dont know if anyone read phils mcnulty's blog on the bbc website, but he sums up the kind of media thats wrong in our country. 2 days ago he was writing blogs on "england in crisis, a squad divided" and now its "capello restores control" one extreme to the other, just bullshit. one thing the world cup has highlighted to me is just how much i loathe the majority of the media
I Agree that the media are plain **** stirrers, and i also believe they are piling the pressure on the england players.
The headline of E.A.S.Y (england, Algeria, Slovenia, Yanks ) is just an example.
No offence to the english people here, but most of you guys expected so much of your players, now look:S
Hope You's Go Through Though (A)

What Terry said is right and his passion was there for all to see, but he should never have said it infront of the press -- he should have gone to Capello because, to be honest, Terry knows more than anyone that the media would latch onto this. He isn't even the team captain so he had no right to try and force Capello's hand like he did.

exactly, this is capello, not sven, or mcclaren. there could be only one winner, and it wasnt going to be the chelsea man

apparently capello is hard to aproach as a manager and when terry was captain he did go to capello alot because as you can see he is forceful. it dosent seem to me gerrard is the type to try and force his opinion on capello so the only way for terry to get his point across was through the media.

its not just expecting loads. i just expect some sort of perfomance. not the drivel we have seen. but you're right, the hype and expectation is utterly insane

I Dont Particularly Agree, Gerrard has been captain of liverpool for more than a good while now, he knows how to get what he wants and im sure he had a few "discussions" with Benitez during his tenure.
i think JT is naturally an outspoken personality Though :p

Ahh yeah like i said, most. But almost everyone in english, and irish media, before this world cup, had expected this english team to pretty much run-a-muck in the group. But in this type of competition you are always guarenteed surprises. New Zealand And Chile are great examples (H)

oh yer without a dout, slovenia are no mugs but its a team england should be beating without much dout in our heads.
But when you think of the adrenaline rush slovenia will have.
a chance to knock one of the powerhouses of world football out of the world cup, cant get bigger than that.
i dont want to start the whole Henry handball thing again, but the performance our lads put out against the french was Quality, just shows how a big occaision can have a really positive effect on the "underdoggs" :)

yeah i love the way the chillians play, just attack, attack attack, but somehow they have a really stable defence, plus, alexis sanchez and vidal have been immense (H)

i see were your coming from mate and oh my god i would much rather have seen ireland in the world cup than france and you definatly deserved it. with england even if we had nicked a 1-0 win against algeria we would still be moaning about the performance, if we had battered algeria and the game endedn 0-0 then i dont think we would be talking about all this but we cant even keep hold off the ball. about the 60th minute i was counting and we couldnt string 3 passes together now that is absolutely woeful at any level.

About The English Performance: On RTE(irish tv channel, dont know if you guys have it) Graham Soones(sp) showed many examples of the english players slacking in possesion, and they couldnt string 3 five yard passes in a row. lampard was lazy, lennon didnt go past his man once, and gerrard was moved around like a headless chicken, but we all know this team can do much better and lets hope they do(H)
