    My prediction is England losing in the quarters to Spain or Brazil

    I think we look OK, plenty of positives.. I'd rather another few friendlies and play our first 11, but we look fluid enough. The defence worries me a lot. We can score goals.

    Trevor Francis made a good point (for once), for all the talk of Gerrard being this new holding player, is he really? Liverpool had a horrific defensive record so it didn't work that well so its early to say he's proven in that role.

    We'll see, Uruguay will possibly be without Suarez.. Italy are beatable, we just need to cut out Pirlo, let him play and we lose.

    Just seen England score from last night (0-0) against 10 men for last 30mins

    Lets just face it, we will struggle at the WC. (book of excuses will be out AGAIN)

    I would dare bet our 23 squad has the highest wage bill of all.

    I thought England played quite well in the second half and kept their cool against a Honduran side who either didn't understand the word 'friendly' or were taking back handers from Uruguay and Costa Rica to try and take out as many England players as they could before the WC
