didnt miss much ian they was :cen:


Didn't,t loose 4-0 as someone predicted.......promising start if they can build on it

London must be full of foreigners.

Got stuck on Hangar Lane all the way to the M4.... Got slowed up just past Membury Services.

Got home at 6:15. Not many people went home early to watch the match. My journey home was slightly worse than normal..

Worse than that....

Got to be on Oxford Street W1 at 5 in the morning.. I will have to leave at 03:30 :park: :park:

Bed in a minute.

See ya tomorrow!!

A very good England performance. Nice to see some discipline in defence (2 lines of 4) and I also thought that going forward wee looked good at times, in particular Chamberlain and Wellback excelled.

The only thing I care about is the ex Wolves man scored, a true Midlands lad and out of the Wolves academy. Nice bloke, always new he'd end up in the national team, he's always looked class. Happy for him.

there seemed to be discipline/confidence in the team , in the past they have appeared to be nervous and a lot of giving the ball away , like others have said i think it's a positive start and something to build on

I am more positive than I can remember after an opening match! I actually enjoyed watching England!

Exactly, they've got Germany next too. Might go out and buy some leather trousers and sit in the bar heckling them?

i worked at wolves ground for a day installing an electric cable , there was building work being carried out 'by the shop' and the cable ran from there, under the stand where the tunnel is to the transformer room at the end of the stand by the medical room .
i must point out that at that time i smoked the herbal , not proud but i did in fact we all did , anyway , we finished pulling the cable and we had a crafty smoke outside the medical centre/room , as the others packed up the gear me and 2 other colleges walked along the pitch past the players tunnel and where 4 players were playing 'keepy upy' just on the pitch , as we walked past they dropped the ball a couple of times n i thought id be clever n said " ha , no wonder you're in the lower division" which made my 2 colleagues giggle and we continued out walk along the pitch ..
5 metres later i was nearly knocked off my feet by a ball which felt like a :cen: cannon ball hitting me right in the middle of my back , with that i just put my head down n kept walking with my 2 colleagues saying "that'll teach ya" ..n it did

argh? ! whys it double posted ?

I normally watch the Euros and The World Cup but I thought this started at 7.30pm :wall: and only learnt the fact after reading this lot.

Anyroad, what is Gerard on? why an earth did he say we were expecting a draw before the kick off, now come on, that's really positive isn't it? and when interviewed afterwards he said he was happy with a draw, what a 2 hat, I chuffin' well woulden't have been I would have wanted to win and no doubt he did, but why say he was happy with it, just a chuffin' same old lame excuse for not trying hard enough.

1-1 ain't good enough, they were lucky as per the normal England side.

That Robertson seemed a nice genuine chap afterwards he sounded like he had a brain, Gerard sounded chuffin' half baked if you ask me.

i can't understand with his previous indiscretions why he is captain of the team. it should be a person of good standing first and foremost. ferdinand and terry were not fit to be captain either.
on a footballing front i think with a youngish team we did well to finish 1-1 against a technically better and more experienced team.
