    Can we all agree that being a football captain is one of the most overrated jobs in the world?

    As I said Parker has only been hyped recently. So you've had several seasons of hype-free football to form an opinion on him, knowing he's played for clubs like Newcastle and West Ham as well as anti-hype because a certain person on here has liked him for years.

    Im am not a massive fan but I can't see anyone better and at least he is mobile, would probably play him when Rooney is back as well.

    I'm not one for brand loyalty myself either. Is it hard for you to believe that I just rate him because I think he's a good player?

    I get a lift home with a few lads who put the drivetime talkshow on, Durham's a ****ing awesome professional troll, would cop an infraction on here if any mods tuned in, but actually they did a poll and 80% of the listeners wanted Gerrard as captain.

    Darren Gough talking football is one of the funnier things to do on the way home though. Although not as funny as the time he gave his thoughts on us not joining with the rest of Europe over the financial deal, "we used to rule the world and we will do again" was the crux of it

    Started the season well, but gone off the boil a bit recently. He does have good movement and a nice eye for goal. Think Bent/Rooney are our best front 2, Sturridge is doing well, and RoboCrouch should feel hard done by to be scrapped, always worth a punt for England.

    Don't bother challenging him boys ....

    Nice finish, but they gave him half of Wembley to run at us.

    EDIT
    And it's 2 while I was typing that.

    Really, the ITV boys didn't have a clue, did they. The difference in class was obvious to anyone with more than half a brain - little things like ball retention, passing, pace in the final 3rd, etc, etc. Granted I didn't think we'd be dead & burried within 15 minutes of the restart, but we're so far off the pace nowadays that it's embarrassing.

    Quality finish.

    Saying that, it looked exactly like a pair of centre backs who'd never played together before.

    That looks hideously painful and blood-covered. Huntelaar has eaten half the pitch.

    Jacobs and Hawksbee used to be funny, bored now of it though, and Jacobs has just become a caricature of himself, like so many in broadcasting nowadays, hype again, I guess
