Although, I wouldnt be suprised at all to see us win 1-0 or sth, the way Sven Borin Erikson is talking.....
Almost.....2-0....plenty of chances, only 2 taken. Quite pathetic really.

yeah i hadn't watched the game yet ( i taped it) but i seen the highlights. gerrards volley was a bit of an odd one. it totally fooled the keeper though and becks looked clearly offside for his goal from what i saw but i'd have to watch it again. and what was with owen...it seemed he couldn't hit a cows arse with a banjo.( i find that saying quite amusing btw ).

oh well at least we won.

Yeah - the 3 points was the main thing I guess. Becks' goal was ok, he wasnt offside tho, u'll see when u watch - he did well with the goal actually. I shall praise him for once.
Rooney annoyed the fuck out of me tho. He played well during his time on the pitch - then was subbed late on. The crowd were chanting his name, all he had to do was smile and applaud as he went, but no. The stupid youth yanked his shirt out of his shorts, and said "fucks sake". With the tv cameras directly on him - and millions of fans watching.

Wayne - grow the fuck up. You played well. So u didnt score a goal - big deal. You contributed to an important win - that's the main thing.

It would be good for England and United if he didn't become another Cantona, well maybe its too early to talk about that.

I must say that even though i want England to qualify and go far at the world cup, it would only take one slip up against Poland and they may regret not banging in more that 6 goals in these two games. One slip up against Poland could mean having to play France, Holland, Czech, Ireland, Greece in the playoffs if they get a rough draw. Unless they have already decided which groups runners up play each other, which i haven't heard about. I dont mean to be negative, i just think England should be kicking themselves for not banging in more goals, they must set this right before Poland comes to England.

So Jose got his fine and touchline ban then. Basically - the fine is such a small amount of money - that's not gonna even bother him. But I can see him feeling pretty gutted deep down, that he's not gonna be stood at the bence for the 2 Munich games.

Apparently the group with the 'highest scoring runners-up' will also avoid the play-offs. I think we'll be ok. We can win the rest of the games easily, and maybe a draw with Poland will be enough to see us thru in the top spot.

Not been around much this week as I had long trips on Saturday and Wednesday, I should know better than to travel relatively long distances to follow England by now but still.
Could go off on all mighty rant but I'm not going to bother the only thing I will say is that I know of no team on earth where one incompetent man takes every single set piece. Of course Steven Gerrard or Frank lampard couldn't possibly be intrusted with the responsibility of taking a corner or a free kick at International level. I'd love to see the stats breakdown of how many goals from set pieces Chelsea and Liverpool have scored this season compared with Real Madrid. Mini rant over.
I'd better make sure I do better with this weeks Premier League scores. I seem to have predicted a lot of goals but I'm still learning.

Arsenal 3-1 Norwich
Birmingham 2-1 Tottenham
Charlton 1-0 Man City
C Palace 2-1 Middlesbrough
Fulham 2-0 Portsmouth
Liverpool 2-1 Bolton
Man Utd 1-0 Blackburn
Newcastle 2-0 Aston Villa
Southampton 1-3 Chelsea
West Brom 2-1 Everton
Sheff Wed 1-3 Tranmere

I think you got two spot on though, so well done you.
Blackburn comes as no surprise although I did think United would get a single goal. Blackburn are fast becoming the most hated side in the Premiership, they're violent, unpleasant (Savage and Dickov in the same side) and never go forward against the big teams.
United have to be wary of a repeat of last season. It's still half a million pounds a place. I fancy Liverpool even more for the final Champions League place but what about Newcastle? I think this sort of thing has been coming for ages, it's such a poorly run club.

I must update my sig. If Utd drop more points we may be able to win it at home against Arsenal I think! Otherwise it looks like it'll be at home against Fulham!
