  1. I'm surprised about Zola coming in with Sarri yet bizarrely think the relationship between the two will work well for Chelsea.

    I'm a little surprised the Croatians get through three consecutive knockout matches with extra time. My father reckons it's due to them being mountain people, I'm wondering instead if it's not due to some special supplement.

    Don't worry Jane, I have been called a lot of unpleasant things before so am not offended, life is too short.

    A thing about Harry Kane, I recall a stat that he is poor in August or at least does not score. He was born on 28th July in the Astro sign of Leo. Leo runs to late August. Leo's are normally good performers yet with Harry Kane that appears to not be the case in August. Now if this form also extends to July he might not be the best leader for England. I know about astrology as I have had a lot of health issues without a correct diagnosis so investigated a lot of thing including astrology. When I found out my rising and moon signs and where the planets were a lot of things started to fall into place Southgate did ok, unlike the media he seemed to keep the players level headed. I thought he could have made better use of substitutes yesterday yet also thought Lovren was lucky to stay on the pitch. He should have picked up at least two, possibly three cards.

    I would say play all the players that have not played that want to and then the others.

    Kane was poor tonight, off the pace. I also though RLC might have done a job for us instead of either Alli or Lingard in the 2nd half or ET. Out of the group stages we rarely created a chance in open play the attacking players of HK, RS, JL, DL just never really connected in front of goal, like they were strangers.

    My fears too.

    That's unfortunate though at least it has happened pre-season so the club(s) can sign another player.

    Deschamps was tactically very astute yesterday, two banks of four in front of Belgium's attackers and Griezmann helping out in midfield too. Every Belgium forward appeared to have two man to get past and only Hazard could do this. Belgium were missing their only wide back Meunier through suspension. For me, Hazard and Courtois leave with their reputations enhanced.

    Fascinating match in prospect to night. I see France as the victors think they will just have too much for Belgium and a stronger midfield to minimise Belgium's counter attack. Of course Hazard and De Bruyne especially are capable of sublime game changing moments so it should be a good one to watch.

    Southgate's England have been effective and tactically clever. Croatia is a step up-in opponent yet in the knockout stages twice they have needed penalties and extra-time. They have some older players though of course they are technically gifted. This is likely to be a fascinating encounter, not sure yet think we will win. Tactical point from yesterday, I was incredibly frustrated real-time by Trippier and Walker playing ping pong with the ball on the edge of the Swedish penalty area until it becomes clear the plan was not to cross towards the tall Swedish defenders yet pull them out of position or win corners.

    He did too, in that 1st half I recall he had the ball on the left side of the pitch near their penalty area with four defenders trying to close him down and he feeds it out to Young. Such a pity he is not a natural goal scorer.

    I get the feeling that the running of Delli Alli, Lingard and Sterling just shut down the opposition. You don't see it on TV as they don't have the ball yet it stops the opposition playing effectively.

    A fascinating game last night, Belgium were terrific in the first half containing Brazil and getting ahead. The second half was different and Brazil went at them, though with good players missing chances, Thibo on form and the ref not giving any penalties Belgium hung on. In hanging on, both Lukaku and Hazard were immense in holding up the ball to give the defence a rest. The next round should also be a cracker, Fellaini vs Pogba and Kante vs Hazard and De Bruyne are possible match ups.

    I was born in July 66, think we will beat Sweden though not sure how. I'm expecting Southgate to change personnel or tactics against the Swedes. The Swedes remind me of Burnley, not expected to win anything yet if you don't' turn up and work, you will be on the wrong end of the result.
