    Did anybody see the March edition of 442 where they simed the 2006 World Cup three times and each time England meeting Germany in the final and winning it three times, winning twice and losing once? The third one being a 4-4 draw and Germany winning on penalties.

    Take that Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Adriano and co.

    King to miss World Cup

    Guess what? Another broken bone in an England player's foot. Who'da thunk it?!?

    4 weeks sounds very optimistic to me. Certainly opens up the "utitlity" slot; maybe Neville (P) might finally make a world cup squad after all. Beeb report mentions Wes Brown, but with 4 centre-halves seemingly nailed-on a specialist seems a luxary to me.

    From the beeb's site:

    Who's the 4th one nailed on?

    Can only think of Carragher, Terry and Ferdinand.

    Ha. Assuming he's fit & his head's right I think you can guess.

    Oh, Campbell.

    I was thinking of the yet another injury as being the final straw!

    Still, at least this injury means we won't have to put up with a midfielder isn't a midfielder and who cannot pass more than 5 yards accurately.

    I thought King had done ok as the holding midfielder myself. Personally with Rio @ CH (as seems likely now) I would prefer the extra cover he provides.

    I'd guess with King out it'll mean Stevie G as the last man at the back of a diamond, which (given his inability to tackle) seems a waste of his ability to me.

    Yes, he did well winning the ball, but was then clueless as to what to do next.

    I suppose Carrick will get that role with Gerrard pushed to the left and Jole Cole on the bench as an impact player I guess.

    Of course there is always a certain "Englishman" (as Piscine would say) playing for Bayern Munich anyway... (*hide*)

    Actually out of interest I would love to know what Piscine thought when Hargreaves was picked for England despite only qualifying for England by the virture of his father and having never played there professionally.

    Ledley king if you ask me is not a huge loss, as marc has said he is an ineffectual midfilder, and given everyone being fit he would not have got a game in defence as he would probably only be 5th choice anyway.

    I don't really know Hargreaves' background enough to comment on him, it's the ones that have like a grandfather that's Irish or whatever and they play for Ireland because of that. If you've got one parent that's English than you've got *some* argument to be considered English at the very least.
