  • Good luck to Robbo, I don’t think that he will get his chance though will he? Stevie W is AGAIN VERY unlucky to be left out as Wayne Bridge continues to be selected despite the fact he doesn’t play very often for Chelsea!!!

  • A terrible squad!!! No Ashley Young, Woodgate, Owen, Bent, Crouch, Richards etc etc Bullard???? Upson????? Bridge?????? WALCOTT???????????????????????????? Capello has lost the plot!!

  • So glad that Bullard got in… what a legend. Seriously is there a nicer guy in football??? Mani has someone p***ed you off tonight!?!?

  • He should be, but its still the same and some of the additions are awful, Bullard, Upson and no Owen who’ll score the goals especially against Andorra, Capello’s clueless similar to the Swede.

  • Why is Bullard an awful addition? Passionate, great passer, link up play with the forwards is great… stuff that England have been missing. Lets face it, some of the first choice X1 have been rubbish for england, give ther next lot a chance… A team of Robinson (yes I know biased), Micah Richards, Jonny Woodgate, Rio Ferdinand, Joleon Lescott, David Bentley, Gareth Barry, Jimmy Bullard, Joe Cole, Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcott would shake things up again.

  • Personally I still don’t think that Robbo should be the number one again just yet, if he has a good few months with us then he could be ready, but throwing him back in at this point in time could be a bad thing. Let him build his confidence right up again, then maybe but until then he will be in the squads, but that’s about it.

  • I agree boss. To early but give him till christmas to get his confidence back and then he should be a strong contender. I am glads he is with the squad though as it will again build his confidence.
