England 1 Brazil 1
Simple ball retention was beyond England last night. And its not as if Brazil bothered to close down or put pressure on the players in possession. England just didn't have a clue about how to work and opening. There best tactic was long balls into the arms of the Brazilian keeper.
And what was up with all that hard tackling? Was the world cup at stake.
Alan Smith! Se dat guy na footballer. Hawu! Ball control sef elude am.
Those who keep bleating on about Frank Lampard. I hope you saw your lamp shade of a hero reflected in his full glory last night. All you needed was a a nice dress and a shop window and he would have been right at home.
Poor Joe Cole tried so hard to put himself in the spotlight. Im step over reach step down at one point. As much as Mourinho is an Bottom its true what he says about Joe Cole and him playing to the gallery and for self glory.
If Beckham na saviour then na torture for England O. While he did no wrong, let's be honest, he has neither spark or the ability to break down a defence. Maybe he was trying to play it cool yesterday and not ruffle any feathers but that really is his normal game.
I am beginning to suspect that it was Maclaren who was pulling the strings and making a mess of things during Sven's doderring tenure. Sven was clearly too busy with the ladies to be bothered about footie never mind running a team.
And Maclaren had the gall to call it a good performance. Clearly he was watching the match on PS3!
