    Cole has been great in shoot-outs, can't stand the weasel, but I think he's scored in a number of key ones.

    One thing you have to give Roy credit for is getting the team chemistry right. Am I right in saying this has been the first England team in ages where the team actually seemed united and not a bunch of primadonnas thrown together to make a team?

    Yeah, I'd go a long with that.

    Too bad that it's probably the worst in terms of ability since the days of Graham Taylor.

    Generally, I'd let players with better shooting techniques to take penalties. TBH, didn't know Cole had taken so many penalties. I remember the CL ones but not much besides that. Anyway, harsh to blame him since he had a good tourney.

    Taylor had Gascoigne.

    Thought that was the worst part of the tactics involved. Keep a dedicated player on Pirlo and there goes 50% of Italy. Rooney, Welbeck and Carroll did track him but nowhere near enough. As the English commentators said he basically had a cigar in his mouth and was playing passes.

    I thought Pirlo's performance was way overrated tbh - apart from the penalty that is. It's not too hard to play accurate long balls when the opposition midfielders aren't closing you down.

    Bollox. he had an easy group and they won, we've qualified from our groups every time recently, until we ran up against good oppo, exactly the same as here. The difference is this bloke didn't even qualify us.

    shambolic

    Evidently it is if you're English.
