Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

1 point still top but no guts or attacking threat

My Ratings...
Hart (6) - LUCKY not to give away a penalty though some decent punches and no spills but needs a full 100% error free game to gain ENG fans confidence back

Walker (5.5) - Caught out a few times and offered little going forward. Another player lucky not to give away a penalty.

Cahill (7) - Much better display from Gary and made some crucial tackles/interceptions

Jagielka (6.5) - Solid but Cahill had to cover for him once or twice when he was standing still watching and not reacting to loose balls around the goal area.

Cole (7) - A typical solid virtually error free game at the back but his age showing as going forward he offers little compared to Baines.

Walcott (6) - Could of scored early on but did his normal act of dissapering as the game goes on. How much longer must we suffer with this Striker playing on the wing, DOES NOT stretch or pressure teams enough over 90 minutes.

Gerrard (6) - Shielded the defence best he could but lucky not to let Ukraine score when he misjudged a cross.

Lampard (5.5) - Played deep to offer some protection for the back 4 but so many misplaced passes and wasted a great chance to score late on.

Wilshere (4) - Worst game so far for ENG with bad pass after bad pass. Playing as most advanced midfielder, which does not suit him needs to be the playmaker with someone else making the runs into the box with 1 holding player not 2 behind him.

Milner (6) - Typical hard working performance, protected the left side with Cole but nothing going forward. Decent crosser at times in his career but made no attempt at trying any in this game

Lambert (5.5) - some decent hold up play in the 1st half but was wasted over the game. Great in the air but no crosses played to him and left isolated up front.

SUBS...
Young (5) - First touch of a donkey should not be anywhere near the ENG squad at the moment.

Cleverley (N/A) - Came on too late
