Beaten, on the day, by a better, stronger side.

We have a young team who will have benefitted from the experience and will come again.

Very well done indeed, lads.

Yes letís be proud for a change. They did so well and just couldnít get to the line as good old JB would sing.

My money is on France to win a second title but Iíll be hoping Croatia get it.

...and worth reflecting that the English team went further than Brazil, Germany, Spain, Argentina, Portugal...Holland and Italy !

Depressing not to get to the final, but not too shabby.

It does occur to me though how unlikely it is for any team to win a knockout tournament unless they are head and shoulders above the competition. All the teams in the last eight will be capable of lifting the trophy with a bit of luck, which then makes it a 1 in 8 lottery for those getting to the quarter-finals. Think how many multiples of 4 years could pass before a team wins ! Will it be up to 60 years of hurt by 2026 ?

After Italia 90 I stopped investing passion on an outcome over which I impose no influence whatsoever. Spectating on sport really is a futile waste of emotion and energy...or is it ?

Kind Regards,
Rimmer.

Not a footy fan but loved watching the last two games and disappointed we lost, but as everone else is saying a great effort and to get to the semis too is an achievement....no `celeb` twats either, just decent honest sportsmen.

Also the Itchies played well and fairly so my hopes are that they win....

Of course it is. That's why people do it.

Isn't it?

We keep hearing how young the squad is, how they will only get better etc etc

It was disappointing to see how they faded coming to the end of the tournament.
Roll on the European and letís see how well they fare.

Personally I think we held the ball a lot better than in the past. But a huge amount of time was spent getting it up to the opponents end in open play, only for nothing to happen.....

Corners, free kicks and penalties being what we looked best at. Thatís not going to win the big prizes.

It looks like The Toon are getting ready to ward of relegation once again and itís only the start of the season.

A manager who must feel like he is banging his head against a brick wall. He wonít be there to guide Newcastle back up if we do go down.

The fat controller came to watch The Toon play at Selhurst Park.
Must have something to do with the fact they were playing in London........ well sort of. Thornton Heath to be exact...... or is it South Norwood, I can never remember.

He tried to catch my attention but I ignored him.
