I wish I was friends with Danny Dyer.
Joe Cole and Kerzhakov to score.
we just don't know any other scoreline at the mo
optimistic maybe, but I don't think much of Russia
of just how wrong all dis posts are?
but mainly, england = :((((
on reflection, I still don't think much of Russia. I just think even less of England.
Shots on target : 0-0

Lescott to score first
Damn you Russia and your impudent border police!
england limp into the european championship and begin to prepare to dash the hopes of a nation once more with their trademark fame not form method of squad selection resulting in pampered mediawhores playing without an ounce of motivation instead of someone who might put in a bit of effort
turgid, "gutsy performance", Gerrard etc. etc.
I've got a feeling it'll be a dull game.
Croatia is gonna be a hardish game.
I've got a feeling McLaren is going for qualification today, rather than taking a draw.
Croatia should have already qualified by that game and it will be at home.
Russia hit post early on
Lescott scores a header from a corner
Gerrard does little whilst Barry peforms well
Shaun Wright-Phillips makes way for Lampard, pushing Gerrard out wide
Lampard scores goal with 10 minutes to go
England cut to 5-1 by Ladbrokes to win Euro 2008
Lescot at 14/1 to score anytime.
I have wrapped all my work up to make sure I can watch it properly. Hooray.
is going to replace Owen after 51 minutes and then Downing is going to replace Rooney after 57 minutes to save him getting red carded, leaving us Joe Cole and Stevie G marauding up front. Lampard will take pot shots from anything between 18-35 yards that will end up as new Russian Satelleites. This in turn will prompt a new space race between Russia, America and Uganda the result of which I just can't fathom from this data.
to watch the match but instead deduce the result from the inevitable pun-laden Sun headline.
I'm predicting "SPLASTICS"
Come on, Rupert. Give us a job.
England employ Stalin-ing tactics
Le-NINE goal thriller!
From Russia with Love
England's qualification hopes put on Ice.
A real Mos-Cow of a peformance.
4.00pm right ?
Then we get tortured by 9 months of ranting in the press.
lescott on the left.
barry and gerrard in midfield - lampard on the bench.
where I can watch the game online? I'm not high enough on the corporate ladder to have a TV in my office
if that isn't working i think you can pay (about 2 quid) for a stream from uefa.com
England: Robinson, Richards, Ferdinand, Campbell, Lescott, Wright-Phillips, Gerrard, Barry, Cole, Rooney, Owen. Subs: James, Shorey, Luke Young, Lampard, Neville, Downing, Crouch.
Shit, Ace, Cunt, Hero, Hero, Good bloke, Cunt, Uber Hero, Cheat, Good bloke, Good bloke.
Subs: Good bloke, Good bloke, WTF IS HE DOING THERE?, Cunt, Good bloke, WTF IS HE DOING THERE?, Hero.
campbell is and always will be an über cunt (AND GAY!!!!), Gareth barry is a good player but a bit of a dickhead.

Subs: Shit, ????, ???, ????, ??, Good bloke, Wanker
'1556: I think England's national anthem has been played. It was drowned out by booing from the Russian fans.'
I forgot to put my bet on Lescott to score first!
If he does, I'll cry.
you can have 25p if he scores.
It will be very high scoring
Tottenham 4 vs Norwich 14
worst night of my gaming life.
What does this have to do with England vs Prussia?
I wouldn't be talking to anyone!!
Let's say 6.30-7.45 and you have a deal. Then you can bring summat over for your dinner if you like.
what time summat is finishing work
when you're more sure then let me know.
I'm friends with him on facebook
1601: The broadcasting lines from Moscow are down, meaning Alan Green and chums are commentating on 5live via telephone. It's like the 1970s all over again. Brilliant.
this time they've actually got someone who's on England's side, albeit ironically
That dive was HORRENDOUS
considering who made the challenge.
at this pitch. Why does everyone look 9ft tall??
Russia have hit the post
absolutley sick strike
and I saved a fiver not backing Lescott
" Russia win two corners in quick succession, the second of which is punched in rather alarming fashion by Paul Robinson. Good defending by England though."
on what I believe to be a russian channel. I have nothing to add about the game, but the adverts at half time have been magic so far. I can't say I understand them, or what they're for, but I'm fairly certain they're all at least a bit racist/sexist/both.
