Wilshere set for starting role?

Wilshere set for starting role?

From Vital England:

Jack Wilshere has taken the English game by storm in recent months and the Arsenal mans fine form 'looks' as though it will earn him a first competitive start tomorrow.

Not that Fabio Capello was giving much away, although with his glowing report on him he 'seems' to be suggesting that Wilshere is in: 'he is a young player who has improved a lot in a short time. He was an interesting player, when he played his first game with us he was good, but young.

'Now he is playing like a player who has played a lot of games, like a 28 or 29-year-old. He plays the game fantastically with personality and without fear.

'It's not easy to find players like him who play without fear in places like the Nou Camp.

'I spoke with Arsene (Wenger) and he told him he was also surprised by how he had improved so much in so short a time.'

As far as captaincy goes for the 19-year-old Capello had previously said he thought he would one day captain The Three Lions and sticks by those thoughts, not that it is something he will have to consider during his time left as England manager.

I think he's wasted playing for England and will be literally wasted if also compelled to play for the U21's. His career will stand or fall on what he does at club level let him get that right and he can pick and choose the few internationals that might just about be worth playing in.

As much as many of us care nothing about international football, I think you are being a bit presumptuous Amos. I'm sure it is an honour for Jack, as it is for any player, to be selected for national duty. Aside from pride, it could reap financial benefits as well. Example- Ryan Giggs and David Beckham were both talented midfielders in their youth, albeit with major limitations in both cases. BUT, if Giggs played for England and Beckham for Wales, which one would now have the most endorsements? If a player could pick and choose internationals that would be great- they'd skip the odd freindly. I agree that being forced to play for the U21s after becoming a full international is a joke, but I don't understand what you mean by him being wasted playing for England.

I think Walcott has wasted a good part of his development playing for England who overused and then dumped him until his club form showed them why they were wrong to dump him. Michael Owen's career top level might have been extended had he not played more games for England before he was 25 than Scholes or Giggs, whose careers have been extended, did in their entire careers. Wilshere doesn't need international football to become a world class talent. It maybe one of the factors that could get in the way of him reaching the heights his talent could justify. If he's good enough and doing the stuff for his club the international vampires will always be outside his window.

Yeah lets just abandon international football altogether, waste of time. After all England fans are just thuggish EDL supporting morons. That hattrick in Croatia did nothing for Walcotts development at all

Glad you're with me finally HY but it's a bit extreme calling all England supporters thuggish morons. You need to keep a sense of proportion. I doubt very much that they are all thuggish morons. Walcotts hat trick for England didn't do enough to prevent England dumping him after they'd broken him while his hat trick for Arsenal after we'd put him back together had Capello openly regretting that they'd dumped him. Clowns all of them.

The real culprit here is FIFA and their iron-fisted control of the international calendar. World Cup (and conference championship) qualifiers should only be played in the year before the tournament, and in the odd years there should be no internationals at all. Friendlies are just a cash grab with the FA and other associations are happy to leech off of for financial gain. As long as FIFA controls the calendar, this will continue, and players will get injuries and/or burn-out.

Just as governments think all money belongs to them and budgets are their opportunity to let us know how much of their money they will let us keep so football associations attitude towards players follows the same arrogantly dismissive path. Governments and football associations should be made to come cap in hand begging for what they want from those who make it.

On a personal level I couldn't give a toss about the England team. The day I cheer on w****rs like Terry, Gerard and Cole I'll be wearing a toe tag. For the players that maybe different, the fact is the national teams do nothing but steal the assets which legally belong to the clubs, knacker them, send them back injured and unusable, without compensation (for friendlies). Which professional industry would allow junk like that to happen?
