England vs Italy - Sunday 19:45

Recommended Posts

they're rushing their counterattacks leaving themselves out of room and requiring a bloody miracle to score versus an Italian defence.

Henderson to handball the winner in the last minute of extra time.

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.

Basically wiped out by injuries to Barry and Lampard

Pretty much, they are a big miss. England have only really used 15 players so far.

That's how to do it. Get the ball wide and aim some crosses at Carroll

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.

I'm pretty certain Balotelli will score the winner.

Lawro's punditry has to be arguably the worst out there

"A mis-hit cross from a West Ham reject". What a way to go.

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.

Don't know what England is playing, but it isn't football. Very pathetic defensive play. Do think they will win it though. A big pity imo, Italy deserves it so much more.

Used up his final ball against Sweden.

Got a feeling Hart would save a Mario penalty - even though he never saves them even in training.

Nobody seems to remember we once won a penalty shootout, against Spain in Euro 96.

The pundits and commentators would be slating any other team playing the way England are. Why play like your looking for pens when your notoriously bad at them?

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.
