Harry Redknapp, England manager? (Awful writing)

England World Cup Blog at related • 0 views

Whenever a Harry Redknapp team does well I start to worry. I start to worry that the team is about to go out of business or that someone might declare him the best manager they have ever worked under, but most of all I worry that it is only a matter of time before he starts being linked with the non-vacant role of England manager.

Is It Too Early to Get Excited About Sturridge?

England World Cup Blog at related • 0 views

As some of you may know, I am a Bolton fan. At the very end of the transfer window, we were lucky enough to pick up a certain Daniel Sturridge on loan. In the three games since joining Bolton, he's shown why Coyle was interested, scoring in each of them. He's now scored as many for Bolton as he had in his previous 31 Premiership appearances.

Denmark 1 – 2 England (Via Hamlet)

Break my heart foir I must hold my tongue! Shakespeare was English, but his greatest story was of a Danish King. So when England take on Denmark it seems reasonable to filter the game report through (mis)quotes from that play. Right?

Frailty Thy Name is England!

England were defensively really poor, especially in the first half.

If you want a great night, don't join us (myself Ethan and myself Ethan) here at 7:30pm GMT, but if you want a rubbish night, do. Or something like that.

Denmark v. England

England World Cup Blog at related • 0 views

This fixture will inevitably bring back memories of the last time we paid a visit to Denmark. England swaggered into that match and came out of it humiliated. This time, we have an England team with considerably less confidence. To contrast our recent poor form, Denmark has been doing well having, a record of W-2 D-2 L-1 since going out of the World Cup before the Round of 16 last summer.

Russia and Qatar (!) To host World Cups

Football, is not coming home. The 2018 World Cup will be held in Russia.

We haven't covered the bidding process that much here at WCB, mainly because its been a bit boring, despite the English Press best efforts. I'm more dissapointed than I thought I'd be to be honest, but on the other hand, I do think Russia will be put on a good show and good for them.

So, you were probably expecting a post about England's flickering attempts to hold the 2018 World Cup? Hard Luck. That's just some people making some speeches at the moment. So instead I give you, something suggested to me on Twitter earlier.

You'll never look at him the same again.

So, England vs France in a meaningless friendly. Where else would you want to spend it but with me, and possibly Ethan and Matilda, if they can (they probably can't). So please don't leave me here all alone.

Previewing England Vs France, and Where We Stand

England World Cup Blog at related • 0 views

So England take on France tomorrow in a friendly. In times gone by this would be a Big Test to prove ourselves against a quality opposition to keep our ambitions in check while we coasted in qualifying.

But it isn't like that now. For a start, France have had a bad a time of it of late as we have.

England Squad Announced for the Friendly

England World Cup Blog at related • 0 views

A quick warning before I really get into this post. I am a Bolton fan, and I am inevitably biased by this. I do try to remain clear-headed when writing for England WCB, but I know that my loyalties will come out. Apologies ahead of time.
Before we start, have a look at the final squad:
Keepers: Foster (Birmingham), Hart (Man City), Green (West Ham)
Defenders: Cahill (Bolton), Gibbs (Arsenal), Jagielka (Everton), Lescott (Man City), Richards (Man City), Ferdinand (Man Utd), Smalling (Man Utd), Warnock (Aston Villa)
Midfielders: Walcott (Arsenal), Wilshere (Arsenal), A Young (Aston Villa), Gerrard (Liverpool), Barry (Man City), Johnson (Man City), Milner (Man City), Henderson (Sunderland)
Strikers: Bothroyd (Cardiff), Carroll (Newcastle), Crouch (Tottenham), C Cole (West Ham)

This is slightly different than the original squad released, however Gary Cahill, Stephen Warnock, and Carlton Cole have been called up for the injured John Terry, Ashley Cole, and Gabby Agbonlahor.

Russia gets Nasty in World Cup Bid

England World Cup Blog at related • 4 views

The gloves are well and truly off in the run up to Dec 2, when we'll find out whether its England, Russian or Spain/Portugal that hosts the 2018 World Cup. While the latter bid is mired in some controversy about vote fixing, England and Russia are the leading bids, and the Russians are playing a high risk strategy to get the bid.

A couple of days ago, England took on Montenegro, and drew 0-0. I'm pleased we didn't liveblog it, because it was boring. England probably should have won, and were denied a stonewall penalty, but there was a distinct lack of chances created by England, and we sort of settled for 0-0 late on.

Of course this has caused a minor outrage in the press who think England let us down again etc etc.

Injury List Lengthens Ahead of Montenegro

England World Cup Blog at related • 1 view

Neither Darren Bent or John Terry will play against Montenegro for England tomorrow, both have joined the England Injury List Peter Crouch will start up front with Wayne Rooney with Lescott and Rio Ferdinand (Who has regained the captaincy on his return to England duty from Steven Gerrard) in the centre of defence.

Dear Trevor Brooking, Shut Up.

So, West Ham and England legened and all round FA go to boy Trevor Brooking has added to his previous comments that the next manager of England should be English by putting Steve McClaren's name in the frame. I'm sure you don't need reminding what happened last time Steve was England boss.

Brooking reasons that Steve has done well post Brollygate leading FC Twente to the title in Holland, and is now manager of erm, under performing Wolfsbuirg.

Kevin Davies makes England Squad ahead of Carroll

England World Cup Blog at related • 1 view

Despite Andy Carroll being widely tipped for a call up to the full England Squad after being left out of the U21s, it is in fact, Kevin Davies who has got his first proper England call up, something that will no doubt please one of my co-bloggers.

Davies had presumably given up on the idea of actually playing for England, but with Heskey retired from England duty, and injuries to Zamora and Agbonlahor, Davies joins Rooney, Crouch and Bent in the England squad to face Montenegro this week.
