Thought I would start off a thread, bit of friendly banter not too heavy and an opportunity to express your ideas about your favourite team.

 

What are you hoping for in the January transfer market?

 

As a Liverpool fan I am hoping for cover for Mane and the front 3.

We like leaving it too late, and where let off so many times...  We need to seriously up our game to have any chance against an in form Spain team

The only problem is @RunrigForever, England didn't play too well, in what was an easy group.

We play Spain in the final. Here are their results: Not lost a game!

I agree @Cleoriff, but it is a one-off game and anything can happen. The bookies have Spain as clear favourites, which is good as it might take a bit of pressure off England. 👍

 

England are improving and are managing, by hook or by crook, to get results. I suspect that, given the choice, Gareth Southgate would settle for nil-nil AET and take his chance in a penalty shoot-out !

YaY !!! ..... = ..... The Lionesses ........... Punches Right Fist in Air in Glee ... !!!

 

The England match is on in the bar I frequent & feel at home in despite drinking only Yorkshire tea ... & ... a 'Gaffer's Special' ... = ... Milky Coffee with Caramel ... !!! ............ I also drink blackcurrant cordial with lots of Ice & that all important straw = it makes it taste sooo much better.

 

I'd like to think I'll be in Speakeasy bar at time of kick off ... but ... it's late ........... I'd be better at a 5pm kick-off.

 

Well ........... Let's Wish Our Lads Luck on Sunday ..... xxx ... slight_smile

 

Hope Spain play good football with Natural Flair ..... & ..... it's a decent match for us all to watch ... !!!

Bit late joining the party...

My thoughts....

England [men] are nowhere as good as the Lionesses. England have been boring, predictable, and lucky to get to the final, with a manager who is so set in his ways; whereas the Lionesses show skill and excitement, have a manager who is committed, not afraid to make changes and drop "favourites" - and of course the girls did what the guys didn`t - won Euros !!!

As for today` game ? Yeh I want England to win but fear that, with their record in the competiton, Spain will just clinch it...

My score prediction - Enland 2 - 2 Spain after extra time; Spain to win on penalties....

I really hope I`m wrong.
