Without Adam, Luke (and yes,even Sir Rickie) in the starting line, I will endeavour to maintain a semblance of interest in the match.

Southampton boy says...

Can't see this being a draw but the big question is can we win we could have been 3 1 up they have a stand in keeper we should be able to beat him.

Roo is not helping on the wing great ball in for goal but there lad is getting pass to many times

Good game open and fast flowing

You can just hear Gerrard saying to Adam " I'm sorry mate but as you ain't signed for me I can't start with you" it's Scousepool lads only.

In the second half we have had most of the possession, but little creativity. We need accurate shooting practice. Made it too easy for Italy to coast.

It was like Roy was defending Rooney before anyone was having a go.
He was terrible again, Roy has to have the balls to say enough is enough.

In the Euros of 2012 Pirlo dictated the game, were no lessons learned?
He did it again last night... made us look bad and Italy are pretty poor right now.

Just heard someone say last nights defeat was ok because we played well?
I thought we were awful and just fell into Italy's trap.
What was the point of playing 4 forwards when none of them put any pressure on Italy's defenders when they were in possession, we tried to play a game that was alien to our players.. Not very clever Roy.
