ADAM LALLANA

Adam Lallana will start against Germany tomorrow night, Roy Hodgson has confirmed.

The England manager has named the following team for the Wembley friendly: Hart, Walker, Smalling, Jagielka, Cole, Lallana, Gerrard, Cleverley, Townsend, Rooney, Sturridge.

"I was more than happy with Adam's performance against Chile on Friday," he said.

Hodgson also revealed that Rickie Lambert is in line to win his fourth England cap after replacing Daniel Sturridge during a training ground match this morning.

He added: "The reason he (Sturridge) came off after two sectors - if you like - of the game we were playing this morning, was to give Rickie Lambert a chance of also playing at centre-forward because there's a good chance, and we want to see him play tomorrow night as well as Daniel Sturridge."

"traning ground" I didn't realise that the missing letter syndrome affected the editorials too! Blooming gremlins.

I would be interested to see Rooney and Rickie pair up, after Rickie made Welbeck look good, it shouldn't stress the imagination that he could also help Wayne to look good too.

I just hope they ditch the 4-3-3 and play 4-2-3-1 Lambert up top Rooney in the attacking midfield position Lallana and Townsend on the wings. Can't see it happening though.

I think Sturridge may be a risk, he is carrying a thigh injury, however there is likely to be strength on the bench, especially if Rickie is fit, can't see JRods name anywhere, has he been written off already, seems a bit harsh.

Having been away the weekend I missed the footie action but it appears Adam was generally accepted as being England's best player on Saturday while JayRod suffered the usual fate of new England forwards of being totally starved of support as a result of the rest of the team being overrun by better oppenents.

However there's a very interesting article on BBC website (http://www.bbc.co.u
k/sport/0/football/2
4979752). Basically Chile's coach took over about 4 years ago and began to run the national squad using exactly the same approach Saints are now utilising. I quote "Instead, he sought tempo - frenetic, high-rhythm football that smothered the opposition in their half of the field".

Result? They are now a team which will always comfortably beat the rag-bag collection of players that now represent England.

As some were saying on Wrightie's football phone-in last night, England have no such plan, and instead keep throwing in players in the vain hope something might happen - an approacvh that would have led to an early divorce if my wife had adopted the same approach to cooking. As the old adage says, if you aim at nothing that is precisely what you will hit.

As a result I fear Saints players will lose out when it comes to the World Cup, being seen as unsuitable in comparison to all England's "big" players" who have never, and will never, achieve anything on the world stage. The Saints players play in a team which is becoming increasingly greater than the sum of its parts - England however are the total opposite, continuing to perfer those who are simply dependable and who "work hard for the team".

Never mind lads - show everyone this season what can happen when you put together a team and structure that has one aim, to play good football and win matches. Eventually those in authority might actually start to take notice.

Hope Sturridge aggravates the thigh injury. One it might get Rickie on, and two, he may miss the game at Everton. Win,win.

Germans may be piggish looking automatons, who spend nearly all their time swilling beer, eating f@rty cabbage and smelly offal and singing idiotic folk songs using a language that lacks any semblance of civilised speech and sounds like somebody using a sick bag on a 747 - but they're quite handy at football and the Fatherland is blessed by not having Portsmouth in it.

Confucious, your words of wisdom are for the first wring untrue.

1) English is a corruption of German..shock, horror, the Romans who invaded did not pop up from Italy saying ciao bella to us..not a bit of it..the Roman empite conquered by assimialtion and our very own assimilator facilitators were GERMAN..

You hit the nail on the head. Chile play an extremely similar style of football to Saints. For me watching the game - being on the receiving end of that type of performance wasn't pleasant. I almost have sympathy for the rest of the premier league-but then again maybe not.

Personally I feel that Lallana could well force his way into the World Cup Squad. Lambert has a great chance of going as well - it's his spot to loose.
Potentially Clyne could go as well, especially since Johnson and Walker seem to have had a lot of injury problems.

As for Luke Shaw and JWP aren't too far away, but I feel that the recent criticism of the U21 set up could mean that they are already penned in for the U21's next summer.

Germany didn't become a unified state until 1871. England has been a nation since 921. English has the same roots at German but is not a corruption of German.
Allow me to state correctly Westphalia..you are correct in Germany's nationhood BUT the Germanic areas and language thereof of Germany, Austria, Swiss Deutsch area and certain other neighbouring territories began in Westphalia before English ever existed here…they unfortunately started it.

My wife has just put on one of her favourite CDs. Do you remember the cute Norwegian (well, Belarussian) bloke who won the Eurovision a few years ago? His song was called Fairytale.

My wife puts the CD on because she thinks I hate it. However, every time I hear that song, I think of fairytales and can't help but think of Saints, Rickie, Adam ......

......... (yet to be) JWP, Luke, Nat, Jack .......

Markus (God rest his wonderful soul) really did make some fairytales come true.

Do you remember the cute Norwegian (well, Belarussian) bloke who won the Eurovision a few years ago? His song was called Fairytale. My wife puts the CD on because she thinks I hate it. However, every time I hear that song, I think of fairytales and can't help but think of Saints, Rickie, Adam ...... ......... (yet to be) JWP, Luke, Nat, Jack ....... Markus (God rest his wonderful soul) really did make some fairytales come true. Strasbourg Saint

Nice to see you looking to the future (no matter how warped you think it is) rather than living in the past. Perhaps you can get your fellow fishies to do the same.

J7, stop hitting the poor skunt with facts & figures. You know how upsetting reality is for them.

Come on Rickie and Adam - you'll be really tested in this one.

Germans may be piggish looking automatons, who spend nearly all their time swilling beer, eating f@rty cabbage and smelly offal and singing idiotic folk songs using a language that lacks any semblance of civilised speech and sounds like somebody using a sick bag on a 747 - but they're quite handy at football and the Fatherland is blessed by not having Portsmouth in it.
Confucious, your words of wisdom are for the first wring untrue.

1) English is a corruption of German..shock, horror, the Romans who invaded did not pop up from Italy saying ciao bella to us..not a bit of it..the Roman empite conquered by assimialtion and our very own assimilator facilitators were GERMAN..

2) Until Floyd, Delia, Heston et al appeared typical English food (sunday roast aside) was awful.

3) I wish we could blooody well remember a song longer than the dirge called the national anthem...want to commit suicide before any event starts...!

4) True about the p'muff but no other country has such a vile entity..

Shape up man.
There was no such place as Germany when the Romans invaded..our language is a corruption of many tongues,..Celt, Angle, Saxon and French...a melange, you might say.
' A melange you might say'

Perfect example of how the English language just borrows from every other and puts it to brilliant use. Thinking in English makes perfect sense,as we all know.
Old English was mostly derived from the Old German (similar to "Platt Deutsch and Dutch) that Saxons and Angles spoke. Both of them are quite different from the modern languages today,so you could say they are "cousin languages", not "mother and daughter". English has, since then, borrowed a great deal from French (Normans). Interestingly, the source of a language does matter: it is during the Angle and Saxon invasions that "Inglis" was introduced into Scotland, rather than by the English. So, the English spoken in Scotland originated there, and was not an imposition by their Southern neighbours as some want to think.
I may be wrong, as when I speak about football... in any case, this comment is equally as irrelevant .
