Pre/post match England v Jamaica

Post by Wiseman_philosopher » 03 Jun 2006, 12:34

So, with the World Cup peeking around the corner, it is D-day for Eriksson. It is time for England to perform, and breathe confidence through the nation.

Crouch is set to start up-front, but personally I see this as a bit of a lose-lose situation for him. If he fails to perform, then people will slaughter him, but if he plays well, people will say that he wouldn't be so fortunate against stronger opposition. Nevertheless, good luck to the big man.

It is vital that his strike-partner Michael Owen performs today, as we are all concerned about his fitness and form alike.

Eriksson has reverted to the orginal 4-4-2 system, which will force Gerrard and Lampard to comply with each other again, and potentially reduce their respective threats. This will be interesting.

As far as the defence is concerned, at last we seem to have a class keeper in Paul Robinson, coupled with a reliable back four which should prove vital to our chances this year.

Lets hope that England can go to Germany in full confidence following today.
He who thinks too much about every step he takes will stay on one leg all his life.

(Speaking as a neutral excited observer)
Excellent confidence booster for Eriksson and his men. Certainly benefit them psycholocally.


Next up..Paraguay, June 10, refereed by Mexican international Rodriguez.

Crouch's robot dance is the most stupid thing I have ever seen. :oops:

Interesting first-half. Jamaica seemed to be making a fight of it but after two own goals they really lost their confidence and the game got dull. Owen's goal was probably the best but not much too spectacular (which has come as a shock for Errikson....)

Hopefully that was a reasonable simulation of how Trinidad and Tobago play so good preparation then.

P.S. Sputnik, you have WAY to much time on your hands :lol:

Jamaica are one of the worst international teams I've ever seen....and I'm taking Wales into account in that statement

Other assorted points:

1. The atmosphere was pretty good - attendence was just over 70,000
2. Jamaica have the longest national anthemn I've heard. It went on and on and on and on .........
3. Mexican waves are gay
4. Those stupid plastic things you bang together are even gayer
5. Club shirts and songs should not be worn at England games
6. I reckon around 50% of the Jamaica fans didn't turn up until half time. The away section wasn't full during the first half but it was full in the 2nd half.

And the best thing......Eriksson will never be in charge of another England game in England :D
