    The reason for that Rob was we did use all four substitutes

    Dier, Rose, Rashford and Vardy all came on, the Trippier was injured

            Cheering for Croatia? Really????

              we can hold our heads up, played well for most of the tournament, but never look like scoring from open play, thank god for set pieces
              i think the lack of a couple of old heads to steady the youngsters didn't help.

                I said two weeks ago on here (#63) that I was concerned about our lack of goals from open play and so it's proved. We should have been out of sight in the first half and it cost us. Still, can't be too upset, things are looking a lot brighter for English football than they have for a long long time especially with all the younger teams doing so well. Everyone would've settled for a semi final place at the start of the tournament. Oh well onwards and upwards as they say.

                  The team did us proud! Yes we should have been ahead by more than one at half time- but that’s football- we reached the semi final of the world cup for gods sake! The world cup!! ⚽️

                    We blew that last night, it was obvious the middle was being dominated by the Croats and that's where you win games, he should have flooded the middle of the park and stopped them playing.
                    Without Manzukic and the other fella who looks like a skeleton with a pulse (can't remember his name) they cannot function as an effective force.

                    • That's a cop out!!..Yes we would have settled for a semi final place at the beginning..at that stage our route wasn't planned out..we had the easiest route in the history of the world cup and blew it..end of

                          • The worst thing about last night was giving that little Genius Modric acres of space,he ran the show after half time and that was our downfall along with facing a hugely under rated Croatia,there a top side.

                            • To me we have done well but we should have rung the changes last night and brought in a few changes. For example Cahill this is a very inexperienced side and to have him guiding the back line would have helped also Deli hasn't done enough despite all the hype. Also remember what Loftus Cheek provided when he was brought on in an earlier game just wonder if the old adage if it ain't bust has backfired has cost us

                              • Last 2 posts are bang on...Modric is a good player...that's why he's at Real Madrid..and Croatia are a good team, but after their previous two games they were a good knackered team and we failed to capitalise massively..whilst we were passing it back, they were taking a rest!..I'm no manager but I can't believe I'm the only one seeing it...guaranteed the french will have them running around and fire the ball up to Mbappé as often as possible...somehow think it's gonna be the most one sided final and pretty boring too.
