    I dont agree with no Robinson personally, I dont think he should start the same, or be 1st choice, but should be in the squad.

    Lennon should be in the team come the qualifiers but if he can get a full game for under 21's it may be a smart move to get international experience.

    Walcott, what has he done? Personally dont even see why he's in the frame. Under 21's, yes, full team? No chance for me.

    Agree on the Walcott thing. He shouldn't be in the first team right now. Beckham should have played in this game. Give him the extra cap for feck sake, he's earned it over the years.

    Shame England didn't make the Euro's this year instead of two bites at the cherry I can only cheer for for my other nationailty Spain now. :(

    Oh well, GO SPAIN!!!! :)

    Decent team, i hope Capello knows what hes doing for his own sake.

    Yeah Robinson isnt good enough, neither are any of the english keepers there, my bet would be on Green (West Ham) and soon to be Almunia from Arsenal when he gets his English passport.

    I think score will be 3-1 England.

    Well, if we win, I just hope the media don't go all google-eyed and build the team and manager up... only to knock 'em down again when we draw nil -nil against some supposed third rate outfit.

    I agree Beckham should have been picked... put on the bench, come on in the second half, for the last 20 mins... and that would have been a nice goodbye...

    It's nice to see Bentley has been picked... I reckon he could do well, if given a proper chance.

    It happens all the time no matter how much we hope it won't happen. The media is one of the biggest problems why England managers fail. Scholari had the right idea from the get go, when he realized what the media were like in the UK he gave the FA the finger and moved on, which in a way was a shame but also a good thing, if that makes some sort of bizarre sense!

    Hopefully Capello won't take the same nonsense and will tell the media where to go!

    Let's face it, being a goalie he's probably the only one crazy enough to come out. The rest will all be in the changing rooms in front of the heaters.:twisted:
