Apparently, there are negociations to try to arrange a friendly at the end of May between England and Australia.

Yeah and I remember the comment from the Swede sometime later

"If I'd know Australia were going to take the game so seriously, we wouldn't have played them"

I hope we do play. We'll get snapped, but it'll be fun watching Grella against Gerrard.

Personally, I think its an amazingly stupid idea to come all that way to play a friendly. Hopefully, Capello will put an end to this idea.

If England do come, I would imagine they would look to play at least 2 games so it may be a 3-way mini tournament.

I certainly wouldn't imagine a full strength side would come over - I would imagine it will mainly consist of 'B' squad players.

You seem to like nicknames, does Capello deserve one?

Not at the moment. The nicknames are awarded to those who deserve to be ridiculed.

Capello deserves the utmost respect for his track record so far. If he can't get England to the level they should be at, no-one can.

what do you think. Like brazil, argentina league. At the moment were more like andorra league

We should be at a level where we are hot favorite everytime to win the world cups and euros.

But capello said he wont favour any players and there will be a clean slate for all players to impress - which is the most sense an england manager has made in nearly a decade probley.

Capello's the godfather

he's the main man now not players like gerrard lampard or terry

cant wait to see what happens if (when) he drops gerrard or lampard

i dont think he'll be for a pointless game against australia

he'll want a serious game so that he can see what he's got (or not)

It makes sense what ScottyBoy is sayin, if Capello is able to knock John Terry or Frank Lampard back down to earth, and take both of there footballing egos out of the way he should great results with England.
