    I'm not a fan of Depay. But the headband demands respect. I'm getting flashbacks to the Luton center back when they had the plastic pitch. Forget his name, Foster maybe? Remember the fuzzy headband and the shaggy perm though.

    I see this as respectful homage. Should have gone as Arnold Muhren in hindsight

    Not gonna lie. I have no idea who Guehi is. Trent seems to be the weak link or the position up for debate. Saka club form not been great? Kane not 100% fit? I don't follow club football, not really so just bits and pieces I hear/read. On paper the front four are ridiculous.

    Me neither. Never heard of him. In fact there was a few in the initial squad I'd never heard of though being an Ipswich fan never really followed the premier league closely - will next season of course

    Forget what I said about Saka. Once again, Bellingham aside he's our best weapon. I want Foden to do well but it's not really happening for him.

    I haven't watched a full game for I don't know how many years but I got a lovely rosy nostalgic feeling seeing that the Scotch got absolutely thumped by the Germans. I've even bothered to look up the qualifying system from the groups and am really hoping they don't even manage to qualify. Big game coming up against Switzerland. I might even watch it.

    England don't seem anything outside of Bellingham. I only saw some highlights but they don't seem like they've got a chance of winning. Foden is yet another player who looks really good at domestic level but then becomes anonymous at international level. Maybe I should actually watch the fucker play for two minutes or be able to pick him out of a lineup before I make a judgement like that but it just fits in with the endless list of these fuckers over the years.

    That was a very nervous display.

    I can understand now why Foden may not fit into the system which is ridiculous.

    I'll take a mediocre performance first game up so long as there's three points on the board. We don't generally win openers.

    Bellingham good. Saka, good, Rice, good. Guehi, good. Pickford, again didn't let England down.

    Trent was sloppy throughout. Gave the ball away too easily. Kane barely had a kick. Foden looked like he was coming alive a bit in the second half, but then we became passive. I don't understand how he can't impose himself on the game more. He was free to roam where he wanted. He doesn't have to set the World alight with every pass. But demand the ball, progress the play. He's a good footballer, World class. If he gets on the ball 10 times, 8/9 times he's going to do something good. But he's largely anonymous. Really disappointed.

    All that said. I'm not sure if I'd feel more or less comfortable if we looked a million dollars and put them to the sword first game up.

    Three points on the board and a clean sheet. I'll take it.

    We can build on this but foden a concern. Maybe Gordon will get a shot on the left next game.

    Kane had one good chance and should have scored but he'll come good I'm sure.

    Portugal won the euros with six draws and one win (won 3 games on penalties and extra time goals)

    France got by Austria, but got brutalized in the process. Mbappe may have suffered a broken nose, and Griezmann got slammed against the boards. Curiously it was by the guy who allowed the OG to lose the game for Austria.
    France looked like a walking M.A.S.H. unit by the end of the game.

    Not gonna lie. Loving Germany nicking the Bulls player intro.

    Croatia Albania was a cracking game.

    Scotland not playing patsy against the Swiss like they did against Germany.

    Beautiful goal by Shaqiri.

    Snow White must be proud.

    Still anyone's game.

    I've said it before. Flower of Scotland is one of very few Anthems I actually like. They win that one.I hope they can get a result here.
