    And no, the Bullard thing is never happening (no matter how much my dad and stepmum tell me it is ...but what do they know? They're Wiganers), but it's more likely than him playing for England. Which is good for a giggle.

    Or press Alt Gr and a at the same time - far easier.

    What's it called? Will have to check it out...

    World In Motion was quite good but I think 3 Lions '98 was much better!

    World in Motion for me, but 3 Lions is kwality too. Vindaloo deserves a mention as does the largely forgotten, but quite wonderful England's Irie by Black Grape with Keith Allen. Contains the genius lyrics:

    Hey diddle-diddle, there's a fella in the middle and I think he's pulling my string
    My wife's lactating and I'm spectating
    It's a football thing
    I live in a land of class hypocracy,
    We're going to win the National Lottery
    E I Adio, I don't think so


    Keith Allen wrote the lyrics for World in Motion, Vindaloo & England's Irie. Lesson there, surely....

    Yeah Vindaloo is quite good

    "Me and me mum and me dad and me gran and a bucket of vindaloo. Me and me mum and me dad and me gran we're off to Waterloo..."

    World in motion is good but the 3 lions 98 song is more specific to football IMO than the "Loves got the world in motion..." bit of the song. Come to think of it though World In Motion has some quality bits too "We're singing for England (England!), arivadice it's one on one!"

    Interestingly, Australia has a reality TV programme on at the moment which is called "The Song For The Socceroos". A couple of the songs are quite good but in general they need to be more "anthemy".

    Anyway what's the title of this Embrace song? I'm a pretty big fan of Embrace actually so it can't be too bad.

    What do we think then now that it's looking like Rooney could miss out. I have doubts about Crouch starting. With Cole in the hole it enables Carrick to join the midfield in front of the back four, with Lampard and Gerrard getting forward. A.Cole and Neville will get forward when they can as usual, there's no way SGE will drop Becks so I've included him whether I like it or not.

    Teams and formations please, people.

    That looks a pretty good selection, although would have to make sure that the midfealders get forward or Owen could get isolated. Plus Gerrard stuck out on the left is not ideal. Then again Owen and Defoe together might not work so its a tricky one.

    Yeah it is tricky, Defoe has had trouble making the Spurs 11 this season, and SWP is having similar trouble down the King's Road. It's not ideal having Gerrard on the left no, but I'd rather have Lamps in the middle as he's more of a goal threat IMO, and SGE won't play Becks there. Cole is doing very well these days and can do the Rooney job I think just behind Michael.

    Anyway, if it was me that's how I'd go until Rooney is ready to come on/play 90 mins.

    yea it doesn't look bad, but just to be safe if Rooney doesn't make it, what about keeping Cole on the left since i have my doubt about Gerrard there, push Lampard up front since as you rightfully said he brings more of a goal-scoring treat and put Gerrard in between Beckham & Cole in the mid-field & Carrick to do the holding role.

    But the fact is i hope Rooney makes it, i think looking at the schedule we should be able to do without him up to the last group game vs Sweden so he can get some time to recover. So that when we get to the 2nd round (yes i'm 100% sure we will qualify), he will be back to his best hopefully.

    This is a very interesting but true point Terry Butcher made about Rooney's injury:

    ``it took Rooney to recover from his previous fractured metatarsal did not bode well.

    "When Rooney broke his metatarsal in Euro 2004, it took a long time for him to come back and reach the level of performance he likes to play at - and that Manchester United and England need," he told BBC Radio Five Live.

    "Also, from a Manchester United point of view, I wouldn't be happy if I was Sir Alex Ferguson, sending out Wayne Rooney to the World Cup in a bid to try and get him fit for England.

    "That could backfire and put him out into the new season for Manchester United, so there's lots of other things to think about."

    Why couldn't everyone be nice a fit going into the WC, urghhhh

    Robinson

    Neville Terry Carragher Cole


    Carrick
    Beckham Cole
    Lampard


    Gerrard
    Owen

    If you're gonna push one of the midfielders up, it should be Gerrard, he has played there plenty of times for Liverpool. Certainly, the last thing anyone wants though is a half-fit Michael Owen partnered by a half-useless Peter Crouch. This World Cup is positively going up in smoke.

    Oh and one last point, to hell with Man U, Rooney on one leg is better than Peter Crouch, or Defoe, Bent, Ashton, Matt Le Tissier, whoever, hence why if he doesn't play I think Gerrard is the only player talented enough to try and fill his boots.
