“England expects that every man will do his duty.”

“Cry ‘Havoc’ and let slip the dogs of war! ”

“But if it be a sin to covet honour, I am the most offending soul alive.”

The red tops will start to drag out all the cliches.   God forbid we should meet the Germans at any point further into the tournament.

But for now, it’s Panama, and the narrative is already being framed that this is abattle between the fledgling, skilful heroes of England and the dastardly, rough, Masters of the Dark Arts that are Panama.

To me, they looked like a typical South American side.  Very athletic, well-drilled defensively, with the ability to break and get up the field quickly.  Just the type of side that might cause England a few problems.

The saving grace for this England squad, which might also perversely be its downfall later in the tournie, is that they are so inexperienced.  They haven’t been imbued with the fear of failing for their country as so many have been before.  The average number of caps per player, for all the squads attending the finals, is 34 (33.7 rounded). England have attained, on average, just 20.

They played with real belief for 25 mins or so against Tunisia, before retreating into their shell a little – not helped by Dele Alli being at around 50% for 60 mins of the game.  Why Southgate didn’t sub him is beyond me.

Rashford looks great to me.  Give the bloke a start and help him to build into the tournament.  He’s a game-changer.  Lingaard is frustrating: plenty of good runs but not enough end product.  Sterling is the same.  Can rip a defence part but finishing or picking the right pass is patchy at best.  I don’t like Walker at RCB but I’m happy Tripps is getting game time.

Anyway, I’ll be on here later for the game and hope to see you here.

    The spurs stat man has posted a picture of kane’s first penalty with the ball tucked firmly in the corner of the net. He is claiming that it’s the perfect penalty. I was under the impression that the perfect penalty was to the bottom corner as it would be harder for the keeper to get there as opposed to the top corner. I’ve asked him this and still wait g for a reply. Anyone?

    • Caspurs 24/06/2018 at 10:11 pm

      I would say anywhere the keeper can’t reach, which would presumably include the top corner eider fort?

    • 61SpursNut 24/06/2018 at 10:25 pm

      Kane’s penalties were both perfect as they would have simply vapourised any human tissue that was in the path of the missile ball

  • AntSpurs 25/06/2018 at 12:25 am

    The perfect penalty is what you saw today (twice). Fucking amazing stuff from Southgate, I’ve wondered for years why there’s a lack of creativity on set pieces and Southgate has his shit on point. Those goals, all of em were well thought out and drilled and Kane, well what else is there to say, he’s a machine, a goal scoring machine. The balls to hit them both like that where you have to be so precise. Hitting the ball like that could go in the stands with the slightest miscalculation. The Lingard goal is definitely the goal of the tournament. Scincilatng shit. Tripper I hope to hear no more about being a championship player, he is playing out of his skin and very well deserved for his patience. This WC so far has been a Tottenham and Manchester show and we are in for some good times this one. Southgate is a clever dude and he’s due huge respect for these performances.

    I think England can win this. One thing that Ramsey gave England was confidence and they had faith.They may not have been the best team in the world but they looked on top of what ever they were. England’s confidence was at a premium. The determination on their faces was real before the game.

    • Ronwol196061 25/06/2018 at 3:47 am

      They certainly looked a bit iffy at the back during periods in the first half against Tunisia. Boyata in particular looked vulnerable.

      Fortunately it’s no longer a make-or-break game so, whilst I understand the desire to maintain a winning momentum, it’s an ideal opportunity to give a couple of fringe players a run out so that they’re ready to step in should we need them later on. If there’s the slightest doubt about Alli’s fitness I’d say let him sit this one out; it’s more important that he’s fully fit for the first knockout game.

      • Ronwol196061 25/06/2018 at 11:49 am

  • MysteriousStranger 25/06/2018 at 11:20 pm

    Just watched the highlights of the Iran – Portugal game. Another contentious VAR decision. Granted it is good for determining if a goal scored was on/offside as seen to effect with the Spanish goal tonight which had incorrectly been ruled out. But I can’t be doing with seeing these penalties get awarded from what are basically ball to hand incidents.

    • Ronwol196061 26/06/2018 at 12:30 am

      Its a very difficult thing.I wouldnt have given a penalty as I think its not only the quantity its the quality of the foul. It was a harmless thing even if it did hit his arm.
      In the situation where Ronaldo was yellow carded.I would have given him a yellow. It was a good choice. yes Ronaldo commited a foul but it wasnt all one sided.
      These are fine situations that ask the ref to make a decision. Its all relative to the game itself and even leading up to the infringement and even VAR or the ref can get it wrong. Its life

      • UnkleTaff 26/06/2018 at 9:00 am

        The one thing that should not have been awarded there was a yellow card. Either he used his elbow or he didn’t. There is no middle ground.

