    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
    Given Sven's tactics and mindset I wouldn't be too surprised to see Richardson there ahead of Bent.

    Isn't Pennant right-sided?

    If Campbell isn't fit and one of Bridge or Cole isn't fit, I'd take him.

    It was a terrible injury - ten years ago, it would have been a career-finisher. You may not see him play for a year or more.

    Yup. Sven won't take a specialist reserve left-back and a specialist reserve right-back. He'll take King and Campbell as backup centre-halves, and he'll take Carragher as backup for all the defensive positions, plus either Bridge(/Konchesky) or Young.

    Id like to see Scot Parker go, unfortunatly for him England are very strong in that are but he is having a relly good season and id say he is just as good as Carrick and Jenas

    personally i would say he is playing as well now as he was then, he just hasnt been in the headlines so much recently and has been outshone by gerrard and lampard and to a lesser extent carrick, i would say he would still be very much in the mind of the next england manager whoever that may be, he has an international future yet.

    yeah I agree... but Rooney and Owen are still very young, so it may take an injury for him to get a real first team slot.

    Another op for Owen



    From the beeb's website:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/foot...ed/4843294.stm

    Tits. Clearly the rehab hasn't gone all that well if they've had to open it up again.

    Too right. Aside from Rooney (and possibly Robinson) he's the player we'd miss most, IMHO.

    Well i would put Lampard up there as well, but yes we desparetly need Owen and Rooney upfront, Rooney is obviously central to the entire side but Owen is a player who has big tournament expierence and i am sure he will get goals

    Don't get me wrong, Lampard is absolutely world class & (next to Rooney and possibly Terry) an English player I'd have in any world XI, but we have players who're closer to him in terms of ability (Stevie G, Jenas) who could perform a similar role, albeit probably not so well.

    I just meant that after Owen (and indeed Robinson) there's a bigger drop of in terms of quality of replacement. For Owen it's a guy who T*ttenham are trying to offload (if today's papers are to be believed) & for Robinson it's dear old "Calamity" at Citeh.
