Re: Euros 2024

England won last night with Kane and Rice, so although I’d be more than happy to see a couple of new faces start the game, I won’t give up hope unless we go 2 or more down, then we’ll need the cavalry to rescue us!!

Re: Euros 2024

Not like the British press had reacted similarly had the result been reversed. I’d be the first to agree that the penalty was a gift, but I also agree with the comment that Rice was fouled when the Netherlands scored so they even things up. On balance England did enough to justify their win, and wh...

Re: Euros 2024

Well I hope that England win the Euros, but that supposes they beat the Netherlands first, so one step at a time.

Well let’s get this subject back onto the Euro competition rather than squabbling over whose right and whose wrong.

Re: Euros 2024

Southgate takes 1/6th of the government's allocation to the FA. UK Government allocates £30M to the FA each year. Peanuts Yes peanuts, but it means the Government have a say in how it is spent. As far as I can find, the Government have no say in the running of the FA https://www.thefa.com/about-foo...

Re: Euros 2024

Let’s hope for a good game tonight between France and Spain - France are the underdogs but that won’t necessarily stop them spoiling the party!!

Re: Euros 2024

I was spending government money most of my working life, and I can assure you, paying more for something better just doesn't happen. When the EU got to hear about it, we were forced to downgrade even further. Yes, paying whatever the guy demands sounds great, and I'd love it; but we don't have an A...

Re: Euros 2024

As in any major job, you have to pay the going rate to attract the calibre of candidates likely to succeed. By all means structure it in a way that rewards success, but it would still require a competitive base salary to attract the right person. As you have said, Southgate has achieved more than an...
