When did italy come from nowhere to win a world cup? 06?
Replying to @GoodbodyJeff
well 2006 they were going in to the tournament in chaos, after Calciopoli. Similarly in 1982, when they didn't win any of their first three games, and the striker had barely played for two years due to a ban. Bearzot was regularly hammered.
 
In reply to @MiguelDelaney
It wasn't meant to be taken seriously. But as it happens I was a season ticket holder at Spurs during the Mourinho period and I can guarantee you it was dull. Deadly dull. Whatever the Mourinho fan club think most Spurs fans I know weren't having it
Replying to @AJones08711409
Ah, fair! Yes, it’s not good. This just strikes me as a particular type of dull, that’s all the more striking when you have such quality in attack.
 
In reply to @MiguelDelaney
"Defensively backloaded" is long hand for dull.
Replying to @AJones08711409
It’s not. You can be dull without being defensively backloaded
 
In reply to @MiguelDelaney
Have they regressed? Or are they just playing teams of a higher level. Got very fortunate draws in both Euros and WC and Germany the only real team of note they beat
Replying to @robfbac
They lost 4-0 to Hungary and this Italy a lot weaker than 14 months ago
 
Southgate's England currently remind of Mourinho's Spurs, in that it's a team defensively backloaded towards its weaker players out of caution

It can work better in international football - but it's not working well just weeks from the World Cup

Needless to say, of course, there is absolutely no chance of an England managerial change before the World Cup

Southgate’s generous appraisal of last night raised eyebrows - but only makes sense if he was trying to keep players focused

If this was Southgate refusing to compromise, what are the alibis? What are the explanations?

It's not just the summer now.

It's a problem. England looking like they have a lot of problems at precisely the wrong time

Mancini: "England is one of the best teams in the world. They lose the game, but they have a good chance of winning the World Cup."
 
Southgate on being booed: "I understand the reaction at the end, as that's the results we've had. It's an emotional reaction."
 
Southgate: "I personally felt the performance was a step in the right direction.

But I appreciate because of the result that won't be the reaction."
 
Southgate: "Difficult of me to be too critical of the performance: more possession, more shots, more shots on target."
 
Italy themselves are proof of how it can come together out of nowhere at a World Cup - but this isn't supposed to be nowhere. It's supposed to be the culmination of a long-term project and six years in a job. Instead, it's a regression

Sounded like significant portion of England fans booing the team.
 
Southgate's use of a three-man backline means so many positions are filled so quickly by tactical necessity, so there's suddenly only two/three shirts for the best players.

Meaning a very talented squad becomes... quite boring.
 
As many pointing out, it's very 2018... but they have so much more talent than 2018

England's attacking has mostly been from set-pieces or trying to force set-pieces.

we were just saying that, and it's all the worse since they have much more talent!

You wouldn't have thought this was a European Championship final 14 months ago.
 
Big gap between Rice and Bellingham all the time, that has made life easier for Jorginho.
 
England clearly haunted by the spectre of relegation

Exciting start here as a dozen or so home fans run down to the goal to give Donnarumma abuse.
 
Italy in five minutes looking much more like the surging team who won Euro 2020, and less like the shambles of the last year. Did a hangover cost them a World Cup place?
 
Pope saves in Italy. Blessed.
 
In reply to @MiguelDelaney
They should investigate yes. Concerns over human rights and the detrimental impact of the world cup were present during WCs in Germany, South Africa, Brazil etc. Capitalism ensures there will always be a human cost to such huge events unfortunately.
Replying to @ALFLFC
sorry, but those World Cups were incomparable to Qatar, and it is wrong to put them in the same bracket.
 
The circular staircases and red girders - one of those sights in football where’s impossible not to feel a child-like joy.

