C'mon England please!! Who's watching?
i thought we played well in parts. lots of plus points. can’t really understand why wilshere didn’t start ahead of lampard or wellbeck as he’s being playing out wide for arsenal, but as usual wellbeck did very well for england.Posted 4 years ago
thought walker was outstanding, pity he got booked but he looks like he could potentially be england’s best player for years to come. fantastic pace and always really positive.
i thought we were pacy, mobile and at the end of the day we’ve won a qualifier by 3 goals. anyone who thinks there’s anything negative in that thinks about football differently to me.deadlydarcyMember
Look on the bright side England fans. You could be RoI supporter and see your side simply swatted out of the way last night by admittedly, the best side in Europe at the moment (between them and Spain of course, but I’d rather watch Germany play any day). 🙁 Jeez, we’re having a ‘mare these last few years. Can’t see a way forward for the next set of qualifiers either. Meh.
Anyway, I shall be supporting my favourite yerpean side when it comes to Brazil. Deutschland uber alles!! 😀
And hoping that a) Les Cheating B’stards don’t qualify or b) if they do they give us another show of abject humiliation and embarrassment, flying home early on a charter plane like they did from South Africa. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
dd – i wonder if the new regs that the (english) fa are likely to enforce to help our national team will help the other british isles teams or will scotland/wales/ireland players be excluded along with other non english nationals ? be interesting to see how that plays out.
funnily enough i saaw a quote from walter winterbotton in the 50s bemoaning the amount of british isles others playing in england and how that affected his choices.Posted 4 years agodeadlydarcyMember
I can’t see clearly enough through the tears at the moment tm. 🙁 I’ll have a think about it when I’ve cheered up (maybe when France fail to qualify) 🙂
I hadn’t really thought about those rules tbh. I would think they’d make exceptions for the “Home Nations”, but whether RoI players would be included is probably moot right now. Given that they could be “English” up to U21 level, then declare for Ireland after a slap from their mammy…
I dunno…what are the new rules or have they not been carved in stone yet?Posted 4 years ago
nothing decided yet and ultimately nothing will happen that offends the sensibilities of those fighting for the champions league places.
but it should have a bearing on the other british (geographic sense obviously)isles teams. it would be very blinkered of the fa to ignore the massive influence that scotland/wales/ireland players have had on the english league – think of the liverpool and leeds sides of the 70s and 80s. the england team and league benefits massively from strong neighbours.
of course i could go off on one here as this crisis is directly linked to dark neo-liberal economic forces but i’ll resist 😉Posted 4 years ago
