Hi

Just watched Portugal struggle through against Morocco to win 1-0 ( Scorer Ronaldo with a brave header).

Good physical game with Morocco's attacking game unable to get that important goal.

Portugal just did enough and played much of the game at half pace.
Very professional performance which we have come to expect from the Euro Champions.

Morocco unfortunately go out of the competition at this early stage.

Hi Steve

I agree with all your comments about the England game.

How Tunisia got away with their sneaky foul tactics I don't know.
Apparently the ref used VAR but he mustn't have had it switched on!!!

I think even when England eventually got round Tunisias's penalty area they just used short passes and tried to walk the ball into the net.

They may have enough to beat Panama but if they do get through they will need to improve. How about Vardy,Rashford and Kane as the strike force ???

My man of the Match was Jordan Henderson.   

Cheers Mike

PS just seen that Japan beat ten mn Colombia.....getting interesting.

The ref was terrible, and, but for that last goal, there would be ructions today. Several of the Tunisians were play-acting cheats and they got away with it almost entirely. Apart from the great start and the period after Rashford and Loftus-Cheek came on (way too late), England were very uninspiring. Every time Stones got the ball in deep midfield the game almost ground to a halt as he sat on the ball looking around indecisively, allowing Tunisia to regroup. Time and time again that happened in the second half and he wasn't the only one. Swift passing and running, scaring the opposition with pace, are the way to intimidate inferior teams. That's how we got 'em in the end but we'll need more than a few minutes of that per match if we wish to survive against the big boys. I think our turning point will come, one way or the other, in the Belgium game. If we sit back and throw it because "we've qualified anyway" the main contenders will see us as easy meat and our confidence will be shot.

Hi

Just watched England beat Tunisia. After a great start where we could and should have scored 3 or four goals, we lost our way a little and a soft decision gave Tunisia a penalty to put them level.

We kept at it and towards the end we got the winner which we deserved.

Harry Kane scored both goals but rest of the he was being wrestled to the ground by one of their "heavies".

to our credit we tried to play attacking football to the end, despite Tunisia parking the bus.

So onward and upward,

Cheers Mike

Hi

Just watched France v Australia.

Poor slow game. France the supposed favourites were held in check by a stron Aussie defence and an occasional foray into the French penalty area.

France looked tired and clumsy with many misplaced passes.

Some controversial decisions. France were awarded a penalty which was disputed. So they introduced the VAR service from which the Referee awarded a goal which in my view was wrong. Soon after Var again was difficult to prove ball fully over the line. Goal again awarded.

No such problems when French defender crazily punched the ball in the penalty area.

France ran out very lucky winners 2-1. They will have to improve if they want to qualify for later rounds.

cheers

Hi Raggy

I hope you don't mind me using you thread to use for The World Cup.

I have watched parts of most of the games already played. I felt that the first three were boring to watch, with a poor standard of football.

However last night I watched Spain v Portugal. What a game !!!
A fantastic game to watch with some of the best football I have seen for a long time. Spain went behind twice and each time then they equalised. Then Spain went ahead near the end and it looked all over.....but no.....up stepped Ronaldo with a fantastic free kick to bring the game level. ( He had already scored 2 so this made a fantastic hatrick).

I think the result was a fair one even though Spain did bominate to some extent.

Seeing this game made me think that England are way behind the top sides and will do well to get through the qualifying games.

I hope I am wrong but we will see.

Cheers

Mike

Watch it again in slo-mo, Mike. It was a typical Ramos piece of cynical play. His clear intention was to take out Salah. The fact that it "happens" doesn't make it any fairer. Ramos knew that up to that point Liverpool were dominating. He knew exactly what he was doing. Hope he reflects on that in years to come when he contemplates his trophy cabinet. He's a cheat.

Hi Steve

I don't quite agree with your comments re Salah/ Ramos. Yes of course Salah was targetted. Every team picks out players that are going to be a problem.

