Im an England fan, and although we won, im not convinced, we miss Rooney so much, Lampard didnt get into the game, Gerrard although he scored didnt do much else during the game, Hargreaves is a joke, get Carrick in there if we want a holding midfielder, and no-one would pass to Walcott when he came on, which tells me the team doesnt think he can do it internationally, plusses though J. Cole looked top class tonight and Crouch who i dont rate at all, had a good game.

based on the radio coverage i listened to, the 1st half in the Eng game was awful. 2nd half was better..Beckham should have reminded people why he is in the team after his 2 assists today. and i think Crouch did well when he came on.




did anyone watch Germany vs Japan? although it finished 2-2, they had a report on bbc radio on it while it was 2-0 to Japan in the 2nd half & said Germany didn't look good...

I watched bits of Costa Rica X Czech , Brazil X Lucernia , and 30 min of England . What I've seen , this Gerrard , didnt know him , altough he missed the PK , he's pretty good. England has some good passing , the mf of course is good as well. But the thing is , they still rely a lot in the air game .

Bout Jap X Ger , tough didnt watch , heard Japan was much superior , and those 2 goals wow . For a team which had probs with the attacks , that really impressed me.

Lampard missed the PK, not Gerrard.

Yeah now I got confused with all those names of English MF , yeah , watching too much footy Lampard was the one that got the PK , and kicked it ..... Gerrard is the guy , that was the closest guy to the attack , the guy that was coming from behind . Anyway the thing is , my comment about Lampard remains.

I was actually reviewing the list of top teams and their coaches, and this is what I found...

Brazil... Brazilian coach
Germany... German coach
Argentina... Argentine coach
Italy... Italian coach
Netherlands... Dutch coach
France... French coach
Spain... Spanish coach

So it would seem as all of the top teams were able to find a strategist that was born in their own country.

But, wait, there is an exception to this rule...

England... SWEDISH coach.

So, are you telling me, that England, the land that created football, could not find an English coach to guide their squad? And that they had to resort to Sweden? A country with no history of football and, obviously, no World Cups?

I have to say... this has to feel a little bit embarassing.

This was discussed at length by all the english media 5 or 6 years ago when he arrived. does it matter where the coach comes from if he's the right man for the job? Obviously i'd rather he be english but in the context of things i'd rather have a good swedish coach than an incompetant english coach. our last manager was kevin keegan.

with him we didn't even get out of the group stages at euro 2000.

then sven comes and at his first tournament he gets us to the world cup quarter finals only to be beaten by the future champions, Brazil.

Plus our next manager is going to be english

Not really. I can only understand not having a local coach in countries without a football tradition and necessary resources, such as Ivory Coast, Angola or Iran.

In England, I just do not see the justification. As a matter of fact, FIFA should ban foreign coaches in countries that have access to local coaches.

And, finally, arent you concerned when you play Sweden, Erikksons homeland?

BTW, on another note... Messi = Diego

yeah we should appoint Englishmen, like Keegan & Hoddle

of course i'd prefer to have an English manager of England, (and we will after this WC). but i'd rather have the best person availible when the job is vacant, regardless of where he's from.

Hmmm, Portugal is not a "top" team. Until proven otherwise.
