Wasn't the pitch f@acking awful though? If the only way we can fund a national stadium is by hosting utter
shite NFL 5 days before an important Euro qualifier we may as well have left Wembley as it was - i am old enough
to remember Wembley as an Iconic stadium with a playing surface envied throughout the world, now its just a corporate
sellout just to pay for its self.
Sad.

Quoted from Maringer
Nice third goal with an excellent finish from Welbeck. Surprising that his international scoring ratio is so much better than his record for his clubs!

As expected, it looks like we'll walk this group but there hasn't been much on show to indicate that we'll do any better in the 2016 Euro Champs than in the last couple of tournaments.

The Under-21s are doing well, so perhaps one or two of them will step up to the senior team during the next couple of years?


You cant win a tournament without a world class striker and we just dont have one at the moment as highlighted in the last world cup. Two free headers inside 12 yards for our main strikers and neither even hit the target....a penalty, a miss hit and one well worked goal. Hardly convincing.
Also although England worked very hard to regain possession quickly tonight, in truth the better sides in Europe/World dont need that quality as they dont give it away as much in the first place.

Like Barca at their peak who were well known for sitting off their opponents and not closing down quickly.

Quoted from MyDogsThoughts
Listened to it on the radio while driving home from the main event: sounded awful.
Wouldent say it was awful. Thought England played with good urgency in the first half and nice to see us come from a goal behind and take the 3 points

Five Live were more concerned with a fly in the commentary box than the game.
