So did England lose on Sunday because three penalties were issued/saved or because they were not good enough?

Or are they one and the same thing?

They were not good enough at penalties.

Or the keeper wasn't good enough at saving them.

You could further add they were unlucky not to take the penalties first rather than second as there is an advantage to going first.

I never have thought that shooting towards your own fans is a good idea in penalty shootouts. It creates too much pressure. It should never have got to that stage anyway. Mount and kane should have been off at 70 ish minutes. Go for the car. Southgate  is the type of guy to say i've had a good day, won a fondue set and a teasmaid, 250 pounds  i'm going to take the prizes thanks jim

How any of this relates to black lives matter i have no idea

Thats right. 

My original point was the hypocrisy of the main stream media about their excessive hype with regard to the England football matches which in my own view led to the problems off the pitch, including the hooliganism and the social media "outrages". 

Bullying in what ever format, and racism is just one, happens for reasons that are far more complex than what the TV and newspapers were trying to portray this morning whilst ignoring their own massive part to play in the process. 

I think a new thread on the topic may be due next week.

Spoken like a true England fan.

This time, there were a few isolated incidents: the vandalism of a Marcus Rashford mural in Withington, the reprehensible look-at-me racist abuse of England’s black players on Instagram. Equally predictably, these acts were instantly distended and fetishised by a media desperate for them to happen: desperate to affix a simple visual motif to England’s chagrin, to generate enough shock and outrage to fill Tuesday’s newspapers.

Ah, of course, none of it is factual then, sorry. 

Well, a lot of it is edited out of context (because that's what he does) and is deliberately divisive (because that's what he does).

Hard to know which bits are actually real or not given the editing style.

Just a point on unconscious bias but I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen a picture of a drug dealer on trial in the IOM be published by IOM newspapers. Usually it’s just a write up of the court report. Is this because he is a coloured gentlemen?

What an unusual but very well observed point. Photos in the paper and online are rare as rocking horse shit especially in court reporting. A picture is published if it’s a big knob, HNWI or celebrity in trouble. Cretneys ugly mug Cheshire Cat grin is always plastered with his column.
