    But there wouldn't be any English players in the team which is the whole point

    Was it? I didn't read back sorry. I thought your point was the BPL is the best league.

    yes, that's true,

    but it didn't previously stop hodgson enquiring ( as well as Belgium, Kosovo and Albanian) about the possibility of selecting youngster Adnan Januzaj who was born in Belgium, Albanian and Kosovo descent , more importantly does not have English passport

    In fact, I'd like Hodgson to step down and let Rodgers try his hand.
    My team too. Depends on his tactics though as to whether we'd give them a game. Can't imagine he'll pick this lineup.

    We're excluding those because we don't really care. We're saying we'd like to see the youngsters given a try and an attacking line up, so CD doesn't matter to us.

    The midfield will be something atrociously boring like

    Milner ---- Gerrard ---- Lampard


    Eurgh!

    Dunno, may not be that bad. Team against Poland in last qualifier was:

    Hart,Smalling,Jagelka,Cahill,Baines,Gerrard,Carric k,Towsend,Sturridge,Rooney,Welbeck 4-2-3-1 so he may swap Wilshere for Carrick and Sterling for Towsend. I don't think he'll play Gerrard and Lampard together from the start although he has before.
