Re: International Matches Discussion Thread
Fuck sake, I was so close to going to that game but decided against it in the end due to money. UGHHHHHH.
Some thoughts on the players.
hart - no exceptional saves but looked solid.
johnson - awful first half, kept losing the ball. much better second half.
lescott - don't rate him but was brilliant tonight. has to start at CB.
jagielka - great performance. another player who has to start over terry.
cole - another faultless, consistent performance from englands best player.
parker - should be captain. best english player on the pitch by a mile. gives heart and soul for the cause.
lampard - awful first half, got himself in a good position for the goal in the second half.
jones - not a midfielder. offers nothing creatively. should be our starting CB alongside lescott.
walcott - looked our only attacking outlet in the first half. baffling substitution.
bent - awful game apart from his role in the goal.
milner - should not be playing out wide left. good performance, but more effective on the right or in centre mid.
rodwell - didn't do a lot after coming on.
johnson - didn't do a lot after coming on. should be starting.
welbeck - pretty anonymous. needs a chance from the start.
downing - wasted the ball every time he had it.
barry - unsurprisingly bad, but less mistakes than usual.