Probably not. Oh bugger, now we're on a knife edge.
and Rooney got a yellow as well which isn't really surprising. A draw isn't the end of the world.
didn't give him enough credit.
paul robinson parries it straight to him. he wasnt at full strength, it wasnt struck with that much venom, absolute shambles
looks like we're all going to become Scottish for the summer next year then :(
Carson should be first choice.
what are the chances of him grabbing an equaliser?
DONT BRING CROUCH ON WONT SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN
ROFL! He is a clutch player. He wont bottle it!
SWITCH ATTACKING STYLE TO HOOFING IT UP THE PITCH AT HIM, AFTER ALL THATS WORKED BEFORE MANY TIMES IN INTERNATIONAL SITUATIONS
and andorra away
i don't think i could stand it if scotland went through but england didn't
I'm going to see a poorly translated humorously voiced steve mclaren resigning.
We rode our luck in the first half
Russia came out in the 2nd and put us under real pressure before forcing a penalty which was outside the box (just)...
Then we lost our heads and conceded another by panicing
In no small part thanks to Paul Robinson. Please, fuck off.
can we please use Paul Robinson as a scapegoat? He really needs to pack up his regretful skinhead face, go away and never come back
careers then i will be very pissed off
don't really have the energy to blame anyone right now, just the thought of nothing to look forward to england-wise at the end of the season. Ugh..
"Russia had nothing to lose, if they lost they'd be out of european championship".
the end for a certain Spanish linesman.
So so many bad decisions.
the only possible silver lining in this is Jose taking over, if thats the case then i would be happy not to qualify
The fact is that it wasn't a penalty. The linesman was what? 10 feet away....
He should definitely have his international career called into doubt.
This is what I hate about watching England. If they had been played off the pitch and beaten by 3 goals I could be sanguine about it.
But to lose cos of bad officiating galls...
Fact is they should have killed the game off in the first half. This was a quintessential England loss, played well, went ahead, lost focus and bottled.
But Russia won because of a bad decision by a linesman.
and we didnt lse because of that, we lost becuase gerrard cant score from 6 yards and robinson still hasnt got the grasp of punching it out of danger
basically led to the panic which led to the second goal.
Russia probably deserved a draw.
But they won cos of a bad decision.
Rooney was onside I thought...
should be held to higher standards than free kicks 35 yards out...
But that isn't really a fair comparison.
Freekicks often seem to go either way...
But Penalties should be held to much higher standards, and to make it worse it wasn't a dive, it was a foul several feet outside the area. It was a terrible decision...
with players from the championship
at least they know their place. no silly ideas above their station like *some* teams
the current side is a bunch of losers and nearly men who'll never amount to anything as an international side.
but they could start by not playing like a side who would be entrenched deeply into the midtable netherworld if they were a premier league side.
Argentina haven't won for 21 years.
Germany haven't for 11
The above are also similarly bad.
a better side though does it?
But it doesn't make them as bad as Wales.
but they still suck
as do scotland (now) because they're being beaten by georgia(!) and they've got a fucking child in goal. bloody hell.
Cos their fans are usually such pricks about England...
burnt their houses, raped their women and ruled them with cruelty and brutality a few hundred years ago. obviously.
profited ruthlessly from the arrangement...
I'm actually renouncing my citizenship.
I want to be Faroese. HIGH standard of living and NO expectations of their football team.
my plan to create a more multicultural world is on the up
There was no shape to the back four at all, and whenever we managed to get hold of the ball back there we just spanked it clear, Sunday league style
I know Terry was out, but surely a 70-capped, 32 year old Sol Campbell can slot in there with the minimum of fuss?
I know it's all well and good saying this now, but I would've started Phil Neville at left back (I've stuck up for him more than once on here in the past, fact fans). Why bring an inexperienced Lescott in for such a crunch game, in such a hostile atmosphere? I'd also put Gary Neville straight back in at right back when he's fit too. No matter how good Richards has looked up to this point, he looked out of his depth tonight and international football isn't about blooding youth, it's about playing your best experienced players in their best position
It pains me to say this, but Rio Ferdinand was the only person to come out of that defensive display with any credit - he was the only one willing to get the ball down and try and compose things
But then so was everybody else. Every time a ball was knocked up in the air you had about four England players within two square yards underneath it
There was no organisation at the back at all, even when we were 1-0 up
that is all.
really really bad
No home nations there...
Oh well, at least Spurs are doing well this season.
I'm more confused because BBC news at Euston station announced that England had won.
Wasn't it just an arbitrary and shit decision by the ref?
And congratulations to Gerrard, finally exposed as a useless bottling cunt.
But surely the linesman should have seen it...
hello, boring summer 2008.
