football is negligable, as appears theirs is of ours? To have a successful and constant competitive team, Knowledge of the local game is required, FFC does not have this, it has an owner who has placed a family member into the one spot which determines the immediate future of the club. For this club's sake, appoint a very experienced person to be COO/Director of Football now, or risk losing finances at the behest of 'ignorance'? Names that come to immediate mind for our club would include: David Platt - Paul Merson and as a surprise Stuart Pearce. Any of these would have the insight, experience and knowledge to promote a team and stay within the division? As a fan from 1963 standing at Hammersmith end, it saddens me to see money running the club, not sound knowledge of our game!

What a motley crew,all having personal problems, agree we need a director of football but lets get someone suitable

Looks set to be confirmed over the coming days. Personally I think its a good move, still in his prime with something to prove, abit like our young manager. COYW

Would be an interesting signing as it relates to TCs future. Also of interest is the Brazilian kid. Would be great to see Silva supported immediately by ownership. Two weeks left. Still holding on to Reed and our young backs. So far we look ok. Get some cash in for Anguissa and Seri to ease the debts. As always, excited for a new season
posted by Californian - Saturday 24th July 2021, 1:18 AM
 
Excellent signing in my opinion. Not sure how much TC can offer our squad with his knee anymore. Good to have a bit of flair and creativity from elsewhere. Despite kebano stepping up and owning free kicks a couple of years back, we have needed a good set piece take since Bullard/Murphy. Think it’s an exciting signing if confirmed and hope to see an upturn in form from some of the other players under silva. If no one else leaves, a centre forward, central mid and GK are still needed. Fingers crossed TK has it figured out this time.

Cali, Is it unrealistic to assume we might see zambo in the championship? One can only dream.
posted by O David (Guest) - Saturday 24th July 2021, 1:57 AM
 
I think it’s a bit unrealistic, O, but I’m so far away maybe you lot have a better read on the situation than I ever could. Zambo and Mitro are really our only good sellable assets. I suspect with our debts one or both would have to go to fund any other pick ups and better manage our debts. But looking forward to seeing what happens. Reed, Tosin, Robinson and Tete are still key for me. By the way don’t sleep on BDR. I think he’s gonna have a fantastic season for us.

Thanks BFC I've already had a bet on you going down plus will bet every week on you losing Kerching!!!!! It's teams like yours that make us punters easy money, the big boys will eat you little minnows up they'll probably put the reserves out against you after they've looked in the history books to find out who you are and on the map to see if Brentford is an actual place.

Just like a dimwit bee to admit that their first game in the Prem is the first exciting game they have ever had. Losing to us at Wembley was the most excited they have ever been to date. They are so stupid half of them think they are going to win the league.

BuzziB, you lot do live in a dream world, and BFC, does not even know where you playing your first match in the Premier League. The only thing that I might agree with you, is that you will probably end end with a couple of more points than we did last season, especially at home, but it won't matter a jot, as your lot will still finish bottom by some way. Enjoy your short stay.

First of all, are any others of you, having trouble posting on this site, or is it my own PC or tablet. Not only is it very slow, but like one of your other posters having his message posted three times, although that was probably not for the same reason. What I have noticed today is that finally these irritatingly adverts have disappeared, and it's utopia, not having to wade through those every time, so whoever is responsible for that, thank you.

I may have been dreaming, but I thought I heard on the radio that H Cain was leaving Tottenham and going to Man City. Thats ok then to hear he will be on 400k a week this is just getting silly. We are now got to a point where there are only 3 or 4 clubs that can afford these players, so the Prem will be 3 top clubs and the also rands. Football has been taken over by agents and greed. Very one of us is under pressure of one sort or another this is just wrong. No I am not jealous or envious , but all common sense is out the window. Can we ever expect to compete fairly????,
Replies
No the Premiership is not fair. There are a couple of clubs compete to win it. 5 or 6 competing to get into Champions League places. The rest scrambling to get 40 points to stay in the division to pick up the TV money.

The Premier League has been absolutely ruined by money, and is has now turned into a replica of the Scottish Championship, where only two teams can win it,and therefore becoming totally boring. I agree that at least the Premier League has five or six clubs that can fight out for the title, at least until now, as not only are Manchester City buying Harry Kane, it appears that the next one to join them will be Grealish, so we might just as well hand the title now. Although of course I would like to see us make a quick return to the Premier League, I am convinced that whether we gain promotion or not,this coming season, the Championship will be a far more enjoyable experience, and it will be a far more open competition.

Alan B agree with all you said (all three times) I think this season will be more entertaining, at least we should go into each match knowing there is a decent chance of winning. There was all that uproar when the ESL was being mooted, saying it was greed by the few clubs involved and that those not involved was fighting on behalf of the fans. And the fans bought that argument; but when do you see a big new TV deal signed and some of the money going back to the fans through season ticket prices reduced. You don’t, it goes straight into the pockets of the players.
posted by Jegs (Guest) - Friday 23rd July 2021, 10:59 AM
 
Actually, the Premiership has been ruined by Sky. They have taken over the fixtures and inform the clubs when they should play to suit their schedules. As for Harry Kane, Tottenham are rebuilding and they will learn to play without him. As for his showing in the Euros, he will definitely have to up his game, at the moment he is city's worse player. £400,000? I wouldn't pay him £400 until he proved himself. Don't lose track of the reason we got relegated. We just weren't good enough!

I’m not sure much has changed ,the money obviously ,but I’ve been a Fulham fan since 62/63 season …and the same few teams where up there at the top …the other 80 odd teams have never really been near them …occasionally a Leeds ,forest ,derby and recently Leicester broke through the ranks but it’s only ever been 5 or 6 teams in it …in the 60s when we took the field against untied or Liverpool we would be over the moon if we scrapped a draw !

If our squad stays the same I can’t see how we don’t get promoted, two of the best left backs in the division for eg keeper is quality mitrovic upfront plenty of centre backs and creative players in midfield and players who can get the ball back quickly. We are in a weird slot where our players are amazing in this division but crap in the premiership

I’m 62 years of age and supported Fulham since I was 12. To me Fulham and the Cottage was always a friendly welcoming stadium with nice people as fans. This is the first time I have posted on this site although I have visited for many months. Lately it has become toxic. 18 months ago I self identified as a woman. I knew for many years I was a woman in a man’s body and so I took the hardest decision of my life. Although my hair is now long I know I look like a man In woman’s clothing. I have been disowned by my wife and children and laughed at by my colleagues and passengers as a bus driver. I am not a transvestite I am a woman in a man’s body. I do not feel comfortable using women’s dressing rooms because I know it makes them feel uncomfortable. I have seen the contributors to this site turn racists and homophobic giving me fear that attending the Cottage next season could become an ordeal. You will never appreciate how hard it is; to listen to innuendo that I’m only doing it to gain access to women’s private places. I am a woman and at some stage will take the decision to have the op. Please, please consider what you are saying and the hurt you can cause through your contributions.

