Maybe a game worth a bet tbh. It's one of these standard 30 minutes of cageyness followed by the remaining hour being a fairly comfortable goal every 15-20 minutes.

You can get as much as 8/1 for halftime draw, fulltime England.

Hope we kick em for 8 or 9. Be a nice change for to actually do that when we should.

Just know it'll be another drab 2-0 or summat. Liechstenstein springs to mind.

It'll be tough to score a lot as a 2-0 loss would be a good result for them, hence they'll keep defending. We'll win without breaking much of a sweat and the Capello machine will continue to gain momentum. Even though I don't think we're much good I never feel like we're not going to win at the moment, we're ruthlessly efficient. I'm discounting the Spain game as they're the best in the world and we haven't had long enough under Fabs to be expected to compete at that level quite yet.

Tbh, aye. Capello's rekindled a bit of interest from me, certainly. I'm still in the 'rather Newcastle won a throw-in' camp, but i'd consider going to an England game nowadays.

It's the fact that the vast majority of the squad are utter t***s that'll always keep my interest below a certain level. Terry, Ferdinand, Cole, Gerrard, Lampard, Rooney, etc... utter t***s at the most twattish clubs. Can't stand the f***ers, which in turn makes me feel pretty meh about England on the whole.

Intrigued to see what direction Capello's taking us in, though.

Burnley have great togetherness and fighting spirit. They make life tricky for teams at Turf Moor and are starting to pick up points, even Man Utd didn't have it their own way there. All in all, a point is a decent result on the road in the Premier League.

You need one classy defender at least, can't go having two cloggers. JT's about as classy as those birds from the Britain's cheapest brothel thread.

Good good  :celb:

This is gonna be a frustrating game I reckon, out of the European minnows Andorra are usually the hardest to break down. They usually park the bus and attempt to injure the opposition.

3-0 England.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.

It'd be nice to open them up early and not let up but yeah, 3-0 is probably a likely scoreline. Perhaps 4.

:lol: Compared to Terry he is! I was just making a general point anyway, not neccesarily saying that was the ideal pairing I'd go for with the two first choices being out.

4/5-0 tonight I reckon, I hope we start poorly though because I like watching Capello bollock people from the sidelines.

I'm with the man who said 7+. Its about time we obliterated someone, not because we deserve it but because it would be nice for me to actually enjoy an England game for once.

The classy/clogger argument would suit Woodgate but I'd rather he didn't play for England - an injury waiting to happen.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

Lescott has twice the atheticism that Uspon has. Upson is Ramage/Huntington slow

"You should build him a ramp on his house."

I just can't arsed about all these overpaid w*****s playing a seriously weak team like Andorra. If they don't beat them about 12 nowt they should be ashamed. And if they do beat them 12 nowt the media will be going on about how we will win the World Cup every four years until about 2050. :rolleyes:

Serious question: do people think Lescott or Upson should be playing? (behind Rio and Terry)

Upson.

Lescott is the better defender in the Premiership, but only in the Premiership imo. More of a bruiser/bully type who'll get caught out when ball watching by quick/intelligent movement. I reckon he's out of his depth at international level, which is what he's looked like in the few games hes played.

This could also describe John Terry.

Has Upson played against any decent opposition?

I see what you're saying but your description can describe Upson ad infinitum. I guess I'm biased though.

Tbh, I dont see a defined line between who is the better of the two as players. You can easily argue for either and be just about spot on. For me its Lescott, but thats just my preference for the way he plays, rather than him being far and away better than Upson. It's quite a tough one.

at least we know we'll beat QPR next season with Ramage at the helm of their defence.
