To think the World Cup literally used to be the thing I was most excited about in life.

The state of it now.

Don't think I've ever been as unexcited by a World Cup as this one. Really weird.

Suppose we should savour it as after this one and the next they'll be increasing it from 32 to 48 teams, and then the tournament is truly fucked.

Think Lawrenson is drunk. Can barely get the words out.

Let's say we beat Panama. Will we go full strength against Belgium or play a second string to keep key players fresh for the knockout?

For me we should go more of less full strength to try keep the momentum going and try get the confidence boost a result against Belgium would provide.

England managers of old though would rest players a number of players I reckon. Southgate I'm not sure what he'll do.

Hmm. Any player apart from Ronaldo and I reckon that's a red. Ref has completely bottled it giving a yellow - if you think he's tried to elbow him in the face, how can it be anything other than a red?

I'm not saying I don't like VAR, but it's almost like we're watching a different game altogether in the WC compared to say the Prem.

Wouldn’t have given a yellow myself.

Yeah. I can see the argument for either a red or nothing. But yellow is a complete bottle job and never the right answer.

Ref can't even blow the full time whistle properly.

Pickford palming the ball into danger is his worst trait. Maybe Everton coaches will help him through it if it gets some national attention.

On the pens...

Called Henderson missing. Doesn’t score or assist enough goals generally to be taking penalties.


Same. You can always see it in their face right before the kick.

Henderson clearly thinks he "should" be taking pens because that's the right thing for a "leader" to do, but penalties are all about your mental fortitude under pressure and if it's too much for you then fair enough, but fucking don't stick your hand up to take one.
