He might end up falling short of Charlton's goalscoring record?

Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
Man Utd will let him go in January and will have to pay a large percentage of his wages. He has 20minths left of £300k pw

If Joe Hart can end up at Torino from Man City to get a game could Wayne Rooney be the answer to West Ham's striking problems this season?

Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
To be fair we just don't have the players with any quality and even when we did have the players like the "Golden Generation" we were still mostly pretty poor bar the odd result.

What is frightening though is if you look at West Ham players over the years who either didn't play for England or hardly got a look in. Players like Parkes, Devonshire, Billy Bonds, Alvin Martin, Tony Gale, Cottee, Mark Ward, Pop Robson, Keith Robson, Julian Dicks, and plenty more. Those players had more talent that the current bunch of "superstars"!!!

Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
Stewie hit the nail on the head when he said we have no IDENTITY. The last manager / coach that gave England a semblance of a recognisable style and method of play was spastic-worrier HODDLE, as did EL TEL and his CHRISTMAS TREE.

Since those two we have had a succession of shithouses who have consistently thrown largely the best 11 players irrespective of position or form, into whatever formation is flavour of the day, serving neither the individuals or the team.

Agree with your points mate. But for me it's not just based on the result. I watch England and it's like pulling teeth. It's about as exciting as watching paint dry and as inspiring as a turnip.

Why can't any manager get he England players to play with some flair, creativity and some pace. It's all sideways, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass and then the hot potato comes in and we lose it.

It's fucking turgid.

Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
I agree that I'd rather him not even be there.

Just be nice for him if he could get himself a cap, though it's probably only likely if Manchester United and Liverpool share a plane somewhere and it crashes.

Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
I didn't say that. You seem to be getting a bit flustered so I'll leave you to it.

At the end of the day, he's not going to play unless we get a fair few injuries so I'd rather he was at home training with West Ham than flying around with England and not playing a single minute.

Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
So Antonio can never control a football then no?

Because the rest of the England team all control it so well themselves don't they!!

What a crock of shit.

Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
I'd imagine ANTONIO is behind ANDROS in the pecking order still. Rightly so, in fairness, given ANDROS' performances at international level.

As for LINGARD, if STERLING wasn't fit he wouldn't have been playing. Personally, I think he's toilet - but he's scored the winning goal in the FA Cup Final, and he's a player that SOUTHERS knows well from the u21s, so given he only had 5 days to work with the players, it's not massively surprising he chose someone he's familiar with.

Buster 11:54 Wed Oct 12
Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
So you want him out wide but rubbish claims that a winger needs to be able to control a football?

Wingers don't get picked for England based on their ability to head a ball. HTH.

Grumpster 11:54 Wed Oct 12
Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
I don't want him up front for us either, he's not a striker and his strength is ghosting in from the wide positions.

Just think England need a change and picking a useless fucker purely because he plays for Man Utd wasn't the change we were all expecting or wanting!

Grumpster 11:52 Wed Oct 12
Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
Can't see that a single person has said they want him up front.

I want him in Lingard's place, as that little cunt is shit.

Is Southgate RUINING poor Antonio like nasty Bilic has?

Buster 11:49 Wed Oct 12
Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
If Antonio played for STOKE and had scored the same goals as he had for us, not one person on this thread would be shouting for him to be in the squad, let alone up front.

You can have that one for nothing.

Buster 11:47 Wed Oct 12
Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
You want Antonio to go up front for England just because he's scored a few headed goals at club level, and that's the only attribute you're claiming he needs. It's a fucking ridiculous notion.

I didn't see him cleaning up when he played up top last week?

Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
Eric DIRE
Jordan BENDERSON
Theo LOLCOTT
KYLE WANKER
Dele LOLi
Daniel "Fresh PONCE of BELL-END" SturriCUNT

I admit, I ran out of ideas. Just like this shit team.

Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
What you're failing to realise Buster is that all we keep doing is playing the same sort of players and the same way which makes it so fucking easy to neutralise.

If you have someone in there offering something different, then it changes the teams dynamics when it isn't going our way.

England are currently set up to get the ball out wide and cross it in and every cunt in there is either shit with their head or are 5 feet tall, so it's pointless and no surprise that the goals have dried up.

Antonio is a far better player than you give him credit for, though I suppose it's par for the course for our fans to slag off our own players.

Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
Alli, Lingard and especially Walcott were all poor against mediocre opposition. Walcott should have been taken off before half time. But there again Henderson and Dier were effectively playing as additional centre backs. Most of their passes were sideways and backwards, no incisive passes, no committing an opponent.
Why do they have to continually take the ball off our centre backs? Aren't the centre backs allowed to play the ball forwards?

Do we really need two holding midfield players playing a country of two million people?

I agree that Antonio is not a typical international footballer but at least he would have run at the defender. He would mis-control it sometimes, trip over his own feet once or twice, but he would beat the full back some times. Walcott didn't even try to beat his man.

Buster 11:38 Wed Oct 12
Re: Rooney dropped vs Slovenia
So you only need to be able to head a ball to make it as an international footballer? And ball control isn't a necessity for a winger?

Fucking hell, the things you learn on here.
