Yea yea just putting it out there & yes i deserves its own thread. Once all are fit the best 23 IMO:
4. Terry (c)
8. A Cole
16. J Cole
* If King & Hargreaves dont make it. Replacements IMO should be Wes Brown & Darren Bent.
OTHER CLOSE SQUAD POSSIBILITIES:
- A Young
- Downing (dont rate him, but i know Capello will have an eye on him)
KING: Obviously given his injury record which prevents him from playing consectively makes his place the biggest issue. But my position on him is that well, given that he is not going to be 1st choice - but rather as back-up to Terry/Rio i'd say if come July if he is fit enough have him in the squad at least. Surely during the tournament at some point he will be fit, since lets be frank although Upson has been going well if an injury to Terry/Rio occurs presuming ENG go far (QF or SF), i'd want to see King coming in as replacement.
HARGREAVES: Presuming he returns soon & plays well is amust pick. I have him down as not only as a challenger to Barry to partner Lampard in mid-field, but also as back-up right-back to Johnson.
OWEN: Definately has to go, his hat-trick in champions league proves he is still got it. But i continue to fear Capello wont pick him & he will go for two short strikers (Rooney/Defoe) & two tall strikers (Heskey & Bent/Crouch).
AFAIC Heskey is the only target man that should go. If he cant play i see no reason why ENG can't be effective with two of Rooney & Defoe/Owen up front in the 4-4-2 formation.
