Being it on! Can't wait!
2-1 win it's coming home!!
2-2, Stones and Kane. Win 6-5 on penalties.
Croatia 3 England 1
Too close to call. Best to have all your lucky charms close by during the game. Acquire some Karma....
Pay your parking ticket.....donate to charity...invite your mother-in-law for a couple weeks,(yes,yes, I know, but it’s for England,man).....and, now , this ones gonna be tough but buy a round or two for a Villa fan.
Ok...I’m leaving now.
I'm too scared to have a crack at predicting in case I jynx it.
I just read we are playing in our all white kit against Croatia’s all black away kit. We’ve had to change our shorts so not to clash with theirs.
But here’s the thing I don’t get - when Croatia played Russia last night in the same all black, the ref also wore black shorts and socks. Surely that would cause more confusion for players? FIFA are a proper bunch of idiots sometimes.
Too close to call ... but we are more than capable of beating them. Come on England!
Won't make a prediction to avoid the jinx but seen nothing at all to fear from them.
Plus they've got two matches that have gone full distance in their legs. Could be a massive factor.
Eng 3 - Croatia 1
2-0 England, Croatia look good on paper but are terrible.
4 1 england come on !!!!
I think we need to win this one
Can't go on a prediction thread and not predict
1-1, lose on penalties.
Post that needs more love.
Nervy 2-1 England win
I think this is going to be full on. I also think Sterling might get one. I also had a dream that Sterling scored the winner that won us the WC:
England 3 - 2 Croatia
Win 1-0, Kane to score
My heart says a 2-0 win to us,
My head says a 2-1 win....
3-2 England. Croatia havecbetter finishers than Sweden who had their chances. Croatia will score can see England getting a penalty again and 2 more set piece goals. Bring it on. C'monnnnnnnnnn it's coming home.
1-0 to England, with us hanging on a bit towards the end!!
2-1 to Croatia.
Croatia’s midfield are gonna dominate.
3-1 Sterling hat-rick. Glasgow goes into an official period of morning.
Head says we lose, heart says we win.
Got to make Vida commit. He's the weak link in the defense. Very rash, shows his hamd early. Sterling could give him nightmares if he's going to run at him.
France are clear favourites to beat Belgium in 90 mins with the bookies. England are marginal favourites to win in 90 mins. I'm surprised at both. I think Belgium and Croatia should be marginal favourites. Hoping for and England win of course.
1 - 1 penalties and then......
When I looked this morning on bet365 England were 5/4 and Croatia 12/5. Thats not marginal . Id say based on that England are firm favourites.
Either way you look at it I was expecting Belgium to be slight favourites and croatia v england about even. I think there's value in a belgium croatia win double but I don't want to take the bet as I don't want to watch the match not minding if croatia win.
It’s good when heart and head are one....
Lose 0-2. Still hope we sneak it though
England 2 - 1 Croatia aet
Lots of debate over Raheem Sterling and his value to the national side with many ex pros coming down on the side of hit rather than miss. I confess to not liking him as a player because he frustrates the hell out of me when playing for the national side. I think he lacks composure in the final third which undermines any good play that might proceed it. He fails to pick out the correct pass, correct weight of pass and fails to steady himself when in shooting positions.
I also think he lacks the required concentration levels which sees him running into offside or poor field positions which leads to England losing key possession in the final third of the pitch.
At club level Pep simplifies his game by having him running into separate zones to his team mates making his decision making easier. At national level along with Lingard there is a tendency for both of them to run into the same zones creating a clutter. So for me its no thanks on Sterling, I like cool and calm under pressure situations.
Now watch the lad perform against Croatia.
Think we'll give a good account of ourselves. It would be great to get to the final.....
Can certainly beat Crotia...
I think It's gonna be messy whatever happens. Both sets of players can taste it now.
Clearly we've got to somehow counter the threat of Mssrs Modric, Rakitic and Mandzukic ( amongst others)therefore I suggest we select:
Heroic. Epic. Bionic
Magic. Iconic. Tactic. Hectic. Poetic
On the bench we can keep the likes of Basic, Relic, Stoic and Static but maybe look to
call upon appropriate subs such as Manic, Frantic, Panic and Shambolic according to progress.
And the Fans. I predict a riot win or lose..
It's the only prediction I'm able to make. Pavlovian response.
