If rumours are to be believed an Sterling is dropped I think it's good news for England, shows that Southgate could see he was rubbish v Tunisia and also has the balls to drop him. I think things might be different for England this tournament, in previous years egos were all trying to be managed, they had a wealth of talent but managers invariably went for big name players played slightly out of position rather than play a lesser light in his strongest position.

Early days obviously but they've a decent chance of success, semis at least likely imo. Their Achilles heel is the defence, Walker, Stones & Maguire are all potential bombscares. Think they'll be a much better team without Sterling (or if he's played it should be as a winger).

Sterling is a good athlete but isnít a footballer. England are an average side who are well managed at the moment. They can bully weak teams with their athleticism, pace and baility to press but when they come up against any decent technical team theyíll be found out.

Sterling is pretty clearly a better footballer than the likes of Rashford or Vardy. Itís hard to stand out in such an average outfit as Englandís current team.

Still not convinced by Brazil. The tournament is still wide open. Engerlund could bring it home.
Have that feeling myself so much so that I stuck a few quid on them. Although the small stake would never be enough to ease the pain of having to listen to them!

I can easily see them making the semis.

Youíve been watching a different tournament to me if you think England have much of a chance. Itís not rare for the good teams to start slowly in these competitions. The same five or six will still be in the QFs when all is said and done.

The difference between the relish Ronaldo takes from being the guy for his national team and the sheer weight that looks to be on Messiís shoulders when playing for Argentina is what separates the two greats of the modern game. And I think the question of which one is the greatest is starting to answer itself.

And he still couldn't make the Germany squad?

Good but inconsistent.

Klopp decided to freeze him out when he knew he was leaving. Thereís too many options in Germany they donít need to pick players who arenít match fit, Neuer being the exception. Ffs, they didnít pick Sane, the reigning EPL YPotY either.

Can was injured for the last two or three months of the season. Liverpool were down to a skeleton crew the last month, especially in midfield. He would absolutely have played, if he had been available. Can and Lallana both came on in the Champions League Final when only half fit. Klopp had been playing him consistently up until he got hurt.

Can came on with minutes left. Hardly a show of faith in him. Itís somewhat natural that heíd be frozen out for other players who will be there next season, J70. But in the end Can is a better player than Henderson or AOC/Lalana so Liverpool made a balls of the Can situation.

Some performance by the spoofer.

VAR delivered big time there. Costa Rica would have been eliminated on a wrong call in any other WC.

Inform me please? i was asking a question!

Wouldíve thought thereíd be loads after him but only ever heard Juveís name mentioned and thatís going back a good 9 months

He had the privilege of having his pick because every halfways big club would be willing to overpay him on wages because he was available on a free. It doesnít mean he would be interested in them, though. So it ended up being about which big club could offer him the role he wanted, which is exactly what the article above says. Juve obviously did the leg work six plus months ago to get him as good as tied up as you could in the circumstances.

He is getting over 200 gran a week with Juventus.  It was all about the money!

Ä16m signing on fee, paid over two years

I would expect to see alot more players letting contract run down now seeing them numbers.  His agent played a blinder getting that kind of money.  Was there any other club even interested?

Was there any club not interested in a German international midfielder entering his prime available on a free? :o

I was very happy FOD wasnít yer manager, Sligoian. Working with a young inexperienced panel is his bread and butter and would have probably made Sligo likely to upset one of the top three in the province in the next few years.

Amazing how confederate flags and bible-thumping evangelical nutcases with huge signs are allowed at GAA matches, but Palestinian flags aren't.

That's harsh. Poor auld John 3:7 is a sound lad.

I saw a few Palestinian flags in the Gaelic Grounds for the Limerick - Tipp Match, and again in Cork for the Cork Limerick game and I don't think anyone was removed, so I'm not sure if a directive came out specifically for the Tyrone Meath game because those flags are more prevalent in some Ulster games.

Iíve heard a lot of stories about John 3:7 being a bit of a thoughtless twat with his antics actually, AZ. I can only imagine being stuck behind him at a match.

Russia haven't exactly beat 2 superpowers of world football.

That's not remotely the issue . . . they've run further than any other team in the competition by a good way and as Dinny says they probability is that other teams are juicing as well. Not that the World Cup needs to be any more farcical but this adds to it!

The WC is farcical now? Righto, Sarg.
