If he was, he wouldn't be still at Spurs.

In reply to:

Bet you are an Arsenal fan..........



I am, but unlike some I could mention, I don't wear my club allegiance as blinkers. I've already said I wouldn't pick Campbell in the England team, and I'm not going around claiming Senderos is the best central defender in the world (a claim only marginally more ridiculous that Robinson as the world's best keeper).

Well, last night's Holland-Argentina match was a snoozefest as I feared it would be in the absence of real competitive edge. Still, I got the strong suspicion we could very well be watching the dress rehearsal for the final (a feeling I didn't get from England-Sweden for some reason).

I'd rather have seen the Ivory Coast-Sebia match live. When will TV companies start to realise that games between two teams already eliminated are usually better spectacles than ones between two teams already through?

I feel sorry for the Ivory Coast. I think they'd have qualified from any other group. In fact, I think there are a few groups the Serbs would have qualified from (they might even have won the easiest group, England's).

Slan libh,

Dara

Losing Perspectives new [re: candidate0]  

In reply to:

Robinson is not poor, he is possibly the best keeper in the world at the moment


Good Lord. Looks like another example of an English person which is unable to look beyond their own nationality let alone their own borders and prefers to believe the national hype.

What I have seen from Robinson so far would hardly get him a job with any Bundesliga side, even the lower ones.

I am not a total expert on worldwide goalkeeping but judging from what I have seen in recent years in the Champions League and other international games you will hardly find a goalkeeper that goes past Italy's Buffon. And few come close. Certainly not Robinson.

And I want to believe that a light's shining through somehow

Petr Cech;
Gianluigi Buffon;
Shay Given;
Iker Casillas;
Edwin van der Sar;
Andreas Isaksson.

Just a handful of the 'keepers far more talented than Paul Robinson. And his positioning from the set pieces was poor. And he doesn't have the authority to control his area or sort his defence properly. He's been flat-out poor in this competition thus far.

Easiest?

Before the competition started, Sweden were ranked higher than Poland, Paraguay higher than Ecuador & Costa Rica were ranked just a few places higher than Trinidad.

Groups D, G & H were, on paper, also easier than Englands.

Congratulations to Ghana for being the sole Afican nation from five, for making the Second Round.

They say the gulf betwixt the Europeans/Sth Americans & the Africans is getting smaller and I believe it is - but they aren't 'alf taking their time.

Ultimately I think that having five qualifiers from Africa and certainly having four nations from Asia is way too much.

COME ON ENGLAND!

3 games new [re: Arlequino]  

Paul Robinson was the reason that Spurs went from Mid table side to 5th in League last season on his own.

Also dont forget his age and the future he is going to have.
He is more than likely going to break Peter Shiltons GK caps record for England.

Buffon whilst a world class keeper doesnt have to deal with the same problems as Robinson in terms of defence shortcomings.

Count how many shots the opposition has at goal against Italy on one hand.

Robinson is ultra sound and i would not swap him in Englands goal for any other Keeper nor at Spurs.

If Paul is as you say poor what do you recommend, Calamity James.

I think the only players who deserve to keep their places on current form are Robinson, Ferdinand, Terry, Gerrard and Rooney.

Re: 3 games new [re: candidate0]  

Do you remember when he played many years ago in the champions-league as a 18-year old lad, for leeds united? I knew back then, that we will be our no.1 goalie sometime in the near future...

It's the English way. Flip from one extreme to the other. Lose to Northern Ireland? This must be the worst English team ever! Then beat Argentina in a friendly? Way hay hay, we're gonna win the World Cup with Pelecott!


You've made your point now, you dont like walcott...

[lquote]If so Eriksson must be a total dickhead as it was long clear that Rooney was doubtful, Owen not fully fit and out of form and Walcott an inexperienced youngster[/quote]
That's what i've been trying to tell ya...

Was anybody left home who could have helped?


Here's a small short-list of possible wc-candidates:
Robbie Fowler (in terrific form since re-joining pool)
Marlon Harewood
Dean Ashton
Michael Chopra (just joking)
Jermain defore
Darren Bent

WE WON!!!!!!!! (a spot in the next round!) new [re: b_mardle]  

Geez, if you were in Australia today, anyone would think we had won the Cup already!!! Never has a draw been more exciting, dodgy ref calls and all. What a game.

We're in round II - WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!!

Re: WE WON!!!!!!!! (a spot in the next round!) new [re: SoulLoveChild]  

Congratulations to the Aussies, they both deserve & warrant their place in the 2nd Round The English players could learn a lesson or two from the passionate Aussies who've played their matches with conviction & utter belief in themselves -- but for a couple of dodgy decisions by the ref in the tie previous to Croatia, they'd have surely drawn, if not beaten Brazil.

I seriously fancy Australia to beat the Iti's.

COME ON ENGLAND!

I just got back from the post office. The kid behind the counter was sporting a soccer injury whilst an older fella of Italian descent was seriously proud how soccer's been embraced.

Amazingly, Fed Square has been packed out in the freezing hours of the early morning - 10,000+ people gathered to watch on the big screen.
