NIR 1 England 0
No less than NI deserve........and a score that flatters England.
Wonder when the FA will sack the gutless Swede
And congrats to Scotland!
can't believe it !
we lost and N.I. were 22-1 to win at home !
bye bye Sven
It isn't looking good for our Sven.
4-5-1. What was he thinking? It wasn't as if we were against a side where we would need such a defensively minded formation.
If he did want to change things a bit, then 3-5-2 would have played much more to our strengths.
Still, it is the first ever qualifying game that we've lost under Sven.
Thought it was a stroke of tactical genius to play Rooney on the left and our best crosser of the ball in front of the back four. I can't tell you how delighted I was when Joe Cole was brought on the right and Gerrard played left in the second half.....as for when Mr Inspiration, Owen Hargreaves was brought on.....
I take it Sven could only be postioning himself for the job as next N Ireland manager, not that he's got a chance of that. Maybe San Marino are looking to hire, or the Papua New Guinean Curling team??
Well done Northern Ireland (nice to see a couple of Bham City players doing well!)
Bad, bad day for English Football, right another glass of Talisker before bed....
>>Bad, bad day for English Football
Well 'our' Laurie Sanchez is English so thats some consolation eh ?
PS I thought your 1 : 0 vs Wales was pretty poor but this is just unreal !?
You would have thought that, of all managers, Sven could have inspired his team to score away from home
Yes oooops Steve this is one for the sports forum.
