Yeah I saw that goal on sky sports news. Looks like Germany D team's U-13s keeper!! ha ha.

England were very ordinary. Gave the ball away a lot. Against probably about the second worst Brazil teams in history. Nice goal from Rooney but I got a bit bored watching Walcott give the ball away or run down dead end alleyways. World class pace, sunday morning finishing...

Yet the hype has started in the papers today...

And what do we do when by some miracle we get our noses in front? We start passing the ball backwards, not carrying on the tactics that got us the two goals. So we put the ball right in the part of the field that the opposition scores goals from. Derr!

I think thats rule 7, sub section 5, if you find your England tactics get you two goals, change tactics and start playing scared until you hand edge back to opponents.

Yes, they're pretty awful looking. Not the worst ever, but awful.

I referred to the new kits a few posts back. Even took the time to include pictures. What's going on, Jimwink

As for Aspas, I'm afraid I don't know a lot about him. However, scoring 12 goals in a team as poor as Celta can't be bad.

I was "set to quote" your post, as mine was a response to yours. Apologies all around, old stick. smile

I don't know much about Aspas either, but let's just hope he isn't eventually branded "Asbos" by the press. wink

So, Bale to Real Madrid for £900m, Villas Boas to leave Tott and manage Paris Saint Germain, Wayne Rooney to leave United, Wayne Rooney to stay at United, (depending on which paper you read on which day) and with 2 whole goals to his name for the season, Carlton Tree Cole to go to West Brom (= thats them relegated next year then).

Meanwhile, the worst striker in the world, Niclas Bendtner, goes the shameless road all players on the way down travel along when they cant get even the worst Premier League side to sign them - Turkey!!! (isnt anton ferdinand out there? I rest my case!!)

Anyone following the Under 21 European Championship in Israel? My country Norway actually beat England 3-1 and plays the semi-final against Spain today. Holland meets Italy in the other semi.

He's seems to have been coming about 8 months but its probably only 3 weeks since we first heard they had got him. I wonder how many people will refer to him as Pellegrino?? Be fun having a media watch to count how many times people say it wrong.

Go ahead and laugh, but I love the (bitter) taste of Pellegrino water!

To be honest, Mr Pellegrino has got to be an improvement on Mancini.

There was a wonderful aside from English sports writer Brian Glanville at the time of the Tevez and Ballotelli troubles, which rather summed Mancini up as a coach....

"...There's this thing that everyone goes on about called man-management.... and I dont think Mancini is very good at it..."

Did you catch any of the Confederations Cup opener, Bill? Brazil won 3-0 over Japan and already the BBC Sport page is aglow in all things "-inho" and "Neymar." They sure are in love already!

I didnt see it, jim, although I saw Brazil were 1-0 up and watched for about 2 mins.

Brazilian fans on here may know better, but in truth, after seeing them against England, I thought their current team was one of the more ordinary Brazilian sides I have ever seen in 45 years.

For the most part they have phenomenal teams but every now again they have a crop which struggles against even the dullest European sides. They usually still have a flair individual or two but not enough to make them serious big tournament contenders.

I am yet to be convinced by this current crop. Far cry from Pele and jairzinho 70 and Falcao/Socrates 82.

Perhaps Brazil are better than the woeful side that booted penalty kicks into the upper stands in the 2011 Copa America, but I haven't seen anything from them against a worthy opponent (sorry, Three Lions) just yet. Let's see what happens when they face better competition. I'm not sure they'll see it in the CC 2013, though. Mexico have beaten them before and Italy are always game no matter what one thinks of the current squad.

No argument from me on that, Jim. England have been shit for a lot of years.

saw a few mins of Italy v Mex - italy stringing some nice stuff together, Pirlo is just class and the new guy upfront looks a handful.
