Sod Walcott !. Hargreaves is in, so why aren't I ?.
Our cerebral head coach has taken all the time he could to arrive at the following as England's best effort for strikers.
yet-to-play a game since 2005 Owen
a not-played any club football since January Walcott
a beanpole who 'gives you options'
Any one of these is understandable, the risk of any two if you've taken 5 strikers is chancy, but WTF ?. I wonder if the 5th striker was going to be John Prescott until McLaren insisted on taking a Middlesbough player?.
Wait and see,how old was Pele when he played in his first world cup,16 I think. He explained about King,we already have 4 good center halve's why take a crocked one.Listening to the press,all the moaning is coming from the Seven Sisters Road Brigade.
Good on you Sven,F**king good squad,and some balls from its manager,what else do you want.
But at least Pele played a few games for his club before taking the world by storm. As for Hargreaves, you have got to be kidding. Im glad downing and Lennon are in, but no Dafoe or Shaun WP is a mistake in my opinion. We shall wait and see. Looks like Joe Cole will get an advanced roll behined Owen. Sven might even go 4-3-3
Give the lad a chance I say, Wenger rates him highly and traditionally, England have always produced the suprise players of the tournament. I'm just peed off that Scott Parker hasn't been named, he's been awesome all season.
I am biased but how can he not take Ledley King? not even on the standby list. This after Erikson made alot of trying to convert him to midfield holding player so that he would be a flexible squad player.
As for Walcot..... hope he proves me wrong but I think Sven is having a laugh. I am sure we could find a fast 17-18 yrold who has been playing lower division football on a regular basis.
DS.Sven said thats different on the press conference,if he hadn't included Rooney there would have been riots.Only when its certain Rooney will not figure will a replacement be drafted in.Rooney has to be a special case anyway,King is nowhere near his class.
I cant believe this England Squad for the World cup, we have players like James Beatie (everton) or Shawn wright Phillips (chelsea) and they arent being called up. Even P.Neville (everton) is better than some of those called up and isnt even thought of.... what on earth is going on ?!?