I for one would wish you well in coming to terms with your circumstances. You will, however, doubtless appreciate a possible skepticism that your post could be the work of one of our more devious contributors, who regularly cry foul and find homophobia and racism where non exists. I realise there is indeed these unfortunate predilections but would suggest no more than in society in general, I don’t think FFC is a hotbed of the flaws of which it is accused.

Well George, we lived in Hayes and my father supported Fulham so I went with him a couple times and that was it I was hooked. I think my first game saw John Mitchell make his debut. OBSERVER, I’m sorry if you feel that way, but certainly recently I’ve seen references to Gay Morrismen, players coming out holding hands; laughing at gay people. I just try and ignore remarks like those made by ‘Girth’

Tamzin, I welcome you to this board and think what you have written (and what you are doing in life) is braver than any of us will ever understand, especially the trolls on here who make jibes about race and sexual orientation at any chance they get. My big fear is that you have painted a target on your back on this board, and as you say, will not feel welcome at the cottage because of the type of fans who post on this forum (i truly hope I am wrong). I have been fighting homophobia on here for a couple of years now and have taken more abuse than anyone should, for perception that I was gay, when in fact, all I am is an ally - I can't imagine the sort of things you would have to go through. My first post was like yours, in reaction to a toxic message board. The whole reason was that this is a public board that all fulham fans should feel welcome using, and not feel discriminated against by reading posts alone. My fear was that there might be readers going down similar paths as you who do not feel like part of the fulham family. All the best and welcome to the board.

For the record I’d have no problem with her using the same bathroom as my daughters. The post you wrote about every boy wanting to be to be in the girls bathroom/changing room said more about how creepy you are and what you spend your day thinking about than anything else.

For those of you that say there is no homophobia on this site. Or that I’m the bully who sees homophobia where there is none. I think there is simply no question any more. On that note the same people who deny homophobia are the same ones who deny racism. Absolutely appalled by the insecure little trolls on this site who are hiding behind homophobic monikers.

I would actually argue that Girth’s comments could lead someone in a vulnerable position, such as Tamzin, to take their own life. Not only should the comments be deleted but they should probably be reported to the police by the site owners. Utterly shameless and disgraceful bullying that has made me sick to my core.

I tried watching the new 100 over format on TV last night, but I missed the start to I was not up to understanding the rules set out, and I found it so totally confusing that I didn't see it through. Are there any other cricket followers on here that understood the rules, and if they do, can you please explain it to me. The crowd when I did watch seemed to find it thoroughly enjoyable, but did they really know what they were watching ? !

Cheap graphics like an 80s episode of Top of the Pops. Another example of the BBC foisting women's sport on the public, not because of its sporting merit as they claim but because it's all they can afford. A it less spent on Linekers wages and BBC3 and they might be able to help support the county game instead of this type of box ticking gimmick.

Have we any further thoughts on the next seasons campaign of knee taking, will points be awarded for the length of time players can maintain the knee or awarded for the style and flair of the knee taking. If so we may win games without a ball being kicked, I hope we have employed a knee taking coach.

I’m an ex Royal Navy rating and was a paramedic for 20 years. When I signed up for both I knew what I could be taking on. During the pandemic there were a small number of NHS staff in intensive care units etc working 12 hour shifts in full PPE. I respect them enormously; but that was their job,that’s what they signed up for. A lot of NHS staff were not effected; A&E departments were quieter and so were ambulance services, anecdotally, some of my ex colleagues said that when a shout came in it was often so quiet they were fighting over it. Most put on weight from the free pizzas. NHS staff have been offered 3% wage rise and say they deserve more because of the pandemic. I don’t think they do. The Country can’t afford it, supermarket workers, bus and train drivers, bin men, the list is endless and we couldn’t have survived without them. They would love to be getting the same. When the service personnel were fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq there was no clamour for a pay rise, because it was their duty and they knew what they were signing on for. The same goes for NHS, police and fire services.
Replies
All public service workers had a system based on comparison with commercial pay to fix pay awards. When this government came in , and ever since, they decided to clear government debt caused by banks being bailed out by cutting staff and freezing wages rather than by increasing taxes. As a consequence public sector pay has fallen way behind the commercial equivalent. A Tory government is never going to like the public service as they believe private enterprise can do everything.

TTIN the NHS pay and conditions are the envy of many in the private sector. The final salary pension they receive and job security many would give their right arm for. This was brought home to me when I took early retirement on a full pension and went to work for one of the largest bus companies. I could not believe how inferior it was to what I was used to. From staff representation to the way staff was treated and the pay and conditions. They had a final salary pension but had to stop it. I think people should actually look at nurses pay and see how it compares to the private sector especially after the massive Agenda for Change rise they had under Blair.

I'm sure working class families will be happy to share their homes with these vulnerable young parents and their children. The armed forces too can benefit, all those strapping grateful young lads only too willing to offer their services to the country that's taken them in.

Perhaps if we're short of labour we should make the youth of the country apply for vacancies instead of paying them benefits or to stay in college doing questionable courses or pulling down statues. 40 hours working in a hot kitchen might make them too tired to prowl the streets on their e scooters looking for people to mug and stab.

Any of these " refugees" who illegally enter our country from the safe haven of France are clearly economic migrants, they have already reached a place of safety in France where there is no war and they are not being shelled or persecuted, they choose to come to England for purely economic reasons how rude and disrespectful of therm to enter a country under false pretences knowing they are putting a burden on an already over stretched economy here in the UK when they could more easily claim asylum in Germany France Belgium etc.

Our first League match against Middlesborough is only a few weeks away can we start talking about that now and forget all this political stuff which is getting Fulham supporters very angry. As I have been for every season I am very optimistic about the months ahead. With whatever squad we end up with we will be much to good for most of the teams in this division starting with Middlesborough. It is also nice to have a home game rather the team on the first day back to work having to go to some remote part of this beautiful isle where some shouty northerners will offend our sensibilities and drive us to defeat.

