There's plenty of debate on other boards about rumours that SWP will go to South Africa while Adam Johnson misses out on place in the squad, but I'd like to hear what City fans think.
Personally, I was a big SWP fan in the past but think he is past his best. Johnson on the other hand had a great half season for City and on form alone I'd have thought he'd have warranted a place in the final 23.
On the plus side, SWP's promotion should allow us get a decent price for him if we decide to sell him after the World Cup.
Another plus is that Johnson will be well rested this summer and rearing to go when the new season starts.
On balance though, I'd have loved to see Johnson play in the World Cup as I think he could have made a big impact.
It's England's loss, in my opinion.
