Daniel Taylor was online to answer your questions about tonight's match at Wembley
We have two quizzes to put in the afternoon before the match...
Can you fill in the blanks on these two?
Thanks for reading and commenting
Daniel has signed off...
Why has Michael Carrick been consistently overlooked by successive England managers? A cornerstone of the most (begrudginly - I'm an Arsenal fan) successful team in England over the last few years, an accomplished midfielder who retains possession, and a class act all round. Are the managers at fault or is Carrick?
If England lose, in what order are the papers going to apportion blame:
FA - for selling tickets to Poles
Players for playing poor
Players for being poor
FA for appointing Roy not 'Arry
FA for the players being poor
The Premier League
Too many Johnny Foreigners?
Daniel, Steven Gerrard seems to give the ball away an awful lot in England matches, quite often trying ambitious through balls. I would be interested to know how his pass and assist stats compare to his peers and wonder whether his reputation covers his passing errors? I also wonder whether other players making such errors would get a much harder time in the press coverage?
Speaking hypothetically, we fail to win the group, and after losing in the play-offs, where Roy Hodgson's team manages to snatch failure from the jaws of victory, who could we install as new manager?
Any chance of seeing Tom Huddlestone been given a chance with regards to his good form this season and his eye for a pass?
Do you think Ravel Morrison should be fast tracked into the England set up? Much like Barkley and others have been?
Here's that goal by Morrison...
Given that an early goal would do wonders to calm typically fraught English nerves, do you think Hodgson will again go against type and instruct the place to attack with pace from the start? The downside to that would be, if England don't score, the players would start to think "well, what now?".
Assuming we qualify, do you think Gerrard and Lampard at the base of a 2-3-1 'front six' will be the default model for Brazil? I can see it getting us past the weaker teams, but surely there's a worrying lack of mobility in front of the defence if and when we come up against the stronger sides? If you think some more energy is needed in that area, which one would drop out and who would come in?
Daniel Taylor on England's tactical line-up...
Daniel, do you think England will start with the same line-up (apart from Walker, of course)?
If Leighton Baines puts in another comanding performance will we finally see the back of Ashley Cole in an England shirt? Cole seems a nice guy but his defending is suspect at times.
Have you ever heard a footballer use more cliches per 100 words than Stevie Gerrard? He must be on piece time or trying to win a bet. On the other hand, at school he spent the whole time looking out the window, and I bet he doesn't spend all that much time reading Jane Austen.
Daniel, do you think 18,000 Polish fans will be sufficient to drown out the England Brass Band?
If we win tonight, will England play Forster in goal and Barkley in midfield in the next friendly?
Internationals at Wembley don't come much bigger than this. Tonight England welcome Poland – and their 18,000 fans – in a match the home team need to win to guarantee automatic qualification to next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil. Daniel will be along soon to discuss the match, but in the meantime, here are a few previews:
Dominic Fifield heard from Steven Gerrard in yesterday's pre-match press conference. The captain says he will be the "proudest man in the country" if he can leads the team to victory tonight.
Michael Cox reckons that Roy Hodgson should target Poland's weak full-backs.
Barney Ronay has been looking back on previous last-ditch World Cup qualifiers.
And Daniel Taylor has been recalling England's failure to qualify for Euro 2008 after their defeat to Croatia – an episode from which Gerrard says he will never fully recover.
Enjoy the webchat.
