Rose played well second half against Brazil. Shame about his first half performance though. Still can't see how Zaha didn't get a spot in the team.

The Lions show a lot more passion, I guess. On another note, what are the fans going to sing apart from Rule Britannia?

Is simple really.
Rose "plays" for Spurs.
Sinclair plays for Swansea.

Pearce seems more like a giver than a receiver. Prob why Rose always starts the games gingerly.

As for team GB, if most of you can't give a shit stop bloody watching it. Some of you must live miserable lives. You are all so ******* down all the time. "Everything is shit"... blah blah blah - you bore the crap out of me.

ps. Team GB are doing an ok job against a physical team. Sturridge doesn't look fit though. Wish Rhodes was in the squad - we really lack a natural striker in this team.

Putting my Alan Hansen hat on ;)

I dont think he could have done because when the ball was released the striker was also inline the center backs, the striker made a good bending run from the left wing but the right back didnt track him at all, very poor defending, he was actually a few yards ahead of him and would have got to the ball first if he didnt just stop.

Butland - 7: Did well other than 'that' kick. Looks like a very good prospect.
Taylor - 7.5: A solid performance. Shows a lot of passion and wasn't afraid to get stuck in despite being the victim of some big challenges.
Richards - 6: I'm a fan of his at right back, but starting to believe he is a liability at CB.
Caulker - 8: Very solid and has good pace too. Good performance.
Bertrand - 6.5: Look vulnerable at times and his performance was below that of Taylor's on the other side.
Allen - 6.5: Keeps it calm at the back, but he is one of these sideways passers. Maybe that is what we need to keep the ball though? Went off injured
Cleverley - 6.5: Again keeps the ball quite well, but doesn't do much with it. Too many of these type of players mean we lack creativity through the middle.
Rose - 8: Thought he had a very good game today. Attacked well down the left, won a few good headers against taller opposition and generally looked a threat.
Bellamy - 7: Took his goal well and worked some good moves down the right hand side with Taylor.
Giggs - 6.5: The odd nice pass and set-piece, but to me he looks 38. Beckham would have been better in his role. Worries me that he can't last 90 minutes.
Sturridge - 4: Doesn't look like he has recovered from his illness. Desperation from Pearce by keeping him in the squad.

Ramsey - 8: Looked good on the ball and actually gave us some creativity through the middle when he came on. Should start against UAE.
Sordell - 6: Works hard, but he looked out of his depth at this level
Cork - 5: Didn't do much when he came on


To be honest, now having seen the team play twice, I can see why Zaha wasn't pick over Rose. We are playing a 4-5-1 system where Rose has to come back quite deep and move into a compact middle. Zaha is too attacking to play the way Pearce wants GB to play. Not saying I agree with the playing style, but I can see why Pearce thought Rose was the better choice for the role.

As for the referee tonight - was he Scottish?!
