England obviously won't be a favourite, but once you are in such a tournament, anything's possible - just look at Greece or Uruguay.

Am sorry we haven't met before, Hi my name is "England" we flop at major tournments . The future is not too shabby though IMO because they are some very good players comng together and I look forward to some attacking style/possesion football under Harry Redknapp who can translate his spurs style onto ENG but we have a better defence I look at the players after 2012 and it gives me a reason not to lose all hope...

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

There's been great players coming through for over a decade. We don't need great players we need a half decent English manager who'll build a team (not just throw all the best players together irrespective of whether they can play together) and we need the English media and populace to lower their expectations!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

So now we know 12 of the 16 teams...

POLAND
UKRAINE
SPAIN
HOLLAND

GERMANY
ENGLAND
FRANCE
ITALY

DENMARK
GREECE
RUSSIA
SWEDEN

Thats also the expected pot order though pot 3 might change after the playoffs that contain...

Portugal *
Croatia *
Turkey *
Ireland
Czech Republic
Montenegro *
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Estonia

The awful seeded system returns for the playoffs (* = my guess for the seeded teams due to FIFA rankings).

So no Rooney for the group stage then?

Should we even take him?

Bloody muppet!

It should of been 2 games, if this was Ronaldo, Snejider etc they would get off lighter. It all depends on how hard the group is and form of Rooney that wil probably decide it.

3 games is a hard penalty, but fuck Rooney, England will be better off without depending on him. Rooney has never performed for the team when they really needed it anyway. Americans would call him a choker.

Trouble is, either you leave him at home and risk the ire of the media/fans when we're inevitable knocked out, or you take him and are faced with an impossible situation if we're actually playing well without him. Do you bring him back for the knock out stages or not?

It could be a huge positive. I still remember 2002 when Joe Cole's injury forced Erikson to play Trevor Sinclair on the left, and suddenly we looked a more balanced team, even though he wasn't the most talented option.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well went to the game Saturday. Bit of an odd one. We were five minutes late and so missed Derby's goal, and maybe because of that the game seemed a bit lifeless until Southampton equalised, when it livened up a bit. They're a good side, but whilst you could see the goal coming I still thought the game had more goals in it, and certainly the last ten minutes or so I thought if anyone was going to snatch a win it'd be us.

I think the trouble is we sat back somewhat after we scored...of course in hindsight that might have been a wise course given we were playing top of the table. Hard to tell really, but we never seemed overawed by them.

Another loss for Forest but I'm guessing Cotterill wouldn't have had much chance to make an impact yet. Another loss for Leicester as well. Sven's spent a lot of money but they aren't pulling up too many trees yet.

Forest didn't play that bad and we should of got a point but our finishing is pathetic at the moment. However not playing Miller/Derbyshire on the fucking wing might help that situation

Well Derbyshire isn't an out and out winger is he? I always remembered him as an attacking midfielder come striker? Miller definitely is a centre forward though.

Derbyshire is a goal poacher, while Miller is your old style number 9. They could be a great duo but it helps to have a midfield with some creativity.

Injuries and lack of playing time at Blackburn did him no good and then he started so well at Olympicaos until injury hit him again. I remember watching him for the U21's and he always looked a good player but hes not going to create his own goals that sure unlike Miller probably can.

eta: and it's 6, wow, incredible.