I quite agree. It seems that is all people want me to talk about; and if the truth be known I haven’t a clue what is going on. Let’s get back talking football and whether it’s right or wrong for players to take the knee (I did); I mean to say, that’s not politics. At least you don’t see players like Rashford or Mings getting involved in making political statements. Yes I’m sure once the season starts there will be no more politics in football.

Boris is one of those rare people who does not let anything bother him, so it is up to his advisors to tell him how to react which is why he was so reluctant to let cummings go as he obviously knew how to read Boris completely.

I suppose most young people would have supported Boris’s views regarding the over 80s.

The twit had maybe worked out the maths for Manchesters budget in his head-space in a matter of seconds. Any sensible person would have taken the 60 million and thank you, and worked out the maths somewhere down the line and gone back to Boris with a worked-out plan on paper and where the extra money if needed.

Well Teddy boy, that was a well considered response.

How mental health problems and suicides amongst the young have rocketed. How the kids education has suffered beyond belief. And finally how pleased you are that my generation will be picking up the tab for the rest of our natural. It is a wonderful experience to enter into an intelligent conversation with one such as yourself. If you ever decide to put the thoughts of Teddy into print, I will certainly be obtaining a copy.

I think most people appreciate what you went through, I was referring mainly to the Baby Boomers. But you must surely be in your 90s and you are saying that we should protect you at the expense of the young? Well if that’s your view then you are entitled to it. My own grandparents have different views. Throughout lockdown they carried on seeing and hugging their grandchildren. Their view was they got pleasure from that and they were not going to stop. They made it clear if they got a dose from them it was not the kid’s fault. I suppose there are two types of oldies, like yourself who feels you should be protected no matter what the cost to the young and those like my grandparents who were not going to hide away and wants to enjoy what life is left knowing that they had had a good innin

Chief I’m 71, I hardly think I could be called trendy. I just celebrate with the Gays, I admire the life the Travellers lead, and I think it’s courageous of the Premiership footballers who support an organisation whose aim is to take away all their wealth and privileges. In their position, I’ll be honest, I would want to protect my position; so yes they shybe applauded.

Unfortunately due to various ailments unless I am taken by car, I am no longer able to travel Craven Cottage like I used to, which I miss terribly, but I still keep up to date by watching the Official Fulham website. Until last season, there was always a yearly charge for using Fulham's TV website, where I could watch interviews and match highlights. I have not had a charge, for a long time now, so I have been viewing everything for free. Can I please ask, if any fans that watch the official website has been charged lately, or has anyone heard from the club, about reinstating this charge next season ?

Before the upcoming season a couple of books anyone who's into football should read. If only they'd played in the black and white. Greatest Footballer You Never Saw: The Robin Friday Story by Paolo Hewitt and Pau McGuigan &!Charlie Tully Celtic's Cheeky Chappie by Tom Campbell. Compare these two to Southgate's ball scuffing non descript personality vacuums.

Doesn’t it depend on who leaves? Can’t see the point on buying for the sake of buying. The players on Fulham’s books are pretty much decent players. They start with a clean sheet with the new manager, who knows what he can get out of them. And let’s be fair he has only been in post a week; not really had time to assess what he’s got. Moreover, in this decision you can start slowly and still have plenty of time to recover

Jegs you can also start slowly, the rot sets in and not recover. Is it too much to ask to have a set squad before the first match and come out the gates running? The Khans should know by now who doesn’t want to be there. The risk for holding out for the best offers is having these guys sour the dressing room the next 6-7 weeks. Another risk our massive debt is forcing us to take.

Sadly,there will not be any quality players who will move sideways or downwards to the Cottage at the moment,not in great numbers enough anyway for a rebuild. Marco is going to have to call on all his skills to get the best out of the current squad,in my view. If he can do that,and we start looking like promotion candidates,even then not much might change as our recent history record is dodgy. Thankyou board ! Your lack of foresight in sticking with such an inexperienced coach for so long,will cost us for sure. I have every confidence that Marco can move us in the right direction. Let's hope that our board is as patient with him as they were with Scotty.

Break-even rule – valid during seasons 2020/21 and 2021/22

• the assessment of financial year 2020 is postponed for one season, and will be assessed together with the financial year 2021;

• the 2020/2021 monitoring period is curtailed and only covers two reporting periods (financial years ending in 2018 and 2019);

• the 2021/2022 monitoring period is extended and covers four reporting periods (financial years ending in 2018-2019-2020 and 2021).

• the financial years 2020 and 2021 are assessed as one single period;

• the adverse impact of the pandemic is neutralised by averaging the combined deficit of 2020 and 2021 and by further allowing specific COVID-19 adjustments.

Can to some degree with both perspectives here. Would be nice to have a back up striker, something the squad has needed for a couple of years. This could have been sorted by now. And I would agree that it would be unacceptable to only have a final squad after the start of the season. Last season we effectively wrote off the first 5/6 games. If Khan is learning then thats one sign we need to be looking out for.

Now it's been accepted that politics has entered football would anyone object to further gestures being made before a football match kicks off that support other organisations or issues in main stream society, we could have half an hour before the kick off devoted to knee taking and other gestures yet to be decided upon for example cruelty to animals, child abuse, wife beating, bullying in the work place the list goes on, you never know it may be more entertaining than the game itself.

Good point Rm, being a good human being also extends to the above mentioned ie, bullying in the work place, wife beating etc, can we not embrace these issues as well and stand united against them before a game in some form of a gesture or are they deemed not important enough. Now we have started we may as well go on and highlight the many issues that blight our society, my point was would any one object to these other equally important issues being made a point of as the victims may well feel hard done by that they are not being championed by footballers who may have been victims themselves or have someone in their own families who have fallen victim to any of the abuses mentioned in my original post.

I think you might be on to something there. Certainly I think there should be some LGBTQ+ representatives invited onto the pitch prior to kick off. This might encourage some players to ‘come out’. Also apparently Travellers are a persecuted minority. They could have a caravan towed by a transit or such like carry out a circuit of the ground. But they must be encouraged to clear their rubbish up. Yes I think your ideas opens up all kinds of possibilities.

