Having thought about it, I'm not going to list every player who's represnted the nation from those teams, rather, players who've come through the ranks of those teams, or, who were bought by those clubs, & turned into top class players.

Liverpool; Clemence, Keegan, Neal, Kennedy R, Kennedy A, Thompson, Hughes, Lee, Beardsley, yeah he was a top player at Newc. but in my opinion he became a truly world class player at Anfield, same for Barnes, Mcmanaman, Carragher, Gerrard, Owen.

Man. Utd; Hill, Coppell, Pearson, Greenhoff J, Robson(same as Beardsley), Sharpe, Neville G, Beckham, Scholes, Butt, Cole.

Arse; Seaman, Adams, Dixon, Keown, Rocastle, Davis, Wright, Cole.

Chelsea; Wilkins, Dixon K, Lampard, & Cole,(same as Beardsley).

Now along with players from other clubs over the years I haven't included, Rooney for eg.(class at Everton) if any manager can't do anything with players of that quality, you reall have to ask yourself about the quality of the manager!

If Gibson is just having a dig because the top clubs are also buying in top class talent as well, he should remember, all clubs have a duty, IMO, first & foremost to their fans, who pay hard earned money to support their clubs, & want to see them competing with the best, not only at home but in the C/L as well.

Once again though, we seem to have double standards on this issue, the press, & other people in the game can marvel at how Real Madrid can buy "Galactico's" from every corner of the world, but if the big English clubs buy big, thats whats "ruinning" the game in england!

I have to question Steve Gibsons integrity and honesty if he really thinks that Englands downfall is the big clubs fault and not the managers. I think i've written enough on here about what annoys me about mclaren and his inablility to do the job.

Gibson cannot blame the big clubs for bringing in foreign talent, as you said jimmm, all clubs have an obligation to their fans to put out the best team possible to compete for honours and if that means buying a foreign right midfielder who is better than any english right midfielder for example then so be it. It improves the team.

The sooner mclaren goes the better. He should swallow his pride and step down. The future of the england football team is vastly more important than the remainder of his contract.

Yeah, its not nice calling for a guy to be sacked, but its not as if he'd be strapped financially, & I really do think its time the English football supporters in general showed those incompetent old twats at the fa how strongly they felt, & boycott a couple of friendly matches, its only that kind of action those old dinosaurs would listen to, to let them know we're sick to the back teeth of being fobbed off with LOSERS! I really couldn't care less if the next manager comes from england or timbuktu, as long as, firstly he could get the team to actually play like a team, with entertaining, exciting, attacking football, & secondly he could get the team in with a chance however small of actually winning some silverware, but I'd take the first option to start with, to actually be able to look forward to an england game and expect to see FOOTBALL, what a nice feeling that would be!

i'd just like to see a coach that doesn't have a personal agenda, that's all.

mclaren's a complete tosser, and what's up with managers telling the press to give him time???

THERE IS NO TIME LEFT.

if england lose to israel, what real chance do they have of even making it to euro 2008??

it's absurd.

quite honestly, i think i could coach this side to better results than he has.

did ANYONE think playing crouch alone up front against spain would produce results?? ANYONE???

I feel sorry for Crouch. He played the lone role against Portugal in the World Cup and slogged his guts out. I dont think he played too badly against Spain either, that ref definetly had it in for him. But he does need someone up there with him.

Lampard should be dropped NOW. He does nothing for England anymore. Carrick was absolutely dire. But until Joe Cole comes back, who is going to play on the left hand side?

I'll be honest, I don't know much about Joey Barton's game, is he an attacking or a more defensive midfielder? Can he play on the wing even? I would like to see him given a go over Carrick and Lampard.

Fully fit team is as follows:

Robinson

Neville Terry Ferdinand A.Cole

Hargreaves

Beckham J.Cole

Gerrard

Owen Rooney


On a lighter note, QPR and China are declaring war!

Another cracking result for Sheff. Utd. today, I have relatives who live in Sheffield, all Blades fans, hope for their sake they stay up, looking highly likely at the moment.

