Football365's Famous World Cup Ladder

It's been a while and some England players are covering themselves in glory (Lallana) while others falter (Cleverley). So who do we think Roy will take to Brazil?

John Ruddy - Most clean sheets by an English goal keeper in the premier league (9) and he is 4th choice!! I really wonder where some of this stuff gets made up! Plus Redmond should easily be ahead of Zaha in the quick winger bracket, he owned Geal Clichy at the weekend

PS - please never stop putting Phillip at number 50. I sincerely hope 10 years from now baffled readers will be asking quite why the Man U manager is on your Euro 2024 list...

I'm rather torn on this one. Do we take 'effective' players like Henderson, because they run around a lot and press well? Or do we allow for the fact that after 60 mins in the heat those players will be knackered, and take a Thudd, Carrick type midfield to try and keep the ball? Which we're not really very good at.. My expectations are low..

Cleverley is massively lacking confidence. At the moment he's a different player to the one that played in our win against brazil. Unless club form improves you can't justify him starting. Then again gerrard hasn't set the world alight. Is take Henderson because of his energy levels- and let's be honest we aren't going to be on the ball too much. Smalling is fine, he is actually decent at defending. Jones is a really good player don't know why he has been labelled a bad one he must go. Young cannot go. Carrick/wilshere/Henderson is a good combination of midfielders in theory but hasn't been tested

Personally I think England will make more mistakes without John Terry. There was talk about him being persuaded to go to the World Cup. He doesn't have to play in all the games but he is a master at steadying the defence. Taking Luke Shaw would be good for him and England. He is a real talent and if England want a true successor to Cole he should go as should Cole if fit. I would leave Gerrard out, he is too quiet too often for England imo, yes he can get the odd goal but Lampard can do that and more. Is Clyne worth looking at for Rb? Or maybe Richards?

An England team built around the peerless Huddlestone as opposed to the headless Rooney would really be a joy to watch

@editor, I don't know. My best guess is because there might be some homophobic comments. But so what? You allow comments on stories about racism in football, so why not homophobia? And in any case, in the past you've allowed comments on stories relating to gay issues and I've never seen any particularly nasty sentiment being expressed (although perhaps that's because you're screening the worst of it). But even so, surely part of dealing with this issue is revealing the extent to which the problem exists, including among fans who comment on sites like this one.

What does Phil Neville have to do to get a game???

Lambert is a better all round player than Carroll, but there's very few people on earth that are better than Carroll in the air. Having a USP like that helps you get in World Cup squads.

Aaron Lennon is a better footballer than Andros Townsend

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
