In Topic: 2018 Qualification Groupings

Greece play Hungary in Budapest the night we play Gibraltar, so could if they do not mind a double away header, then could be a possibility.

 

Bosnia are away to Andorra on the Saturday, so either they need to agree to a day less recovery or we need to have a longer break between games.

 

Can not see it being either as I have suspected for a while that Strachan does not really care for friendlies and the world rankings and his attitude is "you are only as good as your last game".

 

No very good then!


In Topic: Strikers?

Did he? I thought Russell did well but I don't think May did much to impress.

 

He touched the ball a couple of times and looked lively which to be fair was more than Martin mustered! Although service was poor he just looks overweight and immobile

I doubt I have seen a more intense physically demanding game than Ireland last Friday, I was totally knackered afterwards & I was just sitting in the stand, everything was gave (by both teams)
 
Maybe with hindsight Strachan shouldn't have listened to his players & freshened the starting 11 ??


Yeah he probably should've rotated - fresh legs Russell etc made a difference. Broony looked knackered and Martin needs to stay away from KFC

Obvious tonight Rhodes should have been there. Martin didn't move and did absolutely zero. Rhodes can do that and score sitters!

In Topic: England Squad - Do We Have Anything To Fear?

18 November 2014 - 01:18 PM

The question was should we fear them. I think only Lallana, Sterling, Rooney, Welbeck and Barkley are the only players that would cause us major problems if they have a very good game.

 

Very few of our players on paper individually would cause them problems.

 

However, it's a team game - we tend to play better as a team than England do. Lets hope that's true tonight.

 

Exactly. We would bite anyones hand off who offered us a striker like Welbeck or a Centre half like Jagielka and these are far from their top players.

But we do play better as a team and we have a good chance, draw is on the cards I reckon!
