Just a few of my thoughts that popped into my head during England v Egypt. Sort of in a chronological order, although no promises. Also, for once I did not listen to match commentary, did not twitter or text, nor did I follow any live blog. Anything in here came out of my own twisted brain.
Capello clearly does not follow @7500_Kirsten because Leighton Baines got the start over Stephen Warnock.
I wonder if John Terry thought this new hairstyle would help him overcome his image problems? Because really dude, a faux hawk is not doing you any favors
Am I the only girl in this pub who is even glancing at the TV screen? Certainly the only one with a beer in her hand.
Warnock! Warnock! Warnock!
Seriously, where was Baines? Egypt ran right through.
That goal by Crouch had to be an accident.
Leighton Baines sounds like a soap opera character.
Clearly Stephen Warnock is a much more upstanding name as well as better defender.
Do any Villa fans miss Gareth Barry?
Villa have six Englishmen in their regular starting XI. They have four in the callup for England. So where the hell are they?
Oh look it's Milner on the touchline.
Oh look it's Milner on the pitch.
Oh look it's Milner everywhere.
Oh look it's Milner almost scoring.
Oh look it's Milner playing leftback because where is Leighton Baines?
A I utterly biased or does Baines look as though he barely graduated from youth soccer?
Carrick's still playing?
A captain armband certainly does not look sexy on Barry.
Would it really have been so difficult to give Warnock a few minutes on the pitch?
For the first half of the game, England looked like a team confused about one another--unsure who to trust, unsure who would be where in order to time a well-placed shot. In the second half they seemed to get into the groove a bit and find confidence in their passing.
But those are just initial thoughts from someone who's never actually watched the England squad play a full friendly...now if you'll excuse me, I need to go read some post-match reviews to determine if I am the only one who noticed that Baines couldn't seem to complete a forward pass.
