still shouldn't be on the first team. And now he will be for the next five England games.
aside from his horrible finishing, he played well and caused all sorts of problems. yeah, it was only israel, but you need to beat teams like that to qualify.
owen was embarrassing, he only scored his goal because he didn't have to think about it. he's so hopelessly unfit and out of practice. all the best players were those picked on form rather than their names, what a surprise!
today was the best i've seen him play though. But, a striker who has serious problems scoring starting up front for England? No.
they play 4-3-3. Now that would make it more interesting.
it's a cliche but we've always looked the most convincing in 4-4-2. Basically, it's a solid formation that a team that doesn't spend much time together can quickly come to terms with. Obviously it requires 2 quality strikers, but 4-3-3 requires...
Although they seem to have trouble coming to terms with 4-4-2 most of the time. If coming to terms with it involves playing decent football anyway.
Who would you pick to play up front based on current form? I can't think of any English strikers doing well this season apart from possibly Heskey. Michael Chopra? Probably not!
and Crouch, if you stapled his hands to his waist. I would say Nugent but he's been subbed for most of this season.
but has Crouch even played this season? I think you're counting him as an automatic choice because of his dancing. I like Andy Johnson, but he hasn't been amazing so far this season. I know this because he's fucking up my fantasy team.
we're basically lost without Rooney aren't we.
don't you know anything about supporting England?
I had a leaflet about in once.
It said I had to put England Flags in every window of my car.
Having no car, I sadly realised I would not fit in...
rooney will be back soon and an automatic choice despite having about 1 good game for england ever.
than Crouch actually...
are fit again it'll be back to boring shite.
than Henry who was pityful today...
And to say Trezeguet and Benzema didn't play at all...
bring him back to Newcastle. It'll be goals goals goals.
Manager of Lens after Guy Roux left...