Well said Jegs I'm not sure about the towing of a travellers caravan around the pitch as they might decide not to leave then the actual game would not be able to be played, although the entertainment value would be priceless, but I like your point about the LGBTQ+ representatives being invited on to the pitch before KO that makes perfect sense to me.

See your point PPB about the travellers; but I think the courts are open on Saturday afternoons so it might be possible for the club to get a court order and a late kick off. I just want to see their plight recognised; because they are so misunderstood. I’m pleased you recognise the benefits of the LGBQT++ idea; perhaps a Gay Pride parade around the ground while the players are taking the knee. It would certainly give the match a carnival atmosphere.

Teddy, surely you can’t be right about Travellers camping when and where they like, then leaving their campsite like a rubbish tip and full of human excrement. I’ve heard stories that where they illicitly park crime increases, but surely that is just anecdotal. Taking over towns like Cromer and committing crimes such as assault and theft surely can’t be true, otherwise our wonderful police forces would step in, just like they did when Extinction Rebellion brought London to a halt. No Travellers are a protected minority, oops I should have said persecuted.

As far as I can tell, apart from online where identities can remain hidden, the majority of people support taking the knee. I heard many boos drowned out by supportive applause in the euros. By 'general public' im not sure you mean the majority of people but a loud minority. You certainly don't speak for me or the 99.9% of people I know that support the gesture and equality. Majority of people don't get wound up by a gesture that takes 5 seconds. So I'm afraid your statement of the 'general public' simply means 'a small portion of racists in this country that you identify with.' I would also consider the fact that the majority you refer to, would be white people. The vast majority of marginalised minorities would disagree with you too.

Don’t forget me. I’m quite old and I guess in some ways that are almost inevitable, I could be labelled racist. However, like so many people I’m quite benign and harmless. I don’t go around beating up people who are not of my ‘tribe’ advocating mass deportations nor even booing people taking the knee. I am however uncomfortable with these displays of solidarity from, I think, a relatively small group who find it necessary to impose their views on me and the majority of society. It seems to me they are the intolerant ones, like ODavid. We are all entitled to our views, ingrained as they can be after living 70/80years, but as long as I don’t incite hatred, in any form, I cannot see that I pose a threat to the wellbeing of others. If I were to be in a position to discriminate, ie. by refusing to employ some because of his ethnicity, I could be subject to public scrutiny otherwise it’s just my personal view or preference and I have the right, like everyone, to live my life as I choose.

So you agree your views are racist? Entitled to them or not, you agree they are racist? The problem is, it's not me saying there's no place for racism anymore, as much as everyone loves to believe that, it's the footballing world and community. There are a number of campaigns aimed at ridding football of racism. Football clubs do not need to accept your support if they deem you racist, regardless of whether you feel entitled to your views (which is why you post anonymously I'd guess). They are entitled to theirs too and thankfully they don't align with yours.

O David everyone is entitled to their opinion and yours isn’t the only one that is correct. As you say majority of white people which in the U.K. is 86%, so we have the right to say what goes on in this country. Just keep political gesturing out of sport,the England team were stopped having a poppy on the shirt a few years ago so the BLM slogans should not be allowed

Leeds United of the Premiership are prepared to let Hector Costa go in their pursuit of David James, the Welsh wing wizard of Manchester United who is avaliable after the signing of Jaden Sancho. Maybe Manager Sari would fancy him - he's Portugese and a good player to boot. Who do you think we should be looking at - they ought to have Premiership experience. What about getting Joachim Andersen back in, he played well in the FIFA European Championships 2020 - remember them?

In case you missed it, we were relegated last season. Gonna have to adjust your aim quite a bit lower. Rumor mill been pretty quiet. Mostly our players being looked at. With three weeks to go, looks the mission is to hold on to what we got and hope the new manager can improve them in ways SP couldn’t. Got to keep Reed with us, then our young defenders. If we can get 15 mill each for Anguissa and Mitro, I might just do that. Need to see the clubs debts lowered. Seri out for a bag of balls. Still hoping for some good business.

Under the FIFA financial rules all we will be able to afford is a few loan signings. We must sign a keeper though, we only have two which is totally unacceptable.

I have been reading the postings on the VOY website, and it was mentioned that we might be in for a player from Manchester City called Tommy Doyle. Whether there is any truth in that is a matter of conjecture, but if it was to be true, then surely he must have spoken to Tosin about us, and if he has put in a good word for us, then it's quite possible that Tosin has decided to stay.

I like Harrison Reed but if we are able to keep Anguissa in this league, we will be awesome! Reed possesses the swashbuckling qualities in the midfield, but Anguissa will be a nightmare for the opposition surging forward in this league. We will be good to go with the likes of Josh Onomah also, and beefed up with a few more acquisitions, Fulham with a more ambitious-minded Manager in Marco Silva can knit us together more than Parker could. I refuse to let rumors about the likes of Robinson going because i also think that Silva will step in and have a say and influence on who will go and who stays at Fulham. Marco Silva isn't stupid, he will know about Fulham and who ticks the boxes for Fulham last year. Silva may have had a year and some months out of football but he would have been watching the prem football. I get the feeling that Marco Silva could have gone someplace else, but he chose Fulham to see his way back into football. If we start well and we hit the ground running, my question mark on Marco Silva is, can he stay the course with Fulham? We need a manager who will stay the duration now and to build and establish Fulham into a permament prem outfit...

I have been watching some of the training videos that are on the official website, and so far, I have not seen sight nor sound of Boa Morte, and as he is supposed to have been employed as our first team coach, surely his face should have appeared somewhere, and his name unless I have missed it, hasn't been mentioned lately on the website. I know that there are others that we haven't seen in these updates, such as Harrison Reed and Bobby Reid, but they are genuinely missing because of in Bobby's case, International Fixtures, and I am led to believe that Harrison is still having slight injury problems, so their absence is not too worrying, plus Mitro being back which is good to see. Boa, where are you ?

