Your probably right I knew there would be references to brown Fletcher Morrison but those three have been part of numerous failed campaigns now.

We also need to get away from the constant picking of the wigan. They are all guaranteed a start just because they are on thee books of a struggling English premier side
Just criticising players isn't much use unless we can suggest better ones and moaning incessantly about the national team being terrible isn't going to make it any better. Instead of wallowing in misery, there are actually some small things we could change that would make a big difference. Playing a genuine defensive midfielder would be a start. We put out a side tonight in which the midfield didn't have a single player who could tackle or defend properly. In the modern game that's just as idiotic as Levein's decision to play without a striker in Prague.

We have poor players, but a far bigger problem in my opinion is what happens off the park. Any manager who dares to play a balanced team is pilloried for being negative, so we end up with completely disjointed setups like the one we had tonight. If we're as bad as the results suggest then we should be putting ten men behind the ball and playing on the counter-attack. We certainly shouldn't be playing a load of attacking midfielders and trying to hammer the opposition. Greece circa 2004 is the model we should be trying to emulate, not Brazil 1970.
