Keep it clean this is a family board!
I am really curious to get some thoughts from some of the England supporters.....
The media over here in the USA has been pretty critical of the English squad, but it looks like the media in England is completely trashing the team.
It appears that much of the criticism is valid, but I also feel that England got shafted horribly by the blown call on the goal, and this is from a die-hard Germany supporter. I think Germany was the better side yesterday, but who knows what would have happened if the score is 2-2 at halftime? The German side is young and if the game is 2-2, England may have taken a different tactical approach. Even Miroslav Klose came out today and said that England did not play as a team right from the start of the game. My family just says that was the soccer gods making amends for 1966.....
I have read a couple of articles that destroyed the team and didn't mention the goal that wasn't counted. The outrage was completely toward the team, not toward the idiot referee who missed that call.
That being said, they looked very average during the 3 group stage games - I was disappointed when I watched those matches since I expected more out of the English side.
Are you more angry about the goal that wasn't or the poor play overall? The defensive breakdowns yesterday had to have people pulling their hair out.......Do you think the coach will return?
