    Got it on now, only starting watching around 20 mins ago so I take it their performance has been lacklustre. Capt Rooney's pen was good.

    If we are relying on pens then we are a lot worse off than I thought!
    Not very good against a poor team. The Swiss will be harder to beat. The balance and quality is not right. We didn't and couldn't break their defence down. Not clever and tactically behind a lot of euro countries!
    I think we will struggle to qualify even though it is far easier now!

    We are just not good enough!

    The so called superstars can't hack it at international level!

    No! Nothing's changed!

    I've decided not to watch England anymore, it's really not worth the bother in my opinion. I'll change my mind when there's a manager in place who will take risks and pick players with flair. The current crop of lazy, good for nothing idiots aren't worth my time

    I got the win right. Cov were sweating at the end!

    As there is no premier game, the spotlight shines on the lower league clubs. Rovers going for back to back wins. First time in ages!
    C'mon the superwhites!

    Gunna seem strange with no footy today well not for us and the prem and limited div 1.Mr Powell has been hard at it on the training grounds with our lot.Hopefully hes licked em in to some sorta decent shape.Time will tell i guess.

    Bradford to wipe the floor with Yeovil.Up the Bantams
    Fleetwood should do the same with Oldham

    Tranmere to beat Accy

    Stevenage v York to draw

    Morcambe and Cheltenham should be a ding dong and prob be a draw

    Another one not happy. No games for 2 weeks, and now it seems no manager or coach either. Riga failed to get Oyston the owner to sign up 4 new players, announced the club had no hope of staying in the Championship this season without them and promptly left the country for his home in Belgium. His assistant left. No official statements, just rumours, but Riga has been seen this afternoon back in Blackpool. Probably just come back to collect his stuff, and who can blame him. No manager or player worth their salt will sign for this miserable rogue of an owner.

    Can't believe that your club has thrown away the ability to compete. The owners are committing suicide in the football sense. He's like a baby that's thrown his dummy out of the pram. You will be playing us in two years time if you are not careful!

    The Oyston family owns the stadium. They are estate agents and property developers. 'nuff said.
