Ok, so i'm a few weeks away from Euro 2012, and i've been drawn with Netherlands, Portugal and Scotland, so i'll have to get a result against either Netherlands or Portugal if I want to advance. The group of death is Germany, France, Italy and Poland. Oh, i've also been offered the Southampton job, and i'm not sure if I should take it. Thoughts? They'll be in the Championship but they have some good players (Clyne, Rodriguez, Lallana) and a transfer budget they offered me is 20,000,000. Liverpool finished 17th with 40 points which I quite enjoyed too.
and Arsenal won the Treble and lost the Champions League final to PSG.
I'm unbeaten is the qualifiers and friendlies (opponents include Spain, Netherlands, Argentina, Bulgaria, Wales, Montenegro). Here is my 30-man preliminary squad (Rooney is out with a broken leg):
Joe Hart (Manchester City), John Ruddy (Norwich City), Scott Carson (Bursaspor)
Kyle Walker (Tottenham), Micah Richards (Manchester City), John Terry (Chelsea), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Ryan Shawcross (Stoke City), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Leighton Baines (Everton)
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (FC Loreint), James Milner (Manchester City), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham), Adam Johnson (Manchester City), Stewart Downing (Liverpool), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Jack Rodwell (Everton), Tom Huddlestone (Tottenham), Adam Lallana (Southampton), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Scott Parker (Tottenham), Tom Cleverley (Manchester United)
Darren Bent (Aston Villa), Gabby Agbonlahor (Aston Villa), Jay Rodriguez (Southampton), Danny Welbeck (FC Twente), Theo Walcott (Arsenal)
Frank Lampard is out for 5 weeks, so he might not make the cut, unfortunately.
