    Four wins on the bounce for Brentford, I can't quite think of the last time that happened.

    That is hilarious. I was right where Suarez was (In the East Stand) and I noticed that too.

    I'm guessing the reason his team-mates didn't run over is because they were too busy staring at Howard Webb thinking 'he's not seriously going to give that...is he?'

    Suarez was entitled to push ramirez because ramirez was holding his shirt

    His teammates looked at the linesman waiting for him to raise his flag for offside like against everton

    You can thank me for fixing your post lee

    Wilfried Zaha called up for England to play against Sweden. This is mostly because of Rooney and Walcott pulling out, leaving England with Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck, which is a most unexpected forward line. It's going to be a hilarious match.

    where the fuck is defoe??

    strong selection skills from hodgson. really annoyed me that he picked sterling who shouldn't be playing picked for the U21s, nevermind the senior squad.

    tbh I've always liked that about Suarez, the fact that he's highly competitive and will do whatever it takes to win (if you look through old threads you'll see me praising him for that infamous handball because he selflessly sacrificed himself for his team and country) but don't try and defend that goal lol, it was laughably unfair.

    in other news, Hodgson selects undeserving Liverpool players. I'm in shock.

    @ Latios, I was more annoyed at how vocal you were about their comparatively fair goal but then went mysteriously silent when Suarez scored a far worse one...too much bias itt

    there's a difference between supporting your team and doing a phalanx. just because you happen to support a team doesn't mean you have to be totally one-sided and blinkered and pretend they dont do anything wrong :s

    dagger was injured during the whole 90 minutes. He wasn't scheduled to play but when skrtel got ill, we had to throw him in there. it explains why he didn't look like his usual self

    England are winning 1-2, Gerrard is substituted, BAM! 4-2 Sweden. Coincidence? Definitely not. Just shows how vital Stevie's become for England in that "quarterback" role. Shame he's struggling to adjust to Brendan's style of football at Liverpool.
    Also shows how much influence he has on the team as a captain. He might not be the most vocal captain but he leads by example.

    A few things to be noted.

    Players that are not ready yet for the step-up (though it is because of the tug of war between international sides):
    -Zaha
    -Sterling
    -Jenkinson

    Players that are not good enough for England:
    -Huddlestone
    -Osman
    -Shawcross

    Joe Hart seriously needs to look at himself and his performances this season. He was at fault for Ibra's last 3 goals. Probably needs more competition at club level and international level.

    Blaming the sub of Steven Gerrard for the loss?
    we removed creativity for crap (young for sturridge) and Joe Hart decided to forget how to save the ball for the 3rd. or erm, do anything correctly for the 4th.
    not the substitution of Gerrard that was the problem, was keeper.
    and Zaha did fine, as did Osman
