Gutted but proud
#11
Proud of these young players and gutted for them but just not good enough on the night croatia's more experience won them the game , but the future looks bright and hopefully our time will come again and this experience will be invaluable to them on how to close a game out.

 Nearly 50 and seen neither in a final.

Ditto - wrong side of 50 now. This was as good a chance as I think I'll see and for me Southgate blew it. 
I get how well he comes across and we got further than expected but it fell nicely and a better manager may have taken advantage.  I think he will get the job for a while now and sadly I think that means we will not get much further forward. A decent bloke though who you can get behind unlike Fat Sam for example. Must be a better option somewhere though...

My 10 daughter is in bed now, after holding back the tears.

I said Don’t worry bab you’ll only be 38 by the time you see them in the next semi final!!!

Her new Albion kit arrives soon so that’ll cheer her up.

I would love to hear a list of better alternatives. He got loads more right than he did wrong.

Strangely enough I feel nothing compared to the night of Foster having his episode at Villa park, but it’s a big step on the way to actually enjoying watching my national team again. They’re all very good, humble, hard working lads - made a far better fist of it than the “golden generation “

We had better players on paper then and a variety of managers who couldn't get a tune out of them too.

Snap...unless you count the play-off final.

Is it age / maturity or just that I don't feel we were robbed as we were in 1990?
