I get the feeling that certain posters see some ones name and click thumbs down without even reading the post, and we also have our silent fish who just click thumbs down to most posts.
I got some thumbs down for saying we could keep luke and pay him £70k a week, do people not want him to stay?

anyway I don't care about the starting 11, as those that roy wants to look at will get some game time. I don't think lalla will get any time as he is sure of a place on the plane. will be interesting to see if SRL gets on. does roy think he has a place on the plane instead of donkey? i am getting excited about an England game again! sorry saints game ;0)

Thought hed start with Cole to check him out and play Shaw second half...supprised no lallana but i reckon Roy doesnt need to see more of him so thats good. Would be great to see a second half double sub of lallana and shaw at least they will pass to each other...would be great if Jay can get on the pitch and make animpression he needs to score to have a chance to go..as for Rickie Roy also knows what he can do and could also be going but he needs a good end to the season to make sure.

I think Woy has picked the same usual dross for the first half and he's leaving all the real quality till the second half. Good thinking Woy. Tactical genius. I'm watching the cricket till some quality is brought on.

Well, looks like we could have four Saints players in the same England side later tonight - looking forward to the second half.

Not sure what Roy hopes to learn with Cole - I don't think 45 minutes in what is a meaningless friendly for Denmark will show his true rustiness and age, in fact, if you wanted a fixture that will make him look misleadingly solid, this is it.

Will be interesting to see if Rickie and J-Rod get a game and, if so, for how long. I expect Rickie to get a decent amount of time, because clearly he's not picking him for the future. J-Rod may not get much of a run out - I think Roy wants to keep him in and around the squad ahead of involvement in the Euros.

So none of our "England" players are actually playing, just on the bench along with a dozen others for a token 2nd half appearance. Sounds like Yoshida played well for Japan, but he will be jet lagged when he gets back. As for Victor Wanyama, lord knows what condition he'll be in when he gets back from Kenya's game in Sudan. That's enough for me, I'm off to login to TF1 to watch France-Holland.

By the way, I hope Roy has noticed Ashley Cole has relied on cover from both Sturridge and Sterling to get him out of jail this half (and some poor Danish play). I think the door is ajar for Luke...

And as for our creativity and front play - has there been a shot on target? Anything we have created has been from non-imaginative dead balls (thrown in the box or wild shot from Rooney) and energy - no skill whatsoever. Sturridge plays with no conviction or confidence for England (thus far anyway, cue a goal no doubt).

And Luke picks up the ball deep in his own half and goes on a surging run. He plays a quick one two with Adam and makes it to the by line. A great cross to the far post where Ricky comfortably wins it in the air and knocks it back to JRod who slots it wide of their keeper. Roy gets on the phone and asks how the u21 and U19s played and pencils in another 3 Saints players for Brazil. Then I woke up to find that the dopey t--t has only brought on Luke.

But why are the likes of Rooney and Gerrard still on the pitch. Everybody knows that they are definitely on the plane for Brazil. So why not give a full 45 minutes to players that are not a cert for the world cup.

This is only a friendly so the result doesn't matter. But it's the last friendly before Hodgson has to name his squad. So get a good look at the remaining contenders for a WC place, including our remaining three players.

I should add that I would still be making this comment even if we had no Saints players in this particular squad. My Saints bias is not influencing my comment. I just can't see the point in playing "safely safely" in your last friendly before naming the final squad for Brazil.

Sure it isn't my obvious bias, but I think our lads are actually giving the others confidence to express themselves.

Sadly looks like that's that for Rickie but I don't think Carroll will be going either. Clearly Roy has decided he'll have one central striker and lots of quick wide forwards who can play centrally if needed. So it's Roo, plus the wide guys: Sturridge, Wellbeck (both who could go central if needed), Sterling, Ox, Townsend etc etc. I doubt he'll take another 'big' striker.

I'd be starting with Adam over Wilshere, but think Roy will prefer to go conservative on that one.

I think Roy will risk Luke now because I think he showed a total lack of fear so, I don't think it's a risk. He will also be helped by the fact that Rickie and Adam have already shown that the Saints players are up to it. Cole looked rusty and lacked the puff to get back - you can no longer have that in a full back. No match fitness equals no place in what could be a three match tournament - why bother taking Cole if it's highly unlikely he'll play anyway?

And, yeah, when you think of Rickie's goal vs Scotland and particularly the game when he set up two for Wellbeck, I think he's maybe worth a punt, but then why wouldn't he give him any game time? I can't believe he feels he's seen enough of him to give him a place on the plane.

Roy is fairly consistent though - he tends to dump out the older players when he can (Ferdinand, Terry, Lampard I expect, Cole I expect), which bodes well for Luke, not so for Rickie.

Agree he's been poor, but you can't leave the guy out of the squad and for the first time going into a major tournament he should be fairly fresh as he's going to have far less to think about club wise this season. He's been poor, but you don't totally discard a potential match winner (unless you manage or captain the England cricket team).

Harsh critic says...

"Looking at performances, you would have to be a harsh critic to say anybody played poorly tonight. I've been very happy with the attitude and the desire to get on that plane and grab a shirt" - Roy Hodgson

Got to love the guy though, like any tactless old man he tries to be nice but actually gives away what he's really thinking:

"Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, even Jack Wilshere, all of those came out of the game with credit."

Even Jack Wilshere? Why, was he crap Roy?

He tried to stand up for Cleverley in the week and ended up suggesting people were blaming him totally for Man Utd's bad season.

Not sure his critics quite went that far Roy, but now you come to mention it... although Smalling is quite bad too.
