England v Nigeria

Postby Puff Daddy on Sat Jun 02, 2018 5:07 pm

This has the makings of a pretty decent game. I'm a little bit surprised at the Nigeria team, their manager has started Ighallo over Iheanatcho and no place for Ndidi of Leicester City, although they are both on the bench and will probably get on at some stage. Still plenty of talent in that Nigeria team though. Keep a special look out for Ogenyi Onazi, an attacking midfielder on right for them . He's good, very, very good. Watch him have a mare now :D

it might be a hideous shirt but watch Sulli change ours to a claret version, If they sell as well as reported Sulli will want part of that.

If one of their crowd tell's you that he's a rich king back home but needs your bank details & you'll also become very rich...
Just saying...

Glenn Hoddle. Glenn ****ing Hoddle.

Dele Ali or Harry Kane could knife an opponent to death on that pitch and it would be “a terrific stabbing motion”

Don't really care about the quality of the opposition, good to see an England team that have clearly been told to play at a fast tempo and look to move the ball forward rather than just aimlessly keeping it until they have to hit a long pass.

Does Hoddle get a bung off Levy when he’s commentating England games, for talking up their players? I genuinely fail to see what other reason he could have for his endless gushing praise for every 5 yard run and pass one of them does.

They've got Martin Tyler and Clive Allen commentating on the International feed - there's some Fox Sports streams around.

Decent first half. Makes me think of the Eriksson years when we’d have 14 substitutes in the second half, learning f*** all in the process.

The curse of the commentator. Clive Tyddlesley says, England haven't conceded a goal in open play in over 11 and a half hours of football now and not 10 seconds later, wham Nigeria score

He's fast, good at taking people on, however his final pass and often finishing is awful.

Sterling could be an incredible player, like one of the best players in the world he’s that good. But there is something there, maybe his attitude, that pulls him back from reaching it. He gets into so many good positions he could have 3 goals every game. Someone needs to let him know just how good he can really be and cut out his stupid diving.

Vardy would bury half the chances Sterling misses.

More than half, Sterling misses some incredible chances…is it his concentration? He is "gifted" but his football intelligence seems limited.
