bring back Lampard, at least he can score an easy chance.
In fact, I'd rather have Jermaine Jenas than that overratard
in that case.
Especially tight around the ass
Everyone gets them sometimes, no matter how good. But taking decisive chances like that are what shapes games, and sides, and surprise surprise, England fluffed it.
The cloying inevitability of us losing was the most depressing thing. This team is just cloaked in expectation, fear and failure.
he's no better in an England shirt. Give it to Mark Noble.
who shouldn't have played yesterday because he is not fit and it would have been wrong to change a winning team to accomodate him.
But I'm glad that Saint Gerrard is being exposed for the unreliable, poorly disciplined chump that he has always been for England.
that was when I started telling people he was shit and unreliable.
for Liverpool against Arsenal about a year later? Play Henry in with a terrific through ball..
but he is overrated.
pretty much every england midfielder is either overrated and can't live up to the hype and then becomes hideously underrated by the boo boys.
see lampard, he's not bad he's just not as good as everyone thought.
overrated to underrated and are rarely simply 'rated'.
like Owen is first and foremost an England player if that makes any sense. He's just a bit 'indie' and has his moments of reflection when he's a bit off colour. Let's not forget may 25 2005 ok? NEVER.
he was completely raped by kaka in the first half, only for Dietmar Hamaan to come on at half time and save the game for liverpool?
liverpool were shite in that match. they got lucky because milan went to sleep and then started panicking.
and I will defend him to the death. What he is is going through a rough patch at the moment, both for England and Liverpool.
I'll never forget the 20 points he earned me in my very first week of fantasy football. :')
Vastly overrated, yes.
If anyone can enlighten me as to any positive contribution he has made in an England shirt please do...I won't be holding my breath though.
against quality opposition he hasn't.
playing for a shit manager and a team with no pride. The players are kidding themselves if they all think they are the best in the world they beat some pish teams and everyone got excited. England have some great players but until they get a manager who will instill some pride back into playing for their country they will continue to fail.
has now played for four managers at international level and still achieved nothing. The law of averages says it cannot always be the manager.
Our players are hyped up to be something they clearly aren't, and are paid a king's ransom accordingly.
Great players win matches, tournaments, championships.
Apart from the odd knock-out cup here and there, Gerrard hasn't achieved any of that, so good player that he is, great player (and more importantly, TEAM player) he most certainly ain't.
