    this would be the perfect englad WC squad IMO once everyone is fit:

    Robinson
    James
    Kirkland

    Neville
    Campbell
    Terry
    A Cole
    Ferdinand
    King
    Carragher
    Bridge

    Beckham
    Gerrard
    Lampard
    J Cole
    Carrick
    Parker
    Downing
    Dyer

    Owen
    Rooney
    Defoe
    Crouch

    But with some exceptions in midfield with players like SWP, Jenas, Richardson & Smith some of the blokes i have in midfield might not go.

    no when i say exceptions i mean to Sven Richardson & co might go instead of Parker or Dyer. But yea even Nolan & Pennant are better options than them.

    How long will Smith be injured, anyway? Sven can't pick a cripple.

    hopefully until after the squad is picked, you know what would be great if all the jokers like Jenas, Richardson etc suddenly get injured & Sven has to pick guys like Parker etc

    Why should Parker get picked? When was his last international?

    I think he's played once.

    He's been playing fairly well for Newcastle, but without the exposure there's no way people can say he should be in the World Cup squad.

    Alan Smith has no hope of going to the World Cup. He could be out for a year!


    AFAIC, I'd be very surprised if this isn't the squad:

    Robinson
    James
    Kirkland/Green if Kirkland's injured, which he probably will be.

    G Neville
    Ferdinand
    Terry
    A Cole
    Campbell
    King
    Carragher
    Bridge/Young if he's not fit

    Beckham
    Gerrard
    Lampard
    J Cole
    SWP
    Carrick
    Jenas

    Rooney
    Owen
    Crouch
    Bent
    Defoe

    Maybe Pennant might have a chance? He'd link up well with Ashley Cole. Could have Pennant on the left midfield with Cole behind him

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    yes but its stupid that Sven has keeps ignoring him, don't know if he will be missed at the WC but people like him should be in the mix when people like Richardson & Jenas get picked, hopefully our next coach realises his ability and picks him..

    the fact that he has lost that label means that his inclusion is now not neccesary, not any more than a sub anyway.

    if he keeps his form up and bridges injury doesnt heal in time, he could make a reasonable reserve for cole i would have thought, stranger things have happened, but i would say young is a more likely option personally.
