Did I just see an England team play good, entertaining, attacking football against Germany in a game that they didn't lose; didn't go into penalty shoot outs [well, it wasn't going to anyway] with a manager who doesn't dye his hair [apologies to the German manager if he doesn't but he certainly looks as though he does wink] and, to top it all, they have a player called Loftus Cheek. I think the glory days may be back...

I think it might come down to the fact that both the under 21's and the under 17's both won their versions of the World Cup. At present we seem to have plenty of really good, talented youngsters. I wonder if some of them were chosen for the squad who played against Gernany.

I think they were because some of the 'proper' players are injured. And, as far as I know, Germany played a full, proper team. We were excellent!

Gives those of us who were around in 1966 some hope!!

And, 'our' team won last week!!

It wasn't a complete German team but one comment was telling - whilst English Premier League players were pulling out of the squad, but no doubt will be fit for their clubs next week, there were seven Premier League players selected in the German and Brazilian (who England play on Tuesday) squads but NONE of them pulled out!

Say it quietly now ... Yes, there just might possibly, may, perhaps, never-say-never- (almost can't stand it) be (some) hope ...

And yes, getting soooooo fed up with the preening premier brigade that don't seem to have any sense of pride about playing for their country and/or their managers who won't risk then getting injured ... (Harry Kane I see as exempt as he has been carrying a hamstring strain and he IS notably proud to play for England) (*COYS!!!!*)

England is a good team for football. And as far as I know they have won 2 more FIFA World Cup as well.

Hi all - this old thread seems to have become a bit of a magnet for dodgy spammers so we're closing it now.
