These are the kinds of players who deserve their place. Chelsea (indeed Mourinho) gave Crespo and Drogba so much space, Wright-Phillips could have been an important striker for England. He must go away from Chelsea, go to a team such Tottenham for instance

its fair to say he would have been a certainty for the WC had he stayed at Man City or moved to any other team than Chelsea!

Beckham (Captain and new captain Marvel - this will be his tournament)
Gerrard (Sheer sheer class)
Lampard (sheer sheer class)
Downing (sorry Joe Cole but Downings on fire)
Owen (the best when at his best)
Crouch (the suprisingly skillfull front foil)

I have a good feeling about this one.





however please be gentle with me after we fuck it up against T & T and Paraguay
I'd go along with most of that line up, but I'd just squeeze Cole in ahead of Downing, take what you're saying about him, & he'd definitely be on the bench, but Joe Cole, on his day is pure class, But, I definitely disagree with that lanky streak of P*SS crouch, I wouldn't have him in my lads school team, he is definitely a case of high profile club must be in England squad syndrome, when the bindippers kick him out he won't get a sniff at international football, & that can't happen soon enough.

Crouch isn't well known in the rest of the world, he could be a surprise perhaps if he gets undervalued

But when you play with certain players called Beckham, Gerrard and Lampard at your back....................you know they can give assists that even my 5 year young cousin would score!
So, maybe Crouch will show something he hasn't still showed

Well seeing as sven has taken him, & now Rooney's definitely out of the group stage, & probably the whole tournament, I sincerely hope he does, I'm just not going to hold my breath waiting for it to happen

as a villan I understand your concerns on crouch. bear in mind he made the squad when at southampton. as awkwardas he looks he has very good skill and awareness of others. his heading is improving and owen plays well off him.

Our team is solid in defence. the midfield are very very strong with world class midfielders who also love to score. owen would be first choice anyway so the only way the team could be improved would be a player as good as shearer or sherringham at their peak next to owen. we dont have that with Rooney out so Crouch with all his awkward appearance just needs to keep the ball, play it simple and let own and the midfield come up and play off him (god this sounds great) and every game is won 4 or 5 nil.

its coming home!

There is definitely something that seperates league players from international players(most people call it class), & I'm not having a go at crouch cos he plays for the bindippers, I never felt Andy Cole had what it takes at international level either, but crouch like heskey just hasn't got what it takes, now people may point to the fact that he scored SOME goals for liverpool, & he's tall, so he should be able to knock down crosses for Owen,but he just hasn't got what it takes, as a target man I've personally never seen a weaker header of the ball in my entire life, & his finishing, well lets just say it leaves a lot to be desired, its only my opinion, but, I think it, a) shows a terrible lack of quality forwards in England(& I don't really believe that, with the likes of Defoe, Beattie, Johnson), or,b) like I said earlier eriksson suffers from a disease that has afflicted many England managers before him, Big Club Syndrome

Anyone know if they are gonna have an "upside down world cup" again this year. In 2002, the lowest ranked nations, Bhutan and Montserrat played each other on the eve of the WC final. (Bhutan won 4-nil and are now ranked about 180-odd). At this stage, this year's match would be between Turks & Caicos vs Guam. Anyone know if they're gonna do the same thing this year?

Dont know if anyone saw it, but the Aussies looked mighty convincing in Thursday's friendly against Greece in front of 95000 people in the most beautiful city in the world. The Hiddink Factor could seriously come into play come our matches against Japan, Croatia and Brazil.

Also, what's everyone's verdict on the African teams who've qualified? I'm liking the Ivory Coast. Just a shame they got a bloody hard group. Ghana are in a similar situation. Tunisia could realisitically qualify from Group H, provided they account for Suadi Arabia and get at least a draw against Spain or Ukraine. Angola could get a result against Iran, but could get thumped by their former colonisers Portugal, unless they do a Senegal....Togo could be a dark horse against a suspect French side, an unproven South Korea, and the Swiss.

Not necessarily....rooney isn't all that brilliant anyway, and if England can top group B and if Germany tops group A, the Poms would face either an overrated poland, an ecuador side who are useless away from the high altitude of home and a costa rica side who really shouldn't be there...

Mind you, a Germany vs England round of 16 match is mouth-watering. I'd hope the Deutsch can smash the whinging poms off the park, but this German team is in such dissaray with a pretty uninspiring coach in Klinsmann and poor recent form.
