Found 13th Jun 2010
After winding up a few yesterday a serious chat on how the individual players done yesterday.

I thought Milner, Wright-philips and Lampard were pretty awful.
Rooney wasn't in the game.

Best players on the park were Heskey and Johnson.

Good goal by Gerrard but then drifted out the game.

Lennon had a couple of good runs but then seemed to stop and pass the ball back when he got it.

Terry was okay but not a lot to do.
Green, one mistake which cost the team dear.

Just imagine if Capello was allowed to do his "Capello Index" that he wanted. Wow. That would have ended in tears.

Green - unconvincing.

Carragher - pace has gone, lucky to stay on pitch.

SWP - bottle job.

Lennon - Wasted.

Lennon is the only player who I'd bother with for the rest of the tournament. Everyone else still has something to offer.

If you watched the game, you would have seen he did that each time he had 2 defenders to beat. Without doubt he was following instructions and those instructions were spot on. Each time he had one player, we went for it and usually get passed. Two players and the ball get checked back. He also put Heskey Clean through (for him to mess up)

Carragher was dreadful. Wes Brown would have been a better replacement. Has good pace which Carragher does not have. Shame he isnt playing regularly.

Agree with op on players performances, i'd go with this team for the next game

GK - James
RB - Johnson
LB - Cole
CB - Terry
CB - Dawson
RM - Lennon
LM - Joe Cole
CM - Lampard
CM - Barry
AM (behind striker) - Gerrard
ST - Rooney

could put Cole behind Rooney but would mean playing somebody out of position on the left

England have good players but bad team.
How come?

4-4-1-1?

I would do 4-1-3-1-1...but, Slovenia and Algeria will park the bus in front of their own goal so I think you dont need a defensive midfielder and a more attacking midfielder is needed

They do not have a bad team.

because they are all the star players in seperate teams..

Be cause they all act like they are too good to be there imo. Players like Joe Cole and Lennon etc, the not so first team players see not to be too cool and really wanna impress.

Thats where all this 60 mins of passing it round the back comes from. Trying to act cool, calm and collected.

England need Owen Hargreaves.

With him England will not win the world cup.

Spain will win it. Germany looked awesome tonight, why on earth does not a team from England buy Klose or Lahm.

Do Lampard and Terry have the same problem at Chelsea?

We really had to carry them when we won the double last year:roll:

Right....so you play Heskey so that he can bring in the support from midfield to score goals, but you leave out one of the best goalscoring midfielders in the world.

Is this another symptom of the West Ham disease creeping out:thinking:

the usa defenders knew there was no point marking the slow tree, so england pumped the ball up to him, making the playing style not the way rooney likes it, he's a ball to feet guy.. long balls all night cos of heskey being up there is what ruled rooney out of the game.

out of interest who do you support?

No point comparing England to Germany-totally different domestic policies. Germans do not pay rediculous wages and so do not attract overseas stars. End result they have little success at club level but make up for it at international level.

Actually, Lamps's goalscoring record for England isn't that different (might actually be better).

And they can play together in the same team. Barry holds and you have Frank in his normal position with Gerrard on the left cutting in. You basically play the diamond in midfield and leave wingers out.

sad fact is England only have one good striker, gerrard should go upfront, lampard in CF position with 3 narrow midfielders, barry left, carrick mid, milner right, then the wingbacks could actually do their wingback jobs..

dont forget, barry is one of the few left footers in our side!

Gerrard isn't any less effective there (as shown in qualification). He plays quite centrally but when we're defending he covers the left-wing.
