    Yehhh, I get the instincts are to stay back to not be vulnerable especially against an attack with Mbappe, Dembele, Giroud and Griezman.

    But if we keep staying off them, I can see us conceding again, they have time, field position and the skill.
    Hopefully we can change something up and get on the front foot a bit and create something.

    Stupid kit font too. Leckie looks like he has a question mark on his back.

    Appropriate.

    Aside from the assist, which was great. Hasn’t offered much.

    No point bringing a forward on if you never play the ball forward.

    I’d like to apologise to Mr Kewell. Despite the early Captain Obvious moment, I think he’s been pretty bang on with his assessment and tactical advice so far.

    True, but Stevie wonder could probably watch a game and work out our tactical deficiencies.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen the added times that are being added on so far this WC.

    I like it, but I'd prefer if they could speed things up in the game.

    Yeah, but do we always have to go down this FIFA directive, flavour of the month route.

    Stop tweaking the game

    Aussie DNA didnt get us very far. Who would have thought that actually trying to play football in the first 15 minutes got us on the front foot and ahead on the scoreboard (shocking i know)

    It's like we are playing "Fergie Time"
    every game now

    Who does this extra time favour though??

    The "big" club who will now have more time to turn a bad result around

    When Man City or PSG or Real Madrid or Bayern Munich are not getting the result they should against lower tier opposition we will get 10 mins of added on time instead of 4 minutes for them to get a result

    On a more personal note as Jets fans this should see us lose plenty more games in added on time than we usually do 😜😂

    Actually, one of the good things about the BBC was the analysis. Didier Drogba summised that the first goal was Leckie's fault.

    The graphics showed Behic moving from the left side to the back post to mark. Leckie moved to the front. When the ball was cleared Leckie moved out at the wrong angle, stood at the edge of the box, and left a big hole for Rabiot.

    Leckie out!

    You are there to play football so leave your politics at the door as your piss weak attempt to insult the host country and their values and beliefs are pathetic

    There are other cultures out there who don't support your misguided warped views

    Qatar didn't leave politics behind. They used them to get the world cup by promising things then back tracking last minute
