3-5-2 or was it 5-3-2

Steve Mclaren was obviously playing the latter because Gary Neville only passed the ball forward once in the entire match - he does not have the skill or pace to be a wing back whilst Cole saw how slow Jamie Carragher was in a bck 3 that he was in shock for most of the game neither wing back or left back !

In defence of the manager and players they did not have much of a chance to win but could have sneaked a draw. Without Gerrard, Hargreaves and Joe Cole they had little chance of beating a team that has never lost a home international match and easily dealt with Crouch who continues to refuse to jump because he thinks at 6 ft 7 in he does not need too !

The team and manager are now being slaughtered mainly because of crazy expectations . when will fans and media realise England are a tier 2 footballing nation not even knocking on the door of tier 1 to join Brazil , Germany,Argentina and Italy - well behind France and the Netherlands...........

Not until the demonic little Kinder start training, thinking and acting like professionals, rather than celebrity demi-gods who are owed a living by their adoring and ever-forgiving public purely on the basis of their drinking, gambling, brawling and shagging exploits. In other words, not until they stop being Sunday League pub players. Laughably over rated and obscenely remunerated little ASBO candidates.
