The Englishman, the Irishman & the Forgotten man
I watched both the England
games today - thought I'd get my $20's worth!
Don't you think that if England played other British countries every game we would win the World Cup? I've just re-read that and it doesn't make any sense but you know what I'm saying, right? It was good to see Sven play Owen, Defoe & Rooney up front although I don't think they passed to each other all the time the three of them were on. It was scary how good Rooney was again. When he gets the ball you just have that feeling that something special is going to happen.
I thought Campbell & Ferdinand were ever so solid at the back and Butt looked better for playing regular first team football. A wonder goal from Beckham settled a comfortable victory.
As far as the Welsh go, it was a shame that Savage was suspended because that might have upped the temperature a notch and I was once again impressed by Gabbidon, I would like us to sign a young centre half like him or Jagielka from Sheffield United unless Michael Turner is good enough to hack it in the Premiership - I haven't seen enough of him personally.
There were plenty more people in Fado's
to see the Irish game later. The ROI were excellent and the 'new' French team is a shade of what they once were. They fully deserved to win the game in my opinion and they were wonderfully supported by 35,000 paddy's in the Stade de France.
I was disappointed not to see Matt Holland play and his replacement Kevin Kilbane put in a match winning performance which will probably mean he won't start on Wednesday against the Faroe's either.
Meanwhile, while his fellow team mates were around the globe playing for their respective National sides, 480 second man & forgotten ex International Scott Parker sneaked back into Sparrows Lane this morning to watch the Charlton U16's (more
You can just see him standing on the touchline with the Dad's, kicking every ball just dying to join in and get a game can't you? Shame!
