Agree with that. An hopefully the majority of fans have forgiven him for not competing in the u-21 tournament last year. Good to see Agbonglahor get a call up. Hopefully he'll get 30 mins or something to see how he gets on.

Steven Howard has an excellent column in The Sun today...not only about Becks, but how the era of 'caps for the boys' has come to an end and someone like Owen may start to worry soon about his 'automatic' selections.
I think he deserved to be picked for this squad - Capello knows his record for England and the fact that he's had a tough time with injuries for a while now, but he'll expect him to start proving himself at Newcastle pretty sharpish, and that's gonna be no easy task!

the only real disappointment in the squad is kirkland getting in ahead of rob green. green has been superb last season and this season too and i think it's quite unfair on him to not get called up.

this is the side i'd like to see start

---------------------carson--------------------

richards-----Rio-----------King---------cole(if fit)

bentley-----gerrard-------barry-------young

--------------rooney--------agbonlahor-------

normally i'd choose hargreaves over barry but hargreaves hasn't played much football of late due to injury whereas barry plays 90 mins every week.

King is a class act when fit so i'd like to see him get a run out and i'd really like to see what bentley and young can do on the wings. although i've got a feeling capello will probably start joe cole.

i think james is a better keeper than carson but at 37 i really don't see the benefit in playing david james with the world cup in mind.

Im looking forward to seeing agbonlahor in action along side rooney or owen. Glad to see heskey in the fold, last time he played for us he proved me and probs the majority of the nation wrong.

Agree pretty much with that team and with what you say about James.

Cole to play (if fit) should perhaps read - Cole to play (if balls not cut off!)

I hate Huth. He always seems to have a bad attitude on the pitch. Chelsea reject.

Last gasp own goal saved us from what would've been our 4th league defeat of the season at White Hart Lane. Amazing how we can have such a great game during the week and be on a high after Ronaldo's free kick got the nation talkin - and then play like donkeys for nearly 70 mins on saturday.

Arsenal win again - the heat is on!

Liverpool players gave 6ft 7in striker Peter Crouch a stepladder for his birthday. The joke gift came with a note that suggested Crouch's girlfriend would now be able to reach him. (The Sun)

That scouse humour, gets you every time, eh?

Oh shit, just when I was thinking/hoping we'd seen the last of him.....

Fergie: Fletcher Will Get His Chance

By Site Editor Friday, 1st February 2008

Sir Alex Ferguson has said that Darren Ferguson has not fallen-out-ot-favour at Old Trafford.

On the contrary, the United boss has vowed to give the Scotland international midfielder every chance to regain a first team place in the final few months of the season.

"I feel for Darren Fletcher," Fergie told the Manchester Evening News.

"I have not been playing him in the last two or three games but he is a fantastic player for United.

"He never lets us down. He plays well in all the big games.

"He must be feeling down but I will make sure he gets his opportunities because you need players like him in the squad."


He must have seen different matches to the ones I've watched when fletcher has played.

^ I don't mind Fletcher to be honest. He's not the best but he's not the worst at Old Trafford either. I'd rate him on a par with the likes of Park Ji Sung. He must be finding it difficult now with midfielders like Carricik, Scholes and now Anderson and Nani ahead of him. Shame there's no league cup games left for him to get a run out in!

He always puts on a display for Scotland oddly enough...

New England boss Fabio Capello's first words to his assembled squad were: "I hate losing". (Daily Star)


does he know what team he's managing? I think he's gonna be a tad upset in the next couple of years, coz if there's 1 thing that shower of shite he's in charge of are good at, its LOSING!

It's the 50th anniversary of the Munich air crash today. There will be a minutes silence before the game at Wembley tonight
