England below par says Wisdom

Andre Wisdom accepted that England's Under-21s underperformed as their European Championship ended in defeat to Israel.

The Liverpool defender was handed the captain's armband for the match against the hosts, who secured a memorable win when Ofir Kriaf curled the ball home with 10 minutes remaining in Jerusalem.

Defeat left England without a point from their three games, with their only goal coming from the penalty spot.

"We did not perform to the best of our abilities," the 20-year-old told Sky Sports.

"When you put on the England shirt, you have to perform at your best at all times. The lads and myself are all disappointed, we know we didn't do ourselves and our country justice.

"We just didn't get our finger on the plan we took into the game in the end. It's all part of an experience and we have got to try to move on from it."

Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce singled out Wisdom for praise while lambasting his players for their performance in the defeat to Israel, and Wisdom hopes that Pearce will continue in the role despite recent results.

"Stuart's a great manager, me and all the lads appreciate his work on the training field. If he does stay on it will be great for us, he was a great player with great experience and hopefully we can keep moving on."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
