Carrick has been terrible. But then again Huddlestone or Parker.......oh dear

To go...

Huddlestone
Bent
Wright Phillips
King
Carrick
Johnson
Barry

I would love for Scott Parker to go to the finals as I think he is just what we need in the middle of the park.
If he hadn't have made the move to Chelsea in the first place, i think he would have had a much better career and been a regular in one of the top teams.

Here's hoping Gareth Barry is fit, and that Joe Cole makes it into the squad.

No need to bring Bent as he does not offer anything that any of the other four do.

Baines, Dawson, Warnock, Huddlestone, Wright-Phillips, and Bent not to go, if Barry fit he goes if not Parker goes.

I hope Barry fails to make it, he is half the player he was since taking the money and running to City to "win things" ! Joe Cole MUST be on the plane

Capello needs to take both Joe Cole and Adam Johnson on the left. Leave out Bent and Heskey and include Walcott as an out-and-out striker.

Hopefully capello will take all 5 strikers

I'll be gutted if Joe Cole doesn't get on the plane to South Africa. He brings an element of trickery to the table that the likes of SWP, Lennon and Theo don't and showed against Japan that he's also a valid option to play 'in the hole'!

My squad is: Green, James, Hart, Cole, Johnson, Ferdinand, Terry, Carragher, Baines, King, Barry (if fit) Lampard, Gerard, Lennon, Rooney, Crouch, Carrick, Milner, Walcott, Cole, Heskey, Defoe, Bent, Huddlestone (for Barry if not fit)

We shouldn't be taking Barry. I know we need him. But if we are testing his injury today, just 11 days before the first game, he isn't going to be fit. He hasn't played for over a month.
We should have learned by now that we shouldn't take unfit/injuried players to a world cup. We have done it so many times before, to realise it doesn't work. Keegan (1982), Robson (1986), Beckham (2002) and Rooney (2006) spring to mind.

Ledley King as a holding midfielder?
Or is his knee too dodgy for that now.

i hope Carrick is in the 23 man squad

_______________________________________________

I really hope he isn't. He had a poor season for us, and showed no signs of bucking that trend when we played Mexico. England's biggest problem always seems to be giving the ball away too often, and he's doing that for fun at the moment.

I think the seven to be cut will be:

Warnock
Upson
Dawson
SWP
Carrick
Parker
Heskey

Baines was terrible against Mexico so I would only be a little surprise if he missed out to Warnock, however Milner can also be cover in that area so he may go and Milner can be used in case of serious left-back meltdown

Fingers crossed Barry is passed fit. I don't want Gerrard to be wasted playing in a holding role just to give lampard a licence to take random shots all game.

if joe cole isn't in the team then we have no chance of winning the cup. He is easily our second best player behind rooney.this was proved against Japan. Oh and we should chuck Upson.

Second most ridiculous live text after the one for Thierry Henry's handball v Ireland.I love it though!

Joe Cole should go to SA, although i feel that Rio shouldn't be capt and doesn't deserve his place on the plane! King (as long as fit is far better, even though Shawcross should have been given a chance. Hope he takes the young a johnson could be the surprise player of the tournament!!
