    Nineteen Ninety Six Ian. Its just a shame we arent playing Holland next.

    Tub thumping aside, i thought 4-5-1 was a risky propsition that didnt really work. Rooney was isolated too much, with no support. Beckham still disapeared for large periods, and if it wasnt for his free kick i think he would have been replaced quicker. His crosses in were poor! Hargreaves, who played excellently as holding midfielder had problems at right back, and we still let the equadorians have too much free space in attack. And Robinson? STOP FUCKING KICKING THE BALL TO THE FORWARDS FFS, throw it and play it out, keeping posession you tit.

    Against portugal? Carragher at right back. Drop lamplard. Play hargreaves. Play rooney and crouch. 4-4-2. If beckham has another bad 50 mins – SUB HIM for lennon.

    I agree with most of your main points tonight. From here on in a healthy slice of luck could bump anyone into the final. I actually fancy us to be the worst team to reach a world cup final since we last performed the trick in 1966.

    Portugal will be even more unfamiliar with their line up than we will come next weekend.

    Having said that, Big Phil has never lost a game at this level, and one is left wishing he had been sent off too.

    If Lampard spends 6 days kicking this new ball from 30 yards and learning to keep it under the bar, I’ll have to take next Thursday off work.

    When England play like that, I just imagine I’m watching the 1970 Brazil team play. So, I thought we were sublime.
