So... Yet another LACKLUSTER ENGLAND performance......Your views??

Once again, Englands overpaid panzies are underperforming as usual, all dragging their feet expecting someone else to get the ball..

Getting really fed up of performances like this, even all the previous matches (andora etc) though they were wins, they were poor performances, no urgency, no flair, just nah, you get it, no, it's not mine... over and over again.

Beckham has been playing well I thought.

Ferdinand is being quite lazy, Rooney has had a few good touches.

Holland deserve the lead.

try being scottish!

To be expected. All thinking about Saturday/Sunday when the Prem kicks off again. Silly time to have a friendly. Sheesh. Who set that one up. On the other hand, Holland are punishing us and I guess they'll be looking forward to their own league (Italy/Spain leagues also) kicking off.
England must do better in the 2nd half.
Rio Ferdinands back pass was just the stuff of "clangers and bloopers Xmas DVD's" Sheer bobbins

despite ferdinand and barrys mistakes, Johnson is poor and making bad decisions all over the park, the guy needs taking off... very dissapointing..

Amazing....

England have a 100% record in qualifying playing some of the best football they have in years...

but two mistakes in what is essentially a PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY and some people go back to moaning about 'overpaid panzies'.

Only in England:roll:

I'm quite glad Johnson has gone to Liverpool and his performance so far tonight backs that up. He is quite good attacking and linking up with midfield but his shoddy defending certainly doesn't warrant his £18m price tag or whatever daft amount Liverpool paid for him.

Hopefully he will get better defensively for Liverpools sake as the season goes on.

As for that backpass by Ferdinand.... pathetic but would rather he did it in this game than for us in a crucial game this season.

It's like watching Brazil. :w00t:















Alan Brazil that is.

or irish or welsh

It's only a friendly :roll:

That's complete tosh dude,

The scores in previous games were not from great performances, but simply poor oposition.

always the same and seems there is no changing..

maybe ,in a weird way,englands qualifying group for the world cup is just TOO easy-not always a good thing.

The defence don't seem at all focussed. Schoolboy (or Gary Neville) errors by Barry and Ferdinand. Johnson's been awful. They should take a leaf out of Beckham's book and have a bit more pride in playing for England.

( I'm Welsh!! :oops:)

Bring on FIFA 2010, I'll show England how they should be playing.

Or maybe JFK should replace Capello.........

......ahem

Need a new striker instead of heskey.

Agreed, he's quite good at controlling the ball (chest) but just too old to be putting pressure on the defence and speed.

Can't understand why Capello has taken Beckham off, he was top. Fair enough with Barry.

WTF taken of beckham?

He should just give them the game instead.

Taking Beckham off is gonads, just politics if you ask me..

ooh sneijder coming on :p, hopefully he performs

Bring Becks home, the guy is a legend.

No Crouch in the squad? Amazing. Defoe's record is awful.

Wooooooo

I think he wants to give other players a go, to see what they're like.

It's almost like he's treating this game like a friendly:roll:

Oh, and the football England have been playing has been better then they have in years.

It's like you haven't actually watched any of the games, or you have and you don't know much about football.

The football we have played, regardless of opposition (that has included Ukraine and Croatia) ha had a better shape to it, the possession has been infinitely better and yet some people just want a moan.

Swapping Becks for SWP seems to have done the trick in attack. SWP is fairly terrifying the Dutch defence. Sadly for us Glen Johnson is fairly terrifying the England defence
