Germany reached the World Cup final. Surely they're better than the USA?
true
I wouldn't say the Czech Republic were 2nd either.

No no no. We were talking about 3 defenders at the back, and you come up with a 4-3-3 formation! :p:
yea - what i was saying is that we have an extra man to place either in mid or up front

the more players up front england had against Holland, the more they were critised

I've been wanting England to play 3 at the back for ages (would solves the left hand side problem aswell with cole/bridge):

Would be awesome.
Same here. I think 3 at the back will work better as a unit than our current four. We have friendlies to experiment, so why not take advantage of it whilst we have it?

i take it the only choice would be 3-5-2 in that situation as 4-3-3 against Holland England didnt do so well
We could do 3-3-4 when desparately seeking a goal, which does sometimes happen with teams who usually play 4-3-3 to start with. Haven't seen 3-4-3 played formally ever on TV, no idea why.

England dont have a midfield competent enough in keeping posession of the ball. I know it's Sven we're talking about but 3 at the back would be even too suicidal for him, as good as Carra/Terry/Ferdinand are. Cant remember the last succesful team to play 3 at the back either, just doesn't work really because it always ends up as 5-3-2 (see Celtic in the CL).

Premiership debate four points for away win here.

Since I hear about certain changes to competitions for 'entertainment' reasons, why not this one too?

The table would have looked something like:

By my calculations it would have made no real difference.
Chelsea would have finished 15 points clear, rather than 12.
Bolton would have taken 5th, will Liverpool being 6th.
Norwich and Southampton would swap places on goal difference, but of course would both still be relegated.

Chelsea 110
Arsenal 95
Man U 87
Everton 67
Bolton 65
Liverpool 63
Middlesbrough 60
Man City 57
Tottenham 57
Villa 51
Charlton 50
Birmingham 48
Fulham 48
Newcastle 47
Blackburn 46
Portsmouth 41
West Brom 35
Palace 34
Southampton 33
Norwich 33

Waste of time to be honest, we'll be doing whatever they do in europe. It all sounds very nice, but there will be an even bigger gap between the top and bottom teams.

I haven't read the paper this morning, but are you sure you don't mean Lennart Johansson? He's going to tell UEFA that we should definitely be entered, but ultimately it's down to the conference.

yeah him, but its him and some other top guy...he says he wants it resolved and the rules changed within the next 10 days because it is such a significant issue. Also the times is saying that the committee would never go against the wishes of the top ppl

AND the times interviewed 7 of the committee pannel and they said they are going to vote to change the rule anyway!

Dunno if it's been mentioned.. but..

Everton linked to Parker, Forssell and Cudicini from Chelsea.. gee, imagine if that happened!

I can see Parker and Forssell, but not sure whether Cudicini would be prepared to leave..
