YEESSSSS!!!!!

 

Sturridge has got Hodgson and Hart out of jail there! Absolutely shocking goalkeeping for their goal.

 

Sterling's performance was disgraceful - he did what you wouldn't think was possible, by hiding in full view on a football pitch. He stuck as close to his marker as possible as the first-half went on, so that the ball wouldn't be given to him and he wouldn't have to get involved. Don't think we'll see him on the pitch again this tournament.

 

Rashford had a good cameo when he came on, and Dier was again impressive. Just as well we've got him in front of those centre-backs, who still don't inspire confidence IMO. How much stamina has Walker got to keep bombing up that right-hand side?! Incredible!

 

I maintain my pre-tournament prediction that we'll make the Quarters and then get beaten by the first half-decent team we come up against, who will just cut through our weak defence.

 

But then, if Hodgson keeps chucking all of his forwards on the pitch maybe we'll keep sneaking through 2-1 or 3-2 or 4-3.....!!!

We still believe.. That's better England, and once again Rooney was outstanding. I thought Kane was going be Englands main man this tournament, but unfortunately he's just not turned up. Sturridge is one selfish player, but ill forgive him now.:clap: The defence is a worry still though.

Depends what you mean by better.

 

The result certainly was, a crucial win, as we could have gone out with 3 drawn matches if Wales lost to Russia in their last game - and they would already have been trough, so not best to depend on that.

 

But the performance was not as good as against Russia, when England really should have won, this time it was barely deserved against a feisty Wales side who worked hard but apart from Bale lack any real quality. I hope Wales still get through though, their fans have been great.

 

Still,for England, it sort of levels itself out - but Slovakia could be a difficult game if they produce moments of brilliance like their 2 goals against Russia. I'#ll keep believing too Beasty, at least until we have to play Germany, France or Spain.

Thoroughly deserved win and it would have been much more comfortable had Hodgson picked the correct 11. Kane is clearly out of sorts and leggy while Sterling should be nowhere near the squad never mind starting games after his dog **** season at City. Some really good individual performances again from Walker and Dier, decent contributions from the likes of Rooney and Lallana, and the subs obviously made a massive difference in the end. Vardy has to start in place of Kane and Sturridge should come in for Sterling for the next game against Slovakia, but would anyone be surprised if Hodgson picks the exact same 11?

 

Hart 5

 

Walker 8

Smalling 7

Cahill 7

Rose 6

 

Dier 7

Rooney 7

Alli 7

 

Lallana 7 (first half was our best player before fading as usual)

Sterling 3

Kane 6

 

Subs:

 

Vardy 7

Sturridge 8

Rashford 7

Think what you like. There are many less mobile and less talented opponebts too, just watching a dire Ukrainian team, awful rubbish, as an example.

 

2 or 3 people really slated me for this - it's great when a fool shoots himself in the foot.

Russia are crap, it's their worst side for years. Slovakia and Wales will beat them and they will finish bottom .

 

Ukraine played well, unlucky not to go in 1-1 at half time , there two wingers look quality no wonder premier league sides are looking at them. Anybody who thinks differently must have coronation street or something.

 

 

Another master post.:laugh: Well done Northern Ireland, majestic show.

 

Not quite sure what coronation street means, but you've got about the same level of football judgement as a ferret.

I thought Ukraine were better than Russia, if limited.

 

And remember, they were playing the world champions, Germany, not the perennial over-paid underachievers called England.

 

Currently, on what we've seen, Germany and France are the best two sides. I sincerely hope I'm mistaken and England win it but I don't thibnk we are remotely in their class when we've got the ball. The Germans in particular are so smooth and fluent - like a well oiled Mercedes!

 

An improvement on a VW then?

Rooney completed more passes than Bale, Ramsey and Allen put together. Bale got lucky with his goal for which Hart should be given an assist. Bale spent more time in his own penalty area than England's. He's been left with a huge dollop of egg on hs face.

Skin of the teeth job by England, need a massive improvement to do well if we reach the KO phase. Too many England players appear lacking in confidence or look tired. Why Townsend isn't in the squad is crazy with out of form Sterling being the only forward player available to give width.

Who so pessimistic? We've got 4 points against two fairly decent sides, been the better team against both by a distance and also without everybody firing. Harry Kane hasn't turned up yet but if England stay in the competition for a while you would like to think that he will come good at some point as he's too good a player. There's much more to come from the likes of Alli too. France were poor against Albania until the last 5 minutes or so and Germany looked very ordinary against Poland this evening. There's no team to really fear going by performances yet and for me England will cause problems for any side - even more so if the correct 11 our picked by the manager!

We're practically in the knockout stage anyway due to third place rules so leas of the doom and gloom please. And we still can top the group with a win which we are capable of doing. If we win the group and Northern Ireland come third there's a chance of us meeting them in the last 16.
