Just hope they don't play a team as skillful as New Zealand

Lets just hope they stop dicking around and put some in the back of the net. At least Pirlo is back tomorrow. Unfortunately, Buffon isnt. :(

Though Buffon is exceptional, we can't know for sure if he would have had the presence of mind to exit the net and stop the shot (that was offsides in the first place) that Marchetti let in.

Marchetti himself didn't do anything wrong. He didn't go above and beyond his duty as a goaltender, which Buffon MIGHT have done in his stead, but he can't be blamed for the tie.

We need to put guys like Pazzini and Di Natale in the game from the start. We need Pirlo to pull of some of his fancy, perfect passes. We need Cannavaro to either shape up or get off the goddamned field.

We also need for De Rossi to move farther up the pitch. The poor bastard keeps hanging back out of sheer terror that the shit-tastic defense will fall to pieces unless he lends a hand, but we need him MORE on offense. He's got good ball control, experience, and brains, and most of the guys like Montolivo and Camoranesi and the other jerks currently further up the field than he is have NONE of those qualities. Except experience for Camoranesi, I guess, but it doesn't seem to count for jack-shit since he's simply embarassing to watch.

Having Buffon back in net would be awesome, and it would probably even serve to boos the team's confidence a bit. But he's not THAT important, considering the level of game we're currently at, and the level we want to move towards. IF and when we manage to wake the fuck up and start playing decent soccer, THEN we can start worrying about getting the world's greatest goalie back in net.


Pure awesomeness. You must read it.

Yes. With Calamity James as a goal keeper there's no doubt England won't advance to the next round. :P

Also, no Wright-Phillips in the starting eleven?

The box totally fell down almost dashing my dreams. Luckily the quake so close to my rather pathetic media center knocked a shelf loose, so after throwing the PS2 and GameCube to the ground I made it better.

blah blah US offside.

the US needs to stop giving up so many great shots

England goal.

Great cross from Milner, Defoe nice finishing touch.

Get another one of those in, keep up that good play - Slovenia should pick it up, because they've not got much so far now.

Now let's hope England don't get complacent and let an easy one through! They've looked stronger in this game thus far, thank fuck.

Goal for England!

There was a bit of luck involved in that goal there :p The ball went straight for the goalie's head, but he parried it right over himself into the goal. He could've headed it clear if he had done nothing.

At the moment Slovenia and England are through. I'm hoping for the USA though.

The Slovanian goalie thought he was playing for England for a sec but remembered just in the nick of time he wasn't!

England are doing a good job so far.

Lol at the commentator saying the Slovenia goalie almost did a Robert Green.

Nearly had another lucky Green-esque goal there. So close. Hopefully we can keep the pressure on; if so we're bound to get another one in at some point.

ok, seriously guys. how hard is it to get your fucking KNEE OVER THE GODDAMN BALL WHEN YOURE 10 FEET FROM THE GOAL WITH A CLEAR SHOT?

also, if somebody takes a shot, why don't you stick around for a rebound garbage goal? It's not that much effort to stand there for an extra second.

GROAN.

He should keep to burning players/teams that have failed. We've had a gag about the French team going back in economy class and then upgrading themselves. It was marginally better.

1-0 half time. England need another goal, Slovenia have been disappointing, but they have something somewhere as their match with the US confirmed. It's good to see some great England play though. Halfway to redemption.

Also, Malachy: I had to look at your two photos a few times each - I giggled at the implied 'what happened between' image. I've been there, in the makeshift convenience creation business. It never works out, does it? Haha.

I wouldn't say England have played "fucking amazing" by any stretch of the imagination. They've done well and looked stronger than in previous matches, but they have to keep up the pressure and not let the 1-0 lead make them complacent.

There's still better teams out there than Slovenia that they'll have to face if they manage to keep up the lead. Still, I'm happy thus far. Come on, England!

Finish! We just need to finish. We're getting the chances but just need to follow through.
It's going to be interesting second half where both sides are going to have to end up throwing everybody forward to win.

Ooooow. Almost a dream start for England in the second half.

England sure plays a lot better than in their former matches. They just gotta be more efficient with their finishing.

apparently professional footballers still have the grade-school problems with offsides.

half of England's squad, and one Algerian in the last few minutes
