    and if we put 10 past them it'll be "ah well it was only Hungary they are crap" but if we only win by 1 or 2 goals then our whole world cup is over and we might as well not bother going :p

    If Sven sticks to the same team all the way through people will say hes set in his ways and wont try new players but if he makes wholesale changes people will say he's tinkering about too much and dont know what hes doing :o

    The joys of being the England manager no decision you make is right it's the law ;)

    Any idea on the formation then? Flat 5 midfield or Lampard/Gerrard played in a Rooney-type role.

    Gerrard in the role J.Cole should be playing in that formation with Carragher holding as discussed:)

    Proberly with Gerrad off Owen, but they may play both Lampard and Gerrard off Owen in a dimond (but with 2 at the head of it):

    -------------------Carrick
    --------Beckham-------------Cole
    --------------Gerrard----Lampard
    --------------------Owen