Malden Mick is right, there are a lot of families split on the jab or not too. The same dilemma is in my workplace which makes for a very bleak winter. Before the virus, if i was in hear-shot of anybody coffing with the dreaded lurgy, i was sure to catch it. I accept that covid is another version of a bad flu virus and we will be in for a hard winter for sure. Jab or no jab, this virus will mutate into something else and infect anybody who's immune system is weak. It won't kill most people but that's not the point. The little old lady behind you can catch it from you or anyone unknowingly. This is really the age of the selfish and no care for others. The 2 world wars were a waste of time and good people died for all and others to come. Jabs and vaccines have been around for decades and people used to que around the block to get vaccinated for a few viruses and small-pox and stuff like that. I briefly listened into a radio show on radio 4 doing my thing at work. I did not catch everything correctly but you get the gist from the old biddies who qued for their shots. Army people deployed abroad are given shots for different war situations on wherever they are deployed. Can you imagine given a shot for anthrax? We don't know what is in those vaccines but you take the shot and move on. Cricket players, you name it. The trick is to dig into granma's old chicken soup recipe, or even that vit D or whatever or even prayer to the Lord above before anything. Sometimes the old ways are the best remedies all above conspiracists and daft theories circulating on the internet...

I was absolutely delighted to see Mitro training with the rest of the squad today, giving me, and I hope the rest of us fans, a feeling that he will forgive the club as to how he was treated by Scott Parker, last season,and stay with us to help us make a quick return to the Premier League. He could be the difference between success and failure next season.

Mitro certainly is up to Premier League standard, providing that he is given the balls which would have given him the chance to score, which under the Scott Parker system, was never going to happen. Chief can you honestly say that Cav was a better striker than Mitro, but he was played match after match. I don't for one minute think that other clubs have been trying to sign him, but with just getting married, and from what we understand, he has settled here, and at one stage he stated that he was very happy playing for Fulham, so let's hope that is true, as it is still not too late for another club to come in for him. Fingers crossed that won't happen.

You are hard on Parker, when Mitro played early last season he looked unfit and disinterested. He then got injured and by the time he was fit again Parker had come up with a way to play without a striker. The trouble was with Cairney unfit we were lacking any midfielder or striker who could score goals. Parker's system worked for a while but the were found out and stifled by the opposition. Parker perhaps should have tried building the team around Mitro again but he had probably lost faith in him as being our saviour. A new manager will review his attributes and having Mitro and Cairney fit at the beginning of this season is very encouraging.

But Ted, you didn't think all lives matter when you made death threats... Or when Mortlake wished me dead. Would have thought you would have been offended by that is All Lives are so important to you? But no, you took his side... And even if I was gay, does that give you the right to be homophobic?

Players taking the knee gives the racists the opportunity to hide amongst people genuinely opposed to the gesture because of it’s links to the Black Lives Matter political organisation. It also gives the opportunity to Captain Hindsight and his cohorts to try to gain popularity by publicly doing it. Moreover, some individual players and teams refrain from it. Why can’t the teams come out a minute or so early and stand in the centre circle mixed and linking arms around a banner condemning racism in all its forms. Only racists would find objection to this gesture and it would give the opportunity for all fans to show their support by applauding. Something similar worked for the England Test side

Taking the knee is in support of racism having no place to hide, and is already condemning all types of racism. Considering the racist can’t handle a few seconds of taking the knee, I don’t think spending a minute doing a new gesture will improve anything.
posted by Guy (Guest) - Wednesday 14th July 2021, 12:40 PM
 
The point I’m making Guy, is whether you like it or not, it is not just racist that are booing. Some fans have extremely held views that taking the knee supports a radical political movement. Another gesture would allow those fans to express their anti racist support. Taking the knee has divided anti racism amongst fans instead of uniting it
posted by Jegs (Guest) - Wednesday 14th July 2021, 12:47 PM
 
I understand where you are coming from but I think we already basically have what your suggesting, just quicker and a different jester. I think the same fans that choose to ignore that taking a knee is in support for racism having no place to hide and claim it’s some sort of political movement, will also claim what you suggest is part of a political movement and ignore what’s on the banner.
posted by Guy (Guest) - Wednesday 14th July 2021, 1:28 PM
 
Wondering again, has taking the knee(what a yuck making term, they surely could have come up with something better) lead to more overt racism? Or is the act racist in itself, ie. in inciting others to feel the need to react strongly. If no, then do we think a National Front supporter walking, peacefully, down the road is inciting racial hatred. Move over Mr Jung. It’s all very interesting and I suspect just a question of interpretation, or maybe intent, but how do you measure that? I need to lay down.

Black lives matter is a movement just like Me To is an attempt to get an unrepresented and disregarded area of society what is their rights as a human being. Taking the knew is supporting that aim.

This is not a football post so apologies to the purists. I see Johanna Konta is out of the Olympics because of Covid. This means Heather Watson is out of the doubles because we cannot name a replacement as no other player is ranked high enough. I thought the Olympics were founded on the ideal of taking part so why the qualifying requirement?
Replies
You would of thought that the ranking system would be relaxed during the pandemic. Although some players do not have a high enough ranking it would allow an underdog to participate in the games, which would give them the experience and will be helpful in their future career.

World Obesity Federation commends the World Health Organization (WHO) and most governments around the world for their leadership and rapid and comprehensive action to control this pandemic. The past few months have given us an opportunity to reflect on the wider impacts of COVID-19 on obesity and non-communicable diseases (NCDs), both in the short- and long-term.

The WHO has highlighted NCDs as a risk factor for becoming seriously ill with COVID-19 [1]. Today, the emerging evidence based on experience from other viral infections and new studies suggest that overweight and obesity seem to be risk factors for worse outcomes in those who are infected by COVID-19. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses overwhelmingly show that obesity is associated both with a higher risk for intensive care unit (ICU) admission and poorer outcomes for COVID-19 [2-4]. In the UK, a report flags that out of 10,465 patients critically ill with confirmed COVID-19, 73.7% were living with overweight or obesity [5]. Meanwhile, a report from Italy suggests 99% of deaths have been in patients with pre-existing conditions, including those which are commonly seen in people with obesity such as hypertension, cancer, diabetes and heart diseases. [6] Overweight and obesity also seem to be risk factors for worse outcomes in younger populations (<60 years old), with patients with a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 34 being twice as likely to be admitted to ICU compared to individuals with a BMI under 30 [7].

The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures that have had to be taken to help curb COVID-19 are likely to have a number of impacts for people living with obesity, as well as on the health of the general population. The pandemic has shed light on existing challenges including a lack of health coverage and access to adequate care, infrastructure challenges both within and outside the health system, and the perpetuation of weight stigma [8].

While the rest of the world declared a pandemic in January 2020 the WHO were still saying that there was not a problem. Work out why. Here is a tip to stop looking stupid, don’t assume.

