    If Ox and Barkley keep playing like this then they are certainly going to be challenging Rooney for a spot in the team. If the decision had to be made now I think you would have to pick Ox, Sterling and Lallana behind Sturridge.
    Great hit by Lambert, not an easy chance.
    Would love to see Sterling come on, this game is made for him.
    i agree - rooney gets too much leeway
    he is a great player, but i don't think england need him as much as some of the pundits make out
    AOC has been massively more influential in this game

    although i would still start rooney in the world cup due to his experience and potential moments of magic
    i would play sterling and AOC on the wings with rooney in behind sturridge
    potential to bring on lallana and barkley

    It's not even comparable.. Scotland have to face fairly decent opposition. Do you genuinely believe that being able to beat the likes of San Marino make you good? Really?! Hahahaha
    Do you understand how this whole system works? Teams are ranked based on results they pick up against a variety of teams at a variety of standards so beating Brazil would boost your rank by a lot whilst beating San Marino would not. Teams are then seeded based on their rank. If Scotland are playing good teams it is because they are seeded so badly they have to play a good team whilst England are high enough in the rankings to not have to face a good side.
    Scotland finished below Serbia and Croatia and in qualifying you were in a group with the Republic of Macedonia, who you managed to draw to. I think that says enough.

    Just looks nervous more than anything, him and Jones dropping pretty deep, Shaw very conservative staying back as well.

    Yh. Shaw hasn't looked great at all. Must be woy's instructions. Milner showing that there's more to playing fullbacks than meets the eye. He's looked as uncomfortable as I've ever seen him.

    No comment on what I said about Scotland? Nothing on your draw to Macedonia or your finishing below Croatia and Serbia in your group?

    Hmm no it isn't. But did you read the recent study where English men came top of the worst lovers list?

    No wonder they try and pretend to be scottish by wearing kilts at weddings :rofl:

    That's an absolute screamer although it doesn't happen if England have Gerrard and Henderson on the pitch, they are always there to block them. Today England have been absolutely shocking defensively but not one of the back 5 will get a look in for the important games. This is a second team from England and some of them have played well.

    Why is nobody closing down? Begging for it to be hit. Wilshire/Lampard and Gerrard isn't going to work.

    Mostly due to a completely inept manager. With strachan I believe we are currently on a streak of 6 or 7 games without a loss?

    England are only 11 places above Scotland in your precious rankings
