Venue: Cape Town

 

Date: Friday, 18 June 2010

 

Kick-off: 19:30 BST

Right, lets put down a marker, re-establish ourselves as one of the favourites and give this lot a tonking.

 

I'd go with:

Johnson - Dawson - Terry - A.Cole

 

-----------Lampard - Barry

 

---Lennon ---- Gerrard ---- J.Cole

 

-----------------Rooney

4-0 England - no regrets. No comments from bitter World War 2 losers.

Yeah I put some money on the same result @ 11-1

 

I think the average showing against the yanks and the need to win, will spur England on and get the best out of people like Rooney.

 

Hopefully Joe Cole will start and we wont have to make two subs before the 50th minute.

I think itll look like:

 

---------------Green

Johnson--Carragher--Terry--Cole

Lennon--Lampard--Barry---Gerrard

-----------Heskey--Rooney

 

If Barry isnt fit then Gerrard will be in the middle and Joe Cole will probably start on the left.

Apparently I'm going to bloody Twickenham to watch this one. I'm already dreading the experience.

 

Either way, if we don't win it convincingly (performance-wise, if not scoreline-wise), then the game's probably up. Suspect we'll give them a darned good thrashing though. Which makes watching it in a public school-feeding, rugger-supporting environment seem somehow infinitely more appropriate.

If they start with "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", do the right thing.

Tactical vomit on the nearest singer.

Capello has said Barry will play and he hasnt decided on the forward yet so I'm thinking

 

Green

 

Johnson Carragher Terry Cole

 

-----------Lampard Barry

 

Lennon-------Gerrard---------Cole

 

--------------Rooney

 

though andy townshend has been hearing things apparently since in that little video he said he'll play heskey or defoe (he didnt say that at all) and he also reckons gerrard will go on the left

 

I really hope not

 

Desailly agrees with me though, making a (quite strange) plea to capello to play Gerrard and Rooney together

If Barry's fit surely he'll play Gerrard off Rooney and drop Heskey? I think he might go for the same line up as you in that case.

Joe Cole is my big hope, it was clear that neither Milner or SWP worked on the left and I think his intelligence on the ball will help England retain possesion more and craft better chances because of that

Against these we should start the game like we're 2-0 down with five minutes left. If we do that we'll go in at least three goals up, fuck discipline, we'll piss it if they follow that ideology.

Lot of speculation that David James will be starting for England tonight

 

really disappointed that Hart has been overlooked if its the case the he does drop green

I'd pick James like, he's not had many bad games in the last few years. Hart's time will come.
