England qualify

There's something about this team that reminds me of the Gerrard Lampard era

Yeah tbf, can't knock 3-0 in a world cup quater final. The real test comes next.

I've got an opinion on the USA that nobody wants to hear, but... they're not all that for me. They're just bigger, quicker, stronger and used to playing at a higher level. But style wise they're basic.

Whereas you can see a modern high pressing attacking game coming in to the womens game like it has the mens, helped by the finances of state backed clubs like City who've brought in superior facilities, professionalism, managers and coaches which has put City & Chelsea players on a par if not ahead of the yanks now, who no longer have the monopoly. You see it in how england press and get the ball forward quickly, it's class.

If that effective style is brought in it will smash the yanks like Germany did us at the euros when they cut us apart and won 4-1. And they won't adapt to global changes like England didn't for 40/50 years because they're similarly arrogant and inward looking.

France's CBs are better on the ball than Smalling and Jones, better passers too

And Diani could probably do a job for us out wide, she's class

Well it's my friend asking, and they like good looking women - hence the question

(Note my PC use of "they"; I shan't label them as Male, Female, Non-Binary etc. in these modern times)

...yeah, it's always 'my friend was asking if...' Pikey.
By the way, it might have been someone else but do I remember correctly that about a year ago you were considering trying pegging Pikey?
