Who Will Make The 30?

The final 23-man squad for South Africa will be named soon enough, although the initial 30 will be named tomorrow - Vital England asks who you think will, could or should stay or go?

Vital England says: Fabio Capello announces his 30-man provisional world cup squad for South Africa on Tuesday, but who do you think will make it?

Can you see any surprise 1st time inclusions, late recalls or even surprise omissions taking place - in fact who would you like to see go or miss out?

What do you think?

This is just a sample section (feel free to leave comments here and there), read the full article on this link - England - who will make the 30?

If Green, Baines, Upson, Huddlestone Heskey, Cole and Zamora are really the best we can come up with there needs to be a serious look at the state of the game. That is just depressing. Add to that the tossbags such as Terry, Cole and Gerrard and it makes for some pretty unsavory reading.
Rocky7
@chipo- from your list, who are the 7 be cut at the deadline? Defenders - Campbell, King, Baines, J.Cole, Huddlestone, C.Cole and Zamora

I remember Darren Bent finished highest English goal scorer before the world cup during his days at Charlton and he wasn't even considered, now he is second only Rooney in goals scored by an English player, all this whilst at clubs which do not provide the conveyor belt of chances gifted to strikers at the top clubs. I wonder if he will get considered this time?
Professor Calculus
Prof - He's got to be the second choice striker in my book. I heard the other day that in the last few seasons (I forget the exact number) there is only Rooney and Drogba who have scored more goals than he. How Crouch, Heskey, Cole, Zamora and Agbonlahor can be considered before him is plain craziness.
Rocky7
U seen Crouchys record for England?

Rocky7, Maybe if the arse sported some english players in there team there would be more choice for capello to pick from, so instead of putting a downer on it why dont you get behind them, unless of course you are foreign like the whole of your team.

I also find the amazing change of opinion on here over Darren Bent amazing. When he played for us he was mentioned in every other article by Little Dutch as a figure of fun, alongside messrs Robinson and Huddlestone over their relative mass. I suppose now hes a top player yes? He still has a shocking first touch and at the highest level gets found out. He's just at the perfect team in Sunderland thats all where long balls down the channels are exploited by him and hes the focal point. Hes a top prem striker he was at Spurs, but like Steve Bull, Kevin Phillips, etc hes not international class. Neither was Andy Cole or Robbie Fowler
HuddersfieldYiddo
HY, surprise, I entirely agree with you re Bent. Also, tottingham10, you may be surprised that we used 8 English players in the league this season. Yes, I know, they were not regular starters because of injuries and youth - but AW is trying to develop English players. The 8 were: Theo, Campbell, Gibbs, Lansbury, Eastmond, Wilshere, Conor Henderson and Jay Emanuel Thomas. English players tied with French players for the top nationality of players AW fielded in the league this season. // Also, good to hear that sense has prevailed: Hodgson and NOT Redknapp has won Manager of the Year by the premier league managers association.

Every country in the world's 30 man squad- possibly bar Spain- will contain some very average players, that's not the sole preserve of England. I looked at the Dutch squad yesterday and I hadn't heard of about eight of the players- it's also noticeable that about 18 of their players are plying their trade in the Dutch league which hasn't been the case for years. Brazil have Kleberson in their team, the German squad is full of nobodies. 30 players is a very big pool of players- bigger than any Premiership 1st team squad and club sides get the pick iof any nationality.
Little Dutch
"Brazil have Kleberson in their team" - don't get me started! A guy who can't even get off the bench at Flamengo, ffs! And then there's Julio Baptista!! AAARRRGGGHHH!!! Whatever Dinho's problems, geezus, he's a better choice than Baptista to stand in for Kaka in midfield!
