    Henderson is defo hot and cold. He had a pretty decent game against Sweden if memory serves. Blocked a defo goal for the Swedes at one point.

    Wait a minute. Ye are sure that England are a better team than Croatia?? And that the only better teams left in the competition are in the other side of the draw? I would not be too sure...

    If it has worked in the past for them then they will continue to try and get away with it, unless a hard line is taken to try and stamp it out (which I dont see happening anytime soon). And it happens everywhere in football, not just South America. Sure Henderson threw himself on the ground unnecessarily from the "headbutt" instance and was being applauded for doing so. Some said he has every right to do so. Yeah he was caught, but he was obviously acting in his reaction to it and there is no way what happened him floors him. If peoples attitudes are "its OK when its my team" or "its OK in certain circumstances" then is will always be in the game. Thats professionalism and winning a all costs for you.

    I’ll have to view it again. But I don’t care if he did. They are all at it and it’s one of the least enforced rules in the game.

    Did he? Thought he stepped out and narrowed the angle....

    Maybe, but I would not be as strong in that conviction using the words "clear favorites". Croatia, irrespective of last nights performance, would still be up there with them and are already in the quarters......... Its pretty interesting the way the draw has unfolded, but is there an argument to making the knockout stages seeded, or even drawn blindly ie put all teams into a hat an pick em out at random to play each other at each stage of the tournament? I dont know if I like these set pathways in tournament football........

    I thought there was too many changes in the English set up to properly judge if someone deserved the call up for the next game or not, irrespective if they had performed or not. I felt it would have been wise for Southgate to play the first 11 minus the few positions he felt there was some genuine competition and questions to be addressed/answered. But like Martinez he chose to conserve and protect the first 11 and there is very little wrong with doing that.

    Germany had a more "successful" group stage finishing top of theirs thus in theory giving them the easier path forward. England however came second in their group and so had to play the big boys earlier. In that context I would say Germany had a more successful WC to England "4 shure".

    When was the last time England beat a decent team at a World Cup? Do we really think from what we have witnessed thus far that this England team will differ from all other England teams since 1990?
