Over paid , Premier league players , and they were ****. No idea , no passion , no spirit and worse of all they did not even look like scoring. We were slow on the attack and when we were going forward we looked lost. Drew against the yanks and now cant even beat the Algerians. We dont deserve to go through with these so called big name players.

I can't believe we only managed a draw against a s*^t team we should easily have beaten.

I'm ashamed to call myself Algerian.

Let's face it, England's over paid and over rated players are made to look good week in week out in the Premier League by the foreign players who accompany them.

When 'Lamps' scores a hat full against the likes of Wigan and Hull (no disrespect to these teams but...) our media and commentators ramp up the hype and says he is world class. The same goes for the others.

Technically our recent players have been far weaker than the South Americans and have possessed the mental strength of the Italians or Germans. Why is this? Personally I balame a 'taking part that counts' culture and the fact that most of the current England squad are celebrities first and footballers second.

After this WC is done the entire squad bar James and Barry should be dropped and a new crop brought in, starting with Adam Johnson. I actually think there are better (or at least more determined) English players in the lower leagues. For a start, Lambert is far better than Heskey and would have buried that opportunity against the US the other night.

I'd like to know what Joe Cole has done to upset Capello.

That game was crying out for someone with a football brain, vision for a through ball and the ability to beat a man and draw defenders out of position, yet he was overlooked for SWP, Defoe and Crouch.

The problem at the moment is that there are managers who won't give English players a go- Wenger, Allardyce and Bruce seem to be looking at cheap foreigners all the time. Are they any better? we'll never know. I do know that there seems to be a massive problem in the England squad.

Well I have seen traffic cones on the training pitch with more ball control. The ball just seemed to bounce of the players, especially Rooney and Heskey.
