      Couldn't give a toss apart from Stevie G keeping fit.

      How could anyone support a team with Neville, Rooney, Terry and Lampard in it?

      I am not English and have a lot of time for international football and have a soft spot for many countries but to clap on Rooney..would make me sick.

      There's support at Club level and support at International level.

      I dislike Rooney, but while he plays for my country I'll hope that he puts in 100%.

      Milner? Where would he play though.

      I'm actually struggling to think of another CM who could be called up to play in Barry's position, unless Capello is thinking of putting Lampard/Gerrard/Beckham there.

      I think you've answered you're own question there mate, you're not English.

      Put it this way, if you were from the Ivory Coast are you saying you wouldn't support your national team because Drogba plays for them?

      You've got to try and see past club football at International level. The players can do it, so the fans certainly should be able to do it.

      Just a shame half of England's fans are complete and utter wankers.

      Couldn't create an atmosphere if they f**king tried, the burberry-wearing f**king quilts.

      "I'm Ingurlund til I die" - I f**king hate that song, pure championship-level type of song that.

      And Dadorious didn't the Croat's fans take the piss out of England's support when they beat them at Wembley in the euro qualifiers.

      Agree with that 110%. A lot of them are lower league fans and if theres any top flight fans I think it's usually the rent boys.

      I am not a supporter of England as a team during International meetings, I just cheer on Gerrard though! [and Owen too]  :) Well i think England  has not got a good squad..Do you guys think English teams playing in Premier League and all divisions  should encourage and bring in more English players compared to the number of  foreign players playing in England; just to have more experienced, well-trained and a full fit squad of caliber and thus increase on their competencies and chances of winning a world cup?..My fav international team is Brazil.. :soccer_h4h:

      Easier said than done really. Nowadays clubs would rather buy a foreign player who they think would be decent rather than giving their youth a go. Maybe England as a nation just isn't producing enough world class players though, difficult one to answer really.

      I do think England has a good squad though, it's more choosing who to play and where to play them because there are a lot of players in the squad that are of similar ability.

      ^^ yeah, good point you mentioned there about saying "its more choosing who to play.."
      Still I think it would have done real good and benefit to the England National Team together in more youth and allow them to play high level games..to assure the future of this team.  :)

      Won't be long before the game. My team prediction is similar to Reslivo's but with Beckham being a straight replacement for Barry and Rooney starting in the middle, Gerrard on the right. Rooney and Gerrard will interchange throughout the game which has worked so well previously.
       
      I think Wright-Phillips will probably replace Beckham within the second half.

      Code: [Select]
      Green
      Neville - Terry - Upson - Cole
      Beckham - Lampard
      Walcott - Rooney - Gerrard
      Heskey

      Score Prediction: England - 5
                                Andorra - 0

      Frustrating to watch and sleep inducing England maybe at times but i will support them because i'm English.

      Fabio Capello is the best manager this side has had in well over 20 years, he's sorted us out no end after the f**king shambles that was Eriksson and then McLaren.

      A 100% record in the qualifiers is not to be sniffed at, whilst we may not be a nailed on certainty to win the World Cup we have as much chance as everyone else so why not? We certainly have the players to do it, the only real position i'm worried about along with everyone else it seems is the GK.

      So what if we have hatred of Chelski and ManUre, i for one would be very proud to see our Stevie parade the World Cup around the stadium after the final and whether it's in the hands of Terry, Cole, Rooney, Barry, Beckham or whoever it doesn't matter.

      They won it for England and thats what would count for me.

      I am English but I agree entirely. If you spend your life absolutely loathing these people and everything they stand for how on earth can you support them in an England shirt.

      It shows just what a professional Stevie is. Not only should he be Capt but he should also be in central midfield and yet he doesn't make a sound and gets on with it.

      Because those, Liverpool, fans who follow England are big enough to put club football to one and wish the best for their country. The same way Real Madrid fans will probably applaud life long Athletico Madrid fan Fernando Torres when he pulls on the Spanish shirt.

      The fans I don't understand are the ones who slag England off but then w*nk over the fact Gerrard has played well. Personally I used to follow England but since Capello questioning if or not Stevie was injured my support for the national side disappeared and I couldn't care less how any player gets on for the Three Lions. Obviously I don't want Gerrard coming back injured from England duty but in the same breath I'm not overly fussed if he scores a hattrick or misses six sitters.

      I see all the ones who didn't bother turning up because of the tube strike are all the ones that normally boo the other team's national anthem. Strange eh? ;)
