Ok, I'll admit it that now the game is underway and there's a lively atmosphere at Wembley that I'm actually relishing it a bit now

This is brilliant, I am thoroughly enjoying this.

Scotland are bright, instinctive and patient. England are a bumbling mess of mistakes, self-concern and ego. Scotland thoroughly deserving of their lead and I'm happy for their realistic, passionate and highly-charged supporters, I'm a quarter-Scottish and I couldn't be happier for them.

Yes, Joe Hart was at fault, so was his defence. Four of them charged at Morrison, all blocking Hart's view and not one of them got a touch. One of those kind of moments when you think, "yep, that's MY England..."

After several games of useful discipline, Steven Gerrard has turned back into his eye-rollingly frustrating alter-ego Hollywood Gerrard.

England are nowhere in this game. Passing, movement, control, concentration have all been terrible. It may have been a howler that let in the goal, but Scotland probably deserve to be in the lead.

No movement off the ball whatsoever. Danny Welbeck has been utter gash, I've come to the conclusion, and fuck it, he is only in the squad because he plays for Man United?

If he'd signed for Sunderland, he's be nowhere near the team and everyone knows it...

I thought Theo had Walcotted that chance, but he somehow managed to finish it off. Great counter attack.

While I think he's a more useful player than he's typically given credit for, I reckon a blind, one-legged octogenarian would be a better finisher than Tom Cleverly. I think he might actually be allergic to putting the ball in the back of the net.

We wuz just warming up. If we use the pace we can do alright cos we hit Walcott with the ball, when we try to pass around it ends up with Welbeck.

Yeah, I like Clevs. Always seems to be in space and keeps it simple, Gerrard is definitely the most expendable part of that midfield. He's the Bruce Willis of the England team.

Frank Lampard. Finally we get a chance to see what this young upstart can do!

I thought he handballed that, but it was a great finish.

Jesus, how did he miss that?

Well despite my reservations beforehand that was a thoroughly entertaining match. It's be nice if we didn't have to wait another 14 years before getting the opportunity to stick it in to the sweaties again

As a Scotsman obviously I'm disappointed by the result, however it was a damn good game that both teams were well up for and I think all the fans enjoyed it too. Would like to see this fixture happen more regularly than once in 14 years again.

I only watched the second half but I was thoroughly entertained. Admittedly, I gave up on the England team in about '97, so was just hoping for entertainment, and it was great.
Definitely a fixture that should be happening every year, now that the bridge in quality between the teams is not there anymore

Yep a friendly which exceeded expectations, very entertaining.

The Lambert story is a great one and for me he deserves to at least make the squad next time.

I would go with Lampard over Gerrard (yes I know he's the captain) anyway Gerrard had a iffy season last year and looked very avenge on Wednesday. When coming on Lampard made a impact and is more of a goal threat which with a struggling front line England maybe could do with.

It took them a month to come up with such a dull, uninspired choice?

Yep,a very dour negative choice.
Personally I would've went for Hoddle.England played some good technical football under him,even if he was abit of a douche regarding certain players (Beckham).

I wouldn't let Hoddle anywhere near the youth teams. He's a cold, aloof weirdo who hasn't got a clue about how to handle players.

Anyway, it's uninspiring but predictable that Southgate got the job. He's an FA lickspittal and will do whatever he's told.
