What must Carrick be thinking :D

Prob thinking he's a silly boy for telling Woy that he didn't wish to be considered as a backup if he wasn't in the main squad by right. Similar situation with Micah Richards iirc.

Because of the styles of play. Spain are horrible defensively so they have to keep the ball away from the other side...thus you have a match where there are a million boring passes that go nowhere with intention of wasting time..especially if they get a goal; the England style is to counterattack so there is a lot more action and attacking. IMO while the England style isnt nearly as 'technical', its a lot more fun to watch.

How can they be 'horrible defensively' with the number of clean sheets they've kept?

Just because they don't rely on having a load of 6'5" knuckle draggers at the back to form a human wall of flesh on the 18 yard line, doesn't mean they are incapable of defending. They just defend in a different manner than we've really been used to seeing.

Still can't decide whether or not balo is one of the most over hyped players of this generation or not.

I don't think. We have seen his talent tonight and he is only 21 remember. If he can improve that final part of his game he will be a real asset. He has also got a lot of maturing to do.

Playing for penalties - after all we're pretty good at them aren't we :lol:

Can't even begin to understand how gutted you guys have felt so many times. For the past 20+ years it has been a standing joke that England always looses on pens.
