Someone explain to me how you can be a professional footballer when you have no neck?

He should be pulling carts of ale up Dublin hills with a yoke round his shoulders. He's got the touch and vision of a fucking pit pony. He's like a steroid laden version of Curtis Fleming.

But he runs about sir, 'puts a shift in'. The pre-requisite for greatness amongst England's elite.

Let me tell you why England aren't successful....... it's because the people who run football in this country are all 60 + years old and THEY were brought up on the kind of horrific football that exists only on those weird looking repeats of The Big Match on itv 4. These dinosaurs appreciate the same ridiculous hoofball that we still see sporadically to this day. Back when these old men were boys, EVERY football match started exactly the same way (and the old fuckers of this board will remember this well) .....The two strikers would kick off, one tapping it to the other, who would then knock it back to the midfielder waiting at the base of the centre circle. He would then in turn pass it straight back to the keeper, stood waiting at the edge of his box. The keeper would pick it up (because he could in those days) and then, after a bounce or two of the ball, he would HOOF the ball as long as he could down the other end of the pitch. That is how every single game of football began from the invention of the game till around the mid eighties. People actually commented on how good the hoof was, for fucks sake. If he managed to kick it all the way to the opposing keeper, folk would regard that as a strength.

So, what with the game being run by octogenarians who were brought up on dogshit football like this, is it any wonder all is lost ? Only when the old guard have long gone and departed these shores, being replaced by the generation who were raised watching Liverpool in the 80's, Man U for the next two decades and now the likes of Barcelona will we see improvement and a heightened sense of how the modern game should be played. Maybe then, once this status quo is dismantled, we may see a set-up, Football Association or England team that is something to be proud of. Till then, get used to the cloggers.

The FA is a joke, they probably have 2 boardrooms, one for the geriatrics where they can play with paper and crayons and do wee wees on to a tiled floor. Another boardroom for the real football people.

RE: James Milner

It was a friendly ffs and only a few of those playing would start a competitive game

Having said that Cahill is a regular and he was awful

And that should be Lampard last game for us

I'm with TAB on this one. Committee man gobshite "You younguns know nowt!" attitude. They're more concerned about getting a jolly to somewhere foreign and sunny with cheap beer and even cheaper whores.

RE: James Milner

Allied to TAB's post, add 'I'm very rich therefore i'm very good, no need to get any better'. The English game is traditionally based on strength, it had to be, the pitches where like the Somme in 1918 (Baseball Ground anyone?) and you needed legs like Stallone's arms to make it from one end of the pitch to the other.
Having said that, as has been mentioned, last night was a friendly and bears no relation to the team that would have been picked for a proper game.

Mike Williamson epitomises the old style of player, hard and grafts but cannot pass the ball

And we have returned to this style to get the last few results

RE: James Milner

We don't win competitions like Euros & World Cup for a few reasons;

We haven't got enough desire, skill or organisation.

Defensively we are niaive, the midfield lacks ideas and we don't have enough quality up front.

We are an average team, since '66 apart from 1986 & 1990 World Cups & 1996 Euros we always have been.

Funnily enough every time we had a strong Geordie influence.
