England vs Italy - Sunday 19:45

Recommended Posts

Yes, the man is a dinosaur. He plays negative, horrible football and should not be anywhere near the england team.

When we are trying to revamp the coaching and development of players what signal does it send out when we employ such a backward thinking neanderthal to our top job.

This is the longest spell that he will have to work with the players for the next two years so I would say this is a fair barometer of how we are going to play especially given the garbage he was spouting at the press conference today about possession.

From what Carragher has been writing and saying and given that he has a direct line into the camp thru Gerrard it sounds the same as it was at liverpool. No wonder the players had none of it, can you imagine being Torres going from playing in THAT spansih team to listening to some clueless berk prattle on about getting everyone behind the ball and playing in straight lines with no flair or movement :D

Again, all assumption based on one player's comments. Because players never hold grudges.

Because players never tell the truth..........

I am much more willing to listen to players who have experience of playing for him than some of the cretinous drivel people post on here. People saying we need to do x,y and z whilst blithely overlooking the fact we have a manager who wont let the players do anything but sit on the edge of their box and hoof it.

Carragher has been excellent on TV and in the press and his comments about how we would play and how the team would set up have been spot on so why doubt him? I have seen what he said would happen, happen!!

And that's fine. But you're clearly completely bias against Hodgson based one player's view.

No I dont like the way Hodgson plays football -its negative, defensive and dull.

I am using Jamie Carragher as supporting evidence rather than basing my views on his.

Instead of sniping at me why dont you find a shred of evidence to dispute my points.

I'm not even disagreeing that our playstyle is "negative, defensive and dull". What I'd say is; how do you expect us to play with the players we have available? The only way we could play the football you want for 90 mins would be to drop Gerrard or Parker and play with two new CMs in a 4-5-1. We just don't have that depth because of injuries.

I expect us to play more compact from back to front so that when players get the ball they have options and can pass it to each other and the forwards arent in a different time zone to the rest of the team. Pretending the players we have can only play so negatively when they dont play anything like that for their club teams is just plain stupid.

This. I think part of our problem is that the style and tempo of Premier League football is so much different to international football. The epl is all about strength and speed, whereas international football demands a more patient and methodical approach. Against Italy, it was clear to see that we are just not comfortable with a possesion game.

I never thought I'd say this but Satan and Thatchers love child is spot on...

Well no it wasnt 'clear to see' anything of the sort. The only thing that it proved was that its hard to even attempt play a possession game when you play a dinosaur 4-4-2 with all but two players 30 yards from our goal, with no movement, attacking intent or purpose.

This is what I get for arguing with tbdg and SSN. Lesson learned, won't be bothering again.

An argument implies you have some valid basis for your opinions. You do not.

This was just education.
