    Hopefully we can get a result against France.
    I do however expect that they will beat us.
    Will overall be a good tournament if we lose.

    I’ve woke up with some hope for Saturday, I think we can do it. We’re gonna need to take our chances though cus France will score.

    I think he will go 3 at the back, but I worry that either:

    Drop a midfielder and we get overrun in midfield for large parts of the game, similar to EURO 2020 final.

    Drop an attacker and we lose the firepower that has been great in the last few games.

    Big decisions required!

    I’ve thought about this and I’ve decided I think it’s highly unlikely Gareth will make such a big change. You know what he’s like, he’ll stick with the 433 I think, I just can’t see him moving away from the 4 at the back we’ve played all tournament.

    Playing France so it's just going to be back to the defensive mentality, play to not lose and try grab a goal.
    Just going to be boring from us until France finally score then we will change to grab a goal.

    ...I think this tops it.
    This is the worst take in history.

    Think the authenticity of these Juve wiretaps can now be put into question.
    Just for larks, I imagine, a few wiretaps relating to players in the transfer window from November/December 2019 have been published.
    Here are some highlights:

    Demiral to Milan.
    De Sciglio-Danny Rose swap for 20 million.
    Emre Can-Paredes swap for 60 million.
    Chelsea interest in Bernardeschi ( @hoban95 ).
    And from later on, McKennie-Donny van de Beek swap for 50 million.

    These are even more improbable than the usual transfer rumours. :D

    So this is coming from José Félix Díaz, who isn’t particularly reliable.

    And Romano also tweeted that the deal is not done.

    I think 433 again, let Rice & Hendo set Jude free. I think Rice/Hendo main role will be for one of them to drop in and help double up on Mbappe

    Be hard enough for Walker 1v1 despite his recover pace, need that cover!

    I think it’s a finely balanced tie that we can win, but at the same time there is nothing wrong losing to a France team that is this good

    Ronaldo would fit in well in SA, they arent big on consent either.

    Just to be clear I’d never trash Hendo, he’s the boy. Offers so much to the team that you don’t realise, leadership etc.

    But yeah, generally speaking I had texts from most of my pals about the game saying how Hendo is crap and shouldn’t be in. He’s so good in a proper 3.

    He just adds a lot to the team dynamic, I think having a player who has won it all and as a captain he can push players on.

    Can see Jude & Hendo have a good bond, proper clutch players!

    And the players know that too! PFA Award speaks for itself.

    Yeah definitely, as a Dortmund and Liverpool fan is much rather he go there than Madrid! 😂
