Oi! Roy! Please don't do a Sven!

It's nearly world cup time and finally after all these years, and despite the general pessimism of the nation England will be lifting the trophy in Brazil. Yep you heard me, that's just so long as Hodgson doesn't do a Sven anyway!  By doing a Sven I mean having a mental crisis on the the brink of announcing the tournament squad and selecting four strikers, two of whom are injured and one who at the age of 16 has only ever played in the youth team and reserves at his club!

At the current price of 25/1 to win the world cup surely it's worth sticking at least a fiver on England?!?!

Unless Roy is either blind or has been hypnotised by Sven Goran Eriksson then he has to have players like Adam Lallana in his team rather than sticking with the 'safe' boring option of Lampard and Barry in midfield while we all shout at the TV screen "for f**ks sake! get Barry off!  bring Oxlade-Chamberlain on!"

If Roy rings me for advice this is the starting line up I'll probably recommend to him.  I'll be telling him to go all out attack.  
If we go out on pens in the quarters as per then most England fans won't mind as much if we've set the tournament on fire with frantic end to end 4-3's every game, well..... we will mind of course because we will have been robbed by an unjust red card and a disallowed goal but like I said, this year we won't have to go through all that, THIS year, this is the one.....

What sort of team is that? where is Stewart Downing?
