..but USA get top billing for next stage.


Much better performance barring last 10 minutes

And I even got Google mapping to work whilst listening.

Even though it means we're runners up by gazbo (4.00 / 4) #1 Wed Jun 23, 2010 at 11:57:42 AM EST
I'm glad USA went through. They certainly deserved it.

I recommend always assuming 7th normal form where items in a text column are not allowed to rhyme.

They played better than us overall in that group.

I think England played better than the US in two of the games, but the other one was an absolute stinker, which makes the US better on average, and much more consistent.

that was close. by aphrael (2.00 / 0) #3 Wed Jun 23, 2010 at 12:03:10 PM EST
we almost went home tail between legs again. donovan has a history of choking under high pressure; it was fantastic to see him carry it off this time.

and: first in group. the US hasn't done that before.

A pretty good performance by TPD (4.00 / 2) #6 Wed Jun 23, 2010 at 12:34:41 PM EST
Though I think the commentators got a bit carried by the fact we weren't terrible, but I still think it we're some way off scaring the better teams in the competition. That's not to say we can't raise our game to that level, but we need a fit and sharp Rooney and that looks a long way off.


why sit, when you can sit and swivel with The Ab-SwivellerTM
That commentator by yicky yacky (4.00 / 1) #7 Wed Jun 23, 2010 at 12:47:39 PM EST

was terrible. Presumptuous, bellicose, arrogant, jingoistic etc. Was it Steve Wilson? He should be transferred to ITV where he belongs and never let loose on an England game again.

It appears I have defamed Steve Wilson. by yicky yacky (2.00 / 0) #10 Thu Jun 24, 2010 at 07:38:38 AM EST

It was Guy Mowbray.
