Capello MUST Play Hart, Barry & SWP

Capello MUST Play Hart, Barry & SWP

England's final World Cup group match against Slovenia on Wednesday afternoon is a must win game for the Three Lions or its toddle-pip, cheerio and bye-bye for Fabio Capello's side.

But surely Manchester City's trio, Joe Hart, Gareth Barry and Shaun Wright - Philips must be part of the Italian managers starting line-up?

We wait and see - in the meantime, Chelsea and former England Captain, John Terry talks to the Football Association FA TV ahead of the crucial midweek game.

SWP, when he came on against Algeria was far more effective than Lennon. He produced better crosses and contributed more - simples!

Don't talk balls. David James was England's best player against Algeria. SWP's not international class. It has to be said. Play a 4-3-3, ditching the big man up top.

Think we are being a bit over City biased here - I believe Hart should have started but once he didn't and James played last match and didn't do anything wrong it beggars belief to change the goalkeeper for a third match. Gareth Barry is a definite to play but I personally would like to see Joe Cole introduced instead of the convential wing play that both SWP and Lennon and Milner shows.

Cole plays on the left... Different position to SWP. Lennon was anonymous- hence SWP coming on who only faired slightly better in all honesty. But I do concurr Adam Johnson should have gone.

Barry - Yes. But largely because we have no other defensive midfielder. Hart - I would have started him in the pre tournament friendlies and kept him for the WC proper, even having a handful of games experience would have been better than nothing, but I wouldn't drop him in the deep end in a game we have to win now, following two pathetic team performances with the whole country starting to lose any faith in the side. He's definitely England's most talented keeper by a mile though. But SWP? I would have take Adam johnson, Walcott and just about anyone else ahead of him, the lads *****e. For Slovenia I'd go with James, Johnson, Terry, Dawson, A.Cole, Lennon, Gerrard, Barry, J.Cole, Crouch, Rooney.

I fully agree with Wswilly3. Barry was the standout player VS Algeria and a surefire starter for the next match, but David James didn't do anything wrong and it's madness to drop another keeper at this stage. Hart can rightly feel aggrieved that Green was picked ahead of him in the first match, but I think it might do Hart more harm than good to throw him in at this stage. I haven't seen anything from SWP to suggest that he would do anything better/different than Lennon. Joe Cole offers a different dimension to both of them, and he would be my first choice.
