    Was a great cross by Baines for Rooney's goal.

    Ooh just about offside there.

    Yeah, what the hell - tuned in about 10 minutes ago and England actually look quite good. I've been to 3 or 4 of their games recently and they were all dreary pieces of turd - what's going on?

    Well domne lads, and well done Hodgson, really made some blinding decisions here.

    Still think Wellbeck and Sturridge aren't, in the end, international footballers, but their energy around Wayne and Gerrard really makes a difference. It's what management is about getting the best out of what you've got, no matter how limited. Townsend has been a revelation obvs.

    Oh and having someone in central midfield, who can keep the ball, and coax attacks doesn't hurt either.

    Haha, what a game. England is pwning Poland. I didn't think Carrick+Gerrard with Carrick holding had the legs in it but it has worked beautifully as Gerrard has gotten up enough to dictate in their half too. Townsend and Baines providing really good width and delivery; Sturridge, Rooney and Welbeck are stretching them left and right too. Exciting game.

    All true. Brilliant match and a very good performance, especially in the last 20 minutes or so of that half. Shame about Sturridge's finishing, but I think you're right about his impact. We do look horrible when they break though, and Smalling simply isn't at the races in those situations. Plenty of squeaky bum moments to come, one suspects.

    Having actually listened to Butcher at half time there's more than a twang.

    Still sounds English though

    Baines is so good, and Poland seem to think they can just let him cross as much as he wants and it'll all be swaz.

    Really good balance to this side, almost been caught out on the break a couple of times but you just have to accept that if you want to play attacking football.
