    A decent performance and good victory for us tonight. Still need to be more creative in attack (having Wilshere and / or Lallana fit will help with that), but we are finally retaining the ball well. Encouraging signs.

    This is probably the worst Netherlands side in living memory though. Looking "decent" against them doesn't say very much.

    True, they are bad; and we've had these false dawns before, where we've played well in friendlies and then disappointed when it really matters.

    But despite how bad Holland are, we looked good on the ball, and the defenders (I am very impressed with Maguire in particular) looked comfortable in passing their way out of trouble. In the recent past, we've looked uncomfortable in possession against worse teams than this Dutch one, and everyone complained about how we just used to boot it downfield. So I'm encouraged that we looked constructive and calm on the ball tonight; it's something we've been crying out for for as long as I can remember.

    If we can keep it going, then we will be moving in the right direction.

    Read that Joe Hart won't make the WC squad for England.

    Not all to surprising considering how much he declined and how erratic his performances have been in Italy and for West Ham.

    Has to be Pope in goal, he's by far our best 'keeper.

    Really disappointed with the midfield selections. We have absolutely no creativity in midfield. We needed Wilshere and Lallana. Our best hope now is to sit deep and counterattack by playing the ball over the top for Vardy.

    Pope has horrible distribution. I would be very surprised if he wasn't third choice.
