    Pathetic, Terry has had a dire season.
    Ferdinand has been generally more solid and a good leader.
    Terry, I just ****ing despise the guy he's such a bellend, hard to fully get behind England with pricks like him representing us. :facepalm2:

    I'm glad Rio isn't going to the Euros. On form and leadership, he would deserve to go. But I hope this makes Rio realise that at his age and fitness, it's best to call it a day at international level and focus on his club. He's got no reason to feel ashamed about what's happened with England - he's been a great defender. But time to do the right thing at this time of his career, wind down and focus on being fit for his club. Terry's probably doing jumping jacks with this news.

    Yeah, this. New generation? What a joke, richards isn't going either but glen johnson is with phil jones as back up RB :facepalm2:

    Its not specific. At what point do you say that it wasn't from a cross? When that phase of play stops or when the ball has been touched again? Is it direct from crosses?

    Shocking stat, but I'd take it with a pinch of salt.
    yeah I guess, but we should not be top of the table for that.

    Yeah, it's hard to get fully behind England with Terry in there. Of course, I rate Rio, he's still a class defender but he does have fitness concerns and I doubt he would have played much of a part anyway. I wouldn't have had him as a starter (not because I don't rate him, just prefer settled defences) but he would have been a useful player to have around. I assume the talks with Terry and Hodgson didn't go so well...He must be gutted, for a player of his calibre he hasn't played in as many WCs/Euros as he should - injured just before the 2010 WC, didn't qualify for Euro 2008 and missed Euro 2004 due to the drug ban.

    His most memorable tournament moment is that 'goal' v denmark then, and the awful celebration that followed

    It just sickens me that someone (Terry ofc) who constantly ****s up on a daily basis is still allowed to go to the Euros. It's scandalous.

    Especially when he gets dominated by Liverpool's attack :facepalm2:

    Carrick is probably the closest thing we have to a creative midfield player, I'll just despair if he doesn't go as well.

    I hope Carrick and Welbeck go. The former because he has had a consistent season and the latter because I hope Roy will be brave enough to partner him with Wayne and because his link up play can be effective for England also.

    To be fair I don't really want Rio to go, don't want him messing his back up. I would like Carrick to go though, he deserves to get a little recognition.

    Same can be said about Chelsea. I'd probably be supporting them on Saturday if Terry wasn't allowed to pick up the trophy, the ****.

    Discussing Rio's snub on twitter, so I had to see about his game time this season - he has started every single game since the first leg against Bilbao.

    Yet 'fitness concerns' will be cited. England can get ****ed, frankly. Not only should his fitness be of no concern, quite simply he is the best defender currently available to England, and his form is better than those that will be selected. He certainly won't knee an opponent in the back like Lionheart did, he who put in one of the worst defensive performances only a few days ago against Liverpool, and allowed his team to concede four goals against a team that had only amassed 20 goals in their previous 18 home games.

    Their loss is almost certainly our gain, though.

    I'm guessing we must also be in 'advanced' talks with Hazard, or else I can't see any reason for all his secrecy about where he'll be playing next season.

    Hope we seal the deal quickly.

    I haven't seen him play much. Anybody got thoughts on Kagawa?
