Is Slaven Bilic going to kick our butts again,or can we come away from Croatia with at least a point?

England might win this one.

They haven't got a clown in charge this time.

No.. We'll lose 2 - 0...

Capello has come in promising all these changes, saying players will be picked on merit rather than reputation yet he still plays the likes of Lampard, Rooney, Gerrard, Downing etc... None of whom have done anything at international level for the last 4 years!

The majority of the lads on the squad know they will be picked and as such have lost any passion they had.. The likes of Ashley Young being left out is a joke!

Bullard should start tomorrow, first cap he'll play his heart out.

I think we may come away with a draw.(unless Joe Cole can win the game on his own,again!)
I will be interested to see how Jimmy Bullard goes on,too. He is a superb passer of the ball.
Some of the regulars do seem to take being picked for granted. Capello needs to make it plain to players that places are there for those who earn them,thus promoting healthy competition for those places.
Players have to start running through brick walls again,when they pull on that England shirt.

lint874,i take my hat off to you. You called it right.
I predicted a draw,and that was more in hope than expectation.
Perhaps now,in the post Rusty Mclarren era,England can look forward to a little less hurt.
Undoubtedly,we have laid a ghost to rest tonight,but lets not get carried away.
Just yet!

Ah,Mike,you may well scoff. But if ,under Capello,England can blaze a trail of glory to the World Cup Finals,you will be as defenceless as the rest of us,when football fever proliferates through the nation.

Its early for panto season anyway but in traditional response to the one on stage from the pit and auditorioum I say LOUDLY
OH NO I WON'T tongue

Joking aside and being very pro RUGBY Union and Welsh Rugby at that cos the buggers can sing dirty songs - even about footbal cheers I have to say credit where credit is due. I reckon Senor Capello has done a great job learning English from scratch so quickly as he has and getting a team of second rate primadonnas (overpaid footballers) to act as one for a change is

*very nice* roll eyes too
(Patronising sod)
