    Right.

    Thanks for clearing that up. I wasn't watching properly but it didn't seem overly clear from the commentary.

    Line of sight I can understand, but line of where he might have liked to dive at full stretch given a perfect reaction is bullshit.

    France have all the quality in the world and we’ve got them with Giroud, Coman and Rabiot part of the front 4.

    Why are Poland so shit at football? They have a reasonably large population, are increasingly wealthy, don't take any other sports seriously, and are close enough to Germany and Italy that their best kids could conceivably go through their systems. All things considered they might be the biggest timewasters in the sport.

    They take volleyball, handball, basketball and speedway (does that count?) seriously.

    The disallowed goal was obviously offside imo. The fact that he's never saving it is immaterial.

    Alan Shearer covered that decision very nicely with a couple of replays that clearly showed Maignan physically couldnít have made it and that Dumfries wasnít even close enough to block him.

    I think by standing there like a lemon, with no line of sight issues, he gives up that privilege. Otherwise there is effectively a 5 yard forcefield around the goalkeeper at all times and everyone in it is always active, which is clearly nonsense.

    Agree with this. The keeper isn't getting there, goal stands.

    They are basically a better England in that an even more talented group of players is made to play risk-free football because that is how it is believed that tournaments are won. If I were national team coach of any country I would see my responsibility as being a lot more than simply jobbing my team into the later rounds, and I think most fans think the same way, hence the frustration.

    I was playing the man not the ball when responding to DS last night - Deschamps is wank and his French team spend most of their time asleep. As Waff says, they win in spite of him.

    I’m hoping Georgia surprise us again with another belter game but I think Czechia will bring them down to their level and it will make the game last night look elite

    Why are their loads of videos of fans snapping things of 'cultural significance' like baguettes and spaghetti in front of rival fans who then mock horror at the act? What's the England version? Can't wait to see someone snapping a sausage roll and then getting hit by a plastic chair or bundled by some flat cap wearing Millwall thugs.

    Are players not trained on how to cross the ball anymore? The vast majority of them either don't beat the first defender or are aimed nowhere near where the players in teh box are.

    Running and keeping your shape are the only things that are coached any more. Everything else relies on innate ability.

    On the coaching front I read a particularly lol comment from a Liverpool blogger or something [those things that google feeds to you] saying that fans would be pleased with Slot's approach as the team haven't been particularly well coached over the last few seasons.

    I know they're fishing for clicks and all but come on.

    The ball slightly bounced right before his shot judging from the replay. He shouldn't have gone for that hard a shot mind you, but still.

    If I ran a tv channel I'd insta-sack and never invite back any pundit that comes on and blames "the players" for shit performances. Obviously I disagree, but it's still fair enough if you think it's the fault of the players rather than the manager, but name names and explain what they're doing wrong you absolute flanges.

    Turkey would have always been happy to play for the draw though. Even more so with the draw in the other game.

    It will be interesting to see how/if he declines from where he is. He's obviously lost his explosive athleticism, but presumably the decline from early to late-thirties is much steeper than where he is now to forty-three, so will he get worse? He could always go through progressively worse leagues like when Rivaldo went and lolled around Uzbekistan.
