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?
