    Mexico aren't that bad. A look at their record in World Cups since 1970 show that they're comparable to England's....

    Yes, they had a bad first game, but so did England. Mexico played much better against France, and their defence in particular looked well organised.

    But yes, France did look very poor, which was disappointing, considering how many good players they have in their side. Something is definitely wrong in the camp....

    There really aren't that many good players in France's side though, when you think about it. Anelka and Ribery the two star players, and both went into the tournament on a relatively poor run of form (as well as being widely overrated in general IMO).

    And Evra and Abidal and Gallas and Lloris and whoever else France have.

    You can see the issue that they don't listen to the coach by the way Henry/Cisse et all all were pissing about down behind one of the goals instead of being near Domenech wanting to go on the pitch. Instead of all pitching in to show up the coach, they've just collectively pulled a Gallic shrug.

    Anelka sent home after telling Domenech to **** off. Wow, incredible.

    Hahaha, incredible stuff. So funny. So now they'll presumably be going with Gignac up front, best of luck with that, idiots.

    Domenech is the wanker's wanker; makes McClaren look like Alf Ramsey.

    How has he lasted so long? Fluking a world cup final only bought Brian Ashton a year of being gash before he was handed the pearl handled revolver.

    Domenech really is fictionally bad.

    Maybe Henry will be given a start?

    As he wasn't even used as a sub in the last match it doesn't seem likely. I would give him a go though, he might be able to step up and do a great veteran's run as Zidane did last time around. Seems like it will be Gignac up front alone though, and he looked rubbish last time out.

    Absolutely loving the French team's implosion, makes me feel slightly better about how dire England have been.

    I hate Domenech as much as the next man but if you're going to react that way to your boss giving you constructive criticism then you need to have earnt the right to do so. We're not talking about a talismanic player telling a hopeless manager where to get off: it's an out-of-form, out-of-position, out-of-motivation **** telling a hopeless manager to **** off.
