I think it doesn’t look very relevant of writing about Steve on this blog but this one crossed my limits and couldn’t hold on to write this one.Continue reading if you dont like Steve . Few days back on Nov 15 ,England played against Austria at Vienna.The match as expected was won by England but this lead to few stumbles for England’s coach.Steve intially thought that he would win this one with far more goals and oppurtunities which will in case boost morale for Englishmen.So without much of thoughts and talks he makes full strength team against the team for which Eng 21 wont have bother to play.But still he continues and what all feared happens.A damn bad Injury!.. England’s forward and Newcastle’s in form striker Micheal Owen who recently recovered from his injury few months gets back on bed.This time with thigh strain and likely to miss his next crucial match against Croatia for EURO qualifiers. It looked as if England traded one goal for Micheal Owen are they so much desperate? The match was fruitless and didnt required to be bothered for anyone and with few managers too.Many managers did allow their players to play this one without keeping club interest for which Newcastle had to suffer. It looked as if England’s coach isnt confident about his team.The only reason which eventually comes out for making first line up for friendlies is that you are confused with your tactics and want to experiment in friendlies.You cant figure out which players suits where and take a step more further to discover whats perfect.This shows how confused he is.He even doesn’t makes his brain get a bit of strain.We all know that now English Premier league is going to its top priority stage along with many International ones coming and the Champions league just a step further.Does show high smartness . England are already suffering up front without Rooney and no first time strikers are in fine form for English..Though our Fergie played a smart move by not allowing his first team players to play only for Brown kicking the ball for just one half. One more thing that i noticed was he didn’t play out with Downing.He plays out with England’s best midfield including Gerrard,Lampard and Barry and still doesn’t bother picking Downing against them keeping in mind with injuries English midfield are suffering.Was that a smart move.? England are already suffering from Droughts with wins and manager looking careless is making matters worse.I think its time for FA to make few quick decisions regarding Steve’s Job or overshadow what standards premier league has.More time Steve does these blunders the more time it takes England for recover.
