Hmm... let's see...
Let's start out with group E.. as that is the group on the table right now.

Group E____Pld_____Pts
Croatia_____5______13
Russia_____5_______11
England____5_______8
Israel______5_______8
Macedonia__6_______7
Estonia_____4_______0
Andorra_____4______0

Croatia has allways been a thorn in the side for Sweden in the qualifications over the years.
A good team = Will make the EC.

Assuming Croatia will take 3 points against Russia, England will make the EC.

England will probably make it, barely. Though the manager will probably get axed nevertheless. Mclaren is as big an idiot as Eriksson was.

What's interesting is that both Spain and Italy are 4th in their groups and look less likely to qualify than England but Scotland and Northern Ireland are likely to make it.

Group F ____Pld__Pts
Sweden______4___12
N. Ireland____5___10
Denmark_____4___7
Spain________4___6
Latvia________3___3
Iceland ______4___3
Liechtenstein__4__0

Northern Ireland face Sweden tomorrow.
If we assume, as I do, that Sweden will snatch 3 points tomorrow, Sweden is through to the EC.
The runner up will eather be Denmark, if they manage to take 3 points from Sweden in the coming match, or Spain. That's how I see it.

I don't see why eather one of them would qualify as an idiot?
I do, however, see why you would qualify as one.
How many are there like you? Seems to be an abundance of manager kritiks who don't know the first thing about football.

We know enough to know that most certainly Sweden will NOT win Euro 2008. You can put that in your pipe and smoke it.

I never claimed they will. Why the stab in the dark?

Well for starters, there's everyone in England....

McLaren and Eriksson aren't (and weren't) good managers because they are risk-averse. They don't try anything different or new, they just play the same players with the same tactics all the time and hope that it works out.

What qualifies you to assume that Xerxes has no knowledge of Football? I know for a fact that he most certainly DOES have considerable knowledge of football.

I C.. and if they hadn't and the result would have been the same or wors? Then What? There would have been an even worse public outcry! That's what!
If thr best players they got can't do the job.. what makes you think it's the coatching that put England where they are today?

Well like the thread starter said, the senior players have no passion, no drive (except for Rooney and Gerrard). A coach can deal with that by putting younger guys on the field who want a national team place.

Sorry if you don't like my prediction....that's all that was meant to be. What is lame though is stating someone is an idiot because you simply take a stab in the dark about their knowledge about football. You could have simply stated you thought his comment was wrong rather than insinuate he was an idiot.

Like for example...?
I'll be fair...
Like it is in England, self proclaimed experts who want the managers blood as soon as things don't go their way, there won't be any daring ventures by the manager. The media there is mercyless and, in my opinion, destructive to both the team and it's managers.

I laughed my ass of when I first got the news that Luiz Felipe Scolari sayed no to managing england after he got his first taste of the english media. ROTFL

I merely stated that I see why anyone would call him such after a post such as his. He proclaimed that Mclaren and Eriksson are idiots which I found idiotic.
