Without wanting to sound like an armchair manager, what the fuck are you playing at Capello?
Seriously, the team is playing unbelievably badly and I’m afraid I have to lay the blame with Capello. I normally defend managers when people criticise them because the 11 players on the pitch are supposed to be professionals and if tactics aren’t working they should use their initiative but in this case there are clearly no tactics to change.
The players are milling round the pitch, completely clueless. They’re getting the ball and haven’t got a clue what to do with it. The team is obviously suffering from having no time to practice together as a team because they don’t know who they’re going to be playing with until 2 hours before the game starts.
And why is Wayne Rooney still playing? I really never thought I would say this but he’s a liability right now. He’s worried about picking up an injury, he’s backing off from tackles and tonight he was limping at one point. Rest him if that’s what he needs but he shouldn’t be playing if he’s not up to the job.
