Match Day - England v Scotland - 18/06/2021 - KO:20:00 - Group D -

There are many many teams better than us in this tournament : France, Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Spain, Holland…. Probably even Germany if it came to a one off game.
The point is we have the players to do well.
So do these other countries.

The difference is made when those players gel as a team.

We appear not to have that at present.
 
I've read your post several times and I can't understand what point your making. Could you translate it from Scottish to English ?
My point is that every England supporter I associate with arrogantly believes they should be winning this tournament and also believed they would annihilate Scotland yesterday. Not sure what you can't understand. 🤷‍♂️

I don't think any England fan thinks we're gonna win? We're extremely used to underperforming.

They thought that we'd win yesterday? Sure, we have a much stronger team and that's just logical. That's why there's mass celebrations at a 0-0 draw North of the border!

As I said earlier, maybe I associate with some very cocky people. I wish they shared your level of pessimism. That said, then I wouldn't get the pleasure of watching them make fools of themselves every couple of years.

Then I’d find a few supporters who aren’t blindingly drunk or havent taken hallucinogenic drugs
Most I know where surprised we even qualified and certainly weren’t surprised at last nights utter rubbish

It’s a bit like spot the ball
You have to be convinced your know where the ball is when you place your X and you live in hope but in reality you know it will end in disappointment 😢

Considering England were joint favourites to win the tournament with every UK bookie, I'd imagine the vast majority of those punters who backed them into those odds must indeed be blindingly drunk. 🙂

But the odds are nonsense
They are based on many parameters
One of which is the number of people betting on England
Bookies are clever😉
 
You won’t get an argument from me
It’s like the current joke
England at 10-1 to win the euros
That means s bet £20 and you lose it all
I think supporting North End has provided England fans on here with a great baseline for pessimism. Gears you up well for the inevitable disappointment. All the England fans I'm mates with are fans of other clubs. I'm sensing a correlation.

That's straightforward. I'm not one of them, though, never thought that. Talking of the Jocks, we (me anyway) don't hate them but they certainly seem to hate us. The hatred seems to be hereditary. (cue the lefties with a history lesson)
 
Glad to see people coming round to the idea that Kane might not actually be good at football. Suprising for a bloke with 0 trophies

Meanwhile, Englands best striker was forced to retire from international football early cause he couldn’t get a game.

I'm not an England hater, but I do react in accordance with the level of shit I receive. When I was at high school for example during Euro 96, I got a world of shit when England beat Scotland. It was incessant for days. It therefore drove me to form some Germanic tendencies towards the end of that tournament.

Kane isn't shit. His insane goals record at club and international level tells you that. He just plays in a shit Spurs side. I agree though that he's not in form. Looks jaded. I think if he gets a move to a City or United he will score 30-35 goals next season.

7th top scorer in Premier League history and he's still only 27.

To be fair though, you've about as much chance of winning yourselves as wee Krankie in tossing the caber.
