From what I've seen of the first 20 mins of the second half, David Beckham is absolutely rubbing McLaren's face into shit!
Totally agree! It's been a long time since we've seen balls sprayed around like that from an Englishman, and Owen always seems to know just what's on Beckham's mind (which was probably were the fxck is Smith?)
It's alright having a jet propelled kid zooming up and down the line, but if their have nothing at the end of it they are simply wasting their energy, and to be honest, I've seen nothing from Lennon or SWP since Beckham was snubbed. Maybe McLaren didn't take Beckham off to save him for midweek, maybe he took him off before he embarresed him any further. Beckham wasn't outstanding, but he was for from awful! And provided us with something England have seriously been missing.
Will someone pleeeeeeease grab McLaren, take him into a quite corner and don't stop slapping him until he realises that LAMPARD AND GERRARD DOES NOT WORK!!
Gerrard played very well in the holding role, but that's no use to England, we need to see him were he is best, with darting runs towards the Brazilian goal. Why play Gerrard there when we have the likes of Hargreaves, Carrick and King who specialise in that position? Because God knows were Lampard was, was he playing cards on the halfway line with Smith?
Owen looks as if he's getting there, with some good movement, but is probably a few games short. Everyone gave Gerrard the MOTM, and though he did play very well, I personaly thought Terry was the best player on the pitch last night.
