Many people had thought that that was what he had done anyways. By coming out with that, he might have caused himself more trouble. He should have kept quiet about it all. To be honest, I don't blame him for getting himself booked. He didn't go out to deliberately injure the player, but to deliberately foul him!

yeah. They actually had them in 2002 or 2003 as well, but I couldn't go as I didn't know about the trials.

I love football!!! Wish I could play in a team...I set one up at school for the U16s but then I turned 17 and couldnt play! Lol.
You can join one at uni. My year at school were so annoying. We had a chance of getting a team together, but we didn't get enough players. :mad: I just had to wait till uni, where I play more then I did before.

Nope, he said it. He said that people might not think that he was clever enough to do so, but he fouled because he knew that he was too injured to play on wed.

I'm female and I used to play football, for a long time too. I wish i could start it up again, but other than because i'm unfit now, i reckon i wouldn't really feel right playing it. I know its really stupid and pretty shallow, but girls football has a certain image about it being really manly and butch (donno if thats how you spell it). I know personally that its not like that, but a lot of people think it is. I really wish people didn't think like that (or i wish i could stop being so stupid ). doh!

at least i enjoy watching football! that keeps me going.

Trust me, I don't really know any players who I've played with who are like that.

It didn't do that badly to be honest.

Giggs slaughtered Neville pretty much every time he got the ball, but Wales were so pants that luckily didn't happen very often.

However, if we tried it against a side with decent wingers we would have serious problems. All three midfielders like to play through the centre, leaving us so badly exposed on the flanks, plus Cole and Neville cannot be expected to provide all the width since they're not actually playing as wing-backs.

I still say give 3-5-2 a go with Cole and Wright-Phillips as wing-backs, Lampard, Gerrard ( or Butt if he's bloody injured... again :rolleyes: ) and Beckham in the centre. We have 4 top class centre backs and any 3 of Terry, Campbell, King and Rio would be fine. Then Owen with Rooney sitting slightly behind.

This way you have the width, runners from the middle of the park, a link between midfield and attack in Becks and Lampard, plus the ability to switch to a more defensive formation with ease by pulling the wing-backs into conventional full-backs.

:confused: :confused: I thought everyone knew what soccer is! Its what British people mean by 'football'.

Can I ask what country you come from?
So FrisbeeFan, you ask what country we come from. Well I'll begin to indirectly answer your question in a series of hints (it's more fun, lol):

Hint 1: I go for the Matilda's. Hint 2: I'm thoroughly looking forward to daylight savings in a couple weeks Switchover time, haha. Hint 3: Plans to go up to the Gold Coast in November, try out a bit of surfing (great fun, but my QLD friends'll probably laugh at me, unco southerner from two borders south of them :rolleyes: up here just for holidays, got no idea. Hey let's take pics of her making a fool of herself to put up everywhere hhhaaa).

As for NDGAARONDI (he's cool, btw :cool: ), I dunno. Think he's from England? As far as I know he could be from anywhere, I never asked. It doesn't matter.

Anyhow, all I know what does matter is I'll have to change the title of this thread! It'll have to be called TSR girls/women's footie thread, better get to that now.

Yeah, don't worry about those people. It just reflects on them.

Good on you for playing, and you can still play!

He was being criticised before he 'came out' for a rash challenge, getting a needless yellow card. He decided to 'come out' and he's criticised for trying to do something for the good of the team. I don't like Beckham but I feel sorry for him in this situation as he could'nt win either way. IMO he did the right thing and the press should be congratulating him instead of getting all upset because he only spoke to the Guardian and not them.

becks has now apologised for deliberately getting booked: http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/....stm?display=1

i don't think this was necessary at all- it's done all the time, and most players would do it if they were in the same position, so what was the need for him to apologise?
