A lot of different age groups on the site but when I was at school not a single female had any interest what so ever in football 

These days they are pundits and trackside or chatting away all about tactics on the team 

When did all that start and why ? 

Probably because Dad wanted a boy 😂

That Sterling is always the victim 

He always looks like he can't be arsed with anything 

He does all the snide looks in the book

Pretty lack luster display by England, but least they got the result. Didn't like the BBC commentary team having a hard on over Sterling, obviously blinded by the goal. Guy wasted so many decent chances. Seemed to continue his poor run of form and wasn't "his best performance all season" as one of the commentator's said, in my book. Hope they start him vs Scotland so I know there's a 99% chance of a fuckup whenever he has the ball.

agree even his goal was straight at the keeper

Very unfair imo to say it was lackluster, it was like 28 degrees against probably one of the most underrated teams going many having their tournament debuts

He nearly let the defender get to the ball as well before the goal and yeah, straight at the keeper.

I mean, they had some decent spells but for the majority of the game it was flat as fuck. Yeah it's proper roasting but meh, even the crowd was flat. Just felt very underwhelming as a neutral.

I dunno man, I actually have a little bit more hope about Friday's game now after this display today. If we can get a win tomorrow then I'll probably even get a line going for Friday as well.

Everyone was bigging up italy beating turkey 3-0

If Italy played Croatia today they would of got completely outclassed imo 

Scotland will be penned back pretty much for 70% of the game

Guess it depends how much you enjoy watching football. If you're only watching it cause you have a line on then yeah probably sounds about right

Never been deeply into football mate,  for me it revolves around silly money for what is a ball being kicked,  I don't get it.

I can still sit and enjoy certain games but when sitting with pals they way they jump about does my box in as it could be two teams from over the border so they are not fans / supporters.

Dude next door to me has a pal who is diehard Chelsea but he's born n' bread in Ayrshire and looks a twat in all the gear and is the ages of me 

Id still not rule out lumping on a certain game again in the future but these days it's a mood & price thing

I honestly don't think I will watch a Euro 2020 game unless England get to the semifinals.

 

Typical glory hunting from a Man Utd fan there. 🤦‍♂️
