Well don’t really want to say I said so but that was frigging rubbish tonight. Issues:
– Micah Richards surely the best young defender in the country. Exposed and played DB off the field
– Paul Robinson surely not totally at fault for the goal. He got caught out by a wicked under-the-bar-cross that was never meant. What did James do when he came on?
– DB rubbish I thought in terms of effort. He’s crocked for christs’s sake.
– Why didn’t SRPhillips play on the right? How often does he play on the left? For f*cks sake McClaren.
– Why didn’t Gareth Barry replace Joe Cole directly on the left instead of into midfield?
– Owen rubbish and Smith too. What on earth is he (Smith) doing at NU?
– Dyer rubbish
– Crouch never touched the ball
That apart I thought McClaren had a great game. NOT!!!! There were no positives apart from Richards. Hopeless waste of time the whole thing. Please Brainiac B give somebody with a strategic sense of purpose a chance. I’ll happily do it for £50k and I promise I’ll not make these stupid frigging selections. Honest to god it’s just crap. Doesn’t anybody at the FA see it like we all do? I’m just so happy that NI got a result tonight. In fact, I’m pleased for Wales, Scotland and Ireland tonight who also had great results. What’s the chances Wembley will be full next match? Not good.
