Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Ahem, for anyone else interested, an under strength Nigeria (barely) managed to beat South Africa 1-0 in our world cup qualifier, we're currently sitting pretty atop our goup with 15 points, haven't even conceded a goal yet.

To be fair though the other two teams in the group are Sierra Leone and Equitorial Guinea

Based on our performance in the Olympics and the fact that we actually have a somewhat disciplined squad this time around I've got modest hopes for us.

Terry and Ferdinand are decent players individually, but together, just doesn't really work.
I think it's because both players are hugely overrated, which isn't surprising considering they are English. They are certainly decent players, but their reputations are built on the partnerships they have forged with Vidic and Carvalho, who tend to cover up their mistakes and deficiencies at club level. Terry is prone to rash tackles and has very poor positional sense, but Carvalho's pace and ability to read the game usually covers for this. For a tall guy, Ferdinand isn't great in the air, and is prone to laziness and concentration lapses. He is still probably the best option England have a centre half, but he needs someone who isn't Terry alongside him. When he played with Sol Campbell he used to play the ball out of defence well, but he seems to have stopped bothering these days.

Everyone knows it should be spelt "Ingerlund".

Clearly some kind of organised group. I reckon Bradley Wright-Phillips is behind it.

On a similar note, Sergei Rebrov has got some advice for Roman Pavlyuchenko.

For anyone who can't watch the game live, Setanta has just announced that they will be showing free highlights later tonight. Good PR but it won't solve the problem that most people DO not want it having exclusive rights to ENG since its an Irish broadcaster.

Also apparantly not everyone is switching over to them in the numbers they were hoping for.

My guess? England 1 Croatia 2.

Only giving England a goal because I'm feeling charitable.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

WALES lost 2-1 to Russia earlier. They put up a hell of a fight from what I saw. I doubt they can qualify but they're certainly not going to the pushovers I often expect them to be...

I'm vaguely excited for this ENGLAND game. 5 Live will bring the joy the hell with Setanta.

Why is it a question of nationality? It's not Sultana's fault that they outbid the BBC.

Walcott's just scored. No, I can't believe it, and nor can Alan Green.
