England World Cup Squad for SA 2010

#1
Hmm.

Having watched every England game for the last 3 years diligently, we have taken some flack for poor performances in the last couple.

However, we actually played better than we normally do in friendlies IMHO. Now we look to the World Cup.

Fabio is announcing today. My guess is:

Green (James, Hart )

Defence
Johnson (Carragher)
Terry, Ferdinand (King, Upson)
Cole (Baines)

Midfield (fairly interchangeable)
Cole, Lampard, Gerrard, Milner (Barry, Lennon, Walcott, Johnson)

Strikers
Rooney (Crouch)
Defoe (Heskey)


I think that gives me twenty three. Any offers?

Wright-Phillips may have done enough on Sunday to push Walcott out, as for the rest, I would pretty much agree

Sky Sports reckon Barry has passed his medical

Being Jockanese I've not put too much though into this, other than planning my viewing schedule. But even I find myself shaking my head in disbelief everytime I see Heskey step on to the field in an England shirt.

The chips have fell off my shoulders over the years, so i'd like to take this opportunity to wish you bon chance, just leave the patio chairs on the ground this time.

SWP in. Barry in. Walcott out then? I reckon Bent can put some leave in too*.
* Not that I agree with that decision, I just think Capello prefers him. Personally, I think he's had a great season, scored a hat full of goals for a mediocre team. But whether the Italian wants him or not is the question.

Bent is an excellent striker. Which makes me wonder why, when he was given a chance the other day, he stood on the edge of the 18 yard box pointing at his head instead of playing the way he has all season for Sunderland.

He was looking for the beach ball 8O

Please don't. It still hurts.

I actually think that he would make a good partner for Mr Torres next season.

But is he a good partner for Rooney / Crouch / Defoe?

More rumours on BBC* and other sources saying Walcoot has missed out.


Yeah, yeah, not to be believed!
How rumours work - whether they turn out to be true or not.

Working backwards. At 10am - Walcott is at Heathrow booking onto a flight to the carribbean.

Turns out that Capello called him this morning whilst he was playing golf in order to give him the bad news. Came as a bit of a shock to the boy wonder.

What time must he have a) teed off b) received a call from Capello c) gotten off the golf course to be at Heathrow for 10am, having packed a bag, found a holiday, booked a holiday, cleared APIS and let everybody know?

I do love days like today. By the way, my missus books masseuses for the england team and she has been told that they all have to be under fifty. So I can tell you now that Rooney isnt going.
