I get your point and is a valid one .. They played well to the point of getting a draw at one point in the match..

That said many missed chances by rooney,and gerrard giving Suarez a good chance to score .. Which he did.. Two supposed great England players not up to the mark...Rooney had a sitter of a goal.. A simple tap in.. But a goal just the same... And that was all they could achieve...

The bottom line is you are either better by beating your opponent or you are not.... That is the point of the game... After Englands first 2 games they have lost both.. The worst start possible...and with yet another new manager.to add to the list.

So is it the countless mangers or the countless players over the past 48 years or a combination of both ... We still cannot get further than the quarter finals..and it is our national sport... The 1966 win was well fought and the players were as one... A one off special team it would seem now... Like the Beatles never to be equalled .. All in the same era.. Times were different then...

Time may well change things in the future but in the mean time ... We are not making much progress.in ability in this World Cup.

The press again today are saying how humiliating they have performed ...the same has been said of many past World Cup reports ... As said it is like Groundhog Day.. History repeating it self every 4 years...

Frustrating .. But nobody it seems has the answer to play better...or the reason for not doing so... Maybe oneday they will rise again...

Have a good day...

They're not lame excuses, I was merely addressing the post by Northy that said, and I quote: "England well beaten". To me that comment suggests England took a pummeling, and that was not the case. I am not making 'lame' excuses, merely reinforcing my argument that England were not 'well beaten'. Do you understand that concept?

Perhaps you should read my earlier posts then you would see that I am English. I also did watch the game and saw England loose possession so easily, the passing was far poorer than it was against Italy and we missed goal scoring chances that other sides put away and we also failed to make any impression with free kicks or corners. Not sure which game you were watching but I wish our side had a clinical finisher like all the top sides have. Played 2 matches, scored 2 goals, let in 4.

I have to agree with your comments. When my team was rubbish (Man City who I have supported since 1970) I used to enjoy the England matches, even cheering Rooney when he played for his country. Now I doubt more than two a maximum of 3 of the England team would make City's first team. The National side are just full of mediocre players and managed by a mediocre manager who has only got the job because the old farts who run the FA think he is a jolly decent chap who will not rock the boat. I looked at the odds of England winning it this year. Amazingly they are only 80-1 they must be having a laugh. It is a pity the bookies do not offer odds against them winning it because it would be a dead cert !! I will still watch a few of the matches but there is no way i will organise my life round it over the remaining 3 weeks. On topic as one poster has said it looks like it is stuck in the 335- 345 range. just hope it takes a turn upwards to my bail out figure of £3.55 but fear I have a long wait.

With all due respect for you...

You have mentioned many of what could have been... and you say we had them on the ropes... sadly they are more of the same lame excuses ... that have been stated over the past 48 years... Rooney could have scored 3 you say ... well he didn`t did he.. that's the whole point ..that is why we lost......don`t score...don`t win...Basic Logic.

The fact remains is that they lost yet AGAIN....

Remember .excuses for losing .. do not win games... or we would be WORLD CHAMPIONS.

I like many have to except that we are not good enough......and they proved it yet again last night. The worst World Cup start since 1958 so they say...... The facts speak for themselves.....

Meanwhile enjoy the rest of the world cup in your own way... I just enjoy a good game ..and a chance to see the best in the world... regardless of an England exit.

You say England well beaten - did you actually watch the match cause that's not my interpretation about it. We had them on the ropes for much of it, Rooney could have scored three, their captain should have been sent off for a second bookable. Our possession was something like 65% to their 35%.

You must be an England hater? Scottish by any chance? Saw one in the Uruguay stand at one point wearing kilt etc. Long way to travel to demonstrate your depth of feeling. What's wrong with people?

It is strange how many flags are bought and put up for the England team ... When Realisticly their chance of winning are remote ... Anything to do with football creates money it seems, some obviously are a waste of money, but spent regardless...

As Hodgson says we came with high hopes but did not deliver... The simular line stated by several past managers.. .. The England mangers job appears to be one of the best paid jobs for failure that one can imagine.. Shows the folly of football and the amount of money it generates from the public.regardless of income..

Football has little affect on our lives, in reality in makes many poorer.. . And even makes some grown up and younger end up in floods of tears...

As the past England footballer .. Greaves said..... Football, it's a Funny Old Game... .. Sums the game up very well to me.. Many fans take the game far to seriously and get to emotional for something that has little benefit on their life.

One must get things in perspective ... It is just a game...but some need to have something to be part of...and follow... And become part of their lives... And culture... Like many women follow soaps on TV.. Once hooked must follow it for countless years

All good fun... And cost affective for non football subscribers to sky that just watch BBC MOT on Saturday night like me...

Meanwhile another England post mortem will continue untill the coffin on this campian is nailed shut... Then the usual sack the manager waffle starts again... Every 4 years the simular headlines roll out .. After the past 48 years and 12 past World Cups we now look forward to doing it all again in 4 years time... Off to get the beers in ..

Regarding RBS rather a lack lustre week ..

kids and coaches, not enough good ones to go round. Its rare to see kids kicking a ball around in a park these days just to many distractions for the kid to go out in the rain and clarts to kick a ball about for 3 or 4 hours an evening. Coaches or the good ones seemed to have died away god knows why? hence the production line of raw talent has dried up.

What happened to all the hard defenders and skillful wingers Scotland exported to England on an almost monthly basis.....dried up at sauce lost to computer football where the thumbs are the new feet

The past 15 years has seen the top teams in the prem having Foreign players some the whole team of them...

Lets say from the start of the new season in August , their were no foreign players allowed in UK teams.

Then how many top teams would remain top teams...

I grant you that those with mega bucks would buy all the top English players to stay at the top of the prem.

Instant success is now wanted by top teams as the money and rewards are so high ... so they invest in more foreign players with better ability or they would not I assume buy them for multi millions... if they were not better...
