    The former get on my **** immensely but H&J are good for laugh. James Whale's reactionary and sensationalists rants at night can also be rather amusing.

    Hawksbee and Jacobs are brilliant.

    Guardian's prob best of bad bunch. Andy Wilson's column is usually fairly good value.

    You get the feelin a lot of broadsheets cover League holding their noses. Sad really.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    Wow, good to see that the Labour voter can be swayed so easily. Shows a real commitment to the cause. I guess it should carry a warning "Non-Tories stay away as your fragile minds can be corrupted"-

    Interesting to see the expected side for Sunday.

    When I saw Hargreaves as right back, I assumed Rio won't play, so Carragher will move inside.

    Carrick, Lampard and Gerrard looks good though IMO...

    I heard Carragher was being dropped in favour of Hargreaves, and that Rio was expected to play. Interesting.

    That's interesting.

    How did Liam rate his own countries effort's at the World Cup?

    I thought they did pretty well, I mean I would have considered their 0-0 result with Sweden as likely as Lance Armstrong being best friends with WADA chief Richard (****) Pound) and I had half thought England might score a few against them as well.

    But alas I was wrong and am happy to say so.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    well Carragher deserves to be dropped after his Sweden performance, would have preferred Sven to move Beckham to right back (let's face it he's nearly as much experience as Hargreaves playing there) and bring Lennon in, seeing as he won't drop Beckham.

    He played there in the B international after which he attributed a poor performance to "never playing there"

    Not really fair on Hargreaves to play him there, really. If he's plop it gives more ammunition to the knee-jerk Hargreaves is crap brigade. No coincidence that when he played in the position he occupies for Bryan he looked like an international class defensive midfielder.

    Apparently

    Robinson

    Hargreaves
    Ferdinand (Campbell)
    Terry
    Cole

    Beckham
    Lampard
    Carrick
    Cole

    Gerrard

    Rooney

    Would prefer Carragher to Campbell as cover for Rio, but I guess we have to thank Neville's injury for Carrick getting the call.
