    Pre-World Cup Friendlies

    Probably deserves its own thread.

    Us v Mexico about to kick off. Chav players rested with Baines in for Cashley, King for Terry & Carrick () in for Arbuckle.

    Crouch starts ahead of Email, which could be a pointer too.

    Haha, just laughing about the argument I had with some idiot a few months ago who said that Walcott, Milner and Crouch wouldn't feature in Capello's World Cup plans. :smug:

    What wonderful company Andy Townsend is...

    A Pretty average start, clichés about foreign sides keeping the ball well are already flying around.

    Yeah, the game's almost offensive in its stereotyping of the respective teams. England well-organised but static and leaden footed and Mexico nippy and comfortable on the ball but poo defending from set pieces.

    Aye, top drawer. Scarey how yer Mexicans knifed straight through us tho.

    Walcott looks man most likely to, but sadly remains unable to cross a road.

    Huh. 2-0. Crouch scoring in a friendly, who'da thunk it? Hands, btw.

    Looked like it rolled down his right rib, onto the arm and into the net.

    England's central defending still nonexistent.

    Yeah, definitely hit the hand. Keeper tipper Rooney's effort onto the bar didn't he? So one decent save from each keeper.

    Vela through the middle again, straight at Green really though. Was about to say if it was on his left then it'd be 2-1 but I'm not so sure anymore... been one of those years for him.

    Edit : Crouch offside as well then.

    Hmm, 2-0 up, but not encouraging, possesion football is the key to International football, and we're still ****e at it. Defence looking dodgy too. Great saves from Green. Matthew Upson is rubbish, BTW.

    Last three words superfluous, IMHO.

    How do people feel about Childs, btw? Something strangely punchable about him.

    Used to not mind him when he was on the radio but he has got steadily worse since he apeared on the one show which still confuses me as concept.

    Lost all respect now he is on ITV.