In reply to @ALFLFC
But to claim x amount of people have definitely died as a result of construction just isn't true. The only people that know anything certain is Qatar. Nobody else can possibly know anything for certain. Anyway....have a good evening Mr Delaney 👍
Replying to @ALFLFC
No one claimed x amount of people. No one can because Qatar refuse to investigate - which should tell you enough. Widespread migrant worker abuse is 100% verified.
 
 
In reply to @MiguelDelaney
I would argue 'most' people are comfortable with going. The hospitality in Qatar is top class, not to mention it is one of the safest countries in the world. Your second point is yet to be verified accurately by anyone. I think the experience in Qatar will surprise sceptics.
Replying to @ALFLFC
Gay supporters are saying they are not going. And the point about “most” is about countries where it is not illegal for certain sexualities. The second point has been accurately verified by countless human rights groups!
 
In reply to @MiguelDelaney
There's an argument that football is for everyone, of all backgrounds, nationalities, cultures, religions etc. Where there is a clash in ideologies of any sort, which is inevitable wherever you go in the world, who decides which side is 'right'?
Replying to @ALFLFC
Surely we should be going with the side where more people feel comfortable going - it’s a celebration of humanity, not an exclusion of part of it. And, again, the construction of this has involved more human suffering than any World Cup in history. No tournament is worth that
 
In reply to @MiguelDelaney
Are you saying male homosexuals aren't allowed in Qatar? Because that would be false
Replying to @ALFLFC
No, I’m saying male homosexuality is illegal. And, again, that should be a non-starter. Many gay supporter groups have confirmed they are not going.
 
In reply to @MiguelDelaney
No way you can guarantee that tbh. Everyone can go to this WC.
Replying to @ALFLFC
Male homosexuality is illegal. That should be a non-starter for hosting a tournament
 
In reply to @MiguelDelaney
Gianni Infantino himself has. As I said, my main point is, how do we go about deciding where such events should be held? Who will organise the events? Who will pay for the huge costs involved? Is there a country in the world that is squeaky clean?
Replying to @ALFLFC
He said there were just three deaths and was rightfully absolutely hammered by it by everyone. It was objectively incorrect. And we organise events where we can be guaranteed there will be no human cost, and that everyone can go. You don't need squeaky clean countries for that.
 
In reply to @MiguelDelaney
FIFA themselves have also disputed the reports of 1000s of deaths. Who do we believe in this instance? Who decides what this 'Human Rights Threshold' is. My point is really about who decides what? Do we trust anyone enough to make these decisions?
Replying to @ALFLFC
so what if Fifa have disputed it (and they haven't - it's impossible to dispute because Qatar haven't conducted an investigation, which should tell you enough) - and we could involve human rights groups for a start
 
Quite an amazing story, that is surely unprecedented. Ultimately, it’s the players’ careers, and you can understand the frustration if they envisage a lifetime chance at a World Cup squandered.

They probably should have beaten England in July

In reply to @MiguelDelaney
The Qatari govt have rejected reports from Amnesty etc already. But yeah, investigations are 100% necessary. But move the WC based on reports? And to where? How do we decide which country it is morally correct to move the comp to? How do we measure this?
Replying to @ALFLFC
That they have rejected reports is.., irrelevant! And the World Cup should have a human rights threshold. It’s about the simple principle that no suffering should go into staging the World Cup. This has had a ridiculous amount. Not sure how this is arguable.

What is it that you would like to happen? What would be an ideal scenario now? Move the WC to another country? Arrests? A boycott from teams/players? An acknowledgment of deaths?
Replying to @ALFLFC
The World Cup should have been moved. Failing that, as a bare minimum, investigation into worker deaths and compensation for families. This really should not be too much to ask.

In reply to @MiguelDelaney
I understand that & appreciate your point, I guess mine is that by going there in the first place they’ve already won, that’s how I see it. I don’t see any way that this goes bad for them from a PR perspective, even if the WC matches are as poor as 2010.
But this is about more than them getting to stage it, it’s also about the historical record. It wouldn’t be journalism to let them have a free run to putting out whatever image they want
