Capello...picks people on form.

So takes SWP who can't get in Man City's team, because of Johnson.
Carrick, who's been crap this season. Ahead of Parker (carried West Ham) and Huddlestone (helped Spurs reach CL for first time).
Heskey ahead of Bent. Even Defoe ahead of Bent, despite Bent scoring more.

I don't know what to say if Upson goes too....

I agree with the Walcott decision. Would of like to have seen Adam Johnson in there though.

I don't see a problem with calling the players individually rather than doing one presentation
Because then it ends up more like Britain's Got X Factor Idol and plays up to the news media, who are Loose Men.

We have enough gossip and pointless exaggeration of importance to do with England as it is.

Yeah, I don't know how I feel about that. I respect Capello for saying he'd pick people based on form, however I can understand why he'd go with Carrick over, say, Huddlestone or Parker.

I read at one point that Dawson would go instead of King, which I had been calling for weeks even though I'm quite an admirer of King these days. SWP should've always been in contention, I'm glad he's going ahead of Theo. Of course, this is all unconfirmed but whatever.

The fact that it is is part of the problem.

Still can't quite believe how SWP has got in ahead of both Walcott and Johnson.

I'd love it if England get to the semis with Heskey starting every game and not scoring a single goal. If that doesn't shut you morons up nothing will :coma:

Yeah. According to some guy on the Live Text:

"Rooney's last 10 England games with Heskey - 9 goals. Rooney's last 10 England games without Heskey - 2 goals."

"Rooney's last 10 England games with Heskey - 9 goals. Rooney's last 10 England games without Heskey - 2 goals."
I see that stat all the time, but it really doesn't mean very much. I haven't looked up who those 20 games were against, or what other factors meant that Rooney scored a lot more in some than the others, but I very much doubt that it was much to do with Emile

If it was, the stat would read something like "Emily Heskey 8 assists for Rooney in 10 games", which might actually be decent...as it is, people are basically using coincidence to justify his spot.

I mean it could well have rained on those 10 games Rooney scored in, and was dry in the 10 he didn't. Does that mean we should be praying for rain in SA?
