Americans worried about the performance of their national team in the first half against the Slovenians can take comfort in the fact they didn’t SUCK AS BAD AS THE ENGLISH against Algeria for the entire game!

Sorry to get overly technical, but that 0-0 draw was horrible (and I say this as a native of England).

The English were just abysmal against Algeria with possibly their worst performance ever in any major competition. No imagination in midfield, no offensive cohesion, no player willing to take charge and be a leader. Has anyone seen Wayne Rooney?

These are EPL players. Really?

This is to take nothing away from the Algerians who were brighter, faster and generally more positive by any measure than the out of synch English.

Game story here.

Ugh. I need a shower.

    It’s coming down to Wednesday for the U.S to show up or go home. And what’s the deal with England underperforming (who what of thought??!?!)

    Its been a wild World Cup. We should get 3 points vs Algeria–and then hope for 1st in the group! If we can’t beat Slovenia or Algeria–we don’t deserve to move on.
