why is nathaniel clyne not in the squad? he's been a hell of a right back even since his crystal palace days. hopefully woy saw his screamer against the arsenal.
So what would you guys consider the biggest international rivalry in the british isles?

England- Rep Ireland?
Northern Ireland-Rep Ireland?
England -Scotland?
This question crossed my mind and I am really curious to know!
I think it would be either England-Scotland and/or Northern Ireland-Republic of Ireland
depends on who you ask. England has fierce (but respectful) rivalries with all of the home nations, due to our shared history.

England vs any of the other home nations is always eagerly anticipated in Rugby.

Not so much in football, though. In football it'll be the Irish "derby" or England v Scotland.
I must say I think last night's game showed why Rooney is better suited as a striker than a #10.

Keeping Sterling as the tip of the midfield diamond ensured that our progression from midfield was much more dynamic on the counter.

This 4-4-2 diamond is still a work in progress and there are areas to address (I'm not convinced Wilshere works well at the base of the diamond) but I like that we can have two strikers deployed further up the field.

------------Back Four
-------------Milner
---Henderson---Wilshere
-------------Sterling
---------Rooney---Welbeck

Sturridge/Walcott/Ox/Welbeck/Lambert/ and more can rotate in and out.

The core of this team can stick together for the next 5 years and still be in their mid-late twenties. I think now is definitely the time to be experimenting with this formation since we have a relatively easy qualification group. If we can iron out some of the wrinkles by 2016 we might just avoid embarrassing ourselves in the KO stages!
rooney's not a #10 for me, LVG might make it work but surely sterling on form looks more natural there. sturridge obviously is first-choice no matter how well welbeck does against switzerland, much as I love danny, sturridge just has more technique and finishing prowess
not bad! play to the strengths!
with AOC and sterling as direct, dribbling wingers, a pair of overlapping fullbacks, a handy midfield pair and two athletic centrebacks there is the beginnings of a half-decent team here.

but i am not convinced hogdson is the man to get the best out of a young, ballplaying side. this england side could be making triangles and creating overlaps in the channels but instead they look lost and frankly bored out there.
once walcott is fit, im telling you, sturridge, sterling and walcott makes a very fast direct front 3.

this would be the attacking force.

sterling----sturridge----walcott
-------------rooney-------------
LOL pretty much sum it up:

Paul Merson believes the England team should be built around Sterling

I believe the England team should be built without Hodgson

I can agree with that ^
roy hodgson is a clown.... wondering if he still has a dick coz he definitely got no shame at all still wanting to coach the team after a shambolic performance..... he's on par with moyes

Sickened that Rooney was made captain.

Hodgson's new-look squad...

Goalkeepers: Fraser Forster (Southampton), Ben Foster (West Bromwich Albion), Joe Hart (Manchester City)

Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Calum Chambers (Arsenal), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Phil Jones (Manchester United), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), John Stones (Everton)

Midfielders: Jack Colback (Newcastle United), Fabian Delph (Aston Villa), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), James Milner (Manchester City), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal) Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Andros Townsend (Tottenham Hotspur), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal)

Forwards: Rickie Lambert (Liverpool), Wayne Rooney [C] (Manchester United), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Danny Welbeck (Arsenal)
I copied and pasted from the BBC and I don't see Glen Johnson in there...doth mine eyes deceive me !?!?

There is a lot more youth in midfield which excites me. I expect we'll continue to line up like this:

------------Hart
Jones-Cahill-Jagielka-Baines
-----Henderson-Wilshere
Sterling--Rooney--Welbeck
----------Sturridge

------------Forster
Chambers-Jones-Stones-Rose
-------Colback-Delph
Townsend-Sterling-Chamberlain
------Welbeck/Lambert

2nd string doesn't strike fear into the hearts of opponents but that is the hand we've been dealt...
Danny Welbeck is Arsenal, not Manchester United. ;)
1st string doesn't strike fear in to opponents either.

cheers YungGunner, when I posted this 6 days ago he was still at Utd :P
