Me too, I thought they did very well. Funny to think Southgate only got the job
due to BFS being a greedy ####er but it has been a happy accident. This group of players is still learning and will get better, they have already shown their mettle in overcoming negative and dirty tactics and also gone toe-to-toe with two very good sides in Sweden and Croatia, beating one comfortably and just coming up short in the other. Of course some mistakes have been made and it was a great opportunity to at least reach a World Cup Final but that's football.
Big thing for me is that they are enjoyable to watch for the first time in about 20 years!
A team without stars exceeded expectations, made the best of set pieces (I wish Everton did the same) and we have a manager who seems grounded and sensible (Don't forget it could have been Allardyce)and with a high level of competence.
Use reverse psychology!
That sounds too complicated!
Don't use it, then.
OK, I'll do it!
