Capello Looks To Manchester’s Kids

England Vs France: Friendlier Than The Entente Cordiale

Newcastle’s Andy Carroll, who recently admitted to an assault charge, has won his fight to start for England, and will be one of three players getting their first ever international start.

John Terry, Ashley Cole and ....

England Vs Montenegro: A Game That Calls For Two Captains’ Performances

Capello Unveils His Striker For The Future

  The future’s bright; the future’s…Kevin Davies? Hang on, that can’t be right. No wait, it is.

England Vs Bulgaria: Anyone Fancy A Game?

If you’re off to Wembley on Friday night, please bring your boots. You may just be needed.

Capello’s Cut And Shunt Squad Reveals He’s Making It Up As He Goes Along

“As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool repeats his folly,” (Proverbs 26:11).   Would you buy a used car from Fabio Capello? You may like the idea of a sporty Italian motor, but what if it’s been welded together from bits of old traffic accidents? If the answer is still yes, then I think I’ve got something round the back that’s in your price range, me old ....

Pragmatist Capello To Make Exception For Barry

Fabio Capello is a hard-line, no nonsense, man of principle, apart from when it suits him not to be. And his potential willingness to gamble on the fitness of midfield favourite Gareth Barry is further evidence of a pragmatic approach to squad selection that contradicts his previous rhetoric in favour of doing the right thing for England.   The Italian has always spoken of the importance ....

Capello Hints At Team Changes

  Fabio Capello refuses to tinker about too much with his winning team. After all, why would he?

John Terry A Doubt

Bolton’s Gary Cahill has been called in to the England squad as cover at centre back for both Wes Brown and, more worryingly, John Terry, both of whom picked up knocks in training.
