How long will the fragile Rooney/Crouch axis hold up?

Taking four strikers, two of whom weren't fit in the first place and one that hasn't even played a minute of top flight league football was a massive gamble at best and utter idiocy at worst.
Agreed. It still defies belief that Sven thought taking 4 strikers was going to be ok. He's had his hand forced and now look at the situation. Rooney might be our best player but he needs another good striker up there with him and most of the referee's at this tournament give fouls against Crouch every time he goes up and wins a header.

Crouch and Rooney have hardly played together which doesn't bode well. However, with all due respect, beating Equador should be a formality so they have got plenty of time on the training ground to try and work well and link up together.

if sven ever needed a excuse to play 5 in midfield here's his chance , that ay carrick can play holding role in midfield we have always wanted as well as keeping lamp and gerrard.

4-5-1

Yeah i was thinking about a 5 man midfield earlier today. Perhaps Lampard could get further forward because at the moment he isn't contributing anything to our team expect a couple of 20 yard shots per match that keepers have no trouble dealing with.

Argentina - Netherlands is coming. In less than 2 hours.



After watching Portugal - Mexico, I think that Argentina needs to win the group and face Mexico on Saturday. Portugal did not do much, but saved several players and still managed to beat Mexico.

I Miss Robben on this game . It's clear that the right side of def of Arg is the weakest , if he was on this game .... wow , would be interesting.

I remember that after the 6-0 , we were sayin that Serbia was a completely fucked up team , in every way and still ..... no way Argentina was perfect , best team and all ..... and now...

- Serbia lost to everyone , I repeat everyone beat Serbia

And now I'm still looking for Argentina's promised another rain of goals .... Detail Holland without 5 of it's main players , includin Robben , And Argentina played with it's best strike .... HHHmmm . Why Can't I help feeling that Argentinians feel a relief that the wont face Portugal ? This is all very interesting ..... a lot .

Now I kind start to like and understand Brazil's startegy .

What an absolutely shameful performance by Argentina and Holland. So ridiculously boring. And this is the World Cup. The tournament should be restructured in some way in order to avoid boring matches like this.

Argentina will easily beat Mexico.

Portugal and Holland might end with penalties.

Although I'm an England supporter I'm surprised so many people think England will easily defeat Ecuador. Sure Ecuador lost 3-0 to Germany yesterday but they benched 5 of their best players (they probably wanted to play England lol!) and they beat both Argentina AND Brazil in the qualifying rounds...(granted, that was at a different altitude!)

I hope I don't jinx England but I might just put a bet on Ecuador - that way I win no matter who loses!
