Yeah, I know it's kinda early for this thread, but it was gonna happen sometime. :)

Anyway, I was just wondering what people's prediction's were for the game and the line-up they would choose, players they would drop, formations etc etc.



4-2-3-1
James


Johnson Terry Dawson
(Carra suspended) A. Cole

Barry Lampard



Lennon Gerrard J.Cole



Rooney


So, we need a win to qualify.


How the group is atm:


Slovenia - 4pts

USA - 2pts
England - 2pts
Algeria - 1pt

If we win, we go through regardless of other results, but do we want Germany in the last 16?


So, what approach would you take towards the game, it looks likely that Slovenia will 'park the bus' so it goes without saying that we need to take it easy, and carefully and not throw too many players forward at once.


So, would you go for it and try and get as many goals as possible so we can win the group but also run the risk of being counter-attacked, or would you settle for a 1 - 0 and ensure our place in the last 16 and face the possibillity of playing Germany?



Let's also make this a complaint thread about how poor we were against Algeria, just basically let us know, what you'd like to see for the England game on Wednesday afternoon.

Its funny how everyone can see that we need to play 4-2-3-1 except Capello, he really lost it tactically last night.

Yeah, right at the crucial time.

At least we're better than the French.

So, if we beat Slovenia, and USA fail to beat Algeria, we win the group with Slovenia as runner's up, but if we win, and USA also win, whoever has the biggest goal-difference will go through.

If we win, we are through, regardless of what USA do. As we would have 5 and Slovenia 4pts.

do we really want to come top? If Ghana beat the Aussies today and don't lose against Germany then they go top.

We just need to hope and pray that USA don't get a result.

Slovenia shouldn't be underestimated,especially after their performance against the Americans,of whom were lucky to escape by the skin of their teeth.

Even Desailly pleaded to Capello to switch to a 4-2-3-1,but we'll see if whether or not it has fallen onto deaf ears.

Rooney shouldn't be playing. He was a disgrace.

Heskey and Defoe up front please.

I disagree.

His defending WAS poor but his crosses were decent.

At least he was trying to be more attacking minded unlike Lazy Lampard, Greedy Gerrard and ****** Rooney. XD

Every player needs to do better, simples, rooney was ****, the worst player on the pitch against algeria, but his Service was also *****, gerrard, lennon, SWP and Lampard. done of them could pass the ball, cross the ball or takes corners, as for the defence, thank god We have a new CB partnership( maybe 2 new CBs)

1-0 is all we need right now.

Capello is too scared to drop Rooney but I can see one of the wingers getting the goal.

Yeah, Capello bums Rooney.

But he plays him too deep, he needs to be like a poacher.

Slovenia are good defensively and if we couldn't score against Algeria we will definately not score against Slovenia. Hate to say it but there is a big chance we could go out.
