Death to the 4-5-1

Posted on by Christopher Harris
Arsenal

Very early in the 2005/2006 Premiership season, all of the talk was about the 4-5-1 formation and how Bolton, especially, was being effective yet boring after Allardyce used the formation to grind out results. What we’ve seen in the 2006 … Continue reading

The World Cup Gets Turned Upside Down

Posted on by Christopher Harris
Oscar of Brazil

  So, England and Brazil’s World Cup dreams are over. In both matches, the favorites were outplayed, conservative and uninspiring. England’s demise falls to Wayne Rooney. The idiotic kick by Rooney was the turning point in the match. From that … Continue reading

England is just hours away from their crucial match against Portugal. On paper, this is one of the finest England teams to grace the international stage in years. But can they play as a cohesive unit and defeat Scolari’s men? … Continue reading

Imagine what if Scolari had accepted the England job before the World Cup? If you remember, the FA wanted Scolari to agree to the job before the tournament began and to start his new position immediately after the World Cup. … Continue reading

After the final second-round matches conclude Tuesday, only eight World Cup matches remain (and that includes the meaningless third-place match). Could we be destined for the following semi-final matches? Italy against Germany, and England versus Brazil? Or do you fancy … Continue reading

It wasn’t pretty. They didn’t play the best, but the win was what was important. How many times have we heard that this World Cup about England? But it’s true. The gutsy performance was what was needed to ease the … Continue reading

Posted on by Christopher Harris
sven-goran-eriksson

I have severe concerns about Sven’s selection for tomorrow’s match against Ecuador. He’s essentially fielding a 4-5-1, although actually it’s a 4-1-4-1 with Rooney up front, and a midfield comprising Beckham, Gerrard, Lampard and Cole. The back four will be … Continue reading

England’s first-half performance against Sweden yesterday was their best 45 minutes for as long as I can remember. But, as so often happens in football, it was a game of two halves. During the second half, England’s defense fell apart … Continue reading
