Must admit I'm getting a bit fed up listening to all the excuses especially when you think about how much they get paid each week! The pressure got to them? I mean what the heck! Are they pros or not?

most of these player play with pressure in the prem and champs league, they just arent playing well. i think its the wrong system, hardly anyone plays 4.4.2 anymore

what goals there werent any lol and james hardly had a shot too save lol

they were never going to trouble any goalkeeper to be fair trace come on...green makes one error and your slaughtering him totally unfair. defenders make more mistakes as do everyone on the pitch made more mistakes with schoolboy bad passing. dont hear you slating that

stop getting your y fronts in a twist :donald:

england have played rubbish for both matches up to yet lets face it they really should start packing there cases

tell me who has played well so far

germany were crud today. the aussies were so poor last game that made them look good

brazil, nowhere near as good as they were, didnt play well either

italy rubbish

spain, they were the pre tournament faves, nope not good enough

only team that have played wellish so far is argentina

if we can hit the form we played in the qualys we can still win it but i very much doubt it, unless he plays a different formation and a few different players

and history says 100% england havent won anything without west ham players in the team :lol: look it up its true :wink: :lol:

I think we were lucky that our apponents played equally as poor and the goalie was the only player that did any real work. As long as they don't start talking about sacking the manager for staff incompitance

why did capello insist on playing gerrard on the left just to accommodate Barry
?? total madness if you ask me. surely you play your best player in his best position !!!

Skywatcher
20-06-2010, 11:20 AM
Totally agree. Gerrard in the centre. Rooney on the bench. Crouch starting up front as he is far more talented than husky and can actually hold the ball up, as opposed to husky who struggles to hold even himself up against gravity.

I also thought James was a safe pair of hands yesterday and claimed a few good balls from corners etc and should start on Wednesday.

I don't buy the whole nerves argument. They just don't loo bothered as a team.

I honestly felt if you put a team together from the lower leagues you'd see more passion and determination.

MinnieMouse
20-06-2010, 11:44 AM
I agree either in centre or just behind rooney or whoever he decides to play up front... you could see on friday that gerrards natural instinct is to move inside and dictate the play, I don't understand capellos thinking on putting a right footed player on the left. I hope that he uses Joe Cole in some capacity on wednesday too !!

ukwdwnut
20-06-2010, 11:47 AM
my team would be

i would have taken scott parker no question to play where ive put carrick
green only instead of james as james flaps too much at corners, crosses etc
defo would have taken bentley when becks got injured. phillips and lennon cant cross a ball for toffee


Green


Johnson........Dawson........Terry..........A. Cole


Carrick


W.Phillips.......Gerrard.........J. Cole


Rooney........Defoe

Well I'm at work as well , and considering the last performance I'm actually completely fine about that :rolleyes:

After the french fiasco its not about passion and the joy of playing for your country its about a load of overpaid prima donnas prancing about - I would have much preferred South Africa to qualify yesterday than England today

I completely agree - I don't see what all the fuss is about. I mean come on who really believes that England could win, hmmm I don't think so!! Far too much pressure, far too over paid etc etc.

Ooo can you tell I hate football :yes::tongue:

Well I'm going out on a limb here to say

JUST WHEN DID FOOTBALL BECOME MORE IMPORTANT THAN EDUCATION!!!! :mad:

Schools closing early so kids can watch the game - yes I know it's only once every 4 years but what sort of message are we sending out. It's ridiculous. :sigh:

Stepping off soap box now. :sorry:

Claire

I'm guessing maybe the powers that be think that the children wouldn't miss very much in the hour or so that they're allowed to go early? A little like finishing at lunchtime on the last day of term maybe?

mumof2
23-06-2010, 02:56 PM
Matthew didn't finish early, he pedalled home as fast as he could, watched it for a while and is now in the garden fiddling with bikes! :thumbsup:

23-06-2010, 02:58 PM
oh and i just remembered my nephew's school is screening at the school....i think the children can get ice creams and drinks while they watch.

Skywatcher
23-06-2010, 03:04 PM
well our kids didn't finish early and I'm flippin glad of it too, I'd have been livid - I could understand it sort of if it was the cup final and a once in alifetime thing but for a group game - well its just not right

life goes on!!

MystikPiglit
23-06-2010, 03:11 PM

I agree.
I wouldn't mind if they applied it to all sports, such as cricket / rugby / athletics etc. I don't understand why football has been singled out.. :unsure:

Claire
23-06-2010, 03:14 PM
I wonder if it's a way of preventing mass absences? If they let the kids go early there's more chance they'll arrive in the first place?

ukwdwnut
23-06-2010, 03:21 PM
at our school its only the upper end of the school thats off all the other years are still there. why i dont know(that they were given time off)

this is one of the best games of the cup so far, I just cant see them losing

COME ON ENGLAND!!!

But Slovenia SHOULD have lost to the US 3:2, so I don't feel the least bit sorry. Just happy we scored that last minute goal. Would have hated to be eliminated because of horrible call by a referee.
