    I think this will be the World Injury Cup - the team with the least star players injured will win.

    To be fair Ferdinand and Terry have been injured and off form all season so it's not as big a miss as the likes of other nations have had with their captains getting injured: Drogba, Ballack, Mikel, Essien. etc. Shame he's out but that's what you get for leaving the mighty Lids for that grotty team in Manchester, would like to see Ledley King starting alongside Terry now to give some class to proceedings.

    We're getting knocked out well before the final anyway, so it's irrelevant.

    Got the lotto numbers for tonight while you're at it?

    King and Terry would be the best option but probably the slowest pairing at the whole tournament...

    Hardly a predition of seismic levels that we won't get in touching distance of victory, is it? We're just not as good as most think we are, plain and simple.

    We don't have any pace at centre-half though, Dawson and Upson are equally lumbering and Carragher is even slower. Might as well go with the classy player (King for Ferdinand) alongside the solid hoofer (Terry/Dawson/Carragher/Upson) as it gives greater balance. Wish we had the quality at centre back that Spain boast, Pique and Puyol are the best pairing in the world and most the replacements (Albiol, Juanito, even Ramos if moved inside) would challenge any other national pairing in the world other than Brazil.

    Both know how to deal with pace. King isn't slow either and Terry wouldn't be where he is today if he didn't know how to deal with pace. Good partnership, providing King stays fit.

    its true isnt it, sometimes some of the best pure defending is as good to watch as someone banging in a 30yard volley or something

    You don't need pace if your partner has it, which doesn't apply here.

    Terry's better at dealing with pace then Alex (positioning etc), and is probably quicker... the partnership led us to winning the double.

    The only problem is when your leave the back two exposed.