Especially if wigan start picking up points. West Hams result cheered me up a bit after villa's poor showing at reading. Nothing worse than seeing your team miss chance after chance and eventually come away with nothing. Well, due to unfortunate fixture circumstances we have 3 weeks to put things right before the next game!

Sheffield United have really impressed me. I mean they don't play attractive football by any stretch of the imagination but at the start of the season i wouldn't have said their team was any better than watfords and look at the difference between the two.

Remaining fixtures for top 2

United

Fulham away
L'pool away
Bolton home
B'Burn home
Pompey away
Sheff. U home
Chelsea away
Boro home
Everton away
City away
West Ham home

Chelsea

Pompey away
City away
Sheff. U home
Watford away
Spurs home
West Ham away
UNITED home
newcastle away
Bolton home
Arsenal away
Everton home

from those 2 lists I can see United dropping points at Anfield, fancy a draw, Stamford Bridge, defeat, & Goodison, another draw, which would give United another 26 pts, added to 66 already total 92. I can see Chelsea dropping points at West Ham, draw, St.James,draw, & The Emirates, defeat, which would also give them another 26pts, making a total of 86, which would see UNITED win the league by 6 points, but then again if it was that easy to accurately forecast results, I'd be a millionaire by now!

Fixtures for teams at the bottom;

Watford;

Wigan, Everton, Charlton, Chelsea, Pompey, City, Newcastle - Home
Spurs, Boro, B'Burn, Sheff. U., Reading - Away

Charlton;

West Ham, Newc., Wigan, Reading, Sheff.U., Spurs - Home
Watford, City, Everton, B'Burn, L'Pool - Away


West Ham;

Spurs, Boro, Chelsea, Everton, Bolton - Home
Charlton, B'Burn, Arsenal, Sheff.U., Wigan, Man.Utd - Away

Wigan;

Newc., Fulham, Bolton, Spurs, West Ham, Boro, - Home
Arsenal, Watford, City, Charlton, Villa, L'Pool, Sheff.Utd., - Away

looking at those fixtures I can see, Wigan just scraping enough points to avoid the drop with 39 pts, Charlton putting in a late run but just falling short finishing with 38, Watford overtaking West Ham, but like Charlton too little, too late, & finishing with 36pts, & The Hammers rock bottom on just 32pts, but don't take my word for it, what do the rest of you think?

so after more than a month off the pitch, beckham comes back, scores and helps set up another as real madrid win 2-1.

simply put, beckham at the very LEAST deserves to be on england's bench. the man is absolutely deadly on set pieces, and his pace today was great by all accounts.

Having just seen the highlights on MOTD i don't know how West Ham did not score against Watford. They seem absolutely lifeless and with zero confidence. Harewoods penalty miss summed it up really.

I've always said that Beckham should be in the England squad. He's a class act and would serve far more of a purpose than the likes of Jenas, Crouch, ect..
I don't think he should start, i'd give the right side of midfield berth to Aaron Lennon as he offers more in terms of pace and skill, like a right winger should. But nevertheless, Beckham should be in the squad i think.

Jimmmm, a quick question. Why do you sometimes write 'united' as UNITED in block capitals? On other message boards i go on i've seen man united fans do this and i'd quite like to get to the bottom of this mystery. Is it because you see man united as the only true 'united' team as opposed to west ham united and newcastle united? or am i miles off?

1Step, Re, The UNITED thing, I suppose for me, & maybe for other UNITED fans on other message boards, it goes back to the '70's,& maybe even earlier than that, when I were nowt but a lad, one of the chants heard more often than others around OT was, "There's only 1 UNITED" & its stuck with me ever since, no doubt fans of other united's, leeds, Sheff, Newc etc, will think we're a bunch of arrogant F%$£ers, but thats what football rivalry's all about, isn't it?

Just watching that now on the Sun. AM. repeat, you're right 1Step, they look like a team as good as resigned to the inevitable, & looking at the table, realistically they can only catch Wigan, imo, & also looking at their remaining fixtures, I really can't see anything other than relegation for them.
