Martinez masterclass there. Bizarre team selection. Concede to a set piece. Shit subs. Loads of posession but create barely any clear chances.

Shit manager.

See you later baldy.

Also goes back to not picking a LB in the squad at all.

They looked dead on their feet after 60 minutes as well.

Hopefully puts an end to people saying we shouldnít have sacked him.

Has Martinez taken credit for being the last Belgian side to be knocked out the competition yet?

I quite like Rio but he needs to fuck off with shouts like that about winning by three or four.

Embarrassed himself when he said weíd get pat Iceland no problem.

Really?

Unnecessary wind-up stuff in my opinion.

People call it cute or game management like itís admirable, but not for me.

If we're lucky enough to be leading going into injury time I want any player not already on a booking wasting every second they can.
Cordiali saluti, motherfuckers.

Think he does like vs Brazil was happy to play that role.

When youíre the main striker (and no other proper forwards for large parts) he has to stay in the middle more.

No, when he drifts out wide it leaves space for Fellaini, Hazard, and De Bruyne to get in there, all of whom are excellent finishers in different ways.

If he ran the channels more and varied his game both him and his teams would reap the benefits.

He was so static and predictable tonight, and the French defence just swallowed him up.

Up to you.

I donít want them to do that dribbling the ball away shit when itís the oppositions free-kick, and goading them into lashing out.

Run it into the corner when in possession and all that, fine, though.

Haha, yeah heís got a snide side, for sure, but itís not the part of his gane that I like.

His energy and drive are more impressive to me, although the snide side can be fleetingly appealing when things are getting really tribal, but Iím always disappointed with myself after 😁

As good as this WC has been, I can't help but feel it would be pretty underwhelming if France won. I know they're a class side, but I just can't take to them.

#TeamCroatia here.

I really can't think of a better team in the tournament.

Varane's amazing.

I didn't say they weren't the best, I said I find them an underwhelming winner. I want a shock winner, something left-field, hence why I'm rooting for Croatia.
