Actually, I don't think you can blame Sven for an unexpected but not uncommon howler from David James - but, then again, he DID pick him!
Trouble is, Rio Ferdinand is still suspended and Sol Campbell is injured. And don't forget Wayne Rooney is still injured.
I think Frank Lampard is over-rated and, dare I say it, Gary Neville is always suspect against skilful players. We desperately need a good goalkeeper, but who??? A new Gary Neville - but who?? Someone to replace Frank Lampard - but who?? Nicky Butt is also a has-been, so forget him. I actually prefer Joe Cole to Lampard and am just grateful that Steven Gerrard is there to give us the strength and direction in midfield. David Beckham's passing left much to be desired, also.
I think we'll have a better idea of how bad or good we are against Poland. Trouble is, the FA has a reputation for standing behind its appointments UNTIL we fail to qualify for tournaments rather than dismissing them during the qualifying stages.
Let's be honest. Watching England is always a frustrating business and has been since the glorious days of 1966! Once Brian Clough was overlooked for the England job I knew it was diplomats the FA wanted and not the best man for the job. Almost 40 years since we last won a trophy says it all................. For goodness sake, Greece won the European Nations Cup!!
