    Quite what it had to do with you, I'm not sure.
    "Countered"

    That would be calling me a racist then saying completely irrelevant like 'was it his fault Rooney got injured?' and deliberately avoiding the fact that England were 1-0 up against a team that couldn't at that time string 3 passes together and had a dodgy defense at the best of times. Any manager with a clue what they were doing would have sorted England out at half time at the latest and closed the game out comfortably - but because the vegetable is so inept the game ended up being a contest, regardless of the result at that point the vegetable had failed in his job.

    Ignore the fact that there's absolutely no English option who would be remotely good enough.

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

    I still maintain that Pearce is good enough to be an assistant - certainly better than McClaren if this season's performances are anything to go by - and this would allow him to be groomed as the next manager after whoever comes next.

    For me there's absolutely no English manager who deserves the job whatsoever.

    If Hiddink wants it we should bite his arm off to get him.

    Which is nonsense because we don't know until they're given the job. Just like there are many who looked at Sven's success when he's had millions upon millions to spend then he manages England and he's useless at best or more realistically a useless disgrace.

    Out of character there for you to ignore the facts in order to have good old rant about the non-Englishman...

    Precisely which Englsh managers have won anything in recent times? A big resounding nil.

    As for the useless disgrace comment, it just continues the race-driven misinformed drivel.

    On today's performance.. and well every time he plays...

    Wright-Phillips should be starting, as he is clearly good enough. It may take an injury for it to happen though.

    He shouldn't be near the squad.

    He's not a regular at Chelsea, whereas Joe Cole is, so how can he be ahead of Cole for England?

    Nope.

    I might just squeeze him in the squad (I think he terrifies defenders, and he certainly deserves to be ahead of Hargreaves in the picking-list), but there's no way he will start a game in preference to Cole or Beckham - throw in Lampard and Gerrard and that is one hell of a midfield (for England, anyway). Rooney just off Owen's shoulder....

    The biggest fights are going to be regarding who's going to take free kicks.

    I must confess his are the standard against which the others are measured - although Lampard produced an absolute corker again last night.
