    King instead of dawson? I’m not too sure about that, based on form n fitness. Pity on bent too, husky has done nothing recently to warrant a place.

    Carrick’s in yet Walcott out?
    Fantastic, I can’t wait to see us chasing the game and he brings on Carrick to go for the kill.
    What’s the point in taking a player that can’t get in the United side unless it has injuries….

    I think Bent should be in the squad instead of Heskey,bent did well in his club,and i know he is way fitter than heskey so yea,i think he deserves much in England squad,

    I’m not surprised by the selection. Michael Carrick has the ability to slow a game down and intercept a passing teams balls e.g. Brazil. He is simply no good at getting forward and is a sideways passing speccialist but he can catch a pass and intercept a ball at crucial times.
    Walcott is pony. it’s not good calling him an impact player and saying that he can help England when chasing a game when his final product into the box is diabolical. He is what Lennon was 2 years ago.
    Heskey got the nod over Bent based on his international experience and ability to work well with Rooney. Bent looks terrible for England and needs a team to play to his strengths to help him succeed. He has looked great this season but just like at Spurs he won’t shine for England.

    I have seen the future and believe me its sad Ferdinand bad back Barry bad Ankle King bad Knee Lennon bad groin Rooney bad Ankle Terry bad everything stuck together with super glue one good point his dad wont be going to Jail for selling Coke he has got 100 hours community . Joe Cole long absence Ashley Cole long absence and bad marriage divorce Carrick bad form Warnock out for long injury not tried Shaun wright Phillips 45 mins with ten fresh pairs of legs won is plane ticket on easy jet Gerrard best form of the pitch fighting in bars and trying to save is marriage from the gossips and front pages of the Star Carragher is ten yards slower when he puts the England shirt on the reason will remain in my and his head and was why he quit but there is no champions league for Liverpool form from good to shocking like Liverpools form especially when the rumourman tells tales about Paddy Kenny. Upson leaked loads of goals in his and Greens West ham defense. So you see the future is in safe hands and experience crocks and out of form players Perfect for Capelow to go to Inter milan and the Luxury of fixed Matches . Hard Luck DAWS AND TOM ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY .Lets hope the England bad form and crocks do.
