My England Thoughts – With Video!

Good evening fellow England fans, and also good evening to all foreign fans who watched tonight, and laughed. Yup.. We laughed too…

This is a rant post. Don’t read it if you don’t like rants.. but DO watch the video at the end of the post.. Its hilarious! 😀 – Also feel free to comment. I’d be interested in hearing others views (note you can log into my blog using ur Facebook, MSN, Twitter or Gmail account!!!)

First of all, I rate Capello. He won the league with Real Madrid (twice) and both times got sacked for playing boring football. Sound familiar? The reason I rate him, is he’s very intelligent. He has faith in players, he likes to give them freedom to shine, and he rewards them for doing so. However, this is very obviously not the English way….

I think it’s obvious who the big let downs were… Heskey (Capellos fault for playing him?), Rooney (Given freedom, did nothing) and Gerrard (Captain and fell under pressure). Now, Capello gave Gerrard and Rooney freedom to be skillful world class players, but what actually happened (which I found quite interesting) was that both players fell to pressure, and proved they were not good enough to play out of position or to shine without the rest of the team to help…. This is VERY interesting, as compared with some of the other top players in the world, they suddenly look like one trick pony’s!

Now what’s the answer? Ok Capello can play them in position. That would help, a LOT, but we then still have big weaknesses which no manager is going to be able to resolve. The lack of English home grown skillful players is beginning to come out in full force. Our England team has been getting worse and worse since the likes of Beckham, Scholes, Owen (back in the day!), Sheringham and Shearer retired… (I know Owen hasn’t retired but he’s still not the same player..) – Who’s replaced them?

Wright-Phillips? Can run but just not enough skill in the tank or class on the ball
Lennon? Similar issue
Walcott? Oh wait, the manager didn’t even pick him!
Heskey? Defoe? Crouch? Hardly the class we need!

It’s a sad day because it’s a day us England fans have seen the REAL England… A lot of teams make our players look good, and today a very bad team made our players look awful.

What’s worse is the reputation is now damaged. What can we do against Slovenia to change this blog post…? Winning even 3 – 0 may not be enough to give us faith in the squad…

Today however, is a VERY happy day to be a Leeds fan. We thought it was tough watching our team under perform? We’re now watching a team show their true selves and there’s nothing anyone can do! That’s a bit worse!

Finally: Rooney aggressively insulted the England fans for booing at the end of the match… Rooney needs to wake up and smell the air, and stop being such a scummy git!

I promised a video.. This was just to cheer everyone up… Sorry about the quality but it is absolutely hilarious!!!!
