    Brazil will win it. I’d love Argentina to win it though to see messi go out on a high.

    I think they have far more about them then the US. They have greater technical players than the US, but not their athleticism. In this heat fitness and energy around the park is reaping dividends!

    It's actually because Roberto Martinez is the manager

    KO stages are a different beast to group games. It becomes more cautious and chess-like. The Dutch can play a controlled game. England on the other hand are basket cases without the knowledge they can have another go at redeeming themselves with...

    The Dutch strength is built on their defence, but attacking wise they lack creativity. They’ll however always be in games due to their defence, but lack firepower to be considered one of the favourites.

    Yeah, he steered them to the WC...just about. If you were a club owner you wouldn't go near him though. The feller looks like he wants to oversee a mates team rather than act decisively and make tough decisions. When the post mortem of the...

    Great point allied to the heat. It was like playing with 9 men. One look at the American team, what they lacked in football ability, they made up for it with energy and athleticism around the park. Sadly that is the way of the modern game now...

    Wish he’d showed the same composure in front of goal in the derbies

    Oh for the days of Gerald Sinstadt, Hugh Jones Barry Davies and David Coleman. Not one decent commentator on the box nowadays.

    I think you’re bang on the money with regards to Bale, said the same thing to a Welsh mate after the first game. Bale offered nothing. Brennan would have been a better bet not just in this tournament, but also looking ahead to the future. But...

    Deepest sympathies to you, your family and all your dad's friends. RIP💙

    I think it was a case of a tournament too far for Wales. The likes of Bale, Ramsay and Allen are finished at international level. I think you’d have seen a different Wales if they’d qualified for the 2018 tournament. As for England, bigger tests...

    Yes, it is an incredibly conservative pastime but a day out on the ale at the Cricket is one of life's greatest pleasures And, there's no fighting because they're all Tarquins and not Rugby League supporters

    Everton fans - we should stop wasting money on experienced players and go for youth with potential. Also Everton fans - why are we wasting money on young players with potential Everton fans - our midfield is rubbish, we need to sign someone...

    Laughable fan base, having a go at onana playing for a manager who can't get a tune out de brunye. No wonder players lose heart at confidence at this club, we are toxic
