Still 9 goals in 39 games more than TheoOriginally Posted by steds
Where did I say I was advocating Walcott?
Think we could find an amazing player that plays abroad, could choose to play for Canada and also in a few years could play for Germany but really wants to play for England instead?Originally Posted by steds
I was disapointed with Sweden, they did play pretty well but they didnt change their system early enough to find a goal. Kallstrom made a massive difference when he came on but he didnt have enough time.
Allback knows to how stuff a chance doesnt he?! If Sweden miss out on qualyifying they will only have themselves to blame.
England i thought were ok, they were never really gonna concede a goal, Terry played great and Crouch played well up front, i thought the ref was very hard on him and England, they didnt seem to be able to buy a free kick.

What it was in theory yesterday was to try and stifle the midfield and keep the ball as much as possible in order to get the win, which is all the group is about really.

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
I was concerned they'd get a penalty courtesy of the number 13 - the biggest cheat I've seen in a long time.Originally Posted by broncoman

... but only if (say) Gerrard is your advanced midfield player looking to bridge the gap between midfield and Crouch.Originally Posted by marc71178
Joe Cole's an amazingly skilful player, but he's more suited to running with the ball than trying to play off a target man.
During the second haf, the number of players we had in midfield seemed to become a barrier - an obstacle for the back four to launch balls across. Beckham seemed to drop even deeper (because it was so crowded?) and hit aimless seventy-yard crossfield bombs instead of the usual aimless () fifty-yard crossfield bombs.
He tried his hardest to get Gerrard sent off.Originally Posted by marc71178
Still, let's hope that game was the potential banana-skin and we've got away with it (as opposed to de Trini Posse match)
A lot of pundits have said that, but as usual the media vendetta will overlook that.
To put it into context, Paraguay played Argentina and Brazil home and away in qualifying, and lost only 1 of those 4 games, whilst only conceding 1 goal in total.
Bit of a lacklustre performance by England. While I cannot profess to know much on soccer, the great start should've resulted in a 3-0 or 4-0 result , but for 87 minutes of failure to score is a bit odd.
I hope they can raise their game as they progress thru the opening round of group matches .
yeh for sure, i think he knew he was gonna get away with murder out there as it was obvioius the ref wasnt going to call fouls against them...Originally Posted by marc71178
I'm pretty sure they settled for 1-0 pretty early on, in saying that i dont think they stop trying to score goals but they knew they could rely on the defence to keep a clean sheet, imo England will warm to it in the tournament and a slow start as long as they win will prolly wont bother Sven.Originally Posted by JASON
Correct me if I am wrong but Brazil beat Paraguay 4-1, last year. Whilst Argentina lost in Asunción last September in a game which was nothing more than a farce, Argentina had already qualified and it is pretty well known that both teams were going to **** over Uruguay from the outset.Originally Posted by marc71178
Also bringing up such scores is rather redundant do you not think?
England lost to Northern Ireland, what is the meaning of such a defeat and what are the connotations if anyone beats Northern Ireland, not many.
