Not sure there's any setup that will stop the Yanks in two years time. Not a lot of top young Euros coming through other than Viktor and the core of that US team can go on for years and if anything only get better. I think the US are in for 3-4 in a row.

I honestly think the difference in quality overcomes any home advantage, no matter where they play. A Yank who wasn't even in with a sniff of making the team just took a quick trip to Wentworth and won the Euro tour's flagship event. It is a massive gulf in class.

But Billy is better than 4 of the captains picks. They have a strong team on the right course. But this gaff whilst looking amazing is a carzy of a course for Ryder Cup. It’s near impossible to miss fairways, greens huge and rough non existent. Which makes Poulter an even more curious pick….

Harrington made some strange choices regarding pairings. But McIlroy, Fleetwood, Hatton,Casey, Westwood, Fitzpatrick, Poulter were an embarrassment.

I thought the Yanks would win but it would be fairly close. This mob were utterly useless.

Ryder Cup in Rome looks tailor-made for the Yanks, and the European youngsters coming through are just not good enough.

Good to see we have our top man leading the charge. I think last night there was an hours coverage without showing him playing a single shot. On this evidence you would be hoping he doesn't qualify again.

Even Rahm mixed the very bad with the very good. Didn't see him hitting many fairways.

Aye your probably right, Poulter was awful the first 2 days. Lowry seemed to genuinely care as well we will give him a break. Still find it hard that Rosey was left out with his experience and was in some form after playing very well at Wentworth.

I think they lacked experience the team tbh, i know Westwood and polter have lots in the Ryder just past it imo to inspire or produce consistently. And we know Mcmug aint a leader of men. Rose got a bit about him tbf.

Players like chokeburger fitz casey just aint got the minerals for away turf. I wasn't sure Serge should have got a pick but he proved me wrong did v well.

Post match presser worth a quick look, all sat on sto00ls like naughty scholboys. There seems some banter regarding Tommy. Can imagime he is the type to put hos c0ck between his legs and walk around pretenting to be a bird in the locker rooms. Whatever he did the whole team showed more enthusiasm for that than they did on course.

The only reason Europe doesn't get beaten more often is the usual infighting in the Yank side.

No friction this time and the battering was duly administered. The European side were embarrassing and when the'old brigade' retire from Ryder Cup, we don't have any replacements.

The course in Rome will suit the Yanks and if they band together again, Europe will get walloped again.
