    Does anyone watch the Arsenal channel on youtube?

    I get the feeling Ox is really missing Jenko's banter this season, we need to keep him when he returns regardless of whether he's doing **** or not (and he's certainly not doing badly)

    He just isn't the same with Chambers
    Jenko and the Ox are a good laugh! The one with Chambers was just dull though.

    Deserves a call up.

    Chambers is a CB.

    Omg England are actually winning (but then again, it's only the u21s and a friendly. If it was an actual England v Germany senior match, ozil reus and muller would tear the English back line apart)

    I apologise you're right, I assumed because he's played in every CL game he'd also be their no. 1 keeper in the league, I was mistaken. Quite brave on Barca behalf having a cup keeper that also plays all the CL games, considering it's the most important competition for them

    This is what I mean about the negativity with England, there's literally no reason to expect us to lose tomorrow, we may be **** in important international competitions, but you can guarantee we'll beat a top 10 side in a meaningless friendly (for more information see matches against Spain and Brazil in the last few years)

    Gerrard and Lampard; two of the greatest midfielders in Premier League history apparently "couldn't play together".

    Give me a break; with the quality that England have possessed, all it would've taken is a manager to match said quality.

    Unfortunately we're stuck with a manager who constantly looks like he forgot why he walked in to the room...

    Gerrard and Lampard didn't work because both were box to box, and neither were good enough as ball winners. They liked to make runs into the box (Lamps stayed more on the edge) and with 2 up top it just means there's congested space and nobody benefits. When most teams moved to a 3 man midfield after they realised the need for stability in midfield we were left behind. A 3 of Scholes, Gerrard, Lampard could've worked.

    Diamond midfield with Lampard at the tip, Gerrard and Scholes in the middle and Hargreaves at the base. Shift Beckham into right back.

    I didn't mean just a midfield 2 of Gerrard and Lampard; as you point out, different systems could've worked if the managers had been creative/risky enough.

    I just feel like England have wasted many players and a whole heap of quality, achieving more or less nothing.

    It's a little ridiculous that since we were founded in 1870, we've won one major international trophy.

    One.

    That's the same as Greece...

    If Alex Ferguson was English we'd have won every competition from 2002 to 2008
