    Yep, I agree with your overall point that CHVRCHES might not be big enough for the slot. I could see them getting it but I also wouldn't be surprised if the Eavii didn't deem them big enough.

    Come on, Katy Perry isn't a usual third down act. That's like saying The Rolling Stones headlined so Kasabian aren't big enough to. CHVRCHES may not get 3rd down Pyramid but a lot of acts smaller than Katy Perry have done and will do.

    That's pretty cool, I'd like to see Let's Eat Grandma at Glasto next year. Early Park Stage.

    I don't really understand why you asked me the question though, seeing as I never said anything about Gareth Southgate knowing best. It's possible to agree with one decision someone makes without thinking everything they do is correct. He's missed sitters in at least two games (Tunisia and Sweden). I agree that he should have done better with his chances, but I think he's done well (along with the players feeding him) to get those chances. If Rashford had shown anything in the Belgium game I wouldn't have minded Southgate giving him a chance. I think if Rashford came in for Sterling he'd do better at finishing off chances, but I also think he'd get less chances and our all round game would be worse with him in place of Sterling. In any case, I don't think it'd be a good idea to change things now for an extremely important semi final.

    Sterling is getting several chances to score as a result of his runs being found by teammates. We don't have anyone else who can play instead of him who's shown that they're capable of helping us create more chances. So me saying we may create less chances if he's dropped is a stupid point? I didn't even say it was definite, I said it was possible. Come off it, mate. I get that all you do in this thread is try to be contrarian, but this is just pointless.

    When did I say Gareth knows best? Haven't said that once. I think Sterling should have kept his spot but I think Alli shouldn't have done. If you're gonna try and use my words back against me at least make sure it was me who said it. But he did miss some sitters in the last game... From chances he'd fashioned for himself. Just because he tried to take it around the keeper and then his shot was off target, doesn't mean it wasn't a chance. His runs are quite clearly creating chances. How is he missing sitters in the previous games if that isn't true? I'm not saying he's providing assists or making key passes, I'm saying his movement is creating chances for himself when other players find him.

    Well no but you made a stupid point. That's like me saying we could have won every game 20-0 if we'd taken James Coppinger. You can't prove that we wouldn't but I'd definitely be stupid for trying to claim it.

    Yeah I agree with all that. I'd have started RLC over Alli on Sat. What? I said we didn't struggle to create chances on Saturday, then you replied stating we only had two shots on target despite previously bemoaning Sterling for missing a load of sitters. I'm now asking you how did Sterling miss a load of sitters if (in your opinion) we created no chances. Where did I say Sterling isn't getting into positions to miss sitters? I said the complete opposite, that he is creating chances.

    He'd have been 5th choice at best behind Stones, Smalling, Cahill and Jones. And Trippier wouldn't have been starting either.

    I'd say it's pretty certain not to materialise now. Reckon they'll be either 3rd down Pyramid or JP headliners if they play Glasto next year, which I'd say is either at the same level or just below what they did in 2016 (Other sub).

    How did Sterling miss a load of sitters if he didn't have any chances lol Well maybe if we had another option in the squad who's shown evidence of being able to fashion more chances than Sterling does, but we don't.

    I've seen previous England teams play against worse teams than Tunisia and create much less chances. And we didn't score a penalty against Tunisia, but we should have had two, so that could have easily been 4-1 without even considering all the near misses. We didn't struggle to create opportunities on Saturday. Although if Sterling was dropped like people are asking for then we may have done. I don't care if we Greece our way to it, and if we do that it'll still be an improvement on what our previous teams achieved. No one expected us to win the World Cup, and if we'd performed like out recent teams did we could easily be out by now. We have a great chance of making it to the final; even if we had an "easy" run to get there it's still an achievement that no one expected of us (and knocking out Colombia and Croatia is no mean feat).

    I was just making a joke about Danny Welbeck scoring a World Cup winning goal. I don't actually think he's avoiding risking him Yeah I was joking but I actually wouldn't mind him being brought on. I certainly think he's a useful player and definitely should be in the squad. Problem with Vardy, for me, is if he's on the bench I don't see much use for him. Like you say, he plays well against big teams (as they don't sit back and they allow space in behind), but we're only likely to bring on a striker when we need a goal, so the opposition probably won't be sitting back. I guess maybe if we're drawing with France/Belgium in the final and it's getting late in the game with them pushing for a winner then that'd work. I actually wanted us to bring him on when we went a goal up against Colombia so he could punish them when they went searching for an equaliser. I wouldn't have expected previous England teams (as in like the last 12 years) to get through that Colombia match or to dispatch Sweden with such little bother. Or to beat Panama with the ease we did, or to create such a ridiculous amount of chances against Tunisia. The draw we've had has obviously been beneficial and we would probably be out by now if we'd played a top team, but I still think this team has been way more impressive than any other England team I can remember at a World Cup (which begins with 2006; all I remember about 2002 is Ronaldinho's goal against us).

    I don't think Southgate wants to risk him before he bangs the winner in the final.

    But if you're gonna replace someone in the starting XI for a world cup semi final you have to have shown something in the game time you've had this far. I don't see any reason why Rashford deserves to knock Sterling out of the team.

    Football 18/19

    What part of it's wrong? People are shitting on him for missing chances (which is fair), but his all round game has been fine. Seems like people are just seeing him waste a couple of chances and calling for him to be dropped without even considering the rest of his performance and what he offers. Yeah exactly. Everyone who wants him dropped wants to see Rashford instead, who did nothing against Belgium, missed a one on one in the same way Sterling has been, and offered about a tenth as much on the rest of the pitch.

    Football 18/19

    Yeah perhaps if you think the only part of the game is scoring goals. Edit: I saw this video posted earlier in response to someone saying the same as you. I've watched quite a few of their videos in the past on certain managers and players and they're always spot on.
