Well our leading goal scorer sold, unknown quantity of a Spanish striker comes in...typical deadline day for Derby fans (though at least we signed a replacement, better than the Rasiak fiasco!)

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Forest sign 1 player all summer and thats only a 6 months loan, ok techinally we signed Majewski on a full time basis but he was in the squad last year anyway. We let go of more players

really going forward that one.

we have 6/7 strikers in our 25 man squad WHY

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I can scarcely believe Reading let Sigurdsson go. Then again, £6m for a 20-yr old with one good season under his belt? I'd bite Hoffenheim's hand off as well.

Not a bad window for us - Ledley gone (no one cares), McCormack sold for a small profit but again no one minds too much, Gerrard on loan to Hull solely to allow Olofinjana to play against them (that's my theory anyway). That does leave us with just 3 CBs, but Chris Riggot is likely to be signed up as a free agent so not too awful. And to cap it off, Bellamy, Olofinjana, Drinkwater and Naylor are all very signings. I'm optimistic... for now!

Can't believe you sold Rob Hulse to bloody QPR!

Oh, and how do Portsmouth still have a team if they sold another 2 players? The mind boggles. League One for them.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

To be honest I'd rather we'd sold Hulse to Blackpool, at least then he wasn't likely to score against us this season (FA cup aside). Rumour has it Hulse failed a medical at Cardiff a few weeks ago...which I don't put much store by cos surely you couldn't have paid a fee for him (unless it was a swap maybe?)

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Despite the win I am not convinved with 4-4-2, until the 2nd goals went in, we looked unable to break Bulgaria down for a good hour after until they just collasped. I expected a tougher test and the Swiss will provide it. I still feel 4-5-1 is needed for the tougher away fixture on Tuesday.

My Player Ratings...
Hart (8) - When call upon he made several solid saves and always looked in command, no mistakes at all. Even had time for some kick ups to cheer up the fans when the match went a bit dull.

Johnson (5) - Very poor going forward, never linked up well with Walcott. Very suspect at the back once again and will be the most likely way for Swiss to score against us on Tuesday.

Jagielka (7) - Very composed and looked like he was a 50 cap pro, never looked in trouble.

Dawson (6) - Looked a little shakier than his partner and made one poor mistake mis timing his jump but got better until his bad injury.

Cole (8) - Fantastic attacking performance from the full back, troubled his opponents all nigt long and was solid at the back.

Walcott (5.5) - Poor for ENG, looked in two minds at time and his lack of a footballing brain was shown again by poor timed runs and inability to beat the full back.

Barry (6) - Quiet game but did his job properly and look better with Stevie alongside him. Still needs to close down the gaps quicker though.

Gerrard (7) - Solid passing game, getting the ball around the pitch and was up n down the field proving protection for his defence and linking up for the attacks.

Milner (7) - Never stopped running and got better as the game went. I still feel he would be better in a central 5 midfield but he can attack and defend, very valuable.

Rooney (7) - His best overall performance in nearly 12 months for England but needs a goal, must get into the box quicker. Set up 2 goals and was involved in another, however agaisnt Swiss we must go 5 and Wayne made need to be dropped for Defoe.

Defoe (8) - 1st ENG hat trick and took his goals well though lucky with 2nd due to poor keeping I felt. However until last 25 minutes he was not really n game apart from his 1st goal but began to link up better with Wayne/Stevie in last third of match.

SUBS
Cahill (6) - Didn't have much to do and twice, him and Jag's ran in each others way. Look assured and could start tuesday, pacy too.

A.Johnson (7) - Did more in 20 minutes than Walcott did in 70. Took his goal well though poor keeping again and for me must start on Tuesday. A J.Cole in the making without doubt must be played to mature properly.

Young (N/A) - Pointless sub near end.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Poor French. The Italians nearly embarrassed themselves, as well. And the Portugese only managed a draw (with 8 goals, though) against Cyprus.

The German game was pretty dreadful, all in all. I guess, that's Euro qualifying games standard. Hopefully, the game against Azerbaijan will be better, but I'm skeptical. There are some good teams in our group, the Belgians weren't bad and are a rather young team, and Turkey under Guus Hiddink is definetely a co-favourite for the group victory.

Good to see England being back in shape. Joe Hart looks like a great goalie.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I had a good chuckle at France and Portugal. It helped take my mind off a frankly dispiriting loss to Montenegro and the shambolic performance from James Collins. I thought we had a good chance to have a go in this group, but it seems we probably don't. I'll just enjoy it in the belief that Toshack will surely leave once qualifying ends.

Just got back from the Saints match, we lost 2-0 to f**king Rochdale. It was dire.

I'd agree with the rest of your ratings, but in the latter part of the first half, I thought Walcott was making England's best runs. He disappeared later, and Capello was right to sub him off, but he wasn't that bad.

Johnson didn't have the best game, so we were weak on that side for most of the game anyway.

As for France:

You guys have the easiest qualifying group. You could at least make use of it.

We're giving an advantage to the other teams, it's the fair thing to do.
