Looks like schweinsteiger may well be fit which is bad news for England.

Tbh he's never really impressed me. At least not to the extent that he is talked up.

Ozul's the one I'm worried about picking our defence apart.

Schweinstiger works very very hard. Without him england would have found it easy to boss the midfield.

anyway...

Deutschland, Deutschland über alles

Well.

Pretty much summed up everything we've been saying for weeks.

I've disagreed with pretty much all of Capello's decisions in the last month or so, and that didn't change today. So I am definetly placing the vast majority of the blame on the manager.

I don't agree with the notions that A) the players aren't good enough, and B) that they don't 'care' about playing for England.

Of course they are good enough. Just look at their performances in the Premiership and in Europe.

Anyway we've covered all this ground before, time to move on. (Allardyce for England manager :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: )

PS. You were 100% right about Schweinsteiger, he was awesome today.

Englands team yesterday and their ages give or take six months. With the exception of Rooney and Milner it would look like a lot of the team that started will be past their best. Who can we look forward to replacing them.

David James aged 40
Glen Johnson aged 26
Ashley Cole aged 30
John Terry aged 30
Matt Upson aged 31
Steven Gerrard aged 30
Frank Lampard aged 32
Gareth Barry aged 29
James Milner aged 24
Wayne Rooney 25
Jermain Defoe 28

I know some might say Glen Johnson just never was any good, but considering he'll be 30 at the next world cup....

Any way i've just been told that David Blaine is worried that his record of doing bugger all in the box for 42 days as been broken by Wayne Rooney. :D
