    Norway won that group. You should have been in ahead of the Netherlands.

    One goal away from winning the group is appalling?

    Sorry didn't mean to sound disrespectful. You had a good side but were very, very dulll to watch in the tournament. You needed either a win or a high scoring draw against Ireland and put ten men behind the ball and played for 0-0. Go figure.

    Yeah, that was stupid, I agree. Suppose we were so successful with that tactic in quali that the coach thought it'd work in the finals, too. The 6 years of success in Norwegian football was based on utter dullness anyway.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    If possible maybe a run out in the last 5 minutes if the match is won he shouldn't play.

    20 minutes with the game in the bag would be the ideal situation.

    Also seems like Gary Neville is out of tomorrow's game, can not say I am concerned, Jamie Carragher could do the job, can only play the five yard pass but his defensively sound.

    well Gary Neville was easily the worst player in the last match so perhaps its a good idea. I lost count of the amount of times he gave the ball away.

    Hmm. Ash Cole must've run him fairly close.

    Young Michael wasn't too flash either, but at least he & Mr Tweedy have the fitness issues as excuses.

    I think at least 40 minutes from the remaining two games would be what Wine and Sven will be looking for, ideally.

    5 minutes?

    What use will that be to him?

    If he's going to be put on to get match practise, has to be at least 20 IMO.
