Well it's been rubbish hasn't it?
It was good to see the Ivory Coast and Portugal play for a draw and just see who can beat North Korea by the most goals. So many draws and nobody has been that good. Germany were alright but Australia were absolutely useless.
To give my opinion on england... I really don't like Capello's policy of telling the players 2 hours before kick off who is playing. I saw an interview with Alex Ferguson once and he was asked "What do you say to the players before kick off?" he replied "I don't see the players the morning of the game, if they don't know what they're supposed to be doing just before the game then we have no chance". I would hope that the players NOW would know if they're playing friday, and know exactly what they're supposed to be doing.
Also, there was all this talk about squad selection. Why take Dawson and Upson if when King gets injured we're going to play Carragher? Surely we wasting a player?! Take Dawson incase King, Carragher and Upson get injured? Alot has been said about Joe Cole not coming on for Milner (who was a waste of time) and Robert Green (who would have been my 3rd choice keeper). If we win the group, then not only do we miss germany, we also get a not bad Quarter Final of probably France who didn't look all that, however I'm not convinced we're good enough to win the tournament.