        Personally I think he knew exactly what he was doing and should have been sent off as a consequence.

  • McG ⚽⚽ 25/06/2018 at 11:28 pm

  • UnkleTaff 26/06/2018 at 9:19 am

    As amusing as it was seeing Ronaldo fail to score from the spot yesterday, the penalty should have been retaken for two reasons:

    1) The goalkeeper’s starting position was about a yard behind the goal line and,

    2) At the time the ball was struck the ‘keeper had advanced to a position of at least a yard in front of the line. This means that he effectively ran towards Ronaldo as he was making his run up.

    Law 14 states that the goalkeeper must remain on the goal line until the ball is kicked.

      So there.

  • UnkleTaff 26/06/2018 at 9:28 am

    I’m completely opposed to VAR technology for a whole host of reasons, but had Iran gone on from their contentious penalty and scored with that injury time effort and knocked Portugal out I would have laughed my nuts off.

      I was a for, but had concerns. Still think it’s to early to properly judge but those concerns have grown. The original premise was righting obvious wrongs. It now seems to have strayed into subjective areas which isn’t helping matters.

      • UnkleTaff 26/06/2018 at 10:04 am

        If it were helping the decision-making process by offering quick judgements on simple yes or no cases (like goal-line technology is doing) then it would be hard to argue against it, but as it stands it’s just adding another layer of subjectivity and slowing the game down massively in the process.

        For my part I would much rather live with the occasional mistake and keep the game free flowing than have it stopped for minutes at a time whilst a check is being made. Particularly if the ultimate decision is still a contentious one.

          The problem now with Var is that the commercials will step in and money will be added to the pot and you can forget all the objectivity and subjectivity,it will be about the money

          • UnkleTaff 26/06/2018 at 11:21 am

            That’s a horrible thought but I doubt it’ll ever get to that stage.

            Having said that, the USA will be joint-hosting the 2026 World Cup so who knows…

            Fingers crossed VAR will have been kicked into touch by then (although I have to admit I won’t be holding my breath on that score).

            • ronwol196061 26/06/2018 at 1:29 pm

              Im not saying it will…but there is a possibility

          • MysteriousStranger 26/06/2018 at 1:11 pm

            There will be no commercial breaks during VAR checks, if that’s what you are inferring.

    Ok, although against my better judgement, I’ll give you all a clue.
    One of eight is now missing.
    First to get it right, gets Taffs wine gums.

    I count eight in the picture. Is this like that dress that was white and gold/blue and black, and some of you can only see seven?

    Going to see Jill Scott tonite!

      Cool. Enjoy!

        Let you know how it goes..hope she does some jazz

        • MysteriousStranger 26/06/2018 at 1:34 pm

          Just listening to Harmony Of Difference by Kamasi Washington, (which is a great EP) before I plough ahead and listen to his new and also very long album Heaven and Earth. That should keep my senses busy for the next three and a half hours. Nice!

    The one thing that should not have been awarded there was a yellow card. Either he used his elbow or he didn’t. There is no middle ground.

    Personally I think he knew exactly what he was doing and should have been sent off as a consequence.

    I disagree. There was definately an infraction by Ronaldo as the elbow did graze the Iranian. To what extent we will never know but it did. On the other hand the Iranian was partly at fault for looking for it,he impeded Ronaldo to some extent. I think there is room for a reasonable solution. That would be the yellow and thats what the referee gave.

    • Ronwol196061 26/06/2018 at 11:24 am

      Its called judgement

      • HD 26/06/2018 at 11:48 am

        Yes. Whenever the human element is involved, judgement will be involved. Not a bad thing, just the way it is.

        • Fat Bertha 26/06/2018 at 11:52 am

          That’s some good-ole down-home country-boy wisdom right there.

      Christiaaan

        Moi ausie!, especially since Hugo is on the bench for this one.

          • Flat Oeuf 26/06/2018 at 2:42 pm

            Hugo sitting this out?! Anyone know who these 2 might meet in the next round and what the permutations are?

            • 61SpursNut 26/06/2018 at 2:53 pm

              Winners play either Nigeria, Iceland or the Argies.
              Runners-up almost certainly play Croatia.

              • Flat Oeuf 26/06/2018 at 4:17 pm

                Fank you, Nut. Much obliged.
