England.. player problem or manager problem

England managed to beat Andorra by just two goals last evening in a match many predicted would end in 5, 6, 7 -0. Managers have come and gone over the years for England with no success in achieving what many expect a nation of this statue should achieve. Football analyst and fans sometimes blame the players, others blame the managers...who is really to blame.

I feel that the managers are not really to blame and that the main blame should be on the fact that England don't produce enough flair player who have the skill and "ginger" to have those "moment of brilliance" normally since by the Argentinean , Brazilian, French and other teams. The only such flair player in the squad is Joe Cole, who incidentally got both goals in the match. Gerrard and Lampard are both great players but don't have the skill and charisma to move the team forward as they do with their respective clubs.

That is my reason, i would like to hear what you readers think, the players or the manager who is to blame?

The last day of transfer

Berbatov and Robinho have been the subject of talk for most of the summer with both saying they want out of their respective clubs. Real madrid refusing to let Robihno leave and Tottenham Hotspur willing to only sell at the right price it seems that both players might remain at the club.

But now news is out that Manchester city have made a bid over 30 million pounds and that Berbatov is holding talks with Man city and also long time seekers Man utd. Arsenal yet to make any move it seems that no new player will be added which would worry many fans. Last season Arsenal bought Diarra on the last day of the transfer window so we might yet see a last minute purchase. Inter Milan have already signed Quaresma for an undisclosed fee.

The last day of transfers always promise to be exciting and i am sure this one won't disappoint.
