There's an old saying in football ..you can only beat whats put in front of you. And very true it is. But after listening to the media hype describing them as heroes, I'd like to put things into perspective.

They had what most people viewed as an easy route to the final.
They were in a group with only one other decent team and came second of four.
They beat two minnow teams in the group and lost to the decent one.
They squeezed through on penalties against Colombia. Were probably the better team but were not totally convincing.
They beat an extremely poor Sweden side who frankly were not up for it.
They came up against Croatia who were up for it and lost for the second time in the tournament. Six games two losses.

Do I think its the start of something big for English football post World Cup ?...no not really. I wish I could say I did. Hope that assessment is not too caustic for you daggie. ;)

But hey you never know.

Nice to see you are so concerned about English football and Brexit dagwood.) I'm almost weeping with thankfulness. :D
I cannot find any post that even sujests that we would win the World Cup, only that we had pride in our national team, it obviose  you don’t but many millions not only in the uk but around the world have that same pride, so again I say no one is bothered what you think, I am starting to wonder if you really are English? Or just a pretender to the throne not the one the Queen sits on but the one you number two on as you sprout a load of sh-t

Who said anything about winning it, certainly not me and I never accused you of saying they would either. It's about their performances along the way and how each of us translates it . Do we think they are heroes regardless, or do we take a deeper look at how it all went and be a little more reserved in our judgement. So you are of the opinion anyone critical of the National football team can't be English? LOL. Grow up man it's a game.

You can be proud of their limited achievements ...which I am, but you can also look at it logically ...which I do.

The only one spouting number two on top of their patriotic high horse is you.

As I said before who do you think you are that you feel I should be forced to look at it the same way as you.

I'll disregard dagwood as he is in full England football team grovelling mode at present. Give him time , he will move on to Brexit. ;)

If I wanted to really discard you daggie I would block your posts like most of the others on here.

I wouldn't do that as you are as entitled to your opinion as I am to mine. I might not like yours but then you don't like mine. And sometimes, just sometimes the debate can override the arguments and we get somewhere.
I wish Mr Proud patriot could be a bit more easy going with other peoples ideas of how the football went instead of finger pointing with accusations of high treason for doubting their new found potential..

The reason I wished to see England doing well is because every kid in Ireland with a talent for soccer, his dream is to be picked for a trial and go on to play for an English side, and a good few make it.
Also the many hours of enjoyment we get from English football each week either traveling to the matches or watching it on television.
It would be stupid to allow politics spoil all that

Well I hope you all enjoyed the World Cup as much as I did. Winners and loosers that’s what its all about.
 But I’m glad that I started this tread in spite of the usual suspects trying to cause mayhem.
 Viva la France 🇫🇷

Viva la France...that says it all about you daggie. If I was an Irishman I would wonder what the hell you were all about.

But then apparently you are an England supporter as well. Talk about a man of many faces. LOL

Don’t forget this forum is about a Spanish Island and I’m Irish. I wished England luck for the reasons I outlined but then the best team in the world won and I’m happy with that.
But then what would a bigoted looser like you know.
I know you’ll come back with some sort of drivel but looking at the way everything’s going so disappointingly for you at the moment we should cut you some slack.
