Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Bent joins Terry on the injured list, which is a shame because this was his chance to nail down his place in the squad. Always bug me with English players we get so many injuries in training, never mind matches. Also Rio confirmed as Captain over Gerrard.

Well the team picks itself it seems...

Hart

G.Johnson Ferdinand Lescott Cole

A.Johnson Gerrard Barry Young

Rooney Crouch

Personally I would play Cahill over Lescott.

Good the more games England play without Terry the easier it'll be to ease him out of the picture for somone better!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Lescott is not better though

Personally I think the long term succesor will be Phil Jones who at 18 is a regular for Blackburn and England U21's. He's never looked out of his depth despite his age and with Big Sam as his manager you know he will only become a better defender...If theres one thing Sam can do its organise his players especially his defenders.

Rio/Jagks/Jones/Cahill/Dawson/Shawcross/Smalling

Maybe even Roger Johnson whose been brilliant at Birmingham since he joined last year and Ciaran Clark from Villa, whose also in the U21's.

could be better but could be alot worse.

Because the German game against Kazakhstan started so early and is over already (3-0, hooray! Even Gomez scored ) they are now showing Scotland vs. Spain. I'm rooting for the Scots.

Ah, thanks, I almost forgot Austria's playing today too.

Nice goal by Arnautovic again just now. I haven't seen an Austrian footballer with such a skill level in a long time, if ever.

Wow, Scotland equalises after already being 2 goals behind. Great atmosphere in the stadium, too.

Geez, it was 3-3 two minutes ago or so. Sounds like an entertaining game.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Austria has pretty decent chances in group A now, especially with Turkey having lost in Azerbaijan earlier today.

Two or three points vs Turkey and things are looking very good.

Also, three points clear of Belgium now and if you end up tied, direct results count, so those four away goals could become important as well if you draw vs Belgium at home.

2-0 against Luxembourg over here. Ok, it's only Luxembourg but I'm starting to forget the last world cup. The new team is interesting

Meh, sounds like a boring game for England, I didn't watch, but at least we didn't go the same way as Switzerland or Bulgaria to these Montenegro upstarts.

They are starting to worry me though. Coming from nowhere to top of our group is very worrying when they're supposed to be the worst team.

And Austria has one game less. Before the qualifying rounds started, I thought Turkey and Belgium were the co-contesters in this group, and now Austria has the best chances. It's still a long way to go, though.

ETA: Wow, due to violence and vandalism by the Serbian fans the game Italy vs. Serbia was aborted. Together with what happened during the gay pride parade in Belgrade on the weekend, way to go, Serbia.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Capello the guy with no plan B and only half a plan A...

Even when we win he pisses me off half of the time so you can imagine what I feel about him, his tactics and some of the players after that game. Lets start with how he refuses to let Gerrard loose and infact for the last 20 minutes had him playing deeper than Barry, ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME.

We couldn't break them down we needed to create space no the wing and a way to do that was to go 5 in midfield to draw more of their players into the centre but no he kept the same 4-4-2 for all 90 mins. He didn't even try to switch Young/Johnson around at times to confuse the full backs.

70 odd minutes to make a sub and this is why we have strikers like Owen in England becasue when there is little space you need someone like him to find it but Capello refuses to pick him but pick SWP who does not play for MAN CITY. Also why was Wilshire yanked from the U21's ? to sit on a bench

Hart - 6
G. Johnson - 5
Ferdinand - 6
Lescott - 6
Cole - 6
A.Johnson - 6
Barry - 5
Gerrard - 6
Young - 5
Rooney - 5
Crouch - 4

Thats how bad we were fucking digusting.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well didn't see the game but 0-0 doesn't strike me as a terrible result against a team who are obviously incredibly well diciplined and, lets not forget, have beaten their last three opponants is it? Evil Eyes, I'm not too worried about Montenegro, they seem to be a team based on a hard to break down defence more than anything, and even the games they've won have been by a single goal, so if nothing else we should be able to outscore them in the group overall. They might be a good bet for second place though.

And Jax, come on and calm down the hyperbole. 0-0 result against an inform team isn't fucking disgusting, getting hammered by Germany is disgusting! This doesn't even come close. Dissapointing perhaps but we didn't lose.
