Pickford is a bit of a chest beating lionheart

Is it a case of Hart where its to mask the fact he's shite

I don't like keepers like that in big games or at big tournaments, it's because they're full of nerves, and that means there's a strong chance they'll fuck up

It wasn't the worst England performance ever tbf, their movement was good, Kane's goal was a nice finish. There was that sense that no one wanted to get injured though.

The usual manic support and expectation from the press and fans has calmed a lot for this WC , it feels different.....

watch that change as we have a nice set of results in the rest of the warm-ups and then, likely, beat Tunisia.

Aye nothing like a few decents results in meaningless friendlies to build some unfounded optimism

You English always get battered by others for being too arrogant, i'm just pointing out it seems a lot less gobby this time around.... Jeez, it was a compliment. :))

I didn't mean you specifically Laz :)) I think your assessment of the game is fair tbf. And yeah there's been no 6 months of over the top hype - thank fuck. But in the last couple if weeks I've noticed some unjustified expectation creeping in in the press again. We just can't help ourselves. But it seems like they've already picked the bad guy. Sterling has been getting a lot of grief. He's our most likely match winner n all.

First half was good, but then they matched our formation and maybe tried a bit harder and we had no answer.

That was a terrific shot Rashford put past a good keeper -- power but also finesse. We should use him much more this season.
