neekoy Posted March 27, 2007 Share Posted March 27, 2007 Steve McLaren is a poor manager at best, but I do feel sympathy with him and believe he is only partly to blame. 90% of the England teams problems lie solely with the players. the reason they never replicate their club performances and play like imposters, with no hunger, pride or inventiveness has nothing to do with the manager. there are obvious divisions in the England squad. their body language (slumped shoulders) speaks volumes and the players don't communicate on the pitch. there are too many fevered egos! people say, ''the England team needs a good motivator.'' rubbish! if you need motivation to represent your country, there's something wrong with you! Add to it at their clubs they have players surrounding them with the right skills to help them succeed. I went throught the English team and there doesn't appear to be one player who is the best player in the club side he is playing for at the moment. When you think of past players you has Shearer, Linekar, Waddle, Gazza, Beardsley, Ince IMO all at the time the best player in their club sides The only one argueably is probably Carragher and he is getting completely shafted Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
