matt, the firsts red card decision in beckhams career wasnt dubious. i wouldhave reded him in a second(idk if reded is a word) but the one on saturday was very very harsh as erikson said. he only brought his otha foot that clipped him to keep himself from falling

well i dunno most players get booked for dissent or minor retaliation, not immediatly sent off.

i suppose that is the sort of thing that football can do without, but i think it would be better if it was 'phased out' slowly and carefully.

The guy blatently dived for Beckham's 2nd yellow card. If FIFA were serious abou clamping down on cheating they would have done something about it after the game.

It's a very sad part of the game to see talented players rolling around on the ground like spoilt children. They are a disgrace. There is a difference between going down easily if you are clipped in a challenge and diving when there is no contact.

Peter Crouch is one of the worst England players I've ever seen. It baffles me to see why Liverpool paid £7m for him yet Bent went to Charlton for £2.5m.

It's very frustrating to see the England team play so poorly all the time. We have the best pool of talent the country has produced since we last won the World Cup in 1966. Maybe the performance against Poland will be the turning point. The score was only 2-1 but England tore Poland to pieces. If we'd won by 3 or 4 goals, they couldn't have complained.

However the score was 2-1 not 5-1 and u did play us off the park but only in the first half the second was more even, we also got scared of u we thought u were unbeatable, the gods of football, but ur not, sooner or laer we will beat u on ur ground and I will be there to see it.
