    England National team

    Thread for England National team discussion..

    Will start with Friendly against Netherlands.

    Fabio Capello has named his squad to face Holland at Wembley.

    Fabio Capello has named a squad of 25 players to face Holland at Wembley on Wednesday.

    There are eleven players who could potentially be involved in The FA Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday, with six players from FA Cup winners Manchester City and five from Premer League Champions United.

    Danny Welbeck returns after making his debut against Ghana in March, while Micah Richards comes into the squad in the absence of Glen Johnson. Ashley Young, who scored on England's last outing, a 2-2 draw with Switzerland, has since joined United to increase their numbers within the England squad.

    Squad in full;

    Robert Green, Joe Hart, David Stockdale

    Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, Phil Jagielka, Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards, John Terry, Kyle Walker

    Gareth Barry,Michael Carrick, Stewart Downing, Adam Johnson, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Scott Parker, Jack Wilshere, Ashley Young

    Andy Carroll, Peter Crouch, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck
    Wishere, Carrick, Lampard have pulled out, Cleverley has been called up as replacement.

    p.s. Scanned first 2 pages, didn't find thread for England NT.. Didn't know where to post updates.. If the thread is not needed, Mods plz delete it.....

    I follow them but not like I debate with anyone just to defend them.

    Scholes made excellent point that players just play for personal glory and not as a team. That was spot on about the team.

    Every manager made a blunder trying to play Lampard and Gerrard together when it didn't work and forced Best CM england had since Bobby to wings.

    But this current crop are good.Hard working and play as a team.. So bit excited to see how this team plays..

    so much hot air out of their supporters and media....and 0 productivity. i guess my hate for them stems from the fact that they think that they are better then everyone else...yet continually fall on the big stage.

    Game against Netherland is called off.. There goes my hope of watching Cleverley play for England.. Next Lampard, Gerrard will be available and Capello will start them in the middle..

    Spot on. Absolutely spot on.

    But, I hate England even more

    A. Because i live in the mutherfucking uk, so I, like all of my fellow scotsman have to put up with all that english media hype bullshit 24/7, despite the fact that none of us Scots give a flying fuck. (Although it is quite funny to watch them fail all the time).

    B. I am Scottish, so I passionately hate every thing about England anyway.

    It is very funny how the English define the French like describing themselves that they only win world cup in their backyards. And, the English is even worse because they won world cup in their backyards with a fake goal.

    So, the moral of the map is: the moral victor of every world cup is to go home as early as possible to make media hypes because only with media hypes they can be the 'self-claimed' best league in the world.

    You have not won a WC since 1966.
    You have not won a WC away from your borders
    You have only advanced past the quarterfinals of the WC TWICE
    One time you won, the 2nd time you finished 4th
    Your captain is a douche bag

    YOU ARE NOT THE BEST IN THE WORLD, YOU ARE NOT EVEN TOP 5 ALL TIME

    okay, rant over. I hate these guys.

    Cleverly & Smalling are two pretty promising players for England...I'm not as impressed by Jones

    As for hating England, I don't but they are incredibly overhyped - always...The only silver lining to Qatar hijacking the WC is not having to endure the English going on & on about their 'chances' for the next several years...It would've been impossible to take

    I think that is because Jones is too young, 19 only, the other two 22 (smalling almost 22). 3 years for young player is long, long time. He has shown that he has potential, great leadership is in him, you can clearly see it. If he develops like he is supposed to, world class CB he will become. With smalling as partner for the CB position, WOW.

    Scott Parker? I really don't get this. He's a good player for West Ham, puthim in any bottom half EPL team and he will shine. So why the fuck do Spurs go after him?! Palacios, Huddlestone are far better. Now I'm being told to believe he's an international footballer?

    Parker, Stockdale, and maybe Jagielka (although he is decent player) are not meant to be there. For me, neither is carroll, but 40 mil transfer, and there you are

    Not for me tbh. Johnson is much smarter, better technician. Well, is better in pretty much every aspect of the game, bar his speed.

    Jones has not put a foot wrong till now. He is so composed and very good on ball. No real weakness either like Smalling and also 3 years younger than him. Can see why all ManUtd supporters rate Jones so highly.

    Adam Johnson is a good player, he needs to leave City or play regularly. Oh they have Downing too who is good as RW.

    Jags >>>>>> Lescott and Cahill..

    Parker has done well for England everytime he has played for England. I dont think they have any good ball winning midfielder than Parker.

    Also Parker >>> Barry.
