The best team go through.
We were screwed - as predicted.
Agree absolutely that Italy deserved it, would have been a terrible robbery and injustice if they didn't win.
Your reason for why we were screwed was bollocks though lol.....Scott Parker was one of our best players the whole tournament (Gerrard best overall) and he worked his arse off....Its not glamorous but the spade work is important, and we wouldn't have got this far otherwise.
If you want to point a figure at one or two players try Ashley "waste of fecking space" Young as I said earlier in the thread, which has nowt to do with him missing a penalty (can happen to the best)....that was just the icing on the CAKE OF FAILURE. What does he do? What is his purpose? Why does he even exist?
He is a weakling. He has no Heart or Courage. He is a pile of steaming useless wank.
The only 'consistency' in his game is that he is consistently shyte
. Rooney was shyte as well tbh, though to a far lesser extent.
Not sure WTF Roy Hodgson was thinking telling the team not to press and give their best playmaker Perlo half an hour on the ball every time he got it (he ran the whole show), or why he didn't seem to be clicking that the offside trap was not working against Balloteli. Sh*t manager + Sh*t team = epic failure lol.
Can't fault them for effort though, proud of them for trying their best. Its just that the ability is not there and ye can't polish a turd....end of story.
Ah well. So it goes. Still looking forward to the semis though, will be interesting.
