Similar to how you had won the world cup because you beat the likes of Kazakhstan and Andorra 5-1 and 6-0?
I wouldn't say so Englands track record in qualifying is great then it all goes down hill at the tournament. In all honesty Scotland is still a UK team so I want them to do well - at least qualify. Also my home team is made up of mainly Scots (Middlesbrough FC)
Capello will blatently stick Kevin Davies up top and launch from the back
Randomly I just found this on Wiki:
A highly unconventional formation, the 4–6–0 is an evolution of the 4–2–3–1 in which the centre forward is exchanged for a player who normally plays as a trequartista (that is, in the 'hole'). Suggested as a possible formation for the future of football, the formation sacrifices an out-and-out striker for the tactical advantage of a mobile front four attacking from a position that the opposition defenders cannot mark without being pulled out of position. Owing to the intelligence and pace required by the front four attackers to create and attack any space left by the opposition defenders, however, the formation requires a very skillful and well-drilled front four. Due to these high requirements from the attackers, and the novelty of playing without a proper goalscorer, the formation has been adopted by very few teams, and rarely consistently. As with the development of many formations, the origins and originators are uncertain, but arguably the first reference to a professional team adopting a similar formation is Anghel Iordănescu's Romania in the 1994 World Cup Round of 16, when Romania won 3–2 against Argentina. The first team to adopt the formation systematically was Luciano Spalletti's Roma side during the 2005–06 Serie A season, mostly out of necessity as his "strikerless" formation, and then notably by Alex Ferguson's Manchester United side in the 2007–08 Premier League season (who won the Premier League and Champions League that season).
Scotland were brilliant last night. Glorious failure as usual though
If only they played with the same heart and effort (and formation!) against the Lithuania, Lictenstein and Czech we'd probably be sitting prettier. As with Scotland though, we only play well against big teams. Same old ****, different decade
