    united managed to win where the others you mentioned including my team blackburn, failed to win, is because united have more quality. I think whether we like it or not chelsea are going to be a major force for some years to come just like united where previously. This is die to incredible strength in both the abilites if their players and the depth of their squad..

    And to the person that said money cant buy titles...obviously it can with the right management and setup. Chelsea dont bother me too much because its not like we are ready to challenge for the premiership.

    I'm all for it...

    But when someone pointed out the difference between the mens game and the womens game, (talking about liverpool F.c i think) is that not because of the difference in ability. I mean the top level of womens football seemed to me to be far inferior in ability to mens (only based on me watchin womens FA cup final once).

    Does anyone know how good the best female footballer in the world is? in comparison to a male professional? I have no idea but woudl be interested if anyone could shed some light on it.

    I knew Owen wouldcome good. He just had to. He has a knack of scoring against good teams!
    --------------
    That's how friendlies should be. It was a wicked game and a brilliant result. England and the Argies played well (although there was the usual dives fromArgies).
    I think we might or at least should be seeded now.

    Brilliant with a big capital B.

    Owen showed what he can do - virtually anonymous for 80 minutes and then suddenly makes the keeper make the great save and then 2 great headers. Fantastic.

    My player ratings:

    Robinson 7 - great saves.
    Young 7 - better going forward than in defence, experience will stop possible petulence.
    Ferdinand 7 - did well, but may have been partly at fault for first goal.
    Terry 6 - not one of hois best games, could have commanded defence better.
    Bridge 5 - you can see he hasn't played much for Chelsea this season - mainly to blame for their 1st goal and off the pace.
    Beckham 8 - always a threat, great passing, got England going.
    Lampard 7 - got into a lot of threatening positions, shame he couldn't provide end product.
    King 7 - got into tackles well, did what he was put in team for.
    Gerrard 8 - surprisingly effective on left hand side, eneded up playing right across midfield, and provided assist for Owen's 1st goal.
    Rooney 9 - skillfull, positive when going forward, England's biggest threat when going forward.
    Owen 8 - virtually anonymous for 80 minutes, then 2 goals at the end of the game to show just what he can do.

    Subs: Joe Cole (for King): 7 - always a threat, got involved and provided assist for winner.
    Crouch (for Young): 6 - didn't do much, good 1st touch though.
    Konchesky (for Bidge): 7 - did very well. The more experience he gets, the better. Good addition to the left flank.

    Great game, and very entertaining football. Rooney, Owen and Beckham showed their class, and Riquelme was imperious. But, it has to be said, our defense was poor. No leadership from either Terry or Ferdinand whatsoever, and bad positioning from every defender bar Young. Not happy about Gerrard playing 3 positions (wide left, defensive midfieder, right back) none of which being a familiar position. Yet he still outshone a certain someone (player of the year my arse) who couldn't play his way out of a paper bag!

    Meant 8 not 7.

    But not a 10 - he was hardly involved for the whole game.

    Well tbh he hardly touched the ball for 3/4 of the match. Although I would have rated him an 8 purely because he's given England a huge boost before the world cup.

    To be fair, Owen had buggar all put his way in terms of service for vast tracts, and he did reasonably while foraging. The fact of the matter is that without Owen's goals England would almost certainly have lost 2-1. Got to have been an 8, possibly an ambitious 9.

    Robinson 8
    Young 7
    Ferdinand 6
    Terry 5
    Bridge 5
    Beckham 8
    Lampard 6
    King 7
    Gerrard 8
    Rooney 9
    Owen 8½
