I'd do Sven's job better than him :rolleyes:

England will not win Euro 2004 (and it kills me to say so). We are between average and second-tier.
arent we ranked 6th in the world or something atm? :rolleyes:

England aren't great but not that many good teams at the moment who can win it apart from France or italy.

England do that anyway, big deal. And I don't see your case, Wesley isn't that far worse than any other English central defender.
No he really is! Personally I think his a terrible defender! Supprised that over the years Old Fergie ain't released him on a free the way he plays sometimes!

You are very partisan aren't you. Lehmann ahead of Niemi?!

Brown terrible? I think I'll listen to the experts who all rate him, thanks.

He did actually say he'd consider it if he couldn't break into Brazil's team. But then he wouldn't play for us either, grade A donkey...

Portugal flatter to deceive. There goalie and defence are poor. Rui Costa overrated

I stick the blame firmly on Barthez for being the indecisive one. If Barthez had decided on something to do about the situation there would be no problem, but no signal was made to Brown or anything.

Brown could be a great defender, but sadly he always gets injured just as he's getting into a bit of form, then once he returns it always takes him a while to get good again. However he's very comfortable on the ball and what he lacks in strength and stature he makes up for in awareness and technique.

But if e.g. campbell had been in brown's shoes he would of cleared it and taken responsibility.

I don't think you know what your talking about Brown is dire usually, and the fact that he playing crap was one of the reasons why Man Utd conceeded so heavily at the start of the season...as he wasn't fulfiling his role in the team properly! I think that it would be ajoke if he made it into the squad...but hey they've let David James in..so who knows!

Lehmann has played some excellent football...its just his so erractic which is his downfall..and yes I agree an erractic goal keeper is not a good goal keeper..to be honest I don't know all that much about Niemi, but what I have seen, he was distinctley average! I think we need to think outside of the uk for a good goal keeper at the moment!

Holland are so good on paper. But it all goes wrong on the pitch.

With no call from a goalkeeper who just went in front of you without giving you a chance to do anything? Any defender would have been embarassed. Campbell would probably have pulled the player back or elbowed him in the face.

England will be foolishly written off too soon, i think we will probably draw 2 group games, and then thrash France, tis always the way.

Probably get to at least the semi-finals, England will win Euro 2004
