Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

As long as Terry and that other slow as shit defender stay out of the team England should be fine. You can't have slow defenders at international level. How no-one has realised this after the Germany match is beyond me. How Ancelotti could watch the footage of Terry being embarassed time and time again by faster and fitter strikers and still keep his position and wages at Chelsea is for me one of my personal seven wonders of the world.

^ Because he's English, the press hype him up ridiculously, he's very good, but sometimes he's talked about as world class which is a tad laughable.

Andy Gray is even more laughable. 32 minutes into the Arsenal game last weekend he passionately proclaims: "This team just can't function without Frank Lampard." 60 minutes later Chelsea are 2-0 winners in a match they could have easily won by 5 or 6.

We have two tough games coming up against Russia at home and Slovakia away.
Offer me 4 points now and I'd bite your hand off If we could scrape a win tonight and a draw against Slovakia, I think we'd be well on our way to qualifying.

To be fair, I think a lot of people have. If you watch shows like Sunday Supplement, the top journalists have said that they shouldn't come back in and play at Euro 2012 if we get there. Jagielka has to stay in, I said that the other day in here and mentioned how Terry's flaws got exposed at the World Cup. The only problem we have is that without Dawson, there's no other obvious choice to play alongside Jagielka. Richards & Cahill are okay, but are they going to do a better job than Rio or Terry? I'm not sure, and I'm not in favour of seeing either of them get back in.

Yeah Young's in. He might even get the chance to start with Milner suspended and Walcott injured. Personally I'd like to see Adam Johnson on the left with Young on the right.

Edit: I hope this is the team we put out.

Hart
Johnson Ferdinand Jagielka Cole
Young Gerrard Barry Johnson
Bent Rooney

Japan beats Argentina 1-0. It was a full strength Argentina too.


Spain/Lithuania and Germany/Turkey today are interesting games.

Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

Spain will destroy Lithuania. Czech Republic tonight, a side who certainly aren't the same as what they were at Euro 2004 but i'd still put money on that they're as good if not better than Scotland. I'd happily take a point from the next two games right now. Kenny Miller apparently not starting after 10 goals in 6 games is well? ehh.

It's because he's shit. He never scored many goals this side of the border. You just have to look at Kris Boyd to see how much scoring goals in Scotland means nothing. He's scored just one in the Championship for Boro. Scoring goals like Miller has in the SPL doesn't count for anything, and that could be why he's been left out.

I hope that doesn't come across as being harsh Jamie, but it's true.

Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

Fearful for tonight. The Russians have quality and I think they could expose us. Let's just hope for another ROCKSOLID Richard Dunne performance and a Kevin Doyle wonder goal.

I'm already breaking out in a cold sweat at the thought of Arshavin running at Klbane.
Oh Jesus, help us please
