Did England do it to themselves?

Over the past days there has been dozens of articles asking if McLaren should stay if England qualify or the teams England could get if England qualify...

I think some of the players even had these thoughts too...

You can not go into a game with a team like Croatia and assume you are already through.

Its quite clear really... Eriksson was under-rated as an England manager.

Id take him back tommorow

We need to progrees big time now, this is our chance.

Like i say..what would be the point intaking a shit team and manager to a tournament we have no chance of winning.. we have a chance to change sometihng now.

Seriously, if wed ahve qualifed hed have been been in for a year minimum..that would be awful.

Thanks Croatia, you ahve saved me future dignity

I'd also go for the Mercedes cars

Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.

They are a better side than us full stop. All they did tonight was prove that fact. La Fad please don't put your head in the sand like so many. I thought Xtratime was an escape from all that.

We are superor to England, we showned it over two legs, the last ment nothing to us and everything for Englands overrated players!

Can you imagine a country of 4,5m people producing so much talent!?

We have a great young NT and today the whole world saw it! (except the English media of course).

And Olic scored! That's like the end of any NT who he scores against.

Kovac didn't have the best of matches today, still a very imported player for us. The other once were great!

I see you are a City fan ...Corluka was pure class today

Not a fan as such but I take interest in them since Eriksson and Bianchi are there...

Corluka is always pure class... one of the best defenders in England at the moment.

How utterly English of you; sublime arrogance even in total defeat. They beat you in Croatia, they beat you on your Ł700 million mudpatch. They finished with far more points and goals scored.


Croatia are better than England.

...for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.

Croatia toyed with England tonight.

If it was winner take all, Croatia could have won by 6.

Croatia is a better NT than England. Simply. You guys should assume it and start to play football in the next qualifiers. The tactic of the "stupid balls forward" doesn´t work anymore.

You guys can improve. It would be difficult to play worse...