I have little issue as to whether Southgate, or whoever else, is knighted or not. On a personal level, I really like Southgate, as he represents the very best, I have always thought the English to be; a million miles away from some of our arrogant, entitled liars and charlatans currently leading our nation. Where I do have an issue, is the ‘politicisation’ of patronage, when politicians use awards to self serve and gain political capital. Johnson doesn't give a toss about anything that doesn’t bring him something, and that I hate. More of an issue, I happen to be old enough to remember the fact that Bobby Moore and so many of that wonderful band of heroes, were shunned and denied anything in terms of titles and riches, despite all they did for us

Normally' i never want to get involved in politics or any political controversy but on this occasion, i would like to say something. 'All' lives matter, white, black, or whoever. I am not deeply religious but i like and agree in what the bible says. Love thy neighbor covers more than your local next door. Jesus was named king of the jews, but just take a look at what happens to the jews in the bible. They get punished over and over again for disobedience to Gods laws and commands, even they don't get any favours or leniency for too long. This country was built on Christianity at one time and we have chucked it away a long time ago. You name me a proper Christian church that will agree with black lives matter only? Not even Martin Luther King would agree with 'only Black lives matter'? No pentecostal or evangelist church would agree with this gesture. 'Yes' an end to racism and treating black people badly, everybody agrees that is unacceptable, but no proper christian church would agree with a taking the knee gesture. The few fans who are continuing with the racist remarks are not lead by Boris Johnson, Patel, or Trump. England lose and they find a scapegoat and this has never changed in years. Slaverey has been around even in bible times and there are good and bad reasons for slavery which i choose not to elaborate about. There was also slavery in the white poor houses of England and that was an unfortunate and sad time for those poor people involved. Going back to the knee gesture? There are more than a few black people who would chose not to take the knee because every life matters. This great country is growing uglier by the minute and everybody is a racist who do not chose to take the knee. The labour party is basically finished and gone now because grassroots labour supporters don't want to get on board with pot-smoking activist and rich people haters who don't represent the real people of Great Britain. There will always be rich and poor people, that is how it is. King Soloman from the bible was rich, but he wasn't told by God to give up his riches to everyone. If you have one car and your neighbour has two cars? Accept it and move on. We live in a capitalist society and each and everyone can invest in bonds or shares or whatever, even if you have a pound and a penny. The tories will always find an edge to make a few bucks more for themselves, i don't condone it, but that is typical tories, and labour will always lose money. We are all lucky and fortunate in this country, just take a look at Cuba and those poor Cubans stuck with communism. I bet they wish they had Boris 'the bum' to run their country right now...

I've been under the impression that in the UK most black people are killed by other black people. Perhaps that is only the perception and mostly white people are committing these horrid acts. Maybe the media should be forced to announce the ethnic origin of the perpetrators of these crimes when they report them so we get a better picture of who's doing it.

Paddy, you can look up the FBI stats for this country for the last ten years. 91% of blacks are killed by blacks. 84% of whites by whites. Similar numbers for Hispanics. So close to 9 out of 10 are murdered by their like race. So statistically irrelevant. Can’t speak for the British but gives you an idea what the numbers may be
posted by Californian - Tuesday 13th July 2021, 11:36 PM
 
Its intent, as in why are you saying this? So if I constantly explain to someone that taking the knee in England is for “racism having no place to hide” campaign and they either boo that or choose to ignore that fact and say all lives matter in response, I’d say they are racist because it makes no sense as response other than it’s trying to undermine the campaign. If a group of English black players receive a huge amount of racist abuse and the response is all lives matter what’s the intent behind that? when only they were abused. As for no one ever saying there is anything wrong with saying coyw and ted constantly complaining that he isn’t allowed to say that even though he is making it up, what is his intent behind doing that. I’d also point out Ted has said stuff over the years which is objectively racist and clearly he is a racist.
posted by Guy (Guest) - Tuesday 13th July 2021, 11:42 PM
 
You’ve written killed but isn’t that the stat for convicted killings. What about the percentage of people killed by police been black compared to the total population percent? Also how many black people were legally killed by white people? Pre chauvin nearly every case of police brutality went the way of the police officer. As for the judicial system in America it’s a joke how many innocent people are locked up. People plead guilty to crimes they didn’t do all the time because they’ll get a shorter sentence and they don’t trust a jury to see past their prejudice or can’t afford a good defence. This is proven by 18 percent of cases where the conviction is overturned due to new dna evidence proving innocence, the accused had originally declared themselves guilty.

Respect,Guy. I think we all understand intent, but sometimes get it wrong as I have with Swordy. As far as Ted or anyone else, I can’t judge anyone, just myself. But I think we need to ease away from looking through a racial lens for everything. Instead of the two experienced made theirs and the three inexperienced missed, the idiots come out of the woodwork and classify by race. As long as we always look through a racial lens, this is what will happen.
posted by Californian - Wednesday 14th July 2021, 12:02 AM
 
Guy there is a column for unknown and/or unsolved in the FBI stats. They also go by eyewitness accounts, so even if they don’t catch the perp, they have an idea of the race. Regardless my point was most people killed are killed by someone of their own race regardless of race.

Also I don’t know your access to English media at the moment but right now it’s the front page and back page on everything and is condemned by every newspaper and politicians etc so it’s not like it isn’t topical or football related. I understand what you say about not putting things under that race lens but as soon as they missed the penalties it was put under the race lens by the huge racist backlash against them. This didn’t happen in vacuum, the booing of taking the knee against racism having no place to hide at the start of the tournament was against the same players.

I’m sure Owen does not feel he is a racist and probably isn’t in his mind but times and views have changed. I have a lot of friends and relatives who have racist views but don’t believe they are racist. I call them out and hopefully they will learn. Perhaps one should just accept you have racist views as a few of my friends do.You always know when someone says im not racists but....that they are about to make a racist comment. As to all lives matter comment ...would you go to a cancer fundraiser and say to the people that there are other diseases too. This is offensive to the people involved. If you are unsure or want to understand more have a look at Michael Holdings interview on the BLM. He explains it well. Here in Australia I grew up with racist views that I reflect on now which is why I say you can change by being educated. Gee here we had the white Australia policy back in 50/60. At school it was the Italians and Greeks...wogs who were all in the mafia, then it was the Chinese yellow peril,then Vietnamese triads and now Lebanese terrorists...so we were all very racist but times change and people learn to accept others. Unfortunately for people of colour this racist attitude has been so ingrained for so long it needed something like BLM and taking a knee to get people to try to change an outdated view. For some this won’t happen. That is their choice but please accept your views are racist and move on. I understand why people say all lives matter but it is offensive. Sorry for long post...just wanted to vent and match Owens length...lol.

