yes....like you i am baffled by their play in the euro.......not much imagination this time out.........i hate to blame the queen since she seems to be more of a rugby/cricket fan than a football fan.<quoted text>
It's being influenced yes but when is the last time you saw a Roy Hodgson club side play out and out long ball? He's never coached it and the players individually for their clubs all play a fast paced attacking style WITH possession...Maybe the Queen likes the long ball and tells them what to do? I don't know. It's truly baffling.
Sorry you have to work but it's halftime and you're not missing much in the game. No real chances from either side to speak of but Portugal isn't backing down which is nice.
i didn't get to watch the spain portugal match but i heard it wasn't mush to look at....i'm hoping that spain will play that way against italy in the finals.....cough...cough...... ..yes....perhaps i am counting my chickens before they hatch.......not that i am biased or anything ;)
