    That would be my take on it. It was always likely that Germany would regroup over half time and that England wouldn't be able to maintain any sort of intensity. I stuck around long enough into the second half to see Gerrard miscue a decent chance wide of the near post, told my missus it would be 3-1 or 4-1 and took my son over to the park. Yes, of course the Lamard decision was a ****ing joke which simply shouldn't happen at this level, but we'd been utterly outclassed for most of the first half and to give a away the two goals that we did before half time was village green stuff. Quite how anyone could comments on the German's supposed defensive frailties had always been beyond me given the impotence of our attack and the likelihood that theirs would rip our painfully slow defence to shreds, and so it proved. It was all very well whining about Beckenbauer's comments, but they always sounded true to me, and so that proved too.

    Farewell to the 'golden generation' then: I can't say I'll miss them at all. It'll be fun for some poor sod trying to put together a new side from the few Englishmen who get a game in the PL.

    Er, no. Even in the two-team league that is La Liga these days, they still conceded 24 goals - and that's been their best for a while. That's pretty much par for the top 4 teams in the EPL over the last few years. If you look overall for Barca and EPL top 4 over the last few years, they're clearly not as good and certainly not playing "far better defensive football than any EPL side could dream about".

    What Ikki said. At best, an argument could be made that Barca are on par with the top EPL side in defensive football IMO.

    Don't worry about arguing with pratters guys. The only thing he knows less about than football is leaving a forum.

    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    no idea if you do, coz I've never done it (slagged off Indian fans), Indian fans I know are generally decent

    Still find it odd posting on a place where it doesn't happen to slag off england fans, when the england fans here have done nothing of the sort.
    Nah fair call there, I probably phrased my first post poorly.

    I meant that in the overall picture (i.e. fans, media, players etc.) there are some serious similarities to English football and Indian cricket.

    Not CW English football fan posters in particular.
