View Full Version : Steve McCLaren is a complete idiot - not that you need me to tell you

Being Irish, I had to laugh at the Press Conference announcing the squad for England's games against Israel and Russia when McClaren said -

"We normally win the big games and we have to do it again."

So, does losing to a second or even third string German team at Wembley, not consitute a Big Game for England these days? Oh, let me guess, that was only a Friendly.

Quarter-Final games in tournaments obvioulsy don't count in McClaren's book.

The ONLY BIG team that England have beaten since they beat the worst German team ever 5-1 in 2001, was Argentina. Guess what, that was also a friendly.

It's a sorry state of affairs when a game against Israel is considered a Big Game.

Mind you, I suppose if you look at it another way, in the one Final of a major tournament that England have reached, they do have a 100% record.

All qualification games are big games,3 points is 3 points in my book,it doesn't matter who we play.McClaren should step down if England don't get to the finals.

He should, but he won't.
He'll wait to get sacked, and pick up substantial compensation.

Joleon Lescott has been called into the squad. He had an excellent first season with the Blues and now has even started scoring goals as well!

What now really f**ks me off, is that Maclaren is going to play Gerard even if he need's an injection, i would pull him out the squad and never allow another one of the players from my team to go again until the farce that is the Ingerlund team get a decent manager!

Judge
05-09-2007, 11:46
Yep, looks like Gerrard will play ,he better not get injured.I would rest Gerrard for the first game and play him in the Russia game,this game we will need him more.
Against Israel we should be able to beat them with our 2nd team,but after all this is England we are talking about.

kste22
05-09-2007, 11:49
I wouldnt play him at all! Id withdraw all LFC people from current and future Ingerland squads forever! if Gerard loves LFC so much they he has to tell Maclaren im not fit! Anyway who cares if Ingerland dont beat Israel or Russia i dont!!!!!!! Ingerland is a waste of time for pissed up knobheads and cockneys

Judge
05-09-2007, 11:53
There's no question how much Gerrard loves LFC,but he also loves his country,can't blame him for wanting to help.I'm sure Gerrard would love to win something for England,at the end of the day,he's just one of the real decent players we have for England, he is much needed,but if it puts his season on the line,i don't want him to play.
Lampard is out, so Gerrard will shine and win the game for England,that's if he's fit enough.

Fair enough!

However, I am sure some players love the England team, including your beloved LFC players!

If they want to play for their country what is the problem?!!. They are living their dream.

Not moaning like you!!

Im sure some of them do, but that doesn't mean I have too. All I see, is England as a chance for these players to become injured.

Anyway who is moaning? I am just saying my opinion.

When the game is on most England fans get behind the team, but if the team plays sh*t, they should be slagged off and the manager as well.We shouldn't be a 2nd rate team with the players we have,we should be up there with the best teams in the world,it's the managers job to see to this.We all know what the players can do for their clubs,it takes a good manager to do the same for England.If McClaren gets them preforming well,then he gets my backing,but he seems to have no idea.

I sure most fans do get behind the team, and if they pay money to watch, then they are entitled to their views.

It's just a small minority of fans who do the booing,but others copy them.Many fans( like myself) expect alot from England and we should get alot back..

I just wondered what England would achieve in the football world, if every fan got behind them! If they took the long term view, not moan from game to game. Including the wonderful english newspapers!

They do have some great players!
More than we have in the Scottish team!

And yes I am one of those scots who can't support England!

Take a chill pill guys(red ones are the best).:farout::farout::farout:

Scottish01, when England play in the World Cup or the Euro Nations Cup, we are always the best supported team.

England fans moan because we haven't won anything in 40 odd years.

I mentioned above that the 3 lions will roar,for me the 3 lions we be,Terry,holding the defence ,Super Gerrard bossing the centre and Owen showing his great instinct in front of goal.These 3 lions will hold the pack together.

The next few England games are going to be an absolute nightmare. You can feel it comming on.

I'll be watching the game but wont be expecting too much.

Because a few players are out ,the new ones will be able to shine,this might make things alright on the night.


It's time to stand up and be counted for many England players,my faith in the team is starting to get better(only because the game is close).

Shaun Wright-Phillips should be given a chance,if he plays well and puts in a good ball for the likes of Owen, we should be ok.

Anyway thanks for the LFC article it was a good read!

Again i will state that i support LFC always have and will and dont comment on Ingerland, if i did then fine, all i ask is LFC player dont play or get injured and im happy regardless of Ingerlands results

Beware the Scots! Although guy in work is scottish and we get on fine!

What this whole post has made me confused about is, Why because im English(scouse) i have to support or even be interested in the national team?

LFC have given me the happiest memories of my entire football career, England has given me none! If Gerard gets further injured playing for england this week, LFC could suffer. This therefore would spoil my enjoyment watching LFC and what would i gain from supporting INGERLAND nothing! The national team is pointless.

I didn't say you had to support England!

You said the national team was pointless. However to players like Gerrard it isn't. Maybe the national team inspired him to become a world class player.

If Gerrard scored the winning goal that won England the world cup would you care!?

Hope they never do though! Us scots are still hearing about 1966!!:mad:

F*ck me have I walked into an episode of Harry Enfield's 'Scousers' by any chance.

The thread starts of as a reasonable debate - ok I did point out that Stephen Gerrard along with every other England player will never win anything for England. Harsh, perhaps, but true nevertheless.

Then along comes some crazy Scots person who calls the England fans ‘Pathetic’.

He then proceeds to tell someone else that they have terrible Grammar.

That person responds by calling him a c*nt.

Aforementioned Scots person threatens to kick C-Word Man’s ass (I love when people do that on an internet forum)

Judge then waffles on about the Three Lions.

It’s then discovered that the crazy Scots person supports Liverpool.

Scots person / ‘C-Word Man’ and Judge kiss and make up and go after the common enemy. That's me by the way but steadfastly, I refuse to rise to the bait.

Hilarious stuff chaps. We should recall this thread -

That was the part I enjoyed the most.

It was a bit OTT but there was no beating about the bush.

The bit I liked was after the Scots lad had thrown his caber out of his pram / they'd all calmed down (pun obviously intended) and the Scouse-Love-Triangle was formed, that the Scots lad asked kste if he was getting the beers in. No mention of any reciprocation whatsoever. Who says people don't conform to stereotypes.
