Two pods I listen to seemed split on whether this was charming or shithousery on his part (I need to watch it again as I was in a bit of a state by this point).

That's the joy of the Italians, absolute shithousery with a big charming grin. Immobile dives and pops back up with a cheeky wee grin, when Kane and Sterling dive they act like petulant teens. Italy will use every trick in the book but when you ask them about it they say they will use every trick in the book.

Ha, good point - the dichotomy of it all. I'll watch the highlights back later.

Yes, whereas when Scottish players dive they so it with so much more style, panache and dignity.

So the big question.....

Same formation or revert to 3-4-3? 

There are benefits to both.

Emerson is a poor defender so playing James or Trippier on the right would be too much for him to handle. 

Issue with 3-4-3 is that Mount is likely to drop out and he’s the best to disrupt Jorginho, which could be key. 
 

Tough choice for Southgate to make.

Has the capacity been raised to 90,000?  I heard there were rumours.

From what I've heard its staying at 65,000.

I follow a few well informed Twitter accounts, seems like the Italian FA is taking their full allocation and selling to italian nationals living in the UK and bringing in 1,000 from Italy who will be in a COVID secure bubble (airport > ground > airport)

England are selling their last tickets today and if there is anything leftover from all the various sales (England Italy and UEFA general) then they will go on sale today. (who knows, there might not be any to sell!)

Bless David Marshall for trying to keep up with these modern trends like sweeper keepers at his age.

Sounds like Glasto secret ticket sale day, only difference is this will only last a couple of days!

My daughters school have just emailed to say they’ll allow children to come in late if they need a lie in after the football 🙂

Now wondering if I should keep her up to watch it, she’s totally uninterested in football now but could be a very special memory for her in future…

TBF, I think he was trying to evolve the role - he was more of a central midfield keeper. Ahead of his time.

This is starting to become torture....was in the office yesterday so got quite a lot done, but I'm WFH today...phone going off every five minutes either with whatsapp pictures of something to do with the final, people talking about the final, me and my brother constantly texting about getting him a ticket for the final, me making plans with my friends (we have tickets for the final) and anything else inbetween.

Still two days to go!

I’m oddly chilled about our chances for Sunday. Have been a bag of nerves in the build up to each match so far but completely calm at the moment, just excited to be there.

Almost feel like just getting there was the hard work and what will be will be on Sunday.

TBH I didn't expect us to get this far so I'm not expecting us to win....if we lose, then we go again for Qatar in 18 months time.

Same here. I genuinely am just happy to see us in a final. Feels like a major stumbling block to overcome for the next few tournaments.

Had two bets before the tournament started - Tenner on Italy to win the tournament at 9/1 and a tenner on Kane for golden boot at 6/1.

Financially the best outcome for me would be 3-2 Italy with Kane scoring twice.

(Now that I’ve said that out loud I have to stick a quid on it. Otherwise it’ll happen and people will say “should have bet on it”)

Very much this. Admit kept expecting us to be knocked out all the way through

Italians clear favourites for me but we are in a fucking final. Can't wait

 

Most often finals are dull affairs , but even if this one is then I will not notice
