USA with the equalizer! We have a game now.

Great job by the keeper there. Altidore made it to the ball first but Kingston still managed to get the tackle clean and on the ball. So many times in that situation the attacking team wins the penalty. Brilliant goalkeeping.

Capello hasnt got a ******* clue what he's doing! I think he's been drunk this whole tournament!

Why play Gerard on the left and play Gareth Barry in the middle?! (Gareth Barry is incidently left footed, so if Capello is insistent on Barry playing, why not play him on the left and Gerard in the centre?)

Then, Lampard is about to take a freekick from just over 30 yards out. We all know he's going to shoot. Theres no need whatsoever to send Terry and Upson into the penalty area. Lampard is shootin, not crossing, we all know he's going to do that. Then when the ball breaks, the Germans counter and score because our two centre backs have run upfront to take a closer look at Lampard striking the ball!

Then when we need 3 goals, he takes Defoe off (one of 2 English players to have scored this world cup prior to the Germany game) and instead of bringing Crouch on (who has an eye for goal) he brings on Heskey who couldnt hit a brick wall in a prison cell!

Why the hell do we have a foreign manager anyway? Its the lesser footballing nations that need foreign managers because they dont have any national quality managers of their own.

**** off back to Italia, Capello. I dont want you hear anymore

The Lone Wolf: What separates England from the top teams is they dont have a top class defensive midfielder to shield the centre backs, regain possession of the ball and break up dangerous counters early. In modern football those players are so important. Gareth Barry just doesn't cut it. If England had a Macherano/Toulalan/Melo type player they could play like this:

James
Johnson - Terry - Upson - A.Cole
Milner - Gerrard - DM - Lampard - J.Cole
Rooney

Now thats a team that could do damage to anyone.

Fabio Capello has made so many bad calls as England boss. Leaving Ashley Young, Theo Walcott and in-form Darren Bent at home. All players who could give England a big lift, and do things on their own. Insisting on playing with Barry, who is clearly out of it, and never was that good in my opinion. Capello needs to go.

Completely agree with everything you say, and the team outlined is the strongest set-up that england could field (Settling for Barry in the Defensive Midfield, even though as you say he doesnt quite cut it)

I think if Lampards goal had been allowed it would have been a completely different game from that point onward, and it just screams for video technology (just as i'm typing this, Tevez scores from an offside position!)

England play a very predictable game, and lack flair and creativity. They also lack a passionate manager which is why i believe we need an English manager to inject some passion into the side.

Taking Heskey to the world cup and leaving Bent at home, when both players do the same job except Bent actually scores! Playing Gerard on the left is a travesty. And in my opinion the best goalkeeper of the 3 (Joe Hart) never got to play.

Like you say, Capello has to go!

I am no England fan or follower but I do know what I am talking about when I talk about soccer. Luckbox you mentioned they have no defensive midfielder but thats where your incorrect, Gareth Barry is an excellent defensive minded player (Although I have no clue what he was thinking on the last goal when he let Ozil blow right past him lol)

Other then that both of you are right on, Capello is a joke, but atleast hes better than Carlos Quieros who is the worst manager on earth... but then again when your squad has 0 goals against in 4 games you must be doing something right...

Barry is a good defensive midfielder at club level. He's not international standard, as he proved in this years World Cup. Although the entire England team were poor, Barry gave the ball away more than any other England player, and thats an absolute no-no for a quality defensive midfielder.

Ah well, 4 more years and we can let the hope soar again!
