My ” I told you so” moment

I couldn’t be more happy now. I’m passing in my exams and now England have been thrown out of the European Championships.

As expected , Mc Clown put out a ridiculous line-up with Lescott starting ahead of Ferdinand and Carson ahead of James. Also Paul Robinson wasn’t even in the side. As usual Crouch started (even though Defoe , Andy Johnson and Alan Smith are far better options) .

And to top it all off ,(a gloating “just like I predicted” here) Gerrard and Lampard were once again made to play together in the midfield.

So basically , McClown totally screwed up.

Croatia totally deserved to win and I’m very happy that a deserving young talented team(Russia) made it through instead of a team full of “stars” managed by a fool who didn’t deserve to get this far in the first place.

    Few errors:

    > “Lescott starting ahead of Ferdinand”

    Ferdinand was suspended for the match. He’s dumb, but not THAT dumb.

    > “a deserving young talented team made it through instead of a team full of “stars””

    I hope you mean Russia, because Croatia had qualified anyway.

    Also, don’t agree with “Defoe, Andy Johnson and Alan Smith are far better options”. I think almost everyone will agree, that Crouch was the best option by far – and probably if Beckham had played longer, the combination could have created probably another goal.

    yeah becks shld have got the nod ahead of SWP…the tower needs passes n beckham showed in the second half….
    “Defoe, Andy Johnson and Alan Smith are far better options” don’t think so dude….u say alan smith??? as a lone striker??? he is not a striker for newcastle also….
    the idea of going with 4-5-1 formation back fired on McClown
    but playing carson was horrible….i don’t like robinson neways but james is in b8r form….

    Abhishek: Oops…forgot about the ban for Ferdinand . Mea Culpa.
    Yes , I meant Russia …I like Hiddink sides in general.
    And c’mon….Crouch is crap…he doesn’t have positioning sense , speed , shots basically evrything u need in a good striker. Andy Johnson is a very good striker with all the above qualities.As is Defoe.

    Sameer: He should not have played a 4-5-1 in the first place. Alan Smith is atleast hardworking and can finish given a chance. He brings a lot more to the team than Crouch.

    ya the 4-5-1 only was the prb but in 4-5-1 i think crouch only was rite man as johnson had jus recovered from injury he played his 1st match this saturday(and btw he scored :D)…defoe also didn’t have match practice…..smithsy is good as attacking mid fielder but not at all lone striker for me……..neways i guess discussion on england… 😐
    one more thing croats are again in their group for WC2010 qualification… 😀
