    Who is boasting about it? By your reasoning Spurs are the same as a nothing club since you havent won anything since 1999, and that was only the worthless cup.
    I dont know about you but us Arse fans tend to be proud of our team when they achieve a decent result, runner up in the CL to the best team in Europe is decent for a 'one man team'. Says a lot about a club when they havent won anything significant for 15 years.

    theres no point in boasting about getting to the champions league final when you lost it. nobody remebers the losers and if your that happy with defeat you shouldn't have been there in the first place. says al lot about a club when they are just happy for the occasion.
    if you got to the final, we wont hear the end of it.. We are proud of our teams progress!! Which is more than we can say for yours.. Sour grapes for sale :rolleyes:

    Rooney has only missed 2 more weeks of football than the other squad. He got injured at the end of April, the Premiership ended on the 11th of May. He'll be far sharper than Owen if he manages to make the end of the group stages, which was looking a distinct possibility before that haggis munching, **** sucking, whiskey swigging piece of human excrement stuck his fat blood vesseled nose into medical matters that he has no understanding of. Ferguson knows **** all about injuries compared to a qualified doctor, who the **** gives a **** if that grey haired tool says Rooney won't make it when a qualified and experienced sports physician says otherwise.

    WTF ....missed only two more weeks of football than the other squad? Explain that please...

    He's had a bad injury, he's lost his match fitness, hasn't even kicked a football since then....he broke two ****ing metatarsals....jesus christ, what planet are you from? :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Correct.

    I scored against Juventus before I retired and have since talked about a coaching role. Who am I?

    I'm putting this separate as this is not exactly the world cup, but still a talking point.
    Lennon was brilliant today! Kept going right to the end, and Belarus's only option was to foul him. I felt soooooooooooo sorry for Green; he did not deserve that and to rub salt in the wounds, the no. 11 decided to score-poor sportsmanship???
    Hargreaves was crap! Can't remember a single good thing of his and gave the ball away often in his own half. England looks a bit out of sorts in 2nd half-not helped by the injury. But the passing was pretty poor. Owen, Crouch, Campbell and cole did ok, but not brilliant. Owen needs someone to catch him on his foot so he is not scared about injuring it again. Poor performance, but some good stuff (like Lennon).
    Ref was crap! We should have had 2 blatant penalties (and owen was offside). Had it been the world cup, we would have been screaming for his head.
    Oh and I though that Theo Walcott did well for his first run out.

    negative slant-----> hargreaves crap, joe cole's diving was poor sportsmanship, not the 1st belarus goal.....owen looked unhappy coming off (injury?). Owen was not that sharp either. Lennon needs to improve final ball...ball given away carelessly...

    Rooney was injured on the 29th of April. Man Utd's Last match was on the 11th, meaning they wouldn't have trained that day. Therefore, between the 29th and 11th, there was a possibility for 11 days of matches or training, if we don't allow for any rest days or days off. Therefore he missed 12 days of the season more than most of the other England sqaud players. They would not have been training after the 11th, they would have most likely gone in to the club on the 12th for a formal end of season meeting with the coaching staff and the manager, and would have begun very light training with the rest of the England squad around the 20th. They wouldn't have trained today because of the England B match. therefore between now and his injury, Rooney has missed approximately 15 days of football compared to the rest of the squad. By the time the World Cup starts you can double that, and you've got about a months worth of training missed. A month isn't a long time to be out injured, especially when you have a player of Rooneys natural ability and technique. Players like him don't lose their touch in a month, nor do they lose their instincts. Ashley Cole is a prime example of this. He was injured for the best part of this season and has come back now for both Arsenal and England without so much as a blip in his form.

    Rooneys injury was not one which would effect his overall mobility, fitness, strength, or any other vital part of game. He broke the toe next to the little toe on the left of his foot. It was not a muscular injury, so once it is healed it is healed for good, it will not need strengthening or training as a muscle would. If Rooney can get phsycially fit, then there is no reason why he should not play a full part in the World Cup at whatever stage he is ready.

    May I enquire, what planet do you come from where tabloid reporting is gospel, you take the words of an alcoholic scotsman over the word of a qualified physician, and you presume to patronise people when arguing on a matter you appear to know very little about, other than what The Sun tells you to think?

    For a friendly, Belarus went it very hard on tackles. It was probably a good thing though - the youngsters would need to get used to some physical teams we might encounter.
    As you say, Lennon easily stood out today. He was single-handedly responsible for Belarus' sending off, and they couldn't really catch him. It's not easy for me to say, but he will probably go on to be one of the best midfielders in the premiership in a few years time, all the attributes are there.
    Walcott didn't really get into the game - he had about 3 touches in 30 mins. But the fierce 20 yard shot that he did manage to get away showed he might be one of the few Arsenal players that would be prepared to shoot from outside the penalty area.
    I think you're wrong on the Belarus' first goal. Having looked at the replay, I thought there was no way the striker could've done anything different. The kick went straight to him, and even if Carson was not injured, there was no way he could've recovered to save the ball. It is a shame for him though, looks like he's out of the WC.
    All in all, it was a disappointing England performance, even for a 'B' side.
