Unbelievable....

"Pubs charge football fans up to £700 for table to watch England take on Croatia"

I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

And I thought the £15pp Docks are charging to keep the riff-raff out was expensive! I’m there on Friday though still.

I'm guessing that's one pub charging £700 for people stupid enough to pay it.

I’d rather buy £150 worth of booze and food and have my mates at my place not spending a penny

Anywhere that wants to charge is taking the pis5


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

It’s on free to view TV. People don’t have to go to the pub to watch it and pay for the privilege.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I think I'll undercut that £700 to £650. At a push at might get 60/70 in the house @ £650 each, that's over £45K; free can Guinness and bottle of red on me and £45k for the youth development. Everyones a winner.

Cancel that the wife's just seen this post, sorry everyone.

Trippier at left-back over Chilwell and and Shaw is the obvious eyebrow raiser. I’m sure there’s logic behind it but whatever it is, it isn’t immediately apparent to me.

All in all it’s a back four that screams “we better be scoring at least to goals if we want to win”. We do have the creativity and firepower to do that though in my opinion.

Not sure of the logic either. Maybe the right winger likes to cut inside???

So many right backs, we have one at left back. Think Shaw is better personally but no surprises there.

Me and my brother had a shot at picking the team we thought Southgate would go with and we were almost spot on.

Would have got Grealush in there somehow myself as he makes things happen, but he's gone cautious with two holding type midfielders in Philips and Rice.

Slightly disappointed but not surprised.
