    Football 18/19

    Nigeria v Iceland is one of those games when I think either team winning or the draw is just as likely. I think the coverage was a little disrespectful to Croatia as I don’t think there is much between the teams apart from Messi. Croatia could go far in this tournament.

    Commentator said Argentina can only get out of group on goal difference. Surely if Nigeria beat Iceland that isn’t correct.

    The world cup has been very dull for the first week, let's hope things pick up.

    Have found Denmark disappointing again. Hope Australia can get a goal.

    ITV just referred to Eriksen as Tottenham’s Eriksen, I thought I was watching Denmark!

    I think one thing about the current England squad is there isn’t a huge difference between th3 first 11 and backups, I therefore think it makes sense to rotate the squad.

    I think his trouble was wwe were transitioning to the attitude era and his character didn’t really fit in. I felt he never found the magic he did with Sting.

    We will never know if they would have got a goal if needed. I think Spain are happy to take the 1-0 and trust their defence.

    I think Trump gets a kick about being a bully, he is a vile human being.

    I just didn't see this fluidity you saw, but we will have to agree to disagree! No evidence but just an opinion from my years watching England.

    Spain still look in control to me. I can't remember a team ever strolling to an international tournament.

    A bit like Portugal in the last Euros! I think the commentators said no yellow cards yet. It’s pretty much job done for them, I doubt they care about finishing first or second which takes pressure off.

    In the group stage you know most of the non Europe/ South America teams are only going 3 games, but I want to see them at least go for it. In my mind the smaller teams looked better in 2014, but maybe I’m looking through rose tinted glasses as I loved that group stage.

    As I said I don’t see much difference in the way England played against Tunisiavand Wales with the same final outcome. It got me thinking if there is an English and British style. I have always considered Wales as England with less/worse players. To me one big difference between England and Scotland ( and to a slightly lesser extent Wales) is the former is a lot more diverse as a country, with significantly more (even forgetting the huge population difference) black athletic footballers. England have therefore been able to implement pace more than the other home nations. I think you have a point and should have probably said England’s style of pressing. To me it’s difficult to compare the games of England and Spain. While the latter may press I feel there is more tactical discipline to the pressing. I still feel England have a tendency to go too hard too fast, get tired and then spend the game doing the same thing hoping it will eventually work, To me the lack of the top Central midfielder who can control the game is a huge miss.

    WWE

    I think you got your years mixed up as I’m pretty sure it was 96. Apart from that I agree completely. Like you i was introduced to wrestling through itv with sting and Vader carrying the main event supplemented by a mid card of Austin, Steamboat, Rude, Rhodes and Windham. Vader. I think Vader went to the wwe a couple of years too late, however he had a decent run.
