    England v West Germany -1990 Rewind Thread

    3.00 O’clock this afternoon on the red button / bbc iplayer.

    A chance to watch it all again. Reminisce about what you were doing and where you were watching it. Comment on football in 1990 and how good the players on show were.

    Can Lineker or Beardsley make an impression for the best of Thread?

    I shall definitely tune in.

    I can remember it well. My brother's under-15s had their presentation day in the afternoon. Trophies given out by Ricky Hill of Luton Town. Couple of beers in the local golf club, pit stop in the pub on the way back and sat down if front of the telly with surprisingly, a load more beer.

    We had some really weak players in this team. Bit like the last semi final we over achieved to get this far.

    Cracking start by England. Breakneck pace from both sides considering the temperature.

    Shilton, Butcher and Robson were all past it.

    We only really played well against the Netherlands and Germany and we didn't win either game.

    Trevor Brooking was an excellent co-commentator. Only ever interjects when there's actually something to say.

    Could interrupt Motson a bit more and it would be fine.

    Waddle looks like heís running in treacle, donít remember him being that slow / unfit.

    He was coming on, but Lineker equalised and he was told to sit back down again.

    My memory is broken. Could have sworn it was the Cameroon game.

    It depressed me thirty years ago and I don't need any help in 2020! Seeing shilton back peddle like that makes my eyes bleed. Seeing Gascoigne walk is still a travesty. Brazilian bastard ref lol!
    Carole Baskin is to blame.

    I always picture Waddle blowing out of his arse everytime he was stood waiting to take a free kick

    have always been sure that had Bully come on, he would have made such a difference to our performances.
    We're all doomed

    I always picture Waddle meandering up from the centre circle to miss a penalty.

    Had been out there for the earlier three group games and already had plans in place to return for the final if we got there. Well not so much of a plan, just I knew I'd be getting to Italy one way or another. Policing had been draconian on Sardinia but figured it would be easier to get tickets, hotels, flights on the mainland. When Gascoigne got booked it just seemed so wrong and the remainder of the game was a blur - goodness knows what it must have been like for him. In a strange way, I was pleased we didn't get to play in a final without him.

    While Bully was my hero, Gascoigne made the tournament.

    It was a blatant yellow to be fair

    No debating it was a yellow. It just felt so wrong

    It was a stupid lunging challenge, but i'm not sure he actually made contact? Which if he didn't back then wouldn't have meant a booking?

    He caught him but Buchwald (I think it was him) milked the fuck out of it.

    I think it was mentioned in commentary that the reaction of the German bench forced the referee to act as he didn't originally reach for his card.

    The tackle by Brehme on Gascoigne on the other hand was a cynical one which may have a ref reaching for his red card today.

    HšŖler made the very most of the tackle on him by Pearce which led to the goal too. Still a foul though.