O David' i ranted a little bit and my post is all over the place in parts, but i still feel some of my points is strong. The Pentecostal and Evangelist church and most strong Christian churches will not and cannot take the knee to one race and they will not do that for obvious reasons. Some may think that the bible is fables and out of touch, but our whole structure is built around those Christian rules and ethics. They obviously don't condone any violence towards black or any people whatsoever. Slavery is a bad deal for those unfortunate slaves who were captured and moved about around the globe to work for a pittance and to be treated so cruelly, but it happened and it is recorded in the bible and throughout history. Just like the viking history which was also cruel and brutal and the roman invasion etc. These unfortunate passages in history happened for one reason or another with recordings of rape and pillage and some very sordid happenings. A learned historian will tell you that these things were unfortunate but saying that, there were life benefits from our past history. For instance, the Romans gave us ideas for roads, a calendar, Architecture, Currency, bureaucracy, rotas, food orders, stock checks etc. The vikings we know about and it is easy to see or to learn what they brought to our shores, but we must not forget the nasty stuff in between. The same goes for slavery to England, America, Arabia, etc which is still bad but we live and learn from the past all peoples. The bible is seen as outdated but there are reasons why a race or a generation is made to suffer in one shape or form. Some say the bible is a form of control but it is relevant and it makes sense on a grand scale. We are all beneficeries right now all in the western world, some might not see it that way. Yes' there are some bad stuff and bad cops, especially in America but not all cops are bad. My lad is a policeman and he is a Christian. He chose to go into the forces with an attitude to change the perception of the police. I get my learned thoughts from him and i changed some things about myself and try to be a better person and stuff like that. They say the goverment has lost its moral compass because of the knee gesture and wearing of mask? I got the impression that i have a choice to wear or not to wear a mask, but obviously i can be considarate to people in crowded areas? For instance if i must travel on a tube train and there is an old person or anybody in earshot, i will wear a mask. There is no confusion in that, they obviously are leaving us to make sensible decisions in our daily lives and try to keep the wheels turning. We are in for a rough winter i think and like it or not, another lockdown might be in sight. Such is life but we cannot blame Boris for this because this virus is something else and clever. Another place and country will record low infections for a while and we will say they got it right, and the virus will flip around and hit a low infection place and country, we just cannot read this virus. I haven't got all my facts right, and some things are controversial but that's it in a nutshell...

We have not won a penalty competition after extra time this century in the Euros. With this stat and Southgates own miss, the opportunity to push for a win in extra time by including Sancho, Calvert Lewin, or Foden if fit was missed. Substituting the excellent Rice for Henderson, who I feel has no place in this England line up was a chance missed. The Italians realised Sterling was the issue and surrounded him, we could have played Grealish in front of Phillips and Rice to run the ball at Italy. Don't mind losing to a better team, if they are the better team, but do believe we had the players to win the game. Would like to see Sancho, Foden, Sterling, Grealish and Saka on the pitch at the same time.

You’re right maybe one day we will get a manager who cottons on to that and goes all out for it in extra time. Was there a lot wrong with’The Golden Goal’?

Reading this morning’s papers I get the impression we actually won on Sunday; Southgate being put forward for a knighthood (why not canonise him) and the Government looking at how to recognise the team’s achievement. Well that’s it we are now officially a country that recognises and honours failure. Makes you proud to be English. We are now as bad as the Jocks whose only football ambition is to beat England. As each day passes I’m pleased I’m in the deep winter of my time on this planet; I’m deeply proud of this Country’s history but take no pride in it’s present.

I agree with A C, we didn't lose the match, but under the competition rules, we lost a penalty shootout, something that weighs heavily on on England's football history. Had Rashford scored his penalty, we would no doubt be celebrating our great win. The line between success and failure was just one kick away.

Can't condone the racial abuse suffered by the penalty takers. I hate that in any form. We have to be realistic here. Southgate has achieved nothing really, except improving the national team. He hardly deserves any formal recognition because all football managers are aiming to do the same thing, and he didn't win anything. Whichever way you look at it, we had three full-time professional footballers unable to beat the goalie, one on one, from twelve yards. He must have selected them before the game, so who are we blaming here? I'm as disappointed as anyone else, but we expect too much because we 'hype up' the team so much in this country. Come on Fulham!

Not at all Broadsword, In 1970 we had some brilliant performances and were genuinely unfortunate when we were knocked out by Germany. We just accepted it.The 90 and 96 semi finals were compelling matches and in 96 the win over Holland was superb. I have enjoyed a lot of England’s performances since 1966. It’s just that I don’t go overboard when we lose. Would you have celebrated if Fulham had lost in the Play Off finals, and say well we did well to get there. As I said if you are not a winner you are a loser and I didn’t see the England players celebrating getting their losers’ medals. If people want to laud losers then that is their choice; but it’s completely alien to me. I think if I was a player I’d be embarrassed losing and getting all these plaudits. But it’s a different world to the one I was raised in.

I honestly thought we could win this in the first 15, but alas as is the England way, one goal is enough, lets spend the rest of the game defending it. Second half was one of the most dire halves of footy I think Ive seen! We were in a final for goodness sake, with a real chance of winning it! If that deserves gongs, then gongs aint worth anything! Go and win the world cup, and id be very happy to see reward.

As more scenes appear on media of England louts fighting each other and trashing central London on Sunday just shows what a moronic society we live in. And, now some of the England players turn on the Government blaming them for inciting rascism, where will it all end. Not sure why all players are told not to use social media? You can understand why so many football supporters don’t want to support an England team that is followed by so many morons, yes a minority but a too large minority. Another shameful end to a tournament.

posted by Jegs (Guest) - Monday 12th July 2021, 4:43 PM
 
I was not talking about fat people only morbidly obese people which is over 3% of the UK population.

What is Morbid Obesity?

Morbid obesity is a serious health condition that can interfere with basic physical functions such as breathing or walking. Those who are morbidly obese are at greater risk for illnesses including diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gallstones, osteoarthritis, heart disease, and cancer.

