Too naive but hopefully that will come with time.  We seem to have too many individuals up front who seem to want to take everyone on rather than play as a unit.

Our so called 'big' players (Gerrard and Rooney) have disappointed again. These are the type of players that are supposed to dictate matches, like Suarez, but are just non-existant when it comes to delivering.

Defensively we were total shit. Also there is no organiser, nobody tactically astute on the pitch. Jagielka really is bollox.

How was joe hart allowed to make an advert about a penalty shoot out, talk about tempting fate. What a load of shite.

I hate myself so much for even thinking this, it's horrible,  but first thought when suarez got the second goal was.... at least John Terry would have made more effort to get back and block the shot,  I think if Cahill had lunged he could have got a block in.

Feels just wrong,  I hate England for making me have such thoughts.

To be fair I've been waiting years to see England play like Spain.

Once a loser, always a loser.

Gerrard, most overrated player on the planet.

Forever failures our national team.

Should have picked Beckinsale as skipper

Should have taken Austin!!

Or at least Carroll so we could change tactics.

Disappointing after getting ourselves back level just like the Italy game.  Defensively we were poor. Hart is another player who does well for club, put pulls on an England shirt and turns to shite.

Agree with you Horlock, too much trying to walk the ball through instead of a decent pass or cross.

We were the better team.

The days of Beckham crossing it and Shearer heading it in are long gone.
Football isn't played that way anymore, all about ineffectively keeping it on the deck and racking up the possession.

It's hasn't helped that Rooney has been so desperate for a goal that he was shooting on sight and Sturridge just seems loath to pass to anyone.

We need a right back and an intelligent player to play alongside Cahill to tell him what to do.

If Barkley or Sterling can get some discipline midfield should be ok.

Finally Forster or another needs a move to a 'big' team, sadly think that we pick on team not on merit but perception.

Forget the odd freak result in qualifying games and the Euros, when was the last time we beat a top side in the actual WC Finals?

Think 1966 was the last time wasn't it?

Fucking serial bottlers!

Don't disagree but we are playing run into defenders and lose it and pass to the opposition so not exactly modern football either.

We'll dismantle Costa Rica and Italy will win their last two games.
