Well I hope we can finally play the way we know we can tomorrow and get out the group,very,very dissapointing so far-we can't get any worse. Slovenia is now looking like the tough game as thye've scored more than anyone else.
The play was good and it was an enjoyable match to watch ...but still only one goal ...against pretty weak opposition.
Milner and sometimes Johnson do actually seem to be able to put a decent cross in occasionally, which is nice. I have actually been sitting here lamenting Beckhams absence, because at least he could have set up a couple of chances by putting the ball in roughly the right area.
All in all a good show last night and if they can keep it up AND CONTINUE TO IMPROVE and get a little luck, who knows how far we might get.
Bye, bye Italy
Well with France and Italy out hopefully not too many boring, stifled games
Have to admit though, they were really bad this time round.
The departure of Italy made me think (reminisce) about Italy (specifically Paolo Rossi) in 1982. Does anyone remember watching Paolo at the corner flag, surround by defenders, do some footy trickery and lay over all their heads and put the ball in the box
