Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

How long do we have to put up with this loveless marriage, capello came out and said the players were tired. It had nothing to do with leaving Young on the bench then? and when things were bad you had Downing to call up instead of the very untired and tricky winger in Adam Johnson. Even Terry was building up Adam Johnson this week after training. England were so slow and the Wembley atmosphere was SHIT even before the Swiss scored.

Hart (4) - Was at fault for both goals along with others and looked sketchy all day long. Failed to follow the ball for the 1st goal and not at his near post for the 2nd goal.

G. Johnson (5) - Missed a great chance early on and then resorted to pathetic long balls and his typical average defending. Micah Richards and Martin Kelly are superior right backs.

Ferdinand (5.5) - Missed the ball for the 1st goal and looked like he has not gotten over his CL drubbing from Barca.

Terry (6) - Tried to marshal the defence but needs to push it up more, lack of pace always makes them drop too deep.

A.Cole (6) - Looked fine until he went of injured, pity for ENGLAND.

Walcott (4) - Apart from two runs, he was invisable for the rest of the match. How many poor showings does he have to make Capello? ENG tempo not fast enough for him like at Arsenal and it doesn't help he's not really a winger.

Parker (5) - Clearly not fit as shown in the final games for West Ham. Slow and easily outdone and really hes better than what he shown.

Lampard (5) - Scored a very poor penalty and then did nothing. Gerrard is better and should be dropped when Stevie returns.

Milner (5) - Looked better in the centre, which is his best position but still shown why hes' not in the Man City team anymore. Has lost all the promiise of 12 months ago sadly.

Bent (4) - Missed two great chances and the 2nd one I think had Redknapp shouting his missus would of scored that. Hes no Owen or Rooney sadly and should be a squad player NOT a first XI player when everyone else fit.

Baines (6) - Did a solid shift and looked decent going forward but nerves still plague him at this level.

Young (7) - Best ENG player though hes less effective on the left and should play on the right. Took his goal so well and troubled the swiss when he got the ball.

Downing (5) - Did nothing when he came on and just the fact he gets got ahead of Johnson is a joke in itself. Downing never has and never will be ENG class, simple as.

Come on Bulgaria ey do us a favour
