    But the writer is talking about a long history of failures in international tournaments. I don't think being a couch analyst for a couple games will suffice. Otherwise the FA would have solved it a long time ago.

    I find these knee-jerk reactions comical. Maybe some of these posters should learn a little more about football history. England are ranked 5th in the all-time FIFA World Cup rankings. The reached the quarter-finals in 2006 and 2002 and reached the semi-finals in 2000. The y reached the quarter-finals of Euro 2012 and 2004. So my couch analysis of this very recent failure stands up to the incorrect analogy of a long history of failure. Only 8 different nations have won the World Cup since 1930 so England's long history stands up.

    English don't do sports well, name a sport they are world champions in, right thought so.

    They had their heyday back in 66 and have won nothing since in world football, not likely to win anything else soon either. The USA has more chance of winning anything in football than eng does.

    Their rugby team just got trounced 3 nill in a series and often get beaten by weaker nations like wales france and Ireland, their cricket team used to get smashed all over by the aussies and indian teams, anything else these English men cant do ?

    12 rimes European club champions (4 times since 1999)/ Mo Farah reigning 5k and 10k world champion and double Olympics Gold 5k and 10k Golds/ Current Womens Keirin, Sprint, & Team Pursuit World Champions/ 2012 and 2013 Tour de France winners/ Current Mens Keirin & Track Points World Champions/ current IBF Super Middleweight, IBF Bantamweight, WBA Bantamweight, WBA Junior Featherweight World Champions/ 3rd in the most recent 2012 Olympics medal table with 29 gold medal winners.

    Must be rubbish at sport.

    This getting far too deep into what is a very simple reason. This coach (Hodgson) made tactical errors. Simple as that.

    You don't survive a group stage by playing attacking attractive football with young players. Not against Italy and Uruguay. Hodgson went to Brazil saying that we did not expect to win anything and talking up his young attacking squad. Another mistake. Draws against Italy and Uruguay after levelling in both games would have left England in a strong position to qualify.

    England played 3 strikers (Sturridge, Rooney, and Welbeck) plus an attacking winger (Sterling) leaving only 2 midfielders totally isolated. The only cover for Baines at left back was a striker (Rooney). The Italians took advantage and Hodgson still didn't get Milner on. Tactically naive.

    English football is fine. Sturridge, Sterling, Wilshere, Oxlade, Hart, Walcott, Townsend, Barkley. All great young players that any country would want.

    What a cover up. If Coulson was found guilty then so should she. She was his boss.

    After the England game Suarez had a go about criticism from the English press.

    It's because you bite other players you twat.

    "Make no doubt about it, Roy is the man to take us forward. We appreciate what he has done for us".

    Make no doubt about it, Roy took us straight back home after only 2 group games.

    "As a team we can feel we are getting better".

    God help us when they feel they are getting any worse....

    1. The (managerial) inability to comprehend that 2 draws against Italy and Uruguay would have placed England in a good position after 2 games. England had the ability to draw level in both games, but like a group of eager boys in the school playground, went for wins in both games and were caught wide open at the back.

    Cannot believe that Hodgson ends up with the worst England World Cup record since the 1950's, and gets a vote of confidence for the upcoming Euros!? A big mistake in not taking Ashley Cole and also in letting John Terry retire.

    And so it appears that the general consensus here is that Kearney did not deserve to score more points than Uemura after so many mistakes. And thankfully DeShazo, Slump, Presto, Serrano, and Trevor appear to have witnessed exactly what I saw.

    It is also unfortunate that the overwhelming opinion is positioned alongside a very well-known pro-Korean disliker of all things Japanese who is still permitted to troll on here. Kearney did not deserve to finish above Uemura, plain and simple and based on common sense. Sore loser?? So every time someone expresses an opinion regarding a poor sporting decision (the history of sport is littered with scoring mistakes) then they are immediately labelled a sore loser? Maybe you would give in far too easily and accept a wrong decision, but not me my friend, regardless of any Korean 'sore loser' jibes.

    How on earth did Uemura get less points than Kearney and lose the bronze? Kearney's run was awful and was sliding off the moguls unbalanced. So how could Kearney be awarded more points than Uemura? I get the impression that certain big-name stars are awarded a minimum number of points regardless of their (poor) performance. Watch the run again and then tell me it was worthy of an Olympic bronze medal.

    Why is this not the headline news? And why are no posters interested enough to comment? Sad.

    You won't be a lawyer.

    I guess that makes you wrong for the second time. Never pass judgement without any evidence.

    Kim Jong-Un's dictatorship family have an absolutely appalling human rights record for abuses against their own people. Maybe you should check Amnesty International's site to read some of the horrific stories about life in North Korea.

    And whilst you bang on about freedom of speech, you have given absolutely no consideration of someone with some media influence (Rodman) publicly backing such a regime as if everything there is fine. Fans of Rodman could believe such statements.

    So maybe instead of incorrectly stating that certain posters would never become lawyers, maybe spend some time reading Amnesty's accounts of young children in North Korea, orphaned and left to rot in the street. Or maybe of the whole families sentenced to labour camp jails because of a family members 'crimes'.

    Or I guess you are not going to give any credence to the work that Amnesty International do..?

    Aren't you guys allowing him a freedom of speech? Geez. That's what freedom is all about. He is not hurting anyone. Is he hurting you? You need to grow up.

    That's an interesting quote. You mean to grow up, unlike those desperate orphaned North Korean children left to freeze or starve to death outside in the streets and who won't 'grow up' thanks to the family dictatorship that Rodman is supporting. Grow up, yeah good one.

    I was at Arsenal Spurs and despite Arsenal being without any recognised centre forward (Giroud, Bendtner) and also without Ramsey and Ozil, they outclassed a rejuvenated and in-form (won at United last time) Spurs and were impressive. Time to start taking Arsenal a little more seriously?

    I was fortunate to be at the game yesterday. Very impressed with Everton and if I were an Everton fan I would be more worried about losing their world-class manager Martinez. And that lad on loan from Barcelona is proving to be class. Giroud almost won it at the death but to be fair that would have been harsh on Everton.

    shallots, I did not say that this story is acceptable in any way. But if you have read this news site over the years you would be aware of these headline shock stories about Japanese health care. In a population of 100 million unfortunately mistakes are going to be made. And in my experience the Japanese system is a good one.

    Viking, in Japan I had to undergo a regular over-40's annual mens health check which is a national requirement and free. It is designed to save lives. In the UK they just cant be bothered with such a vital screening. In Tokyo my children had stringent health treatment. In London my children are told not to come into the surgery until the evening. In Tokyo you will always get seen that day. In London you need to make an appointment a couple of days in advance. Population of 100 million (good health service) versus population of 50 million (disgraceful health service).

    Living here in the UK, I have to laugh at the feeble attempts to dirty Japanese medical practice. Try living in London and see how you get on with the NHS in comparison. It's a minor miracle actually getting to see a doctor in the UK, let alone expect perfect treatment. The Japanese health system, which I experienced for 12 years, is fine.

    I am no fan of that brutal North Korean regime. But let's be honest, when a news site relies on a story from a very anti-North Korean agency (ex-defectors) and they themselves only had the 1 unidentified source, then we are falling into the realms of news media influencing. I would rather rely on more solid facts.

    A news headline based on 1 unidentified source, according to a right-wing South Korean group.

    80 according to the headline, read the story and that then becomes 8.

    Another defector-led news site said it had no information of any executions.

    I'm no fan of the North Korean regime, but don't be led astray by media hype.
