Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

Don't have too much interest in Euro qualifying at the moment, but we've got some friendlies this week. The U.S. take on Poland. It will be Schalke's Jermaine Jones's first appearance for the U.S. A lot of youngsters selected for the squad as well I think.

Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

really hope jack wilshere gets his chance for england in the upcoming international, he is a definite future england star. Very surprised to see Kevin Davies make the squad, dont think it is worth it bringing in a 33 year old, by the actual euros he would be 35, england need to be concentrating on younger players, perhaps it would have been worth bringing up a u-21 striker like sturridge or welbeck.

If he wanted to bring in a target man, he should have called up Andy Carroll. Carroll has a lot to learn, but in two years he will be a better player and if you call him up now, he gets to know how the England set up works before the European Championship.

Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

It's a baffling selection no doubt, goodbye to a steaming pile of talentless crap in Heskey only to select a player who is a very marginal improvement. And just another target man anyway. It's just how Capello wants his team to play sadly.


Oh and I don't like Wilshere's chance of starting with Capello's boy Gareth "Mediocre" Barry fit. And mediocre is being kind, he's a turd of a player, if only England had a fit Hargreaves to call upon. Carrick would also have been a better option.

Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

It's hard to pick Carrick because he's barely started for Man U this year. I can't remember the last time he started back to back games. He's not a bad player but you need players who are playing regularly. He's had his chances for England and never's set the world on fire.

I can't figure out why Capello's chosen SWP again, and he's one of five wingers. We don't need more than four and he doesn't play for City. That place could've gone to Scott Parker for example. I much prefer him to Tom Huddlestone, Gareth Barry & Carrick.

Edit: I hope Jagielka keeps his place too, and that Adam Johnson starts along with Darren Bent. It'd really piss me off if he was dropped after the solid performances he put in against Bulgaria & Switzerland. Terry's flaws got exposed at the World Cup and Rio's not 100% fit yet. I'd like to see Rio play ahead of Terry though.

Carrick would be great for England if he hadn't fallen off the face of the earth.

2006-2008 Carrick would be great for England.

This one I have my doubts about.

I just hope when Hargreaves returns he can be the same player, as he is exactly what the England midfield could use. A central midfielder who has technique, can tackle and has some pace.

Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

Did Ashley Young not get picked again? If so it's criminal he wasn't and SWP still is despite him doing fuck all an Money City.

Yeah Parker would've been a better go than Barry, but I don't rate him more than Carrick, who despite injury lately is still a damn good midfielder. It's no secret we play better when he's "on" which hopefully he will be when he gets a run of games behind him. I like that he's improved and all that but Fletcher to me is still not the answer in midfield. He's a terrific worker and an honest player, but he's not got that much natural ability to dictate play like Carrick can, combined with some good defensive work.
