Haha you better hope that Rooney and Defoe can go 90 the whole match. Peter Crouch is absolute garbage i can't believe they put him on the squad. Hell Heskey isn't to bad, he was pretty good when he was at Wigan. Its hard to believe out of all the strikers in England there arent two better strikers than Crouch and Heskey though.. Bent was a monster this year, hell shoulda given Agbonlahor a chance, he's got crazy pace he woulda ran some loops around defenders out there.

Must admit I´m always amazed how Heskey comes up in the final plan. I also read that Paul Scholes was asked to join the WC team but he refused. Not enough young top level players who want to play for England????

It's worth having a bet! we wont qualify...ha! ha! too many names that did'nt perform last WC, or European tournament.. or under previous managers either..gerrard! never has a good game? and like too many big names? they keep getting selected. and winning!! that is what will not happen? this time around too...

Same for the French team, local supermarkets have set up a bet:

If they go 1/4 final you get 25% of your new tv back
1/2 final = 50%
FINAL = free TV .
In other words they are safe to bet the team will go home before.....
It's good marketing to say the least. :)

I am quite shocked that Lennon and Wright-Phillips made the cut and Walcott did not. Walcott certainly needs to improve his final 1/3rd game, but you can't deny that he had some rather excellent games for Arsenal this year, and his blazing speed more then makes up for his lack of finesse at this point. Lennon and Wright-Phillips don't have that speed, and IMHO they aren't any better at finishing in the final 1/3rd either.

And Milner - isn't he still injured? I think I read that he might be able to start practicing after the first or second game of the WC -seems like a rather risky move. The England team is a bunch of old people or injured people.

And France - I am still confused how Abou Diaby made the cut over team mate Samir Nasri...Nasri typically started over Diaby. How the managers pick their teams is beyond me...

Rooney should score the necessary goals but it is interesting to see if the Premier league midfield "cannons" can start scoring this time for England. Time for Lampard and Gerrard to hit the net in the WC like they do in the Premier League-at least Lampard did well last season.

The England squad is the OLDEST and MOST CAPPED SQUAD they have ever fielded. I am thinking Capello will be short lived as England Manager.

I think he signed a new contract until 2012? If he gets the sack it means he will be paid well until then....nothing new in the market but I guess they had to keep him as Inter was pretty interested...

he'll be on the edge of his seat in the qualifiers, if we don't beat usa.. and that is a possibility too, first game needs a win, a draw! dodgy times ahead?

Very dodgy, given the team selection. Pre-selection, I would have favored England 2 vs 1 USA, but now, with the selection, I am not so sure.

I was surprised with Wright Phillips as well, not so much Lennon. Although, if Wright Phillips plays the way he did early on in the year for Man City it should be an interesting threat. IMO, i think he is a more complete player than Theo Walcott. Sure Walcott has pace, but he doesnt know how to make runs at the centre backs without the ball at all, besides his pace i dont think he's anything spectacular in regards to his play making decisions. Still reminds me of the same Walcott i watched as a 16 year old for Southampton. He's pretty much transparent on the international stage, mind you he had a hat trick v croatia but that looks more like a one off performance than anything consistent. Lennon has some blistering pace as does Wright Phillips, WP can also move forward to play in an attacking role as well as mid field, showing his versatility. Hell i woulda stuck young Jack Wilshere into the fray a seen what he can do, that kid has an amazing future.

Premier League stats this season:

Aaron Lennon
Appearances: 22
Assists: 10
Goals: 3

Shaun Wright-Phillips
Appearances: 30
Assists: 8
Goals: 4

Theo Walcott
Appearances: 23
Assists: 2
Goals: 3


^ that probably goes some way to explain why Walcott has finally been dropped from the squad. Combined with the fact that he's been living off the glory of a hat-trick against Croatia, and done little else for England. Walcott can run very fast, but it doesn't make him a footballer.