Morbid obesity is diagnosed by determining Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI is defined by the ratio of an individual’s height to his or her weight. Normal BMI ranges from 20-25. An individual is considered morbidly obese if he or she is 100 pounds over his/her ideal body weight, has a BMI of 40 or more, or 35 or more and experiencing obesity-related health conditions, such as high blood pressure or diabetes.

Common Obesity Related Conditions
Obesity-related health conditions reduce life expectancy. Here are some of the more common conditions. If you would like more information, please speak with your physician.

Type 2 diabetes. People who are obese become resistant to insulin, which regulates blood sugar levels. They end up with high blood sugar, which causes Type 2 diabetes.

High blood pressure/heart disease. The heart doesn't work right when the body is carrying around excess weight. So, the obese person usually gets hypertension (high blood pressure), which leads to strokes and damages the heart and kidneys.

Osteoarthritis of weight-bearing joints. Additional weight placed on joints—especially knees and hips—causes rapid wear and tear, along with pain and inflammation. Similarly, the strain on bones and muscles in the back leads to disk problems, pain, and decreased mobility. Learn more about osteoarthritis.

Sleep apnea/respiratory problems. Fat deposits in the tongue and neck can block air passages, especially in patients who sleep on their backs. This causes them to lose sleep and results in daytime drowsiness and headaches. Learn more about sleep apnea.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (hiatal hernia and heartburn). Excess weight weakens and overloads the valve at the top of the stomach, which then allows stomach acid to escape into the esophagus. This is called gastroesophageal reflux, and "heartburn" and acid indigestion are common symptoms. Approximately 10-15% of patients with even mild heartburn develop Barrett's esophagus, which is a pre-malignant change in the lining membrane and a cause of esophageal cancer.

Depression. People who are obese must deal with constant, depressing emotional challenges: failed diets, disapproval from family and friends, remarks from strangers. Plus, they often experience discrimination and cannot fit comfortably in public places. Learn more about depression.

Infertility. Obesity wreaks havoc with male and female hormones, disrupting normal cycles and function, and leading to difficulty or inability to conceive.

Urinary stress incontinence. A large, heavy abdomen relaxes pelvic muscles, compounding the effects of childbirth. This weakens the valve on the urinary bladder, allowing leakage when coughing, sneezing, or laughing. Learn more about urinary stress incontinence.

The WHO has highlighted NCDs as a risk factor for becoming seriously ill with COVID-19 [1]. Today, the emerging evidence based on experience from other viral infections and new studies suggest that overweight and obesity seem to be risk factors for worse outcomes in those who are infected by COVID-19. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses overwhelmingly show that obesity is associated both with a higher risk for intensive care unit (ICU) admission and poorer outcomes for COVID-19 [2-4]. In the UK, a report flags that out of 10,465 patients critically ill with confirmed COVID-19, 73.7% were living with overweight or obesity [5].
posted by The Time Is Now - Monday 12th July 2021, 4:51 PM
 
Government figures show 8% of covid ICU admissions where obese, as opposed to about 2% of non-covid ICU admissions. Hardly a majority of people. Considering the number of cases a report that only sampled 10465 patients would seem to have been selective to get the result they wanted. Regardless of any stats you produce to support your position, the original post was incredibly insensitive, inhumane and tasteless, as you clearly know from the title of the post.

Secondly I am appalled that you have the audacity to call me that when you do not know me, and last but not least you should be removed from this site and wallow in your own disgusting cesspit.

Interesting to read that the penalty takers were picked out by a scientific method, seems they were checked how they ran up to spot, which foot used, how slow ,how fast, how they approached the spot,then fed into a laptop and bingo out came sancho and sakyia, rashford . maguire and kane.A mazing how wrong can yoU be, no sterling, grealish, shaw, no rice or mount kept on to take one but taken of to allow rashford and sancho to come on with one minute to go in extra time,aint that clever?. So ,were they thrown under the bus or just given a nudge? who knows at least we were not beaten on the field by any one in play,what was also thought provoking ,the deadly ammo we had on the bench ,were was it??Bellingham , calvin lewis ,sunk without trace, just kane who never touched the ball second half and spent most of game in his own half ,why???? tactics ??? no lewis on to give him a rest , so many questions but some did ok baddiel and skinner made a few bob. bob, as did flag companies, and pubs,

Still can’t understand why Jack Grealish doesn’t start the games, the guy makes things happen

JW nor can the majority of the England fans. If it’s true that Pep is willing to pay 10s of millions of pounds for him, well he must have something going for him. Although we will never know, I believe if we had been more adventurous with the talent Southgate had available we would have got at least as far and maybe further. I would have liked to have seen the couple of old men Italy had at the back come under pressure from someone like Sako. Certainly been more entertaining.

Grealish is vastly overrated !

Good to know that Pep has an expert on footballers capabilities to fall back on should the need arise !

Thing is grealish Runs with the ball keeps possession and as we know draws fouls ( most annoying to play against Takes pressure of defence which we know would not hold out

I can’t believe pundits this morning are putting us forward as potential winners next year. Never mind that they seem afraid to criticise Southgate and his tactics, have they seen where we are playing and the temperatures. The winners will come from South America for sure. Saying that I still wouldn’t fancy us if it was being played in Europe, we are ‘the nearly but not quite team’ and it appears from the media the Country accepts that and still lauds them as ‘heroes’. Yesterday was last chance saloon with regards to winning a tournament, and it was blown.

Not to get carried away like the Press, I would respectfully point out that we did not lose a match. Technically that makes us one of the best two teams in Europe. Stats of course do lie and forgetting South American teams, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany etc. could have something to say about our progress to World supremacy.

FIFA Rankings
Team Points
1 Belgium 1780.00

2 France 1755.00

3 Brazil 1743.00

4 England 1670.00

We have a very good chance of winning the World Cup as we are the fourth best ranked team in the World. This team will be a lot better by then and will not need penalties to win matches.

I listened to 606 after the match to wind down and the pundits were waddle and Sutton both were critical of Southgate and said we were the worse team over the game. Also the sancho rashford subs just to take pens (I remember France doing it with anelka and the same outcome). I agree with them but still think he did a good job overall and is showing good progress. I think we can win the World Cup like another 7or8 countries can too. As for the racists, it’s sad but not a surprise I see it on here all the time and anyone who points it out gets ganged up on accused of been woke or a snowflake or ALM.
