    Aaron Ramsey's hair aside, he was a key part of the squad

    They're going to get absolutely slapped about by Germany in the final, that should be quite funny.

    Not their fault that those opponents couldn't beat them.

    Bit unfair to call those teams crap as well.

    France will run over this team in the finals after they annihilate Germany.

    Croatia and Poland are very good teams.

    Wales, an underrated team on HF, but they were pretty much winning their qualifying group up til the very end that included Belgium.

    As I just said. Had they won they finished 2nd in their group, they would have faced England, France and Germany before reaching the finals. Had they finished 1st, they would have had to go through Belgium in the R16.

    This garbage format saw them enter a bracket as a 3rd place team where they've had the easiest road to the finals.

    Croatia has the best midfield in the world. Poland is better than England too imo.

    You forgot France have to play Germany before that, a team they always lose to.

    There is a 1st for everything as we recently saw with Germany vs Italy

    And Hummels, Gomez and Sami are out, huge losses imo

    All other teams in this Euro (aside from maybe Sweden) were better then England.

    That's pretty much all teams this tournament. Italy and Iceland excluded.

    Except England. :laugh: They went out as we expected.

    A part of the blame belongs to Spain and England who bottled their group though.

    Had they finished 2nd they would have faced 3rd, 1st and 1st in their respective groups.

    As it is, they've faced 1st, 2nd and 1st in their respective. It is a different way of looking at it, but those are the teams they have faced and where they finished.

    Are Bale's other teammates that bad they can't pass him the ball?

    They certainly aren't as creative as Ramsey. They also don't draw defenders as Ramsey do. Ramsey in = more space and better service for Bale. It makes quite the difference.
