I think it made sense 5 nil up at half time,in 30 degrees heat ,they won't lose the game so make some changes and see the game out,well played I say.
I thought Columbia were how Brazil are expected to play,very good,glad Poland are out,clueless.

As you say, Poland were absolutely abysmal over the two games. On that showing it looks like it will be Colombia and Japan going through.

Only england fans could look for negatives after a 6-1 win  ???  ???

Buzzing to get over there now on Wednesday

The negativity never ceases to amaze me.

Have a great time in Kaliningrad (or Königsberg if you're a traditionalist)! I've only been there the once (briefly) and it was quite a long time ago (just after it was opened up), so I would be intrigued to hear what it is like now. It has a fascinating past and played an important role in European history thanks to Kant (you can visit his grave). Sadly, it was completely flattened in the war but it is still an interesting place with friendly locals. The amber museum is well worth a visit if you get the chance. Look out as well for the architectural monstrosity that is the 'Palace of the Soviets', built on the site of what was a magnificent castle (reduced to a husk by the RAF, it survived the devastating Red Army siege only to be criminally blown up on Brezhnev's orders). It is rather amusingly known as 'месть пруссаков' ('Revenge of the Prussians') and is impressively hideous even by Soviet standards.

Really can't get exercised about it if I'm honest. Seems completely harmless - they're not forcing their beliefs on anyone else.

No, we don't play until Monday. ;)

Are you Flemish or Walloon?  ;)

It’s weird how some clubs jog the memory. The first thing that came to mind was one of the my early visits to the Hawthorns. It was the last game of the season, Luton had been promoted, but my endearing memory was a hell of fight outside the the Halfords. It was a nasty situation. Can anyone else remember this?

Vaguely remember the game (draw, think our goal was a penalty?) but don't remember the fight. It was a bitterly disappointing season overall, though we did manage a memorable double over Witton.

Umtiti obviously felt sorry for Australia.

That would seem the only explanation  :o

Went to it such a long time after the incident too. Ridiculous.

Think it was the wrong decision too. Very harsh. At least justice of sorts has now been served. 1-1.

That'll do. Expect they'll bring a decent following.

Скатертью дорога! Fine player on his day but one who let himself down very badly last season. For what? A move to the footballing behemoth that is Leicester City. Good to get him off the wage bill. Off you slither now Jonny.

Was it Rangers or Celtic who sort of destroyed Birmingham city centre many years ago before a friendly at I think seal park?

As others have said it was Rangers. A couple of my cousins came down from Glasgow and we went together. I remember being hit by the stench of alcohol from well outside the ground. The match had to be abandoned a few minutes into the second half. Mayhem.

Nice to see the Coventry fans giving Big Cyrille a round of applause in the ninth minute. Hope they go up.

Boro have been pathetic over the two legs and don't deserve a thing but how the hell was that not a sending off. Ah well, hopefully we'll get to see them crying at Wembley. Come on Fulham!

Boro have not got a clue in possession

They've been beyond woeful. How on Earth did they come 5th?  :o

Hope Boro fail to make it for the good of football in this country.  You can win the odd game playing Pulisbal, but the more successful he gets, the more other managers may be tempted to play his kind of tactics. That has to be a bad thing.
Bit of a shame if it means Villa being promoted, mainly as we'll miss out on another couple of local derbies, with the extra buzz about the place and the extra revenue they bring in.

But if Boro don't go up we'll already have two guaranteed defeats before a ball has been kicked. Maybe 4 if the Stoke curse has been reimposed post-Pulis...

That could scupper things royally if it's a factor. However, unless Dean expects to be managing Arsenal, Spurs or West Ham anytime soon, he has to be prepared to move if he wants to further his career. It comes with the territory of being a player, manager or coach although I do appreciate that it makes life more difficult for kids.

You can very easily commute from London to Birmingham and vice versa these days. I work down there 3-4 days a week. Shouldn't be an issue.

Condolences to his family. Fantastic player with the heart of a lion. Thank you for the memories Graham. RIP

 It was great to see the passion back after several years of relative stupor. That was the best goal celebration for ages and a couple of those roars were reminiscent of the 60s! The Hawthorns is still a special place on its day. Boing Boing and thank you Big Dave.

Superb scenes from Parkhead.

Seven in a row, which is seven more than Sevco have ever won.

HH!

Our time will come again.
