    Don't tell Steds, but he has a cooler name that Dave Mohammed and surely can challenge for his throne if he continues his awesome ways?

    I mean Shaka Hislop is a name meant for a champion.

    That T&T v Sweden game today reminded me of Man Utd vs Sunderland. Domination but no goals.

    Finally got back from the local hostelry where I've been watching today's games & consuming more beer than is strictly necessary and/or wise.

    The first fifteen minutes aside we were shocking. No cutting edge up front (WTF was Sven playing at taking off Owen for Downing?!? It's patently obvious to all & sundry he's dropped a bollock selecting Walcott, but that confirmed the fact that now Sven realises it too), Fat Frank & Stevie G played like total strangers & we gifted a desperately mediocre team the lion's share of second half possession.

    I suppose it's kinda nice to be moaning about an England win rather than a draw/defeat tho.

    Hats off to T&T. Absolutely top drawer stuff. Shaka was immense, but credit to Carlos Edwards too, who was a complete Trojan at the back. Sweden looked fairly ordinary for mine tho, Ibrahimovic performing his usual trick of going missing when it matters. Sending off was a farce too, the lad clearly took the ball. If we're going to caution any robust challenge we might as well all eff off & play basketball!

    Apparently any two footed challenge is a yellow.

    That may be the FIFA directive, but if so the law is a donkey (if I said "***" the filter would ping me! ). If a player takes the ball cleanly before the man all bets should be off. Strikers get enough protection nowadays as it is.

    Well things work differently in the WC. The refs are more stringent. Should be the same across the borad in all the leagues but meh...

    The Defoe who managed a staggering 9 goals in 39 games for Tottenham this season?

    Joe Cole second, just for his first-half display, but that's down to Sven. The decision to take Owen off was baffling, to say the least.
    I can see the thought process - at the time said to my brother he's looking at 5 across the midfield.

    If that's the case, then I'd say Crouch is more suited to being on his own upfront than Owen.

    Probably because Walcott wouldn't fit into the new system he wanted?
