I predicted Englands demise at the quarter finals before the tournament started. I think my prediction was more based on hope than any realistic belief, which is amazing when you look at the collective and individual talent we have in our young players.
Rooney reverted to type........ again, Lampard wasn't at the races imo (...did too much for Chelsea's owner and allround Russian Mafia boss last season) and I do not think playing him and Gerrard in the same role works.
Wonder if Mc Claren has the guts to change the midfield by ousting Beckham and bring in the likes of Carrick and Lennon?
The only plus' as far as I could see were Joe Cole and Ferdinand .....and he hardly excelled.
Good riddance to Erikson and his dated 'Serie A' influenced defensive tactics.
