    Did us proud overall, but you have to take your chances when you're on top.

    Agreed Fitzy. We fell short but plenty to be optimistic about.

    It would have been a big ask to win the world cup with corners and free kicks. Add some creativity to that squad and they'll be a force.

    I think it will come with time. We can move on to the next tournament with pretty much the same squad for me. I think much of our lack of creativity is poor decision making or taking that one extra touch, you can see what they're trying to do and other world class players can read it in a split second. And hopefully experience will address that. These are good times for the national team.

    I think Southgate has been top notch. We probably could have done with one older head in there at holding midfield.
    I'm sure I know another team that need the same. I'd lose Bradshaw if we could bring in a class holding midfielder / playmaker.
    I think this Adeboyejo has to be worth a try.

    personally i think this was our chance and we bottled it, i always said i'd never see an england side in wc final and don't think i ever will now,
    but hats off to the guys, they've done us proud this time, gutted but we over achieved
