Not sure of her name, but her tactical insight has been very good.

Surely after todays games (Croatia v Spain & France v Switzerland) more of you are beginning to show an interest?

So was Pogbas goal the best goal so far?
Which was the best comeback. Croatia or Switzerland?
Is Mbappe all he's cracked up to be?

Let's hear it from you....

Got tickets for this evening's game. Very strange, woke up feeling nervous.

For me, Grealish still has to start. Saka, sadly, dropped until at least half time for Foden. It could end up being a very different type of game as it's the first time we'll have had an opposition come at us and attack us properly this tournament, apart from the odd sortie forward from Czech Republic, Scotland or Croatia. Trippier, for me, has to start. We've sorely missed his set pieces when he wasn't in the side, whether it was Mount or Shaw on free kicks. Just isn't the same.

The big thing decision, that perhaps is already sorted but should have more of a question over, is whether Maguire or Mings starts at the back. Maguire has only played 90 minutes in two months. Mings looked assured against Croatia and Scotland, and with the pace of the German attack, do you want to risk an unfit Maguire being turned inside out? But, how do you get a player match fit without giving him match time? It's a quandry.

Hopefully we see Kane get more chances than he has in the first three games. He seems to have started to play progressively further forward as the tournament has gone on, and we're seeing in through on goal, but still doesn't look like scoring. We'll need him tonight. We can't just rely on Sterling for goals, who isn't a natural finisher.

Onwards. Keep an eye out for a Harriers shirt in the crowd. After FourFourTwo failed to deliver a shirt as part of a subscription (miffed emails have been sent), I'm left turning to some vintage red and white halves. Come on Eng-er-lund.
The best team we ever had- since i've been watching the Harriers (2002-)

Front of 532 is fine. It’s just the back of the 500 blocks that’s a bit distant.I’m front of 533 tonight so similar view.

Did you go on the portal yesterday for SF and Final tickets? One benefit of Covid restrictions is that they were only available to UK registered supporters which significantly restricted demand. Managed to get SF2 and Final both Cat 3 which I was pleased about. Just need England to get there now!

Was that your flag that we saw at the end of the Croatia game Harry Err?

Enjoy Harry, and agree on Grealish, sadly i can see Southgate dropping him for Mount. Grealish has done more than Mount over the first few games.
Pogbas goal was brilliant, that or the screamer for Denmark (Christiansen?) cant decide between those two.
For me the Swiss come back was the better one as they were underdogs coming from behind. Despite their decline, Spain arre still fancied.
Mbappe is a brilliant player, just hasnt come off for him during this tournement. All top players have the odd tournement that doesnt work out (look at Kane at the moment)

Shick's was the best for me so far. The speed at which he reacted and the distance it went.

I think that'll be the most remembered goal of the tournament.

Who owns the light blue and Kiddy flag?

I’ve seen that at loads of bars and tournaments abroad but no idea whose flag it it.

I’m pretty sure it was in a bar in Japan in 2002 where I was drinking but nobody appeared to know whose flag it was.

For Gods sake get Grealish and Calvert-Lewin on. Kane just isn't with it and we need someone to run at them.

For some inexplicable reason DCL is not on the bench today...
