german done

next is the math resit on thursday

this post however, is on football
this concerns the England World Cup squad

Provisional squad:
Robinson (Tottenham), James (Manchester City), Green (Norwich); G Neville (Manchester United), Ferdinand (Manchester United), Terry (Chelsea), Cole (Arsenal), Campbell (Arsenal), Carragher (Liverpool), Bridge (Chelsea), Beckham (Real Madrid), Carrick (Tottenham), Lampard (Chelsea), Gerrard (Liverpool), Hargreaves (Bayern Munich), Jenas (Tottenham), Downing (Middlesbrough), J Cole (Chelsea), Lennon (Tottenham), Rooney (Manchester United), Owen (Newcastle), Crouch (Liverpool), Walcott (Arsenal).

Carson (Liverpool), Young (Charlton), Reo-Coker (West Ham), Defoe (Tottenham), Johnson (Crystal Palace).

OK GK and defender wise, there really isnt any debate. sven has 4 top class central defenders there (plus sol cambell).
midfield it was pretty much as expected, bar Lennon (rather than Wright-Phillips)
up front there are ONLY 4 strikers, with 2 injured!?

lets break down the dubious decisions

1) sol cambell. my thoughts here are that we actually dont need 5 central defenders. its a mute point, but i dont think we need 5. get rid of cambell and bring in luke young so that we have cover at rightback, and carragher is 'floating'

2)owen hargreaves. wtf. why does he EVER get to play. i have never seen anything from him period. he's the 'fittest' english player... but only ever appears as a sub! who need fitness if they only play 20 mins. what a waste. should have had wright-phillips. not im not gonna say SWP necessarily is good enough to hold down a spot just yet, but he CAN bring something completely different to the squad, so should have been there as a wildcard option.
also i heard hargreaves can use both feet. yeh? well i do too. its called walking....

3) Lennon. i cant really comment much here. i havent followed the premiership too closely here but from what i understand he does get regular game time and is a good prospect thats already performing.

4)rooney. i would have him in too. any chance that he can play gives england a chance to actually beat someone.

5)owen. well i hear he's gonna be fit, so i guess he's in

6) peter crouch. well *shrugs*. i guess we want the midfielders to score.

7)bent. well again the top scoring english striker in the premiership DOESNT get a look in *shrugs*

8)defoe. lol. he's basically michael owen just not as good.

9 walcott. erm... this guy hasnt even PLAYED for arsenal yet. 17yrs old, is touted as an amazing prospect, but can he do anything this summer? probably not
this imo is actually a joke from sven that no one has got. the point is HE'S LOSING HIS JOB this summer. its been in the news for crying out loud. they took bets on who's getting his job.
what do most people do when they're losing their job? they mess around. there aint no two ways about it. sven looked at his core squad, realised that if he lost any of them he's up shitscreak anyway, and none of the 'b' players had any game anyway. so why not take a chance ona random long shoot. better than going for a retard who was 100% not gonna perform anyway.

with no rooney, england aren't gonna win anyway, unless walcott turns out to be some uberbeast on the field. thus i would also pick walcott over the rest of the trash.
