    Okay, so, I will keep this short and sweet about the England performance:

    There is no point berating the manager. There is no point making excuses.

    England do not have enough top class players who are able to play together. Pure and simple.

    Never mind England, fucking hell how did Ireland get away with that tonight?

    1-1 with San Marino till about the 96th minute when they score a winner.

    Would have been a great result for San Marino and also us as we are in the same group.

    we were beyond awful.

    Stephen Ireland scored with the last kick of the game.

    saved Staunton his job, imo.

    Do you really think that a last-minute winner is going to save Staunton from the sack? I.e. that a 2-1 win is acceptable for the Republic? I'll be very surprised if the media isn't absolutely slating him tomorrow morning.

    Looking forward very much to Croke Park now if he does stay, I think it's fair to say.

    As for England, Spain are a good side and you have to play at a high tempo to stop them controlling the game. England didn't and got beaten pretty convincingly. Great goal by Iniesta though.

    McClaren could be another one sitting quite uncomfortably in his job.......I always said, they should have gone for Allardyce.

    England are like the international version of Real Madrid. Tonnes of talented players, but none of them able to gel like a team...

    ... Hmmm.

    Not quite, BZ!

    Also, there is no point berating the manager - the squad is crap as well.

    Then i'll berate the FA for yet again appointing a dour cunt who they can control instead of a decent, solid tactician with a bit of flair. The man is a fucking mug, and deserves a slap. But yes, the squad are a heap of shit as well.

    There is a reason though. England do not play to their strengths. They've been trying to slow the pace down, concentrating on their movement and passing, and grind out 1-0 victories like the continentals do for about five years now. And basically, they can't do it. Not at all.

    What England should do is play to their strengths. They've got some players with genuine pace and with the league we have in the Pemiership, we should up the tempo early on and keep it going. Instead of playing stop-start on-off football, we should go at teams from the off. Hike the bloody ball forward if needs be. There's no substitute for shitting a team up like the English do. Look at the mousers in the Champs League final. They made the best team on the continent look like a bucnh of fatties from a pub outfit for a good half hour.

    Pick the right players with a bit of passion for the shirt and get stuck in. Nevermind who it's against. England was always designed to be a fast running, bone crunching tackling, long balling hoofing bunch of thugs who murder you on and off the pitch, shag your women and defocate on your flag.

    And that's what we want back. That passion. Fuck the continentals. Literally. Fuck them all. In the arse.

    Also, if in the long term this plan for England getting the passing, tactical awareness and movement right is to work then wee need to start exporting our young lads (i'm talking 12 upwards here) to places like Spain, Italy and Germany to learn from the best there. They send their lot over here and that's fine, but we don't reciprocate And it's a crying shame.

    And until we start getting the passion back in our national side, i'm boycotting the cunts and supporting the Jerries. Hell, I supported them after we got kicked out of the World Cup by the dirty wops, and i'll do it again.

    Wunderbar, or whatever.

    P.S. Frank Lamptard is a greasy little oik, and should be strung up by his boot laces whilst being spat on by a lepper with cold sores.

    I agree with those sentiments, Minty. Don't know if you caught the England U-21's vs Spain U-21's, but we pulled it back from 2-0 down - why? Because Psycho told them all during half time "play like a Premiership outfit" and they did. The result? 2-2. Textbook fucking stuff.

    God you England fans don't half moan about nothing.....This England side might have lost narrowly to Spain but would still beat about 95% of the world's international teams more often than not.

    All teams have blips even the best. Sacking a manager who's proven in the Premiership and Europe won't really do a whole lot of good to be honest.

    I won't deny that keeping an average Premiership outfit afloat is easy but it's not exactly top level is it? When compared to the likes of Alex Ferguson (albeit he'd never take the job) he doesn't compare as a domestic manager, and that's where international managers are plucked from mostly, the domestic game.

    Oh, and Maclarens' Boro side lost that UEFA Cup final didn't they.

    Getting to a UEFA Cup final is still pretty good in my opinion.

    And Boro were shit before he came along and won them their first trophy for fuck knows how long.

    No, same as Fergie. But he's still a better manager than Maclaren.

    I say they promote Psycho already.

    But to think though, Fergie, could he be tempted? You'd think not, but you never know. If he bows out this season at Utd, taking the Premiership title with him, then who knows
