Bales 1 - 2 Woy's Boys

Thursday, 16 June 2016

Absolute scenes in Lens as England secured their first win of Euro 2016 against Wales and to put their fate in their own hands before their game against Slovakia on Monday. Few would argue that the victory was undeserved, although victory seemed a long way away after Gareth Bale slammed home an early free kick from distance. Hodgson’s decision to introduce Vardy and Sturridge after the break paid dividends though, as Vardy’s close range finish was followed by a late late winner from Liverpool’s main marksman.

Before the game even started their were slightly unusual scenes in the tunnel as a rather frenetic Joe Hart screamed “LETS MOVE THE FUCKING BALL”. Where he wanted the ball moved from and to was a bit of a mystery but I am sure it made sense in his mind,though in my personal opinion it would further accentuate my view that with his personality I think he’s a bit of a dick. Does he ever have anything sensible to say. Perhaps he should keep his mouth shut and focus on his goalkeeping in future.

The game followed a pattern as many had expected with England dominant with the ball although they had the cutting edge of a butter knife with Mr Sterling the main culprit with a poor miss from close range.  His general performance was pretty atrocious let’s face it, and he was looking more like a £5 signing than £50m.

However, things took a turn for the worst for England when a Rooney foul presented Bale with a chance from distance at a free kick. I think I am not alone in thinking that he wouldn’t score from that far out but he managed to make Joe Hart blush who could only palm his dipping effort into the back of the net.

After this, England huffed and puffed without really creating much at all. In fact the main entertainment at this point was the horseplay between Messrs Savage and Keown in the commentary box. 

“That was a clear foul.” Says Savage
“That was a blatant dive” says Keown

However Keown then surpassed his own ridiculousness by stating that Bale was the best player in Europe. However, when Guy Mowbray correctly pointed out a certain Ronaldo at Real Madrid, Keown said “well I think he will surpass him eventually”. So that means he isn’t the best player then Martin…..

At half time, the wolves were at Woy’s door and he reacted by bringing on Vardy and Sturridge to help pep up England’s sorry attack with the lacklustre Kane and Sterling the two players to be withdrawn

Vardy brought England level with a classic predator’s finish before Wales repelled wave after wave of England attack. It has to be said that Hennessey did not really have to do much work due to the brilliant defence in front of him but Welsh hearts were broken when Sturridge scooped home from close range to send England fans into bedlam.

So what have we learnt from today’s game. The main points I suppose are that Sterling and Kane have been monumentally shit in both games, Woy actually has a pair of cojones and Vardy and Sturridge probably should be starting against Slovakia. As for Wales, although they defended valiantly for large spells, they were generally pretty poor today though in all likelihood they will still qualify.

On a personal note the result means it’s more likely that I will NOT be seeing England for the games I have tickets for.  On the plus side this means that I am less likely to be tear gassed or have my head smashed in by some Russian ultras which can only be a good thing!

Finally, I am sure many of you were watching the game at work/had skived off to watch the game. Personally being unemployed and slightly hungover I was couch bound but this little clip shows me everything that I missed out on
