Although not a great game, I'm actually quite enthused about England now trying to play an expansive type of football, utilising the knowledge and experience of the young lads who are playing that way, such as the City and Spurs lads.

Saying that, when we get to Russia it will be about bringing the majority of Rag and Dipper players back by order of the sponsors.
In the words of my Old Man, "Life will never be the same without Man City, so get it in while you can".

I'd love to be over in Copenhagen now.

I believe the atmosphere in the pubs is electric. Hopefully we get something from tonight's game.

Something could get pretty rotten in the state of Swampland. . . it could just turn out even better than a particularly gory episode of "I, Claudius".
The only thing more entertaining will be our football..

'Who is Angus Gunn?'

Barely a mention of City. If you just skimmed through it you would be forgiven for assuming he had been a Norwich player for ages

Considering he's only played professional games for Norwich so far I can see why they wouldn't mention us much!

But I bet if it was a rag player out on loan doing well, it would be plastered all over the article

An opportunity missed for an article about how we're ruining English football by stockpiling allows the talent but keep signing expensive mercenaries in front of them. I expected better

Probably, but thankfully its not and we are not rags! Norwich deserve the praise as they are the ones playing him .... we will, in time I'm sure

Just watching Ivory Coast v Morocco on a dreadful pitch. What passes for grass in west africa seems really to be some kind of junior jungle.

Elephants just gone two down, appalling defending - Kolo on the touchline looks in pieces. Looks like they are out of the world cup for the first time in 20 years. Nigeria, Egypt, Senegal, Tunisia already qualified I think.

Very passionate singing of the respective national anthems by players and fans alike. Love to see that.

Sorry to all our Irish posters but the World Cup would be better with Denmark in it rather than Ireland. They are awful
