v Estonia:

England: Hart; Chambers, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines; Henderson, Wilshere, Delph, Lallana; Welbeck, Rooney.

looks like the diamond with lallana at #10. solid stuff. thoughts?
might've preferred clyne to chambers on the right, i think he offers more attack. on the flipside chambers defends set pieces better.
we had a win again 1 - nill win, we had 3 wins 0 losses 0 draws.

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:
