Sad but true, that a young defender still learning his trade is our best defender.
How Gerrard still gets ahead of Lampard in the team is beyond me. Gave the ball away a few times and just lacked any genuine pace. He can pull of the odd set peice and still has good technique but he needs to adapt his game more. I really hate the comparisons to Scholes because Scholes would ping 50 yard balls for fun, Gerrard does that every now and again. That is the gulf in class.
Walcott was a mixed bag. Sure, he got the goal, but the guy just doesn't want to run at people. He got better after his goal but he still frustrates me. Although Zaha's crossing wasn't much better, he seemed to have the run of the defender more so than Walcott.
Gif Welbeck's layoff for that Rooney shot anyone? Sexy play from Danny there!
From a Scotland perspective, I was relatively pleased with the performance tonight. Started off the better team, played some decent stuff but tailed off and the legs went as the game went on. We're on the right course under Strachan atm, but still a lot of work still to do.
