England V Wales, Sep 6
HustleHard (Arsenal) 5 years ago
England are a complete joke. Fourth IN THE world? YOUR having A laugh, I mean come on wales are ranked 175 or something like that. Wales at least deserved a point you can see Ramsey and Bale playing with a lot of heart. The English players are overpaid and don't really give a s**t.

I'd be really surprised if they make it out of the group stages of Euro 2012.... Fourth IN THE world? YOUR having A laugh!

The reality is that Wales played a lot better than a team ranked 117 in the world, but England were admittedly poor.

Capello has the players available to practically play the Man UTD front 6 (minus Nani and Anderson, and Wilshere is better than Anderson anyway - yes he's injured atm but play the formation atleast) so hopefully when Welbeck is fit he will throw in the much needed second striker. I don't see why he doesn't do it anyway, using Defoe for the time being and with Young playing more in his Man UTD position (wider and deeper) where he has been so effective recently. That would allow Rooney to come deep without leaving a gaping hole upfront - his creativity is much needed but then we have no-one in the box!

And I don't see why Cleverly isn't even on the bench. He's played well for Man UTD for the past few games and I don't see why he doesn't bring him on late in the game to get some experience at international level - he will be a key player in the future and the sooner he gets him involved the better. Capello seems to be so against using the young players. Its likely Lampard will be past it for the world cup in 2014 so why not prepare for the future and find his replacement now when were playing teams like bulgaria and wales?

Anyway, I can obviously do Capellos job better than him, I mean, I can match his record of 10 domestic titles and 1 champs league as a manager....

Wilshere-Cleverly can definitely be a terrific partnership. With Rooney, Sturridge and Welbeck up front too, Capello's got enough quality and options in his squad. I wonder why he's not giving the opportunity to the youngsters, they're the future

Poor Lamps...

I don't get the criticsm of Lampard.... He may have not had a great game by his high standards but he passed well and got into some goal scoring positions. It was a poor pass from Barry and he couldn't get the ball from under his feet with 3 players closing him down. England were rubbish and if anything Wales took control of the game late on, after Lampards substitution. I suppose that was just a coincidence....

More to the point, what was Rooney doing dropping so deep? He had a poor game. England were constantly playing the long ball up to Young, and Rooney who were being towered over by the Wales defence. Strange tactics. Smalling looked poor and Barry was anonymous. England will get horribly exposed next time they face a decent opponent.

The chance at the end where the Wales player was meant to have fouled Young when he broke into the box was never a foul! And Earnshaw should have buried his chance aswell. Wales should have won

Rooney always drops deep that's how he plays

Fantastic win for the British!

Another unconvincing win.... I don't hold much hope for next year. A handful of teams would beat us based on this display

I agree. Not very promising by england. I do not follow them very closely but I am always amazed at the how the immense talent they have gets only mediocre results
Voozy (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Its easy, most of the "immense talent" plays for different clubs, and they are worshiped as gods in those clubs.

Now when you take them all and put them in one club, it just ends up with too many EGO heads to sail the boat.

England national team = too many delusional players believing the media hype

Unconvincing. But it's a result oriented business, and a win is a win

Looks like lamps is done. Too slow. England should have won 5-0 or 6-0. Wales were lucky. Wilshere and Gerrard in midfield(maybe cleverley?) for Euro 2012 with downing and young on the wings(milner/walcott backups, barry is playing great maybe he plays behind Gerrard/Wilshere? Smalling cole terry jones on defence, hart goalie

Avearge performance from england, but they still managed to earn 3 points

Young - downing hug fail

England still doesn't feel like a real team. There is this pressing feeling of individuality from every player. Ashley Young is doing so well lately, hope he keeps on improving

Spot on. The only players I see clicking together are most Man Utd players and Downing

What an average performance by England.

Overhyped, over-priced, over-rated and over-paid English players always felt that they deserved a win after their losses or draws.

Whereas a single win would perhaps disillusioned them of lifting the trophy in every single competition.

What about the spain vs chile match 3-2 where arbeloa had to dive in the penalety box for spain to win it
Sid3091 (Manchester United) 5 years ago
At least England Entertains. Spain has had to have one of THE most Dull WC campaigns ever. 1 nil in almost every match. Enjoy your beautiful(boring) football while we get entertained

Haters from LA liga and Serie A    Seriously?
Reventon (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Spain/Germany/Netherlands/Portugal looks strong....

And england entertains? Sorry mate but what planet are you from? If you find them getting humiliated in the world cup is entertaining then yeah I'll agree with you.
Sid3091 (Manchester United) 5 years ago
They made for a far more entertaining match with Germany rather than spain. Also Rob greens mistake was quite entertaining
Wizie01 (AC Milan) 5 years ago
Haters from Serie A lol.... I'm english you Toad....
