    Im from sweden and we are huge overachievers. But player for player england are easily better than sweden. Its a game they just have to win. This is like Arsenal beating Swansea and people say huge win for Arsenal

    i saw today that medicine places are being offered in clearing at like 5-6 universities.

    a few years ago that'd be unheard of.

    like you still need the same grades to be accepted and do an interview and everything, but there still being spaces on courses that are that competitive is crazy.

    The NHS is going down the shitter.

    'You can't win trophies unless you've got midfielders who can keep the ball': Souness launches withering attack on Lingard, Alli and Southgate after England defeat
    [​IMG]
    Graeme Souness has delivered a damning verdict on Jesse Lingard and Dele Alli while also taking a swipe at Gareth Southgate's tactics following England's loss to Croatia. The Three Lions' World Cup journey ended on Wednesday night after Mario Mandzukic completed an astonishing comeback in extra time to secure a 2-1 win for Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium.

    'He is the kind of winger that is different to the others': Mourinho lauds Manchester United target Perisic
    [​IMG]
    Speaking in his role as a World Cup pundit for RT, the Red Devils boss outlined the specific attributes that made Inter Milan winger Perisic such a key transfer target last summer.

    England stars have been wearing special socks during World Cup - and the FA are happy to pay tens of thousands of pounds in fines to keep them on their feet
    [​IMG]
    The Football Association were fined £53,000 by FIFA following the quarter-final with Sweden after at least three players have all been wearing the British-made brand during the enthralling tournament. Dier, whose name is displayed on the Trusox website as one of the players using their product, Dele Alli and Raheem Sterling have all sported the socks in Russia.

    By the way, are English folks looking forward to the match with Belgium?

    I mean, not all is lost, 3rd place in the WC is definetly not a small feat. When we were 3rd in '98 we partied for days! Were much smaller country with lesser expectations though so i guess its normal if england isnt that excited about being 3rd, but still... Its not over!

    Welcome to the thread good sir. Manchester United fans according to an anonymous survey conducted by Forest Echo News and verified by the denizens of the thread are the best supporters itt, in terms of knowledge of the game as well as good looks. Please try to continue to adhere to our standard.

    Important series of questions first

    Who is your favorite MU player (current)
    Do Mourinhos defensive strategies enthuse you?
    Will Martial FC become liquidated in the near future?
    Cardiff or Swansea?
    Favorite TV shows?

    No, and frankly, I’ve always felt it was a pointless game. No-one really wants to be involved, they all want to get home and rest. Just drags the time spent away on for another 5 days or so.
