    I know right, its almost like believing Haaland is a good footballer, fucking Dortmund players lul.

    A lot of people really need to listen to Three Lions. Beyond the chorus I mean. Just like..listen to the first 20 seconds of it.

    Then tell me it's an arrogant song.

    There are certainly English fans that represent us badly. Singing that song though, no. That's not an arrogant song by any stretch of the imagination, but people who've never heard it seem to love giving England stick for it.

Not because of the penalty shoot, but because they forced England into it.
    Over the course of the game today Italy were the better team, can't disagree with that. We had our chances and didn't capitalise.

    Anyway folks, we told you football's coming home, we didn't say when.

    Um, yeah, Haaland is a joke. So? Lewa just broke the all-time goalscorer record, and you want to throw shade with a babyface like Haaland? He might be something in 5-10 years, if he keeps working hard. We'll see. But right now, he's just a striker doing his fucking job. You want to give him medals for scoring goals? 27 is a shite record, not really something to write home about if you're the only 9 the club uses.

    Um... dude... own it. Don't fucking justify why you sing the songs you think, god that's pathetic. Have you heard the Italian national anthem? It's brutal man, go read a translation. They're not kidding around.

    Why do people throw bad player names at me like one of them is going to stick at some point? Werner is shite and the only thing I'll say to your comment is that it's pretty telling about the quality of the league if you have a club that thinks Werner is worth spending money for. Oh my god is he bad. When Bayern didn't "get" him, everyone went "Phew, dodged a fucking bullet right there..."

    I'm owning what the song is. I bought that song, in 96. On cassette tape. In more ways than one I own it. But what I own is what the song actually says.

    A song that opens saying it's bad news for the English game. That we're not creative enough, or positive enough. That we'll go on getting bad results.

    It'll happen at some point. But if you don't hurry up and need again as much as since the last WC, some of us young lads might actually not get to witness it. So... get going.

    (I don't remember the last English EC title, it's prolly something in the 80s or whenever)

    Yes, and we'll keep calling you arrogant as long as it gets the rise out of you. Why? I don't know, why do you keep bringing up WW2 whenever you play Germany... Why do we bring Umbrellas when we play Holland? Just football things, man.

    Uh, okay... I'm not even sure what you're trying to brag about there. I'll stop responding to you now. Bye.

    It's a shit claim that's all. Like if you called the fans of a newly promoted side arrogant that won the opening game singing about how they're going to win the league. They know they won't, but wouldn't it be good if they did.

    Calling a self deprecating song arrogant is shit banter, that's what I'm saying.

    Hopefully the dead weight gets culled before the next competition. (hendo, mings) and more exciting players can be put in. Garry has got to get better at making big choices. When Kanes having one of those dead weight 2nd halfs make the big call and take him off.

    I think you mistook Xenophobia Nation bashing and Stereotyping for Football banter. I mean people just showed up or made accounts just for that

    In the last 2 weeks that's pretty much all I've seen from the majority of posters. I mean it would be a bit easier to read if it had some insight into Football, I mean that's what this thread is meant to be about but descended into nation bashing and slurs, with about 10% football talk. Most of the people switched which teams they support on a daily basis, how embarrassing. Glad I am English and I am certainly 10% more arrogant than I was a week ago.


    I guess you all can crawl back under your rock until the world cup and can start the this stuff again meanwhile there's plenty of gay rights and foreign policy threads you and your echo chamber can go continue your prejudice on in the mean time.

    Seeing as this was meant to be a football thread I actually just popped on to say congrats to Italy who were the best team in the tournament think I saw one or two actual football fans that were real Italians in the thread, have fun tonight, I'm a little jealous but proud of my team.

    All those or so nears....

    Germany should have won the match against England. Now what? Are we going to replay the tournament?
    but they didn't, just as England didn't win against Italy,.. I made that post straight after I got home after watching the match, please note the night of the match not a week or 2 after

    You know I knew this was the best response you could come up with, neverminded accountability, and you talk about my feelings jesus!

    This thread devolved into a zombie apocalypse these last few pages. Well done Italy. Well done England. Final is no mean feat.

    To any fans that indulged in violent or nasty behaviour through the tournament, regardless of nationality; fuck off.

    To any fans that indulged in racist behaviour towards their own or opposition players, regardless of nationality; fuck off.

    Congratulazioni Italia. England lost this in the second half, but that is no shame. Italy are mentality monsters and if it wasn't for Pickford, they wouldn't even have gone to extra time.

    Still probably the best of England's performances in this competition.

    Football is cruel isn't it.

    England were good in the first 30ish minutes, Italy kept the ball but couldn't get anything done, but you could see that it started to become more and more dangerous. In the second half it was just a question of when Italy will score. So this I would put on Southgate's tactics, you can't let a team like Italy have the ball this much. It was possible for teams to turle defend against Spain because they couldn't finish, but these Italian players knew where the goal was.

    Secondly I once again think England was too cautious. The first minutes of the game showed how menacing they can be, it was mostly counter attacking football but still. They should try to attack more. There were also spells when they had the ball and cause big trouble in the Italian defence after Italy's goal.

    The penalty takers I would also put on Southgate. Rashford has been "cold" the whole tournament and to know that you are going in to score just a penalty must be such a burden mentally. Sancho had some more minutes earlier in the tournament but pretty much the same situation and 2 years younger than Rashford. Saka has been really good but to have a 19 year old as the fifth man in this case is not wise. As other asked: Why not Grealish and Sterling? Only reason I can really find is that they didn't want to take one, can't really see any other reason. Sterling has been getting so much shit from the media for his life outside football so perhaps he wasn't too eager to be put in this kind of situation.

    It was nice to see Southgate rallying the team after the loss, proper character and the fans also applauded, were nice to see. Hopefully the English can enjoy this silver medal later on, it is no easy feat to get to the final!

    Oh man, the English haters are enjoying this, aren't they.

    I don't know who's who in England. Would you like to write me a guide with 45 million names detailing who's racist and who's a racist football fan? Thanks. You said they're not football fans, not I. I don't have anything any way, I don't give a shit. They're your problem, not mine.
    You're really trying to get people to hate Bayern fans instead of England fans.
