Tried to post in here yesterday but the forum (or my macbook) was being an absolute arsehole

Was really suprised Denmark smashed Ireland the way they did - especially considering Ireland went 1 up.
Eriksen was phenomenal and his hattrick completely ruined any justification i had for taking him out of both of my dream teams

They have some excellent youngsters coming through the ranks, however I think they've missed a trick by not starting to blood them now.

They're lucky they've got Donnaruma to step straight into Buffon's boots, but the defenders errmm yeah, the highly rated youngsters are more attacking IE Chiesa.

Italy failed to score in 180 minutes against Sweden thus failing to make the World Cup. I wonder if Zlatan will come out of retirement for Russia.

We looked so short of ideas against 9 defenders, plus the Ref didn't help, oh and that nasty horrid shove by the twunt who scored the winner on Joe Allen so he got knocked silly by Meyler was nasty too.

Even if we did score we'd have finished 9th of the 2nd places so a win was needed and it just didn't happen. Not beating Georgia at home cost us.

Bradshaw may if we need a goal as our other options are Robson-Kanu and Vokes haha. We're as guilty as the England cricket team for kolpaks, but we're small so we can use the grandparent route...we do right down to grass roots too.

Adam Davies, Tom Bradshaw and Ryan Hedges. Three tarn players in the Welsh squad and nobody born in the country they represent

Bradshaw even was the replacement for Gareth Bale which I found very funny.

Doubt any will see game time just like the other night.

So we haven't lost a qualifying match for eight years, won to nill AGAIN and by winning our last two games we actually helped out Scotland, who must be for the first time in their history wanted us to win two games in a row LOL

Gone for the 2/1 Sky Bet offer today England 2+ goals, England 5+ corners and Lithuania 20+ booking points.

Same odds nearly came in other night (England one goal short) but being away will help us because the home teams can't park the bus against us or their fans will let them be told in the stands that it's not acceptable.
