    Haggis. 1954-2018

    Cracking guy, and a credit to local sport.

    World Cup 2018

    In reality, both finalists have been involved in one good game each, France v. Argentina in The Round of 16 and Croatia v. England. Hope you enjoy it, Phil, but from a neutral point of view I think both sides will be very cautious, so it won’t be much of a spectacle. There is one world class player on show, Modric, Mbappe is nowhere near that yet. 1 0 to France.

    Both teams deserve immense credit for that magnificent effort, gave their all for their countries. In pure football terms, Modric ran that game, a brilliant footballer. Well done England for getting so near.

    Pele won 3 world cups, the first as a 17 year old. It would probably have been 4 had he not had a hatchet job done on him in 1966. No player has ever been as good as him, nor is ever likely to be.

    How depressing to see some of the idiot England fans smashing up an Ikea store, jumping up and down on cars and generally causing drunken havoc in towns up and down the country. Why can’t they just celebrate like normal people do instead of tarnishing the image English football fans? Probably the same types who invade pitches at the end of a season.

    Come on Uruguay, Latin America needs you.

    Whichever team get to the WC final from this side of the draw will be the worst ever team to reach that lofty position. Every team that was in the other half of the draw, including those that lost, is better than any of those in ours.

    Neymar does make a meal of things but he faces constant fouling, like most of his predecessors for Brazil.

    England have the easiest route to the final of all time.

    Colombia’s best player, Rodriguez aka James, might well not be playing v. England. Off early in first half today. He was brilliant v. Poland.

    Brilliantly summed up.

    Three cracking games today, very good World Cup so far.

    Mexico’s fans are fantastic, reminds me of the Rovers on tour last season.

    The Beautiful Game. That was a brilliant football match. No other sport comes near it.

    I think Morocco was probably too big a risk from a security point of view, too many jihadis in N. Africa.
