Don't want it to sound like sour grapes, but was he that good for us when fit?
We're Fleetwood arsed when he left them?
Greedy twat. Hope one of our stellar replacements has him in their pocket should he come up against us
Wonder who'll give him a chance after last season?Probably stay in League 1
So do we definitely need to beat India and New Zealand or can we rely on other results going in our favour?
Don't think one win will be enough with Pakistan's run -in.
Can hardly see the top three throwing it away (although NZ well beaten today).We can watch the semis as neutral observers
Am away, unfortunately, but can assure you SOME of those on here aren't averse to putting their hands in their pockets.
It has opened up the old club v country debate at work.
Couldn't really give a toss about national side, as long as we do well............quite a bleak fan's life, really.

Just a bit fed up of all the hype. "England will qualify comfortably", " best team in world " etc, when, in reality, we always fail to deliver.
We'd capitulate in NZ position with 5 wickets down, but they put together a 100 partnership which gives them a chance

How the hell are we pre-tournament favourites and no. 1 in world?
Did we beat Scotland, Netherlands, Mongolia and Sark to qualify? Oh no, I forgot. Believe the jocks did us recently
To be fair to the Scots, they're not hyped up to be world-beaters.
Any success is to be savoured, whereas England seems to think it has a divine right to be the best.
Face it, apart from two extra time wins (rugby in Oz was a helluvan achievement), one of which was decided, partially, by a goal that never was, despite the cross being delivered by one of our own, we're pretty crap at everything (apart from maybe our politicians leading in an exemplary manner; impartial, refined, unselfish ambassadors for our country, acting with the best interests of the electorate in mind)
The bookies think we will be looking down rather than up.
Aren't we thirteenth on the list?