Having said that I don't think it was a brutal tackle. There was a bit of wrestling as Salah tried to push Ramos off - they were holding each-other as they fell to th ground. Unfortunately Salah fell awkwardly with Ramos on top. He unfortunately landed on his shoulder. Sad but this happens in sport.

I can't see a connection between the Salah injury and the goalkeeper's blunders. It should have made him more determined to keep Real out.
In any case I believe it was a Clopp problem. Surely he shoud have changed the Keepers.

Salah is going to be targetted and he will need look after himself and get protection from his team.protection.

I am old enough to have seen Stanly Matthews. He took loads of stick but learned to avoid it. George best was another.( Tommy Smith ??) More recent was Paul Scoles who was targetted by Teddy Sheringham in his ( Scoles's first game. Brian Robson " had words with Sheringham He stayed away.

All part of the game.

Sergio Ramos cynically took out Salah. It was perfectly deliberate and premeditated from a man who has form. It knocked the stuffing out of Liverpool, who had dominated up to that point. Ramos knew that the only way to win was to scupper Salah, and, by doing so, he wrecked the match. Adam Lallana hasn't had much football this season so we can excuse his relative quietness on the night. The goalie made two horrible mistakes, 'tis true. When a goalie makes a mistake, it's a goal. When an outfield player makes a mistake, it's a free kick. Had Salah survived, it's pretty certain that neither of those goalkeeping errors would have happened.

Hi Raggy

No this was a very low version of Liverpool. I know that Salah was missing for most of the game. But that happens in Football. Remember Man United lost Lucaccu their leading scorer.

It does show a weakness in Liverpool's squad. Compare their sub's bench to Real's. Most of the players on their bench are all potential first team players.

Salah's replacement was Allana who ran all over the place but acheived absolutely nothing. Don't think he will have impressed Southgate.

Mohamed Salah's injury and Loris Karius' calamitous keeping will haunt Liverpool's broken dreams for years to come.
We all knew about Liverpool's weakness with goalkeepers. So Clopp certainly must have been aware of this.

It went very quiet in the pub last night - the Liverpool fans have been taking the **ss for the last few weeks.

What goes around......

Hi Steve

Twas not to be. The injury to Salah seemed to affect the whole team.

Of course the blunder by the keeper didn't help. Although Liverpool Equalised Real were superior and another goal seemed likely....and what a goal !!! Worth winning any Cup Final.

Real's midfield dominated and Liverpool visibly tired as another Bale goal was gifted by fumble fingers in goal.

The clash between Salah and Ronaldo never happened. Ronaldo was poor and did next to nothing.

For me Man of the Match for me was Marcello - all over the place both in attack and defence. but the whole of the Real midfield overcame Liverpool.

So Liverpool join Man United in the no trophies this year club.

Hi Steve

We are very close to the Euro Championship final.

I am looking forward to a great game between two fantastic attacking sides. Real Madrid are slight favourites but that will not worry Liverpool.

Having said that it should be an attacking game, I think the game will depend on the performance of the defending sides.Real has a defence that has been together and have lots of big game experience. Virgil Van Dyjk has toughened up Liverpool's defence and if he can hold them together Liverpool can cause a huge surprise.

I hope so as I will be behind Liverpool for this one.

Best of luck

Hi Steve

I don't agree with your harsh description of the game.

The bad decisions by the ref were not only against Chelsea.

The deliberate vicious back header against Jones went unpunished and several wild tackles mowing Sanchez down were completely ignored.

Chelsea had clearly targeted him. There were other fouls ignored.

The second half was all United and only desperate defending held them out.

Yes Pogba missed a sitter which would have leveled the game.

But Chelsea deserved to win as we were just not good enough on the day.

Now we await Liverpool v Real Madrid. I promise the I am not biased and will give a fair comment on how I saw the game. I am hoping Liverpool can achieve a victory.

