    One can but hope.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    but still having him as an defensive option in the WC would still be good. I hope he can make it..

    I'd feel happier with King in that role than Hargreaves...
    But based on this season surely Carrick is the form man for that position?

    Will Carrick make the starting XI though?, the only way is if Cole is dropped and Gerrard is put on the left and i dont want that.

    Why on earth would that happen, joe cole is very important to the side, dropping him to force gerrard wide and move carrick in would be a terrible idea, the only way carrick can hope to start is if one of gerrard or lampard gets injured.

    It's looking more and more likely England are going to lose Jimmy to Germany

    And what a great loss that would be.

    Can they take Hargreaves as well please?

    He can speak German can he not?

    Though I believe Jürgen Klinsmann has said on many occasions that if the player is not German from birth or from growing up in Germany than he will not be selected. Not only applies to Jimmy Bullard but Valérien Ismaël as well, he really would be a definitive starter for Germany but instead it now looks like he may line up for Togo in the World Cup. Maybe with Germany's awful performances of late, Klinsmann may go back on his word.

    Kevin Kuranyi?

    Born & raised in Brazil, I think.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Correct but he was not capped by Jürgen Klinsmann. Gerald Asamoah is another one who currently plays but he went to Germany when he was a lad.

    Totally forgot about Asamoah, but any road I think if you move to a country as a kid it's different to moving there as an adult. Klose & Podolski were both born in Poland, but moved to Germany as children. Makes them German in my book, if that's what they feel inside.

    I'm too much of a luddite to know how to do that funny accent-thingy...

    Is Germany really considering calling up Bullard tho? They must be in worse shape than I thought!
