    Probably do in about 5 months time, yeah.

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Portugal - no chance.

    You would be wrong.

    According to an Italian fan who is a friend of mine (he just has to support Roma :!( ) that Cudicini has already been given a cap by Italy.

    Sorry, but your Italian friend is the wrong one.

    I believe he's once made a training squad, but he's definitely never played.

    As far as a non-playing sub?

    Anyway this would be my England side (playing 4-4-2)

    Robinson

    G.Neville-Campbell-Terry-Bridge/Johnson

    Beckham-Scholes-Lampard-J.Cole

    Owen-Smith/Beattie

    (Rooney can come on as an impact player)

    Are you being serious? Glen Johnson was awful against Denmark at his prefered right back let alone left back. Don't think Wayne Bridge has done enough to push Cole out yet.

    No Stephen Gerard, potentially the best midfielder in the world and possibly our most crucial midfielder, if hes fit hes plays absolutely no doubt that.

    I'd play Heskey ahead of Smith and Beattie. His biggest critics never seem to be the people who watch him week in week out and he was awesome last night.

    I dont realy rate Ashley Cole. Then again probably most of Arsenal's defence is that. He got shown up against Inter at Highbury when Inter won 3-0.

    Arsenal forgot what defence meant.

    Difference being that Inter had a different manager in charge. Hector Cuper is a CL specialist while Zac is a Serie A specialist.

    One of the pitfalls in sacking Cuper, but under Zac, Inter has won 7, lost, drew 1 in the Serie A. Including a 3-1 over Juve. :saint:

    That's one of the worst excuses I have ever heard.

    Well

    a) You havent given Cuper's Seria A record and

    b) If a club is in the Champions League why pick someone who cant manage CL. also

    c) It is the same squad of players for CL and Seria A
    Or something.

    Well I'm not not on the Inter board.

    Hector Cuper took Inter close to winning the Scudetto last season if it werent for Mutu's goal :!( :!(

    When Cuper got fired Inter were in about 10th spot.

    I see it quite clear England will win, with their new found first eleven, made entirely of Exeter players...
