    I've felt the need to make this thread now based on how important this game is (and to beat Heroes to it!) Simply put, W.I.N. no excuses, no bad referee calls, just go out play the best XI and get a fookin result. There has been a nice debate on who should start and what sort of formation we should play.

    Saw Capello has made the first change in his tactics, naming the squad earlier than he does which I hope is at least 24 hours before the game. Get these boys mentally prepared and we'll see the difference in their performance. I'd personally play this XI:

    -------------------JAMES----------------------

    JOHNSON-------DAWSON----------TERRY-----------A.COLE

    AZZA-----------------BARRY-------------------------J.COLE

    ----------------------GERRARD-----------------------

    -------------CROUCH-------------ROONEY


    LETS AV' THE SLAGS!

    Yeah i'd say that's about the best squad we can put out seeing as a change IS needed. Personal preference would see lampard in there in place of either Barry or Gerrard.

    I'm off to London to see The Black Keys on Wednesday...
    The Black Keys > Football, I'm afraid.

    I takes 5 hours to get up there from Plymouth, so I'm gonna get up there early so I can find a bar to watch the game in. I don't really want to be sat on a coach while that beast's going on.

    Rooney has do nothing in the World Cup, or in the five matches preceeding it, to warrent his start in the England team.

    I'd start with Crouch & Defoe up front.

    TUNE.

    Yeah, its gonna be awesome. I've gotta say, if it was any other band I'd probably have sold the ticket. I've never seen them live though, so theres no way I'm missing it. Got to travel 250 miles for the gig though.

    Rooney needs to be dropped, he has done nothing recently for England and what he said last week was an insult to all the England fans who werent annoyed enough that their team played bad, but then had to enjoy shrek telling them they were bad supports.

    As for Upson starting ahead of Dawson well Capello is a mug

    lads just coming through on rte{irish tv} it showed an interview with capello today,and he says terry has made a big mistake with the interview.they then asked him if he has a french style revoltion on his hands and he said no it was just one player speaking out and that none of the other players said fook all.they are speculating that he will drop terry for the game now.

    Shut up, John Terry. How can somebody be so stupid to critizise the coach in front of the press?! To cause trouble before such an important game is so dumb.

    i really think capello should play rooney just behind defoe and crouchy... they play club level together with us so they know how each other works! you can't leave out rooney... and lennon would be able to perform above his best with them two as the top men...

    back for has already been chosen... same as in goal but that leaves the mid... i would have lennon RM Gerrard LM and Barry DM with rooney being AM

    we need to win this game... and i can't see slovenia comming at us too hard

    Are we now the "All-Reds"?! :D

    I think we're gonna start like that:
    James - Johnson, Upson, Terry, A. Cole - Gerrard, Barry, Lennon, Lampard, J. Cole - Rooney

    I don't think Lennon is starting I think Joe Cole is... and upfront is Defoe, Rooney I'm pretty sure... although I don't understand why they are dropping Lennon!!!

    Slovenia 1-0 Algeria
    England 0-0 Algeria
    Slovenia 2-2 USA
    England 1-1 USA

    England 2-1 Slovenia
    Lampard scored from penalty when Rooney dived so it should be 1-1.

    So Slovenia is first in group because we scored against Algeria unlike some ''great'' team.

    Edit- oh you are from Russia that explains alot. I think that russia is where you should be , not at the world cup
