    The Germans seem to go out of their way to keep out of the limelight, but they do know how to play to win.

    They're organised, disciplined & incisive to almost military precision, never overstretched & mostly do just enough without scoring all that many goals!!

    Sadly i don't share your confidence in the Ability of our Over rated Team of inexperienced Kids.
    The Manager was an Average player .that has moved into management & Failed miserably .
    He is not Strong enough ,he's too Slow Making Decisions ,& is not a leader of Men.
    As with his predecessor he will never be a winner , IMHO
    Just another Yes Man ,Puppet ,to Dance when the FA pull the Strings.
    Unfortunately while we continue @ Club level to Constantly bring endless amounts of mainly average foreign player over here .
    Also we now have a Serious lack of capable English Managers
    Fingers crossed i am wrong
    If the Players had your confidence & Passion mate i would definitely agree with you
    Sadly they haven't mate
    Enough of this negativity. The younger team we have will do us proud.
    The old guard have almost all gone, decent players in their time but just played on after they were jaded.
    Lets not knock our replacements before they play a game.
    I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
    He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

    To become winners you need Consistency .
    A team that knows how the others think & confidence in where they are going to be & their Ability.
    To win you need to perform as 1 as a Unit .
    This can only be achieved by playing the same players ,it will never be achieved just throwing 11 players onto a pitch
    & hope for a Miracle.
    Players need to be used in the positions they pay @ Club level .They have been picked on the performance's they have given doing what they are used too.
    You will never win by trying to get your Players to learn how to play in unfamiliar position's
    Even an Average Centre back will be more reliable than a 40 goal a year striker playing out of Position.
    Because they are less likely to be drawn out of position.
    England seem to Coach the Natural Ability out of our players.
    You will also never win anything in Crab Mode .
    Back & Forth is the way to go .Not Side to Side

    For those that donít understand betting, if you bet £10 @ 16/1, youíll lose £10.

    16/1 is because of the bookies liabilities should they win - patriotism & all that.

    More like 40/1 to win + 1/5 (non handicap) odds each way. (yes - there's a third place play off)

    Should get past group stage, but we're notorious for making it "Hard Work" !!

    Best value bet must be Sweden...150/1 on betfair...they knocked out both Holland and Italy to qualify. got to be worth a tenner just for the excitement.
