Now, I am obviously no football expert, but I like to think I know a thing or two... Having watched tonights game, a couple of points. 1. It was not a bad game, but the outcome was decided by the keepers and the poor decisions of the England manager. Lets not forget Germany where well understrength. 2. Beckham was clearly injured, yet McClaren insisted on playing him for the full 90. 3. Substitutions at half time, I would have put my money on bringing SWP on in front of Richards who, along with Cole, was the most effective player on the pitch. That would have been some combo. Instead, he moves Richards into the centre and plays Brown at right back 4. Then, he brings on Crouch (suspended for the next game) and Dyer (30 appearances - no goals!) Needless to say, in a few minutes we resort to route 1 football. 5. SWP, who is having a good start for Chelsea this season finally comes on, BUT ON THE LEFT in place of Joe Cole, who was having a good game. Beckham continues to be poor. 6 I will now put my mortgage on Beckham starting against Israel, who is going to get 100 caps no matter how bad he plays. 7. Does McClaren know what he is doing?
