I Think England had decided to settle for 0-0 by half-time. Lampard and Gerrard had a good game and with 2 home games left I think it will be 6 points in the bag, hopefully without the injury crisis!.
How did those two have good games?
I'd like to read that explanation!
Lampard is an attacking mid fielder he created nothing from what i saw!
THis was Ukraine with not one player i knew on that team ,yet he did not dominate that mid field.
Gerrard usually puts in a good shift and who's energy is infectious on the pitch was GOOD?
Good game compared to what? compared to what he was capable of at his best?
I don;t tink you really believe that!
BOth players were abysmal given the opponent quite frankly!
Walcott was not great but he;'s only as good as what he is fed. But giving him a 5 and Lampard a 6 is nothing short of ludicrous.
Walcott's energy and desire was double of that of those two, as ineffective as he was ,he was no more ineffective as Gerrard or Lampard . So i give him i higher rating based on his ability to give Ukraine some trouble at least.
HOw Hodgson can continue to sit there ,watch both players shank passes 15 yards out of play under absolutely no pressure ,and believe they are still what they used to be is joke! Especially Gerrard who was always an impeccable player.
If he continues to play those pair England get every loss they deserve,but please don;t tell me we don't have the players good enough to fill their spots.
