Leaves me shocked they took Milner off with his battling displays, Cole is still quality lb even though the missed pen

Simple as England were never going to get far with so many liverpool players in the squad

This squad needs re-vamping for the world cup. "WOY" needs to let the likes of Gerrard and Lampard know that they won't be in the WC Plans,not even the qualifiers. I don't see the point in playing older players for the qualifiers if they are going to be 35- 36-37 come Brazil. Also he needs to look away from the so called big clubs, Your Rooneys,A.Young's,Carrolls etc can perform in the PL but are crap on the international stage.....

Come on "Woy" show us your different to any of the last managers and drop some of these so called superstars give the younger players some credit and give them a shot.

There's no point on winning every header if when you win them you either give the ball away to the opposition or the header drops to an opposition player straight away.

And Roy had a month to put together a team of apparently world class players!!! If you ask me a month is more than enough time to sort out a squad of quality English players problem is he didn't he took the likes of downing who has had no goals and no assists all season.

Carroll won most of the possessions for England in the air, what he did after winning them is a different story. I don't think Roy had enough time to put together a winning side which is why he went with many Liverpool players who he is familiar with and many of the old guard. My only critique of his is that I think he could've utilized Ashley Young and Walcott's speed much more on counter attacks.

If Carroll wins a header but then gives it away or heads it to another player that's. It really winning possession is it. To have possession means you have the ball not that you've just touched the ball.

That is correct except that on multiple occasions Carroll either headed it to Rooney or chested the ball down to himself to gain possesion. He won England a good number touches in the italians half...but I don't think you can expect for him to do much on his own or with Rooney against 4 or 5 Italian defenders. It's sad because, if Roy had Walcott and Young both going up on attack and crossing it rather than staying conservative I don't think Italy could match Carroll in the air, you saw him setup the Rooney bicycle kick from a header.

Roy has done what capello didn't, we walked away from a tournament with a little pride intact. Prior to the start of the euros most people thought we would be lucky to get out of the group. Roy played to our strengths by trying to counter attack, it's hardly his fault if our attacking players seemed incapable of making a simple 5 yard pass on far to many occasions. Our inability to keep possession in the opponents half was pitiful.

The back 5, gerrard and parker performed well. Milner young welbeck and rooney offered very little going forward.

we have to go back to basics and coach the kids in a different way, something i believe southgate and brooking have been demanding for a while and is now been but into place. Hopefully this will pay off and in 10 years we might have a genuine chance of matching the best.

This will never happen as the FA are only interested in old school English football, hoof it and hope. This is why they hired Roy they've got the old style of football coupled with a yes man.

Bang on.......I have never seen a so called "world class team" play so deep, that's how you expect the Faroe Isles to play. We were so deep we couldn't even hit them on the break. Pirlo ( a 33 year old midfielder) ran the show, He made Gerrard ,Parker et al look like sunday league players. I bet any money the krauts won't let him run the midfield. "Woy" was appointed for that very reason Skyba said....he's a yes man.
