Group B: England vs Trinidad & Tobago

And the band played believe it if you like! England were, if anything, average on Saturday. Certainly not a world class squad. I've already seen at least 4 sides that'd stuff them and send them home with their tails between their legs.

They did lack lustre.

But as tradition has it.... we suck in opening games. Very Happy   

In other times, we would have drawn with Paraguay, but such is our team this time, that we won. woohoo

No.... tradition has it you suck! And that's where the sentence ends. Tradition also has it you're overrated... you seem to be fulfilling that one quite nicely. At least we Scots know we're crap and admit it.

If you admit that you are crap, I am afraid that you will never improve. Frown

There are quite a few grades between crap and wonderful! Surprised

Just because you dont believe yourslef to be crap does not mean that you have to consider yourself wonderful.

Looking at the performance of Poland shows just how weak our qualifying group was tbh.
Every team looks better than us so far tbh, except maybe the yanks and Costa Rica.
Can't believe USA are ranked 5th in the world. That's because most games they play are against the likes of Barbados and Honduras in CONCACAF (sp?). As soon as they come up against decent European opposition, they get stuffed every time. Even our 3rd team with the likes of Kieran Richardson and Zat Knight gave them a lesson last year in a game they took quite seriously.

The FIFA ranking policy makers need a sound thrashing. It is based on performance only, and not performance according to opponents.

Would you believe it, they released a club rankings a few years ago and in that the top Indian club was ranked ahead of Middlesbrough. roflmao roflmao

The Czechs look the best so far tbh. Brazil vs. Italy/Czech in the 2nd round is going to be some game.

Neville is out. Carragher to play at RB. No big loss IMO. As long as its not Hargreaves that plays there it's all good.

Why say that its not a big loss??  Our biggest asset is our right flank, Carragher cant provide the same support to Beckham. no

True our biggest asset is on the right flank, but it ain't the full back.
Not much difference between Carragher and Neville IMO. Carragher is a superior defender, the main priority of a right back and he's not useless on the ball either. He's also quite capable of passing the ball up the line to Beckham.
It's a loss sure, but if we were to lose any player, Neville is the one we would miss least IMO. Definitely a big loss of experience though.
