Recommended Posts

With Roy Hodgson set to name his 23 man squad for Euro 2012 on 16th May, I thought I'd create a VT England Euro 2012 thread.

So, post the squad that you'd take, not the squad that you think Hodgson will take.

Here's mine:

GK: Joe Hart

GK: John Ruddy

GK: Rob Green

DF: Kyle Walker

DF: Micah Richards

DF: Ashley Cole

DF: Leighton Baines

DF: Joleon Lescott

DF: John Terry

DF: Gary Cahill

DF: Phil Jones

MD: Scott Parker

MD: Steven Gerrard

MD: Gareth Barry

MD: Ashley Young

MD: James Milner

MD: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin

MD: Theo Walcott

FW: Wayne Rooney

FW: Darren Bent

FW: Daniel Sturridge

FW: Andy Carroll

FW: Grant Holt

Tin hat on........

Can't be bothered picking the whole squad so I'll list probable inclusions who I don't want to see:

Gerrard, Lampard, Terry and Carroll (I may add to this list).

Lampard and Gerrard should be no where near the england side

Give youth a chance please..... I do not want to see us revert back to the tortoise and the hare formation that we seen against Germany in the WC and see us get outpaced for 90 mins Barry is slow enough as it is

You do know the tortoise won in the end.

They shouldn't be in the same side together, but i think they remain the 2 best CM options available, along with possibly Parker. I'd certainly rather have Lampard on the bench than someone like Barry (for example).

For me

GK: Joe Hart

GK: Ben Foster (would tell him to get out of retirement already, even if just for this tournament!)

GK: Scott Carson/whoever

DF: Kyle Walker

DF: Ashley Cole

DF: Leighton Baines

DF: Joleon Lescott

DF: Rio Ferdinand (leave Terry at home)

DF: Gary Cahill

DF: Chris Smalling (can cover CB & RB, to save a spot for extra midfielder)

MD: Scott Parker

MD: Frank Lampard (done much more than Gerrard the last 2 years)

MD: Gareth Barry

MD: Paul Scholes (a regressive choice but he is fit, on form & all the good young CM options like Wilshere, Cleverley, McEachran are injured/not ready)

MD: Ashley Young

MD: James Milner

MD: Adam Johnson (don't think Ox is quite ready, Johnson good impact player)

MD: Theo Walcott

MD: Aaron Lennon

FW: Wayne Rooney

FW: Danny Welbeck (don't think Bent will be fit enough)

FW: Daniel Sturridge

FW: Andy Carroll (found form at right time)

Hart

Walker-Ferdinand-Lescott-Cole

Parker-Scholes

Lennon-Young-Walcott

Welbeck

Rooney in for Welbeck/Lennon/Walcott when available.

But Carroll's hitting form, and he's a hugely different option that Wellbeck.

Wellbeck is just a less good sturridge or Defoe. Carroll would give us a different option, which is key.

Carroll or Crouch have to go
