    Agreed, 'Is 'ead's been turned. All this talk about him being leggy, load of bollox. Don't know why all the pundits are saying he must start every game. Favouritism isn't good for squad morale.

    He should have the captaincy taken off him and be dropped.
    Then all of him can be elsewhere.

    But the woke wonders running England will never learn.

    If Draghi gets his way it will be 100% Boris Johnson's fault.

    As I said earlier - once Euro 2020 is over and the foreign TV networks have packed up and gone home, watch how quickly the Government tells EFL football Clubs that they can't have full crowds back at games.

    There is a real possibility now that COVID19 has found its way into the England squad.
    In its very early stages, Coronavirus infection may not show up on tests.
    We'll know more in 48-72 hours.

    All those permutations did my head in though.

    Basically, as far as I can see, any third place team hoping to qualify for the round of 16 must have 4 points.
    Only two of the 6 third place teams will actually be going home from the group stages.

    Seeing as we’ve qualified into the last 16 without playing our last group game I wonder what sort of lacklustre performance we’re going to endure tonight <wah>

    All will be forgiven if you do well in the knockouts.

    True enough, football fans are a very sing when we're winning bunch. How about your lot? Good performance against England and a huge bond between fans and players but if Croatia nick a late winner (or you guys battle out a draw) that's the end of the road. Will the draw at Wembley keep everyone north of the border happy if you finish the group by not qualifying?

    That’s a massive “IF” though - haven’t seen anything that fills me with confidence

    I've been following Scotland for too long to expect much. As long as the players turn up and have a go that'll do me. We've got real problems sticking chances away, in fact Kenny Dalglish was the last quality striker we had, and at this level you need to take your chances.

    Absolute farce. It may be technically correct, but the risk of catching Covid from Billy Gilmour must be higher for the whole of the Scottish squad.

    I’m struggling to understand the reasoning behind this

    The PHE decision is all explained on the BBC website, but my lack of IT skills mean I can't copy and paste it.

    The Government are ramping up the marketing of the Euro 2020 climax.

    60,000 fans in West London - a premeditated super spreader event, for global sports TV.
    11,000+ infections recorded today.
    27 deaths I think.
    No figures for vaccinations - but the daily figures are declining towards below 100,000 per day.
