    I'll start. 1-0 to Eng

    or

    0-0, 1-1

    Be interesting to see how it turns out tonight. In other news: Sven "I will never quit blah blah I'm too stubborn blah blah I'll only leave on the results blah blah I'll see out my contract till 2008 etc"

    Presumably getting into the World Cup is what he means

    N.B If I was England manager, the result tonight would most likely be 4-0 to us :D :rolleyes:

    3-1 England. A solid display without Mr Beckham.

    Would you quit a 3/4 year contract at 4million pounds a year ?

    Neither will Sven.

    The FA would have to push him, which I don't think they can afford to do.

    The FA is to blame for giving him this contract, should have let him go to Chelsea - then the premiership might be a bit more exciting.

    1-0 to England also. I'm being optimistic but I don't think we're capable of scoring too many at the moment.

    0-0

    Another dreary boring match.


    Or...

    4-0 as England finally find their feet and play their hearts out to show that they can really do it.

    Think the former is more likely though...

    I think Poland will beat us as they are in very good form at the moment. They will have 7,000 fans there tonight (probably mostly from this country) and will perform at their best as beating England is what it's all about.
    2-1 to Poland is my prediction.
    I can't believe how fed up I am of the FA and the England management who are responsible for wasting one of the best squads of players we've ever had :mad:

    If only Chelski got Sven....

    SWP would be playing week in week out for bottom half of table City. Crespo would have stayed in Italy, so Wigan get shock opening day draw

    Hell, Chelsea probably would have finished 5th

    I reckon about 3-1
    The pressure to qualify is off.
    The pressure to show how commited they are is on.
    This combination "could" give us a good match.

    Couldn't agree more. I've been watching football for more than 50 years (yes I am that old) and we have never had such talented players as we do today.

    Ireland, Switzerland, France or Israel

    Who do you reckon ppl?

    I'm suspicious that France conveniently have Cyprus for last match, whereas its Irl v Swiss and Israel have played all matches

    So I'm going France and Swiss

    But

    Did you know France have NEVER qualified for World finals? Only getting in '98 as hosts, then '02 as holders

    0-0 seems quite believable.

    Great flicked goal from Owen, from Joe Cole's shot (that wasn't going in)

    But the Pole's equaliser was equally impressive

    Owen will surely get the all time record?

    Eng performance has great energy and pressing lacking before

    King has been good - keep him then have either Lampard or Gerrard as other mid, playing more attacking

    Not bad first half performance. Dodgy defending for the equalizer though, don't you think?

    Well, got drawn to the left, but not really glaring mistake, but should have stayed alert. Still good performance

    Zidane scores, after 200 odd pass move, starting from keeper. Watch out Ingerland!

    SWP obviously should start ahead of Becks now. Pace + skill trumps crosses and giving cheap fouls in my book

    Bye, 2nd half is on

    Fantastic volley from Lampard

    King was fantastic

    Think SWP was injured, tired or precaution for 1dt half knock

    Don't need Beckham to inspire them - hope he is worried. This England team don't need beckham

    Robinson
    G.Neville - Terry - Campbell/Ferdinand - A.Cole
    SWP - King - Lampard/Gerrard - Joe Cole
    Rooney - Owen

    Either choice = world class

    Eng need to play high tempo, pressing game. Pace, skill and creativity of SWP and Cole allows this. With Becks? No chance

    Lampard is better than Gerrard as AMC, but if Lampards out, Steven isn't too bad of a replacement

    What, no 3 centre backs?? :devil:

    King and Rooney was the difference today. Rooney picking the ball up from deep and running with it and King soaking up the pressure allowing the midfielders to break forward and join him.

    Personally I still think I would go for a midfield of Lampard, Gerrard and Becks in front of King. I think Gerrard is too good to leave on the bench and would play much better knowing his defensive duties were more limited with King behind him.

    I haven't seen much of them recently, but what I find amazing is Van Basten coming from no where and no real coaching experience and doing a top job. Much like Rijkard last time.

    England at least played in a more positive light this time. A reasonable first half, and ok second. Poland though, looked as though they were in 2nd gear for most of the game. Their passing among the forwards was dire. England hardly had to do much to contain them, and on the first occasion they made a serious attempt on goal they scored! :eek:

    The commentators once again provided the most entertainment. Le Saux is dire. A 'toady in waiting' ready made for Linekers job................... Back in the studio, they too were a little over-enthused by Englands performance against a Poland team that only bothered to seriously attack twice in the whole game.......... :D

    Who says Politicans have cornered the market in spin? ;)

    Roll on Germany!
