England's Euro 2012 hopefuls: Who Fabio Capello can't ignore ahead of the qualifying campaign | Mail Online
Agree with all being involved except Cahill.
This says they started 12 games together that season. His soccernet profile has Torres being subbed in 4 EPL games so, even if we were to say Gerrard was present in those matches it is 12 starts and 4 sub appearances in 38 games.
From memory, they didn't really play a whole lot together. When Torres was injured Gerrard was fine and when Gerrard was injured Torres was fine.
It may sound like an excuse but if we had Torres for more games I am fairly sure we could have made up the difference and won the title.

Question for the English: how do you think it would go down if Capello picked Arteta?
I reckon the media is already looking for the jugular and it would just be one more thing to attack him with.
If Capello can convince Scholes back too...Arteta and Scholes swapping passes in midfield...that would be a sight.

Decent in the air, nice finisher (took all 3 well against villa, the 2nd being a lovely strike.... first one was a nice instinctive finish n all), plus being a lefty will give us balance up front. Worth seeing if he and Rooney can form an effective partnership, as we know Fabio likes to ask players out of retirement, and **** if we want him to turn Emile's head..... (that and the small matter of Crouch being a bit ****)

Arteta being picked for England would cause a massive stir not only in the media but the other Home Nations and FIFA. The only reason England, Scotland, Wales and NI have separate teams is the Gentleman's Agreement which refers to a section/clause in FIFA's Statutes. Picking Arteta= can of worms which leads to a GB team.

There's fairly concrete rules regarding British nationals being eligible for the Home Nations.
ATS Rooney/Zamora/Defoe/Caroll should be the strikers picked for the first EURO qualifiers. (Owen & outside chance)
Yep thats my regular morning prayer that this occurs. Arteta already plays for ENG for me in FIFA 10 & Pro Evolution soccer.Originally Posted by Ikki
No point in recalling Scholes, would have literally no long term benefits whatsoever.
