    Don't get why its only if we win, like if we lose everyone will just suffer the hangover. Also people will want it to be a day off apart from pubs restaurants and shops, so those poor sods have to endure the hangover while smiling at a load of skivers all day.

    He doesn't believe in gestures mind.

    Can't see this being universally welcomed.

    All the talk of our penalty and the Danes free kick validity, really boils down to what are officials doing? Surely they could have checked the distance on the Danes wall? maybe they did? VAR has gone from being a constant pain to just nodding in agreement. Football needs to find a way to use VAR effectively or scrap it.

    Which country do you think would oppose the notion?

    If only England had embraced Marxism much earlier.

    The standard of decisions have been far higher this tournament than when we didn’t have VAR. absolutely no doubt!
    We would have had actual penalties being waived off, offsides given as goals and vice versa. And all the controversy that follows it. The standard of the decisions is clearly far higher than it has been. There has actually been very little controversy. VAR is going nowhere

    Keep the holiday idea but instead offer Wales the day-off if Italy win ;)

    Oh dont worry, if we actually win the thing, this self serving prick will claim "we delivered the European Rugby grand prix thing" winners every time he's questioned "what have the tories delivered" in parliament.

    Been debating this with someone on Twitter who claimed because it didn’t over turn in his eyes a “very clear dive” by Sterling then the whole system has failed and must be scrapped.

    Yes it was a soft penalty but not an obvious dive in my view .

    Generally it has worked well but there will always be a few suspect decisions either way.

    Certainly our officials can learn from how it’s been used effectively and quickly .

    The Sterling dive was always going to be tricky for VAR to overrule because it wasn’t a clear and obvious error.

    IMO, we got away with one there as I’d be furious if that was given against us (especially in extra time) but because the slow-mo showed the smallest bit of contact there wasn’t to call it a clear and obvious error.

    Still can't quite get my head round the fact we're actually in a final.

    When I was growing up I kind of just accepted Leicester and England would always be a bit rubbish but it's what you do as a football fan to still support them anyway.

    The last 5 or 6 years it's just been utterly surreal seeing both England and Leicester do so well.

    Cannot imagine being told as a kid Leicester would win the FA Cup and England might win the Euros in the same summer haha.

    Yes - cannot argue with that.

    I guess the main issue is consistency.

    Another set of officials probably don’t give it .

    I genuinely wonder if the same level of scrutiny regarding the 'winning' of penalties will carry over to club football next season. The Sterling one was certainly no worse than any Salah, Bale or Zaha ones we've seen in the last few seasons, but club managers always back their players to the hilt.

    Contact is contact, and rest assured if it was a player from any other country he would have gone down screaming and calling for the stretcher.....but no, one of our players does what every player does in the box when caught, no matter how lightly, and it's an outrage.

    Would probably do England good to win this, and I mean the county. Especially after all the booing and culture war crap of the last 18 months.

    Maybe it'll chill people out and remind them things like different views and immigration aren't a bad thing.
