They were world beaters after the win against 150th-ranked Moldova! Now how good are you W****rs?
We massively over-rate our talent & ability, my fears were raised after we managed only to score 5 against one of the worst International teams in the world.
It seems as if Cleverly should be used in the Central midfield role more often as does for Man United to get the best out of him. At least with him the ball with keep moving until the time is right to push forward, instead of Gerarrd and Lampard who dont do much from that postion unless they are playing teams that arent that great. They are both good at coming in from midfield and shooting but when they are on the ball in midfield there is no reason to panic from the opositions point of view.
And i thought Scotland were krap! ha ha.
Can anyone explain to me the role of a midfield player? i allways thought it was to feed the forwards from the defence & to break up these moves coming the other way. It seems to me that all recent England managers think it is essential to have a specialist penalty taker in the team, that would be ok if that player could pass, tackle or take part in the game in some way. Lampard carnt do any of these & in the last 180 mins of play has scored 3 goal (2 penalties) & been totally absent for 170 mins. When is someone going to look at his contribution to the game?
wellbeck will not dive if his leg not hit the defender leg...you not always right
Welbeck should stop diving looking for penalty in ye international meets. Yes UK had a sympathetic penalty that saved the day, This will not happen every day.
It's same old story , possession 50-50 and home game .Capelo promised after World cup that he will get rid off old guard .Because of journalist opinions he was not brave to actually do it .What is the point of keeping Lampard,Gerard,Milnew who are proven losers in national team for a long time . Until chance is given to younger players there is no way forward .In any case they will not play worse then those 3 ,actually I am sure they will rise level of play . Sad to see oldies who will never get better playing main role .If we expect them to play in Brazil in two year time ,which they expect ,God save us .Now you know why Scholes ,one of the best midfielder in the world in last 20 years went into exile .Big admiration to him ,for keeping mouth shut for the sake of national team and so called stars.
With replays showing players diving they should be banned for so many games, why are they allowed to get away with it regardless if it actually wins them a penalty or not.
I don't undervalue Wellbecks contribution, he played well (and should have started the game) but he did dive, that's cheating mate! The fact that he dived is "obvious" to anyone that watched the game, or did you close your eyes for that bit? Why bother correcting a minor typo..... I agree, you do need help! Good night all. Mwah!
I will never bet on england ever again,they cost me £600 by not winning this match in an accumalator i had.. England were the only team to let me down.. Useless effin bunch of #$%$ who will never ever win a major cup !
Scoring from anywhere makes you a saviour. I wouldn't like to take a pen in front of 68,000 expectant fans & I'm sure most of the England team would have felt the same. Maybe Cleverley could have taken it had he till been on the pitch! Well done Frank Lampard for keeping your nerve and slotting the ball home. By the way, it's now obvious to everyone that Wellbeck is a cheat..... probably too much time watching Ronaldo!
Gerrard being sent off in the 89 minute didn't cost England the game tonight but us at least that's one positive for the next match!
theese guys play for england , i lost intrest kids play better in a school yard, about time we give them propper wage that play for england well i would say £5 ph
The idea of passing between your players in your own half, is to tire out the opposition. by making them run after the ball. England don't wait or move forward. They just pass to waste time....... Ray
good Chelsea old BOY
Another poor display at home. Where has the fast, flowing, attacking football gone? The ball was passed back or square more than it was passed forward and our attacks were pedestrian Don't blame the manager, the players lack the quality to break down resolute teams.
Gerrard sent off in the 89th minute cost you the game ? .....lol wot a mongo

Scored a fantastic goal that almost gave his side a famous win, and a constant threat cutting inside from the left.
