Pffffttt should never have told Rooney he'd a Mars bar in his pocket if he didn't want wrestling to the ground.

Looks like Hodgo is going to ruin an entertaining match by subbing half his team.

That was a great pass from Rooney.

Jesus Christ Pigshead! That was the most miserable excuse for a counter attack I've ever seen.

Coleman has been fantastic for Ireland tonight. If it wasn't for some of his clearances and last-ditch tackles the score could be in England's favour.

Andy Townsend talking absolute shite. All these U21 players in the squad should be going to the U21 Euros, they'll get more out of a tournament where they have a real chance of winning than they will out of a friendly trip to Brazil...

McCarthy and Coleman the two best players on the pitch.

This was as close as Keane will publicly come to ticking a box before announcing his retirement. Captained Ireland v England at Wembley? Check...

At times, watching Rooney play football is like watching a retarded fish try to swim - supposedly born to do it, but seems to struggle with the basics.

Finally Whelan off.

But Hoolahan still can't get on the pitch.

If I were Wes Hoolahan I'd tell Trapp to cram it where the sun don't shine.

That semi-sitter miss at the end aside, I think the Ox has had a decent game here tonight.

I like Ox and Theo on the wings, loads of pace and they are always available for counter attacks. It's just everything else is a bit shit.

That went much better than expected. Shame we gave away such a sloppy goal.

Excellent performances from Coleman, McCarthy, Long and Forde.

0/10 for Whelan.

Coleman motm. No surprise there, he was easily the best player on the pitch.

Unusual to see England be much better in the second half of a match than the first, but the lack of a proper forward is a serious concern. It's a shame Sturridge got injured, I was interested to see if he could do the job for England that he's been doing for Liverpool. Ox and Theo did well, Lamps had his moments, Cole and Baines were solid, Rooney was shit in the first half but shook off his hangover to wake up a little for the second. My big concern is still at CB. Cahill and Jags are capable enough defenders, but seem to struggle in an England shirt for some reason.

Understandable given that Ireland are always worse in the second half

Apparently we had 51% of the possession last night. We can't even do that against small eastern European teams at the Aviva!

Gary Lineker has had a pop: http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2013/may/30/roy-hodgson-england-gary-lineker

The England team's second top goalscorer ever, now a TV pundit, suggested it was a tactically regressive display from Roy Hodgson's side, describing it as "a step back to the dark ages of two lines of four".

"Don't like England playing this system," he wrote on Twitter. "So easy to play against. Brazil will thrash us if we line up the same way. Predictable and dated. It's not about playing in straight lines, it's about playing between the lines. Depth gives flexibility, passing alternatives, creativity."


While we all know 442 is the ugly smelly kid of school right now, it seems a bit harsh to have a go about the tactics in this instance I think. For a start, it wasn't a flat 442 England were playing, both Rooney and Sturridge were dropping deep, Walcott was frequently the most advanced player on the pitch and the Ox roamed about all over the place. Secondly, it was hardly the England team that would have started were it not for the usual army of players who pull out of the squad before the match maybe the 'depth' and 'flexibility' would have been a bit more possible. Hodgson only 16 outfield players available for the Brazil game ffs, fluidity is hardly going to be easy to come by (not least because it doesn't come naturally to English players anyway).
