Dull England

Possible remedy:

Robinson (for want of someone worse)

Terry (very solid, but needs to be accompanied by someone swift, so, holding my nose)
Ferdinand (plonker, roll on King/Woodgate/another)
P Neville (mostly under-rated; excellent holding player)

Cashley (I'd rather have Bridge at the Bridge, but Cashley is a better wing back)
Lennon (or SWP)

Parker (box to box; back up in Hargreaves and Carrick, all of whom could do the job)
Lampard (tossup between him and Gerrard, but Gerrard's suspended for Croatia)

Inside forwards (old fashioned concept I know)
Crouch & Rooney (gotta have both, neither are best deployed at the cutting edge)

Star on the Christmas tree
Johnson/Defoe/Owen (I've been impressed with Johnson, but Owen - if he regains his fitness - is made for this role)

Basically, don't play Gerrard on the wing

Sort of a 2-3-2-2-1 formation.... collapsing into a 5-4-1 when we don't have possession...
