Being German, I shouldn't yell too loud after the loss of yesterday. Being a Premier League Fan and always playing Arsenal in any soccer videogame I buy, I'm just plainly disappointed.
This might not be new to England, but it eventually has to happen: Gerrard or Lampard. As good as they are, one has to sit on the bench to make the team stronger. Gerrard and Lampard are great leaders, but two leaders besides each other doesn't work. Dot. Since Gerrard is the Captain, Lampard has to stay out.
Both of them are so afraid to do anything wrong, they lose all the class, this explosive way of playing which makes them so valuable for Liverpool or Chelsea.
I also think it was wrong to leave Walcott at home. The wing players don't do much pressure or give the idea they could actually score a goal.
Since ManU - Bayern Munich, Rooney isn't the same anymore. Not questioning his skills, but I don't understand why he runs deep into his own half to get the balls. He might think he's responsible for creating pressure, but how many times did they miss someone to pass the ball to in the offense then. He should play what he is - a forward.
This isn't going to be Englands World Cup.
At least I'm not French...

That's the spirit, Anelka!
