    When all is said and done I have nobody to blame for that but myself.


    I will struggle to get that unholy image out of head for some time and trust me I have seen some nasty things in my time.

    Cheers for that.

    Back on topic.... Amidst all this fisting....

    Im not too sure any of our players will be picked. Of course it depends on who Capello takes to the Euros first as to who is then eligible in what position, but I think it will be mainly Premier League youngsters and maybe a few from West Ham, Southampton etc. The media will probably pick the team anyways :p

    I hope Brady, Cam, Dudg or one of them get a chance to at least be in the squad.

    Cannot see any City players being picked! Well, apart from our new young striker we bring in on loan!

    Forget the Euros now. England is a busted flush. Time to focus on something we can win like an Olympic Gold.

    Messrs. Bale, Ramsey should be begging Pearce to take them as they shall win nowt with Wales.

    GB can have a great chance of Olympic Gold with the right squad so time to forget the Euros now, imo.

    I've just been offered Euro tickets as part of an allocation to Club Wembley members, they're not as expensive as normal...

    Group stages - £109
    Quarter Final - £136
    Semi Final - £245
    Final - £545

    Considering what it cost me in Japan, Germany and Portugal, it's looking like a bargain.

    I didn't stop supporting City when they were ****, I've no reason to do it with my national team either.

    with whats going on with the National Team at the moment it may well get to be the case that you cannot give them away. plus Poland and Ukraine are not exactly hot spots for tourists either,

    Apparently Capello's comments re stripping Terry of the captaincy may be breach of contract. They're not going to sack him this close to the Euros are they!!

    dont think that Capello would be bothered one way or another. part of his cunning plan. England are a mess.

    Going back to my earlier point about there being 18 players in the squad. I would expect you to get:

    2 x GK
    6 x defender
    6 x midfielder
    4 x striker

    I think we're safe to say we're not going to have a goalkeeper or a striker from our squad in there, plus I think Rhodes is likely to be the only gamble they take on a non-PL/regular U21s striker. Just off the top of my head:

    Midfielder's the squad is going to have Beckham, Bale, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, probably Giggs, then you've got the likes of Rodwell, Henderson, Albrighton, and Gardner playing in the PL.

    Defenders they'll be looking for 2 right backs, and 3 centre backs and 1 left back (Bale can drop to left back if needs be). Clyne will be one of the right backs (also extra option on the left), Martin Kelly, Danny Wilson from Liverpool. The senior England squad is likely to be Terry, Ferdinand, Cahill plus one other. That means either Jones or Smalling is available for the Olympics. There's Jenkinson and Gibbs at Arsenal, Caulker at Swansea.

    Capello should be sacked. He has made a bad situation far worse now. Kick him out as soon as poss. We need an England Manager to take an England team to the Euros. Don't care who.

    For who? For all we know the rest of the England squad has been talking to him saying they're unhappy about Terry being punished when he's yet to be found guilty of anything. He's already had his position undermined by the board of the FA taking the footballing decision that he can pick Terry but he can't name him as captain, he can do without losing the rest of the players if they wanted him to keep it and think Capello should be sticking up for him.
