nope - covering someone as work and didnt realise there were internationals back then
oh well earning more £££ > the match
I think it'd be better to let him take us to the World Cup now. It's too late to change. But after the World Cup, since the next England manager "has to be English" McClaren is an obvious successor. Big Sam is good but i don't think so. Curbs?
Steve Mclaren has been Sven's second hand man and hasn't exactly done anything.
So was i. I hoped to catch the second half, then i realised it kicked of at 7, or sometime around then, so i missed it all
at least i dont miss the chelsea game on sunday, if it were saturday though i wouldnt be happy, working all day
while Beckham's talking, theres a song in the background, all i heard of it was " If only i could turn back time" Denmark's trying to rub it in our faces then
I know players can have bad matches, but 4-1 to Denmark? Although I was working and haven't seen the game, it seems to me that we severely lack a midfielder to cover the CHs, as Ferdinand and Terry are too inept to do this. Terry may get his arse kissed by the media, but I'm sure he'd be exposed at Chelsea minus Makalele. You should already know what I think about Ferdinand. I'm all for playing Carragher and King if, as I get the impression, the current two aren't getting their arses in gear. Of course, as I haven't seen the match, I could be completely mistaken. Either way, Gerrard or Lampard have to go.
Striker-wise, I think we've seen the reasons for Owen's inclusion over Defoe. He's a bright spark, but we need experience up front - especially considering what escapades Rooney gets up to. The awareness of Beckham-Owen/Gerrard-Owen are fully established.
Ultimately, this has to be mainly down to the manager not doing his homework, not putting his balls in the line, and not making the important decisions - other than how to spend his extortionate wage cheque.
Bryan Robson would be good IMO.
Just proves how there really aren't any decent candidates for the job.
he's just trying to cover his own back side
I think you can have him because he's not wanted by anyone else
he'll be your next manager mate when SAF gets sacked
hands off Jose - perhaps Benitez should be next England manager - could use that knock out competition experience to our advantage
Btw, how's Spud [Murphy] getting on?
Flo Po's back in training, and he's coming to get yers'.

Attacking wise the main problem was the lack of tempo and intent from England. It has always been Sven's style and it sux. They largely rely on moments of individual brillaince for their goals, which is not the way to go! They played the ball between defence for far too much of the game, without caring about getting the ball forward, ended up costing them 2 of their goals. I was also deeply dissapointed at how un-motivated the players were. This is directly the managers fault imo, he has to get the players fired up! The few who were motivated, Rooney for example, was clearly due to self motivation.
Came back from inter-railing round europe and saw an 1860 Munich game in the Allianz Arena while I was out there, was absolutely amazing!
