    The Jester is good if you want a fight with some squaddies from the castle.

    Except it's not summer... summer here is in December-March. Most games are going to be after 12 oclock, so likely the average temperature is going to 26C which isn't too bad.

    Or are you guys like canadians? :p

    ehh, its usually 60%-70% in my city. but that's totally negated to the fact that it's a beach/coast city so there is always a strong breeze from the ocean.

    Though inland cities like brasilia etc might be worse for "wind" but they're generally lower in humidity. right now brasilia is 39% so yeah.

    hmm what a bad game I saw yesterday. I thought it could not get any worse but it did. pure defensive play , against Wales FFS!!
    I rather see them go down with honour then afraid of the opponent!

    Van Gaal has to face the fact that our team cant play 4-4-2

    At least you have a defense, unlike England!

    You can't get very far without a good defense but you can win a cup without a good attack.

    I wouldnt panic too much mate, those were 2nd choice defenders. It was practically England B vs Ecuador A. and they arent a bad team. Millner was right back, says a lot! Quite impressed by Ox(hope he is okay) and Barkley tho.

    Stupid tackle by Sterling and bad reaction from Valencia.

    Call me a pessimist but I don't rate our first choice defenders either, Cahill is about the only genuinely top class player from the lot. We wont have the intelligence or quality to beat Italy or Uraguay and we're going out in the first round for sure.

    Thats true, but still better than Smalling disaster :) Shaw is a little bit raw at international level too, maybe give him a run vs Costa Rica. i hope Rooney pulls himself together and plays like he does for United with Sturridge along side him. Dont put him on the left anymore.

    I would actually pick Shaw. I saw Everton vs Saints at the end of last season and Shaw looks like the better defender. Yes, Baines is more of an attacking threat but with a lack of quality in the rest of the defence, I would go with Shaw. Infact I would've picked Cole but there you go....

    i wouldnt mind either to be honest. I wonder if Gerrard and Henderson will play well in the middle for England as they did for Liverpool this season. Only position that is really lacking anyone is left wing! Either way there wont be much expectation this year, so hopefullythey will just go out and enjoy themself.

    Appears a bit hostile, towards someone only trying to have a laugh;especially the attempted belittlement via use of the word 'comedienne'. Are you some sort of sexist that deprecates women as mock worthy ?


    Enjoy your footy ya prat.

    I dunno about that, almost every Brazilian International team ive seen since 1982 has had a very sloppy defence apart from 1994 and they've won it 5 times. Depends on how good you are at keeping the ball which the Brazilians are masters. The best defence i ever seen was the Italian Franco Baresi era, the finest defence ever in my opinion. Germany Defence prior to 1996 before all the old battle-hardened players retired were one of the best i ever seen also.

    Oh grow up! Let's keep this thread as it should be. Fun and no bs.

    P.S and yes making comments like "am gonna have a drink every time england concede" is fairly childish/moronic. I dont care if you do or not but take your crap elsewhere. Oh and the comedienne was unintentional btw..

    P.P.S what was Roy doing? Milner def not right back and play Rooney where he is meant to play. That red card was harsh on Sterling but I could understand Valencia might have been pissed off..

    Gave the ball away far 2 much, defense looks dodgy. Well I dont think the milner situation helped.

    Passing has to be better.

    Oxlade chamberlain probably out and Wilshere scares me with his runs from inside our half...

    I doubt we will ever see 4-4-2 again, van Gaal practically said that himself after the game. It will be te oldskool 4-3-3 from now on against teams like Wales.
