Name your ideal England side for the next big tournament
In light of such a terrible World Cup, the Sunday papers would have you believe that while the dangling axe might have missed Capello, it shan’t be so clumsy when ridding of geriatrics like JT, Led, old man Becksie, Lamp Lamp, and the Cole Sisters.
It seems that the “Golden Generation” has turned out to be made up of fool’s gold, old bits of foil, and discarded milk bottle tops that look shiny and exciting if you see them from a distance, but up close, they’re just smelly bits of rubbish.
Anyway, muddled imagery aside, who would you like to see jogging out for England at Euro 2012/World Cup 2014?
Here’s a stab at a Spoiler XI (4-2-1-2-1):
Goalkeeper: Joe Hart
Back four: Glen Johnson, Michael Dawson, Phil Jagielka, Kieran Gibbs
Defensive midfielders: Jack Rodwell, James Milner
Attacking midfielders: Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Adam Johnson
Striker: Wayne Rooney
Now do yours…
