    Did we really???

    It was a nice ride watching a bunch of average players do OK. I'd say no. Nice fella but got a lot to do to get the enthusiasm back into the national team

    Compare him and his manners and composure and ability to answer tough questions, against those of, lets say, Trump ? Who is more genuine, and believable? Who would you follow given the choice of those 2 ?

    You prefer wooly argumentative answers to quiet calm truth?

    What is it about the British generally that you like ?

    Bodd is renowned for being anti-UK. He hates this country.

    This is what confuses me about a lot of brexit supporters. They throw allegations that remainers are anti british, but then insult true brits and want to be like others instead.

    I am no football fan, but admire Southgate's britishness, and how he encouraged his team to follow his example. We got beat, but brought pride home !

    Do you have any evidence to prove that.

    The England hype has been well and truly stuffed by Belgium. In this WC, the only decent team England played was Belgium....twice...and lost twice.!!

    I bet the Welsh would have done 'em if they'd been there.(y)
     
  13. Maybe Trump should be England manager and Southgate should be President.

    A bit of luck really. The French look as if they could have destroyed us

    Looked more like Africa won. Think I spotted one white face on the French team.

    They're probably all a lot nicer than you.