It would've been good to see two. It was good to see all last year's promoted clubs surviving. Sadly, the PL is still an elite Top Six then the rest. Quite often this season, teams from "the rest" have shown the big boys that spirit, tactics and sheer hairy-arsed determination can trump the spoiled-brattery fed by oil or oligarch money...

I see that Cristiano is demanding pay parity with Messi otherwise he may leave Real Madrid. Half a million quid a week. I wouldn't even know what to do with one week's-worth of his salary....

My No 1 son cancelled his wedding because he realised after booking the day. Man united were playing at wembley.

Ironically they were playing Liverpool. Think it was 197 they won 2-1..

I was playing cricket some years ago and I was batting when Man U scored in a different game. I pushed the ball and started to run and as I passed my partner he stopped and was run out. He had heard someone give the score from the pavilion!!!. WE lost 3-2 to Arsenal.

Hi Steve

United finally sealed 2nd place in the Premier league. They have held this position all season, not bad for a boring team eh?

The points they have dropped are mainly to the lower teams which They should beat. Still I think this is easily solved.

Liverpool have yet to clinch a place in the top four. Sunday's games will solve this.

United and Liverpool both have important Cup Finals shortly this may affect Sunday's team selections. .......Chelsea too are in this position but they will want a top four place.

Still a lot to play for.

hi Steve

It has gone very quiet here since the Chelsea v Liverpool game!!!

The 1-0 loss for Liverpool whilst not too surprising but it could leave a period of anxiety on Merseyside especially if Chelsea win their outstanding games. I can see a situation where Liverpool finish outside the top four, unlikely but the end of season matches have turned form round and nothing is impossible.

Of course Real Madrid rightly has to be their priority and if they win their position in the premiere League will not be o problem.

Hi Steve

Well done Liverpool. Not the best football I have seen from either team. Lots of misplaced passes and some dull passages. Both teams tried to to score from break-aways. Liverpool scored an early goal which gave them some confidence. Unlucky own goal equalised. Roma's attacks were spoiled by reckless shooting giving the Liverpool goalkeeper little to do. Despite all this the game was exciting.

A second goal seemed to have decided the game but even tho Roma scored two late goals Liverpool never looked like losing.

So now it is Real Madrid. If liverpool turn up with their best game I think they can beat Ronaldo and mob. Hope so....we need to have an English team to win.

Hi

I went to Old Trafford yesterday. Went to see Wengers' Goodbye .

He picked a weakened team which lowered the game. Even so United did not dictate as we all thought they would. They scored early on on then went to sleep. An Arsenal equaliser woke United up and they attacked a now packed Arsenal defence without looking like scoring. In injury time United clinched a game they should have won hands down.

One consolation is that they still hold the second place that they have held all year and in doing so they have now qualified for next years'
European League Championship.

Hi Dan - long time no see.

Yes Mo has been a fantastic winner for Liverpool this year. He is backed up brilliantly by Roberto Firmino who has assisted Mo.....and has scored a good many goals himself.

Actually neither of them scored against lowly Stoke City yesterday but the team had some changes and no doubt an eye on next week's Euro semifinal second leg. They are in a good spot but the have to finish it.

Good to hear from you.. Hope you are well and pulling in some big ones.

Hi Steve
I did not see the match. Visitors arrived unexpectedly, so all I know is what the papers said.

We were out in Funchal many years ago and we were walking uo near the Sports arena where there was a schools competion going on. It was very hot so we called in the ground and got some cold drinks. As the children were playing the Funchal football league football team were training. Me & my wife took some great pictures of the children and one or two of the Footballers.I had taken some videos. Some years after we were sorting out a huge pile of pictures and lo and behold on my videos there was a familiar face ( not then) of Christiano Ronaldo training.

Of course I saw him play for Man United many times after this.

Small World eh ??

We did go to Madeira a few times after this but never saw him again.

On one of our walks way off the beaten track on a levada we came across a Manchester United supporters club.

We were made VERY Welcome !!!

Cheers   Mike
