Okay so England won, not a great performance by any stretch of the imagination, but then not the team Roy would have fielded if he hadn't rested the Chelsea contingent or had he had Rooney available for the opening games. No way is Theo Walcott up to the task nor Downing, still think there is something strange in his continous selection under so many England Managers. Jones struggled, the passing wasn't much better than non league pub football at times and yes I too switched across and back to the Eurovision Song Contest....thats another gripe!
Rubbish display from Woy's boys - pub league standard.
Can't wait till the Euros start - Anyone But England.
Really happy for Hodgson he is obviously chuffed to bits with his new job and a win is a win! No reason why England shouldn't do well as long as we play like a team
will never forget smashing germany in a friendly 5-1 but it meant nothing in real competition..
well done to england not the greatest display but a win is a win, people slag of england for there display but if we did this 8 more times in the euros wud u be unhappy about it, i know i wudnt
feel milner is so selfish, carroll is free yet dont wan to pass and choose to shoot.........i think gerrard have to play longer to make him more fit, downing making the defender head pain XD Young nice goal ^^
I can't believe you lot.Roy's 1st game, 1st pick of a team,1st away game,playing Norway, errrrm what else to say ? oh yes we beat Norway o-1.
Well play England, but I'm not sure we are good enough to win if we against other stronger teams, 1st half excellent, 2nd half....bad , Andy Caroll did really well at front and halp the defence, Steve Gerrard made good passes, but something was missing in the team, lucky to keep a clean sheet .
King Olaf, Roald Amundsen, Liv Ullmann, Edvard Munch, Vidkun Quisling, Thor Heyerdahl, Henrik Ibsen, Edvard Grieg, can you hear me? Your boys took a hell of a beating!
england were probably begging for rooney to come and play on the penalty area, norway were really hoping for their team to just swipe it it past the england goalie, well done ashley young for scoring, but what was that open goal you hit the post on?! the goalie was still getting up on his feet,the defenders were up pitch.
I fully agree with comments made by Michael 22.6 26th.We used to do well playing the proper game i.e.1-2-3-5.so why not go back to it,it was afar lot more entertaining than all thi load of rubbish that is dished up now.These so called pundits must be watchig a different game to me.
urrrm not 1 Chelsea player playd in this game so wTf are you lot talking about lol
Capello won titles with every club team he managed. Except England. Why? He is clearly a great manager. England are terrible, and it is hilarious. Can't wait to see you idiots get knocked out in group stage :)
Chelski ruined the Champions League final with this sort of play...now it looks like England are going to bore for Britain at the Euros. Well, I for one won't be watching any more of this mince.
The Cancer of Chelsea's style of play has hit Englands now. This marks the end of entertaining/attacking football as we know it.
@ Michael. The Cancer of Chelsea's style of Football has hit England's style. Thats the end of entertaining football as we know it. Norway were all over us.
no wonder England team can't do anything and is always under pressure, look at the comments from their own supporters, this is disgrace from most english. look! if you don't want to support just shut the F**** up and masturb*t*
Reply to barry For God's sake, people, stop using Spain as if they were the supreme in football. --They are NOT. They 'won' Euro 2008 followed by World Cup 2010 - an unthinkable, UNPRECEDENTED in history and very unlikely double. Spain lost ALL matches following the WC1020: With Argentina they lost 4-1 With England they lost 1-0 With Portugal they lost 4-0 With Belgium they lost 2-1 With Italy they lost 2-1 They lost every match. -Without FIFA's and EUFA's referees help, they LOSE. Spain would NOT score 20-1 against England.
Well after watching tonights football match, Norway v England I can truly say SSDD. They spend more time in there only half going back and back. Please can some one with a bit of brain power, show them a map of where the goal is??? I hear the pundits talking at half time and full time, and I believe they are watching another match than the one I am looking at. Well they need the money for all the dribble they talk about. So now I truly believe England are now hopeless at International Football, So forget the Euro 2012, I believe the English football players do what they know best, counting the money they don't earn on the football pitch, and as for playing for England you should play your socks off 101%. I feel so sorry for the fans that follow the team on away games, spending money to watch the SSDD year after year. So come on the F.A. take your finger out of your rear orifice, and start to play English Football as we know it, The old and proper way 18.104.22.168 not this way England play now 10.back and One up front, and always facing the wrong way to the goal. Birds have wings, But with English football we have the parsons nose, Aways behind the times in any sport. And if we do win at any sport it is History to the British people. So come on people send all your views to the F.A.??? As they are not doing the job right, for the sake of English Football and the Fans.
