  1. Christopher Harris says:

    Romelu Lukaku is simply unstoppable. I can’t stop raving about how brilliant he is. Two goals for Belgium and it’s still the first half.

  2. Smokey Bacon says:

    Liking Woy’s positive approach. Very attacking line up. Just hope we don’t get overrun in midfield. Gerrard needs to sit in front of that back four and let the others go forward. Hope we see Barkley and Lambert in the second half.

    Come on England! Don’t let me down.

  3. Gary says:

    With a depleted Montenegro side Roy can afford to be more positive than usual. If England cannot win this game against this weakened Montenegro side then they don’t deserve to go to the World Cup.

  4. Christopher Harris says:

    Very distracting crawl across the bottom of FOX Sports 1 broadcast. Urgh!

    • PharmaDoc says:

      At least the coverage started on time where you live. Fox Sports 1 on Xfinity in Seattle had the start time for the game listed at 12:30 pm pacific time (3:30 pm eastern). Since I can’t STAND any of their studio people, I was watching the Germany-Ireland game until it was time to switch over.

      12:30 comes, I change the channel to FS1 and the game is already at the 29 minute mark. I don’t know who to yell at, FS1 or Xfinity, so I’m yelling at both. :(

      • rej4sl says:

        Xfinity guide had the wrong time here in the Twin Cities too. It said 2.30. Saw a friend mention it on facebook and luckily only missed the first 3 or 4 minutes.

  5. Christopher Harris says:

    Montenegro team playing in colors of Melchester Rovers. Who will be their Roy of the Rovers tonight?

  6. Christopher Harris says:

    Not impressed by England so far. They’re too predictable on the attack, and Montenegro is doing a fine job at defending in numbers and breaking on the counter.

    • Smokey Bacon says:

      What game were you watching? Best England performance for a long time. Good balance, attacking threat on the flanks and pace and trickery up front. Yes they had to break Montenegro down but they absolutely dominated the game from start to finish. And did I mention Townsend? What a debut! Excellent stuff from a guy looking like he ,learned something watching Bale at Spurs.

      Congrats to the players and Hodgson for an excellent performance. We’re not there yet but li liked what I saw tonight. Roll on Poland on Tuesday.

  7. Christopher Harris says:

    I don’t envy the job that Ian Joy and Ross Dyer have right now on beIN SPORT trying to commentate on the matches, and having to deal with technical issues, goals in other games and dealing with the spontaneity of everything.

  8. Christopher Harris says:

    Anyone else want to bet that the USA vs Jamaica game ends 0-0?

    • Christopher Harris says:

      Scratch that. Jamaica is falling to pieces.

      Great reaction by the crowd on both goals. It’s a party atmosphere in KC.

  9. Rob says:

    Anyone in the business who can tell ESPN that no one likes to hear Lalas?

  10. Adam Heap says:

    Aussie coach Holger Osieck got the sack after we lost 6-0 to France in that friendly. Interesting to see who they bring in for the World Cup.
