      I was also, for 15 minutes but then I changed my mind. Unlike you I forgot to inform these breaking news here 😉

          Well, Shaw scored and is in form. MU has replacement for Lindelöf. Every man and his dog has Shaw and since he plays for MU his price will sky rocket fast if he hauls early. At 5.5 I prefer to have him on my team and have Brighton def for the first game. Many are also planning to get him in for gw2, so not having him may cost 1 ft or not getting price rise. He is simply too obvious risk not to have.

    Not sure yesterday's events such as disgusting behaviour of fans, disrespectful behaviour of players and organisational issues (safety breaches) wil help with England's World Cup 2030 bid.

      Yet money talks in football... But that behaviour migh cost lives in the future when other fans are allowed to be there also. No chance of zero violence at all.

        What sort of host is drunk, violent and booing his guests national anthem ?

        Not my fault English fans are stuck in medieval.

        Players taken off the medals didn't cover themselves in glory either...

        Just a shame that nation which claims to be home of football is incapable of acting accordingly to the occasion.

          None of us normal England fans, who are in the vast majority, condone that behaviour.

          Within most large groups, you’ll find a subsection who are moronic, violent and prejudiced.

          I think the issue I have is when we are all tarred wjth the same brush. Let me be clear, there is no one more ashamed of that minority’s behaviour than me this morning but that doesn’t mean all England fans are like that.

            If the majority of the fans don't condone such behaviour why we haven't heard any cheering during German, Dennmark & Italy's anthem ?

            1. Zen Arcade
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              2 months, 10 days ago

              I cannot comment on that, I wasn't at any of the games, but to use that as evidence that the majority of fans are drunken, disrespectful morons is unfair.

              No one I know is anything less than disgusted by the behavior of those who've been violent, racist etc.

              When Eriksen had been carried away from the pitch to hospital with Finnish flag covering him and people waited for the news the following happened: Finnish fans started to shout supportively Eriksen and Danish fans shouted back Christian. Difficult to imagine bigger contrast in behaviour.

                Completely different circumstances to last night though.

                I am pretty sure when Muamba went down a Spurs fan ran on to the pitch and saved his life. I am sure he didn't get booed off the pitch.

    Why chiellini dont get a red card? Its clear foul on Saka.

    At least Chiellini or Jorginho get a red.

    Italian always play dirty. Remind me of Materrazzi.

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Not sure either were clear red card offences, but if the referee had sent them off, I'm not sure VAR would have overturned.

    2. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I was never a red card. Out on the touch line, probably 50 yards from goal, defenders parallel.

    3. Dogs Of War
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Unfortunately you can’t send Chiellini off for that. Yes it was almost assault, but only a yellow. Jorginho on the other hand was more of a case. Could easily have gone for that.

    4. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      It wasn’t a red card offence.

    Rashford and Sancho were 'on ice' for the penalty kicks.

    Much like in NFL where the opposition take a time-out before a field goal attempt to 'ice' the kicker.

    Perhaps England need to bring a bit of astro-turf with them to put in the changing rooms so that penalty takers who are being subbed on can practice a few kicks just to get in the groove before penalties.

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years

      Haha bring out a goal for the sideline like the NFL kickers have when they’re warming up for a field goal

    We are an angry little nation with a drinking problem.

    To make matters worse we have a government that thrives on division. If these football fans got as angry about the corruption and lies we wouldn’t be in such a mess.

    Will Chiellini’s challenge on Saka, which was effectively a chokehold, be getting branded a “disgrace” in the same way Sterling’s so-called dive was?

    1. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      In the NFL, that is a 'horse-collar' and has been banned. If you 'horse-collar' an opponent, as well as your team getting penalised on the field, you get a personal monetary fine from the NFL.

    Why are all the headlines on Saka this morning. The fault lies with Rashford and his silly run up.

    Lost all confidence after that.

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Thin margins, his run up sent Donnaruma the wrong way so it worked just shame he hit the post.

    2. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Rashford took a decent penalty. He sent the GK the wrong way and only slightly missed.

      Belotti's penalty was the worst out of all of those taken. Maguire's was the best.

      Sancho's penalty the most disappointing.

      1. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I like Rashford but I’m not sure how a penalty that doesn’t hit the target can be described as decent.

    3. Dogs Of War
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Two ways to look at it. Yes it was really annoying to wait for him to actually take the penalty and he looked daft afterwards, but he did send the keeper the wrong way and was half a foot away from being the perfect penalty. People will always have different opinions on it.

    4. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      The fault lies with the senior players and Southgate. Why would u allow a teenager to take a penalty before you in such an intense moment that they've never been in before.

    5. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      When you send the keeper the wrong way you have 50% of the goal to aim at. I think he was just trying to be more precise than he needed to be. Still, if the ball goes a few inches to the right and goes in off the post, the pressure is off a little, and maybe Sancho and Saka both score. Fine margins.

