Downing never does anything in an England shirt, but because he's high up the pitch he at least doesn't cost us goals and games. Which is what Johnson and Barry do. God, imagine if Rafa had got his way, Liverpool would have had all 3 of those players. You really dodged a bullet as Barry showed at the Allianz.
Gotta love how Capello plays Cahill over Jones. All the top clubs went for Jones and now he's at Man Utd, wheres Cahill is at Bolton and even a desperate Arsenal didn't buy him. (I'm aware they're both playing tonight, but Cahill stated at CB last game, and i'd rather see Jones at CB and Walker at RB).

Another mindfuck by Capello is the fact he's started Bent over Welbeck. Why? Welbeck has been in-form and has scored more goals than Bent this season thus far. Plus, you know, Rooney and Welbeck always train together and have shown they can link up well.
There was a passage of play where their left winger was just toying with Jones, went round him 3 or 4 times, none of our players could get the ball, Cahill finally won it in our penalty box, and poked it to Barry who proceeded to pass it straight back to an unmarked Montenegro player, allowing them to attack again.
