    Was just about to write a post defending Rooney too... Basically the same point others were making. He was atleast involved in chances on goal.

    Johnson is still **** though

    Times like these I wish I was watching it in a crowded bar with other fans I reckon the celebrations would be so great.

    My point is more really about the general (consensus rather than on here actually), that everything is #rooneysfault.

    Anyway, glad England scored. They've been pressing hard the past 15 or so and deserved it IMO. Uruguay kind of invited it.

    It's crap cameraderie is over-rated compared to drinking and getting to the toilet.

    Ridiculous that Fucile just came on, and it wasn't for Pereira.

    Don't really have a dog in the fight but happy that England scored after the time wasting crap by Uruguay. I hate it every time a team does it (except when my team does it of course, like Ishant coming out with two left gloves..)

    ****ing computer froze when they scored. Come on England! Rooney looks like the weight of the world is off his shoulders now. Just don't let that **** Suarez in with a chance.

    Cahill's been excellent; rest of the defence that's been the problem.
