hmmmm..l if I had everyone Ok.. and no injury worries.. I'd go for:

1. Nigel Martyn
2. Danny Mills
3. Ashley Cole
4. Sol Campbell
5. Rio Ferdinand
6. Steven Gerrard
7. David Beckham
8. Kieron Dyer
9. Robbie Fowler
10. Michael Owen
11. this is my mystery position.. there are three players that I think would do well here:

a. Emile Heskey.. Yes.. play him as a left winger.. he can use his size, pace and crosses to create terror... (Love the nickname BOSH :))

b. Steve McManaman.. Yes I know he's underacheived for the NT.. (although I'm not someone who agrees 100% with that!!).. but Shaggy has learnt a lot from his time with Real Madrid.. he's been one of the most consistent players at the Bernabau (when he plays).. he's good at dribbling and the short pass.. and can also cover up for Ashley Cole when he goes on those surging runs (just as he covers up for Roberto Carlos at RM)!!

c. Lee Bowyer!! The lad has simply SO much skill and more than something you can over look.. whether you play him on the left or in a Scholes like position (with Dyer moving to the left).. He's someone who should start!!

Subs: Seaman, Southgate, G Neville, Carragher, the 2 who don't get picked from the 3 no. 11s :) ... Scholes, Joe Cole and finally Darius Vassell....

There is non suitable person for a left midfield for the England NT but these guys can make it just to make it a full squad though :

Grame Le Saux
Kyron Dyer

How come i am the only person to have included Sinclair? What do you guys think about his WC prospects?

I think he has been outstanding all year for West Ham, however he has been unable to recreate his form in the limited oppurtunities he has had for the NT. I think he should be given a full 90 in the next friendly and let him show what he can do.

Hi mutu..

Well I've always been impressed with Sinclair.. but I didn't pick him in my team cuz I would not have him in my starting eleven.. especially with Beckham back and a fit Kieron Dyer...

Ok.. on the right.. I'd love to have Beckham and Bowyer available..
On the left.. I'd have Kieron Dyer and Joe Cole.. with Hargreaves being able to support both positions!! Ok I know Bowyer won't be picked (which is a pity to say the least).. but I think IF Sinclair is picked.. he'd be at the bottom of the picking order.. lets say Beckam gets a knock.. would I send Dyer to the right and bring in Joe Cole?? bring in Hargreaves?? or Sinclair?? (put in mind that SGE is a very big fan of Hargreaves and Dyer!!)

Ah the illusive XI... well mine would be:


--------------------Seaman

Dyer----Campbell----Ferdinand----Bridge

Beckham---Gerrard---Scholes---A Cole

---------------Fowler----Owen

I know that it wont be... I mean G Neville will be right back and A Cole is untested at left midfield but for me it would have been useful for these two players to have been fit for the previous friendlies so they could have been tested out in these positions.

I for one am certain that A Cole can play well at left midfield... I mean he is great going forward but not so hot at defending... if not him then Jo Cole should play:)

I think Vassel has the pace that Sven craves in his players, whereas Heskey, may be better to start against a rougher opponent, like the dirty Argies.
