    What needs to happen is this:

    Get rid of the likes of Lampard, Terry Gerrard etc need to be scrapped from the england team, they are all 30+ or pushing very close to it.

    The younger players like Rooney, Walcott etc need to stay, they are young enough to adapt to the new system.

    Rebuild the team with young fresh players and a new tactical system.

    Remove the payment system for playing for England, you play for pride not for money.

    Start from fresh with a young new squad use the Euro's in 2 years time to blood them in prep for the main tournament in 2014.

    Disease for England manager!

    These are ones I am familiar with and im sure just a sample of many!
    All fair points there chris! My apologies!

    Surley the simple process is to play players where they are used to being played and not because they are such big names. If there is a problem with 3 players , Lampard , Gerrard and Barry and only 2 positions in the centre then why not only play 2 of them. Why is it that we insist on playing gerrard on the left when that is not his natural position. I would have liked to see a natural left sided player who could actually cross the ball.

    Equally why did Bent not get a chance when he is scoring for his club and Heskey was taken even though he was not playing regularly for the Villa.

    England would be better suited to a 4-5-1. They have have decent defensive players, a cracking midfield which would work well in a 4-5-1, and very good strikers who could be fed the ball well.

    Dont apologise lol, I like to debate these things, especially if its something I have a bit of knowledge on, which is rare

    Im a Villa fan and dont even know why he went, apparently hes a great defensive holding midfield target man striker, or something, I still call him the donkey!

    We said it since the competition started - Capello said "I will only take/play those playing regularly for their club and only if they are on form", but when the nut came to crunch he played names. He didn't drop Rooney who has had a mare the whole competition. When he eventually brought Joe Cole on yesterday he put him on the right?! And when we needed to chase the game he swapped a striker for a striker - wow, great attacking tactics there Mr Italy, how on earth did you think them up?!

    Personally, I think a foreigners cap needs to be reintroduced into English football. I think the FA needs a shake up. I think we need fresh legs in a lot of positions. And most of all I think we need an Englishman at the helm, someone like the cockney barrow boy or Roy Hodgson.

    My two cents has now been thrown in the pot!

    I hope Capello stays

    Personally I think the foreign players are good for the league and are masking the fact that English players are just not good enough.

    Currently waiting for the press conference to start.

    Edit: Just walked on stage.

    Go to BBC News to see what is happening.

    Capello may leave?

    I don't think Capello should resign......

    And I hope he doesn't.

    Nothing he has said so far makes me think he's leaving!
