    Quite simply the worst football team in the world, great individual players, crap team involvement.

    Sack the lot of them (including Capello) and start from scratch because the current crop really don't deserve to be wearing the colours.

    Disappointing. Not one decent performance in the whole of the world cup.

    I'm not a big footie fan, however here are my thoughts:

    1. There really wasn't an England team. There were lots of excellent England players, but all of them on one team and they didn't seem to gel together. They would have performed better if they had players that weren't as good individually, but knew how to play as a team.

    2. England should have been granted the second goal, it was clearly in.

    3. But in the end, the team that played the best won...

    Seriously
    you got to the same round as the USA
    got the same points as the USA
    had LESS goals than the USA
    and couldnt even beat the USA

    I have to live with this people, I have to live with it
    :)


    what a pitiful performance, bunch of overpaid whining bags of flesh if you ask me, stop paying people stupid money to play a game and get some real talent who want to be there and know what it takes to win
    we dont,

    Agreed. I have always said this is why England loose in the big competitions. If your getting £140k a week plus a world cup pay out which I think is something like £50k (might even be £50k a game) wether you do your job well or do it badly are you gonna give a ****? ofcourse your not.

    Bring in performance pay and bring in video technology.

    Dunno mate, some of the players in other countries are well paid but still put in a good performance at the world cup.

    I blame the premiership, not enough English players playing in the top teams.

    Well when England just about manages to keep it a draw with Algeria, which more than half of their players are amateurs, this goes to show the difference between playing for loving your shirt and loving your bank account.

    I am not a football fan at all, I have always hated it even though I liked playing it when I was at college. But it is for things like the goal that England should have got and it was taken away that drive me mad. I believe that this kicked the player’s moral back and it was just downhill thereafter.

    IMHO, no football player deservers the millions of pounds they earn.

    Forget england, my old man is now flying his giant Italian flag (we still don't know where he got it from) in his back garden at half mast. Here football is just a game, in Italy it is a religion. Still, gives me something to wind him up with.

    At least Spain are still in it. :biggrin

    That said, the England performance was pitiful. From now on, get an English manager (or at least a non-English one that doesn't need a translator), ban the WAG media bullsh*t, cap player wages GLOBALLY and for the love of God enough with the gawdy OK! magazine photoshoots.

    PLAY. THE. GAME.

    The end.

    Disappointing as yesterday was, it is nothing to do with money.

    Last final was between France and Italy, who both went out first round, and the bulk of both squads is exactly the same. Those guys havent got poorer in the last 4 years.

    England are not as good as we like to think we are and until we have more english players in the prem to give the manager more depth to choose from we will never show a dramatic improvement. Players like Heskey and Lampard wont be at another world cup, and possibly wont be at the next Euro, so wholesale changes are coming whether we like it or not.

    The back line just didn't seem to gel yesterday, was a terrible performance from all. No pride, no passion for the country! Ah well, that's what being an England supporter is all about, heartache!

    Roll on Brazil 2014!

    At least the Cricketers are doing us proud.

    You did well to get to the last 16, should be happy with that. As a team they have never shown to be capable of winning it, so why the surprise when they get beat by Germany, i do not understand.
