Full Time - Gernamy 4-1 England

Well I actually wish I was on here complainign about the goal that was, but wasn't.

Sadly we were out-matched, out-played and out-thought.  I actually want to say it was men vs boys....old men vs boys who were far better.  Kinda like how the day when the kids grow up and beat their dads.

So what went wrong.  Well everything I mentioned.

1) Milner/Johnson.

Milner got in one cross of any menace.  Johnson was woeful, no threat going forward and got skinned mercilessly.

2) Rooney

Did he play? He had a couple of moments of menace but nothing I saw

3) Barry

Fuck me he was dreadful.  Gave it away a shitton, lost Ozel on every occasion (see 3 minutes in). 

4) Terry/Upson

See the First goal....and the 2nd and 3rd and 4th.  Old, no speed and passsed it at this level.

5) The Referee


That plus the fact Gerrard never got the ball.  Ozel plays in the free role for Germany.  Why does Gerrard not play this role for England??? Why is he stuck on the left where he's NOT a Left Midfielder?!!

Frank Lampard was the only player with any credit imo.  He hit the bar twice including a blatant goal and a couple of decent shots but when he's your 2nd best player behind your keeper, that shows everything.

Congratulations to Germany though, you can only beat what's in front of you and they buried us without mercy and it'll be interesting to see how far they go.  Good Luck for the rest of the World Cup.. At least I can relax now I guess.

As for the aftermath, we have to wait and see.
