    Thought I'd start a thread for the game tonight.

    Under 21's did really well last night so I'm hoping to see the seniors have a good run out. Very interested to see what Capello does with the sudden inrush of young players into top Premiership starting line-ups, hopefully we'll see some fresh faces tonight and hopefully Wales will beat Montenegro.

    Anyone off to Wembley Tuesday for the England - Wales game?

    If your going to write about players picking up injuries on international duties please don't bother posting it you boring bastard.

    I do think we are way overdue a blistering performance from England. Hopefully it will be tonight. Oh & hopefully Parker does not pick up an injury ;)

    Lol!

    I saw a possible line-up in the paper today and it had Rooney, Young and Walcott up front which should result in some very good play but we all know what happens when these guys don the England shirt. Players like Barry, Milner and Lampard are just :9898: though!

    I would actually like to see Parker play now that we have a new interest in him, but I'll not comment on the risk to injury!!

    Rooney & Young is very interesting up top as they seem to work well for Utd. Not convinced with Walcott though.

    Walcott is a little pleb but playing him in a 4.3.3 on the right would probably get the best out of him. Lennon should have made that position his but obviously he didn't. I think Dawson has probably slipped right down the rankings now as well.

    Well, very happy with that tonight and I thought Scotty Parker played a cracking game in the holding role. Great stuff. Bulgaria were woeful but that is besides the point, just waiting on the Wales result to see if we finally get clear of Montenegro at the top of the group. At last, something positive from the England team. Also though that the England kit looked pretty cool tonight, never seen that one before.

    I think it's the way the media bigs up the players and the team so much only for them to fall flat on their arses and the whole nation filled with disappointment.

    I suppose it's easier for you, I mean, why would the media ever big up the Irish? :001_302:


    All jokes aside, I suppose each person reacts to national disappointment differently. I'll always support England and hope they win, and then probably be disappointed after, but i'll always care more for Tottenham.

    Exactly............

    I am tired of watching England teams underperform - that's why I no longer care what either the team or Postman Pat do.

    I will add that it wouldn't be stretching the argument to claim that international duty may well have cost THFC millions in lost revenues due to Defoe and Dawson picking up long term injuries playing for their country.

    On a side note: how did Scotty Parker play? I'm really actually excited to have him in our tea, until Sandro's back. Hudd has not recovered and really isn't playing that well, and well Livermore isn't bad but he's young. So he is going to be crucial.

    Parker? - Excellent according to me.

    And not everyone feels the same way about the national team, personally I still love the national team and international football means just as much to me as club football. In general people don't care too much about England in many respects. I think that it has been drilled into us not to be patriotic about anything, whereas in countries around us like Ireland heritage and passion for national sport is obviously still widely celebrated.

    Anyway, either way, there was still a 4,000 strong travelling fan base last night that made a lot of noise.

    Perhaps, with the England having been so poor for so long, a drop in attention to International football will actually be a benefit. I can't personally understand a lack of interest in the team, even for a short period of time, but it will take some of the pressure of the players which is one of the reasons they have stated for under-performing.

    When we win the Euro's next summer, the support will come back :001_005:

    On a serious note I would love these England boys, the new breed to have some fookin passion, pride and a fookin laugh.

    I wanna see Rooney tied into the dentist chair and Jones, Young and Harrt pouring smabuca down his neck with topless page 3 models draped all over them.

    I want them to work for each other and cry their soppy hearts out because they care so much when they inevitably fall at the final hurdle in the next WC or Euro's.
