At least we won: England 3, Hungary 1

I’m confused, but at least I’m not the only one.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad we won.
I’m glad Theo Walcott made the record books.
I’m even glad that David Beckham had a decent game. Short on stamina maybe, but he can still deliver a cross!
What I’m puzzled about is our strategy. Is there a game plan? Sven didn’t seem to have one. And for that I’m concerned.
Oh yes- Lampard missed a penalty as well. That’s not going to work in a few days from now.

  1. I’m with ya! “somewhat”, but I think, there is are a lot of positives to take out of this game, sure, England wants to win the Cup and this should and could be there year but there is also the “grass is greener on the other side” syndrome to beware of as well. Clear as a bell, England has (with Defoe) the horses to beat at least 30 of the teams, it’s those last two that are of concern.

  2. I think there are a number of problems, starting up front with the fact that Michael Owen is not only not match fit, but he’s not the kind of player who can play the lone striker. Works better off Crouchie, but then you have the problem in central midfield of Stevie and Lamps, and no holding player. Stevie can play off Crouch, but he’s not really going to play off Owen in a five-man midfield. So while Becks and Cole and Stevie look up for it (even willing to cheat little Hungary out of a goal in a friendly!), there are too many gaps being plugged by playing men out of position…

  3. I agree with you Tony- too many players playing out of position is a recipe for failure. Sven should know better!!
    Tom – which countries are you thinking of as the “last two” – Brazil and ?