    Currently 57 forwards in the game - slightly under 3 a team. Watford have 7 🙂

    1. Dogs Of War

      They love a signing at the moment!

      1. farmerfat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Huge gamble going with any of their forwards.

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Their squad is completely bonkers as it stands - 31 players and they're yet to get a 3rd keeper. Must be a huge clear out on it's way I suppose

  10. The Senate

    Cheated against Belgium
    Got extremely lucky against Spain
    Somehow escaped 2 blatant red cards against England

    I can think of several sides more deserving of this trophy than Italy. Classless as ever.

      This is the kind of comment that shows how much arrogant you are, unable to be humble and make self-criticism when needed. You were singing it was coming home, but you couldn't play better than us.
      England team scored very soon and then they did their biggest mistake: they retired in their own half, behind the ball, trying to do what we usually do - defending as a team - without being able to do it. You should have continued your offensive action, trying to score another one. Instead, you chose to change the plot and that was your biggest mistake: it led you to disgrace, it gave us mental energy and it demonstrate us you were not unvincible.
      You had very strong players individually, but they were not a team as we were.

  12. Joey Tribbiani

    2 months, 10 days ago

    Southgate made great decisions all tournament, those 2 last subs were quite weird in my opinion. First thought when I saw Rashford coming on was, it should be Saka off. Never seen him take a penalty, doesnt strike me as a penalty taker. Henderson was in my top 5 takers aswell.
    In the end Donnarumma just too good.

    1. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Lots and lots of positives for England. Rice better than I thought, Pickford has improved, Phillips looked like he belongs to big stages.

    2. DavidBadWillie

        1. DavidBadWillie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Didn’t take a penalty.

          1. Joey Tribbiani
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 10 days ago

            He has missed more penalties than he has scored, not sure what you mean

            1. DavidBadWillie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Well he should have taken one before Saka. He’s a forward who scores goals with a lot more experience.

              Should be able to take a penalty but I guess he didn’t want to ruin his reputation after a fine tournament.

              1. Joey Tribbiani
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Agree that he should take it before Saka does, but Shaw, Phillips and Grealish before him.

    England : Lucky route to get to the world Cup semis.
    Euros: Played a poor German team, again lucky route to final, with every game but one played at home. If ever it was "coming home" this was it.
    Next World Cup? Absolutely no chance, this team is no better than teams that have failed before.
    Media have overhyped this team so much its unbelievable.

      It doesn't matter what England do there'll always be someone who comes along with an "Ah but".

      As an England supporter I'm thrilled that we have a thoughtful, adaptable coach, a diverse set of likable players to get behind and some great exciting talent. Just proud of them and what they've achieved and no caveat will change that for me.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Currently have him but contemplating going without - he looks great value but on the basis of last season he looks like he will be irritating not to own as opposed to dangerous so may hold off early on.

      Wary of setting up a long-term value side as that I suspect is what is most likely to tip me over into early WC.

  15. boc610

    England did well and lots to be hopeful in Qatar for but you test your metal in finals and southgate's biggest failure was having an Italian side on the ropes for 44 minutes and not going for that second goal. there was this facade of attacking football after shaw scored , pretty to watch but it wasn't ever credible. you never really believed they didnt just want to sit on a one goal lead against one of the best tournament teams in history. it was maddening to watch. another goal and the it was dead for the italians

    1. Nomar
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Good assessment.

      What was interesting was that in the first half the Italians looked frustrated and were having a go at each other.

      In the second half the exact reverse happened, Italy got in the ascendancy and England started getting frustrated and having a go at each other.

      The Italian equaliser was so inevitable and from then on it looked like there was only going to be Italy win in ET or pens.

      1. boc610
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        it sadly fits with Gareth's by the book style of management. all the same subs at the same time in every game throughout the tournament. he's the type of manager you can set your watch to and that can take you far but in a final you have to be brave and its just not his MO.

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Don't disagree with your overall assessment but I do think Southgate has grown as a manager and done better in game management this time than last.

          Still think the praise of him is overdone. And agree on the lack of bravery point mostly - he is innately conservative and I'm slightly amused by the twisting of selections such as Trippier as LB as being "brave" - it would be branded as something quite different had another manger tried it.

          Rice off was really the one predictable sub - you have to query his fitness there as he just doesn't seem to be robust enough for the full 90. In the Denmark game Southgate handled it well I thought.

          As you and Nomar point out England had the game for the winning in the first half hour or so and really and truly that was where the game was lost - not going for the jugular then.

    2. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Agreed. Safety first all the way, which to be fair is what go us to the final, but sometimes you have to know when to go for the kill and we didn't.

    At least now Euros are over we can get back to talking about FPL again now.

    Never have I been so excited to read RMT posts!

    373 points - 35400 overall and 1193 in the FFS league.

    Not bad for a casual who didn't even know 90% of the England squad and 99.9% of all players!

    Thanks and see you for the World Cup!
