Julius Caesar's invasion, in 55 BC and not 50 BC, was more of a raid, after which the Romans withdrew. The successful Roman invasion occurred under Claudius (or Sir Derek Jacobi, as those of us who were around in the Seventies know him) in 43 AD.

His immense talent was immediately obvious to all
But he didn't actually do anything in the last match, and England still won, which indicates that the manager has created a team that genuinely works as a team, something England have not had in many decades, and they don't rely on this or that superstar, just as they didn't under Sir Alf Ramsey in 1966.

Yes he did, he just didn't score. He was dropping deep and creating space for others, winning fouls etc. Just because he wasn't doing his usual stuff up top doesn't mean he did nothing.

I'm also sick of the Henderson and Sterling criticism. Henderson has been ****ing brilliant.

The only England players I think who have been subpar really are Alli and to a lesser extent Walker honestly.

If England win there is a non trivial chance the country goes dark for an undefined period of time.

I have stocked up on tins just in case.

Re: 2018 UEFA world cup - Eng vs Cro

Why are all these Brits acting like they've already won the world cup?

You'd think they've have some knowledge of the last 50 years of ineptitude.

Here's a reminder

2018 UEFA world cup - Eng vs Cro

I feel slightly bad for the mainly-jokers. They’re still a very welcome part of the wagon but they won’t quite get the same level of satisfaction as us true it’s coming home believers when it comes home.

Lol, I particularly enjoyed the fact that BOIDS remembered you referring to Sir Harry as a Norwich tea boy so searched for “Norwich tea”.

All is forgiven though, that was a different time, it wasn’t coming home yet then.

England has only barely beaten Tunisia. This "it's coming home" thing is ridiculous.

YOU ARE HERE

England has only barely beaten Tunisia and then played the worst team in the tournament and then lost to the only good team in the group and then had to resort to penalties to get past a weak Colombia and then just had to beat Sweden who don't even have Zlatan anymore and then scraped past Croatia on an easy path to the final. This "it's coming home" thing is ridiculous.

England had the easiest path to the final ever and then got lucky to win it. They've only won it twice in 52 years. They won't even qualify for Euro 2020.

England had the easiest path to the final ever and then got lucky to win it. They've only won it twice in 52 years. They won't make it out of the group in 2020.

Two World Cups and a Euros title doesn't make England the world's best team, they just got lucky. Sir Gareth Southgate has no chance in Qatar.

Winning back-to-back World Cups means nothing it's still LOL INGURLAND.

Don't worry mate, just bask in the tears of all these minnöw nation fans while us brave English and the brave, smart outsiders on the wagon enjoy the glory of it coming home. Great post though.
