Those drunken Brits should be having MMA lessons instead of they want to go to Russia.

I hope the whole bunch of pricks get either denied travel or get the shit kicked out of them in Moscow.

I fucking despise that type of beered-up, tattooed "vindaloo" football fan. Embarrassing

Holland will be someday like Hungary.

No one will believe they were once among the greats.

Holland had world class teams for 40 years, which is kind of an anomaly for a country of its size. England was great in '66.

But Holland beat Portugal 3-0. Might not mean anything because it's a friendly (Portugal beat spain 4-0 in 2010), but it's a result that should be reported.

Did you watch the game romanista?

The current England team are succeeding where others have failed in that I am actually entertained by watching them.

I think they’ll probably live up to expectations by going out in the first or second knock out rounds. Probably to Germany in the quarter finals.

Well this scenario is getting quite a bit of discussion here as well, naturally.... You endless discussion about to save the dutch game (with people arguing at the same time tha the dutch style is too old-fashion, while others claim we should return to the dutch style, since we forgot it...) , with a football association that keeps on blundering (the whole hiddink-blind-advocaat fiasco with damaged so many people).. and the simple fact that others just caught up, and our traditional advantages (early to pick up players from colonies, open to a new style, being in the middle of western europe), have either been met by others, or simply outweighed by the influx of money, which mean no dutch club can keep good players over the age of 23 (which used to be 26 in the bergkamp age)...

There are some positive points as well of course, with ajax talents Kluivert en de Ligt been named talents of the year last week, the road to the Europa League final last year (even though that final itself was cynically won by Mourinho), and games like last weeks 0-3 against Portugal.... I didn't watch it live, as international friendlies mostly are boring, but you saw some really class attacks and an proper idea for the first time in years...

ps. english drunkenness reached a new level last week..
