England simply never play as a team.
Watching Georgia vs Scotland now. Scotland is retaining possession and playing like they are a unit.

I had a bet with some peeps in work today that Russia would win, they all called me a bitter Sheepshagger, but at least I've had the last laugh. Show me the money!! :junior:

All is forgiven for beating us in 2003, comrades (H)!!!!!!!!!!

Let's be honest though, if you draw to Macedonia at home and can't even manage a draw in Russia, you dont really deserve to go through.

Come on the Israel!!

We are in the sh*t... there is no doubt about it. But it's not total miracle needing time yet, I can see Russia slipping up in Israel.

Anyway, I guess better to go out now, than embarrass ourselves with another no-show if we do qualify. Two good things to come out of all this: McClaren will be gone and Paul Robinson can go f*ck himself. Yet another schoolboy error yesterday pushing the ball out right in front of him, I'm sick of the incompetent idiot.

Add to that, it was never a penalty... all in all very annoying.

We lost because our ass of a manager decided to completely change the system that had brought us victories in previous matches. If your team is winning games with a 4-4-2 system, why in blue hell do you change it - in the most important game!

To sum up we lost because we have an overawed permanent club number 2 in charge! But he's English, so that's all right then :o

With a bit of luck, he gets the boot and we finally get someone who picks the team on form and not who the media wants (the big names)

England has always been overrated. and today, the world is a better place because England and their hooligans will not destroy the Euros in 2008. its a great day for football and we must all celebrate!!!!

I was kind of lauhing when i heard an english commentator say that "England has the players but not the coach." please!!! lol . . . England does not even have top players. they are all overrated.

achieving what? really? the last time England won a major tournament was in 1966 - and thst even in dispute!

England is overrated and its time her fans begin to accept it.
