    Some good play, and we probably should be ahead, but Rooney's struggled with chances more than 6" from the goal line tonight.

    Barclay's looked pretty anonymous. One very good run, several times when he's given it away cheaply, and that's about it.

    And it's already been said, but we really need to be holding 24 hour prayer vigils that Cahill and Jagielka stay fit and unsuspended.

    Two England games in a day is all a bit much, watched the whole 86 quater-final earlier.

    Clive Tyldesley talking about the Miami Dolphins and Dan Marino as if he has a clue about either of them is just painful.

    Indeed. "A bit all over the place"

    Is it possible to be both "a bit" and "all"? Surely "all" implies something in its entirity?

    Hey, pearler of a ping from Lambert. Thought Barkley had taken it a stride too far.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    As is that.

    Can't remember the last time I enjoyed a friendly this much, 3 of the goals have had so gloriously emphatic in such a simple way.

    Great strike and well deserved. They've been all over us for the last 10 minutes.

    We'll lose this unless the midfield sort themselves out and actually get into the game again.

    Not often you see a red in a friendly, never mind two.

    Sterling's maybe slightly harsh.

    Seem to remember suggestions from a certain Frenchman that Martin Taylor should never play football again for a tackle that basically looks identical to this at the point of impact.

    Valencia is obviously a **** but it was a terrible tackle. Not actually aiming this at you specifically because it seems that everyone has reacted in the same way but I don't understand how someone puts in a tackle that could easily break a leg, someone reacts with an angry reaction that realistically isn't hurting anybody (and I imagine if anyone here was tackled like that they'd probably be fairly hacked off too), and it's supposedly the tackler who is hard done by. Sterling's red is absolutely stone-wall.

    People who use still images of tackles are the worst. It was a dangerous tackle, but not because of that bit. You can't see it from that image (how strange, eh?!) but Sterling's leg is actually about half a foot in front of Valencia's and goes sailing past it - there's no impact at that point there as you seem to be suggesting. Just curious, have you actually even seen the tackle?

    The dodgy part is his right leg that comes swinging into the back of Valencia's leg and bends his ankle.

    Strange post. You've totally missed the point. How is any of this mitigating in any way? It's clearly higher than the ball, whether he misses him or not, just as a tackle can be dangerous whether it actually breaks a leg or not.

    I mean, judging from the logic in the part I bolded, any tackle which is fortunate enough not to make contact automatically isn't dangerous. I'm a bit at a loss as to why you've made a flippant post about a still image that clearly shows a tackle that is over the ball, studs up, and with both feet off the ground. If that alone doesn't demonstrate a dangerous tackle to you then we have very different definitions of the term.

    I did see the tackle fwiw, although the screenshot isn't mine.
