Re: International Matches Discussion Thread
Nearly forgot to mention that ITV's comms were verbally sucking off Hart the whole night despite the fact that he made several mistakes. He came out for a ball into his box early on and clearly gave a shout that it was his (hence the defender ducking) but got nowhere near it, almost leading to a goal for Sweden. What do the two dick heads in the booth say? 'Oh, great save by Hart in the midst of that!'. Yeah, nevermind the fact that he nearly cost us a goal after the recovery save because he was so stranded. Then later he comes out for a cross and completely misses his punch before the ball fortunately goes out for a goal kick, so the the knob head (Peter Drury? All those cunts sound the same to me) 'says well left by Hart'
It was only after Hart let in that tepid long range free kick that something was said by Townsend, who seemed rather reluctant to slag the keeper off. Thankfully Roy Keane isn't a fucking pussy, he told the truth of what actually happened, as did Gareth Southgate.
Seriously though, imagine if Rob Green or Scott Carson had performed like that, there would be a media witch hunt.
