If only it was as good as dismal. That might have been good enough.
Can't think of a word for it, pathetic might come closest. Worse than anything under Sven, and that's saying something. There was just no desire to win, no urgency, no nothing. We only started creating a couple of chances after 85 minutes when the guys suddenly realised "you know, we better start getting near that goal tbh..."
Credit to Macedonia for havin a go rather than parking a bus in front of the goal. Downing is crap. Certainly not an international player and you could see the difference when Wright-Phillips came on. He's also not exactly top class, but immediately got himself a great scoring chance that just lacked the finish, and not long after went on a run and beat 3 players, setting up Gerrard to hit the bar. Downing has done absolutely nothing in any game since a couple of assists against Greece. He will probably remain 1st name on the teamsheet for the rest of McLaren's reign though unfortunately. Can't understand why the tactics were so cautious against a team we should be putting a hatful past. If we'd started and played mos of the the game like we played the last 5 minutes we would've won 6-0.
The most disappointing thing is now we need to win in Croatia. If we had won this won as we should have, a draw in Croatia in mid week would have been all we needed to bring home. Need 3 points there now.
