If in doubt put it out

That is the golden rule of defending. Simple stuff.

I have no idea what Paul Robinson was thinking of tonight...England where one up and bossing the game against an under-strength German team. The first real thing Germany had produced lead to him spilling a shot, fair enough it happens...he then chased back to Shorey who had swept up the danger and hoofed it out to the left back position from where Germany could restart their attack...he then completely misread a cross and ended up scambling back towards his own goal to collect it, instead of tipping it over the bar he plopped it down into his own 6 yards area for a German striker to tap into the net...appalling.
