    ****e group doesn't hurt either.

    I mean dude, they played Kazakhstan.. That's where Borat's from, innit?

    Capello has them playing well, but it'll be interesting to see how they fare against a real team.

    Kazakhstan isn't even the worse team in the goup. Andorra has lost all 9 games. They whipped a very good Croatia team both times they played. 4-1 in Zagreb and 5-1 at home. They better hope someone is in good form to partner with Rooney next summer.

    Ummmmm Croatia(Former world cup semi-finalist), Ukraine(Last world cup quarter finalist) take those two and add Belarus and you have three of the most hostile away crowds to visit. Sure it was not the toughest group, but they won all their games and crushed the other group favourite, twice no less.

    Nice to knock Spurs down a peg.

    Ironically, it seemed United turned up the intensity when Scholes got sent off and Spurs took their foot off the pedal.

    Rooney, Evra, Fletcher, and Anderson were all fantastic today.

    Crouch is such a donkey, I understand he wins a lot of balls in the air but he is that much better than the Russian guy? He's certainly not that much more skilled.

    Ah, then you missed the Arsenal vs. Man City match.

    I did not see it, I had to listen to it on a BBC feed on a XM but it was a horrible game for the Gunners........a freaky own goal by Almunia, Van Persie hit a post (although he did score another) and another goal missed by about two inches. And the D was shaky.

    Like I said, I did not see it but it sounded like the wheels came off for the Gunners after Adebayor stomped on Van Persie. The BBC guys made it sound like Adebayor should have been red carded for it, they said he drew blood, but the ref must have missed it.


    Then Adebayor scores a couple minutes after he stomps Van Persie and he streaks down to the Arsenal fan section, taunts them and nearly causes them to riot.

    All the talk in the after game commentary was about the "shameful conduct" of Adebayor and how he may be in a bit of trouble for his actions when it gets reviewed by League officials. We will have to see if anything comes of it.

    Adebayor's celebration

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oe8CXncySfo"]YouTube - Manchester City vs Arsenal (Adebayor goal)!![/ame]

    The stamp

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-c4A5UxzrCg"]YouTube - Adebayor stamps on Van Persie![/ame]

    He is a petulant wxxxer and always will be, he actually appologised afterwards but it was half hearted, and he basically blames the Arsenal fans for a build up in fustration that he vented yesterday.

    Yes those same Arsenal fans that paid his inflated wages for three years. The sad thing is the dude is a great striker. When I saw him heading up the pitch I knew what he was up to and was hoping for a hamstring pull, alas no.

    Are you ready to excuse idiots like Carlos Quiroz and Maradona for playing in tough groups?

    Point being, at the moment, England ARE a real team. Anyone who sees the changes Capello is making for the English squad knows this.

    **** group or not, England's play was getting better and better from the start to the finish of group play, and FINISHED 8-0.

    Because of Capello, England has turned into a possession team, one that patiently bides its time before exploiting their opponents.

    I saw the highlights on the EPL Review show. The stamp was a stamp, but Van Persie had just come flying in at him.

    he's lucky no one among those arsenal fans threw a brick at him

    Didn't say they weren't a REAL team. Said I wanted to see them play a REAL team.

    They're playing well under Capello, I just found their group a little... interesting.
