I like the head-to-head tie breaker rule more than straight goal difference

Ashley left out of the England squad according to the BBC. Kind of feel sorry for him, considering everything he's given to England.

Shola Ameobi sent off for asking "Are you going to send me off now" according to reports.

Pretty amusing

Motd say we've made an official bid of 27m for Luke Shaw this evening.

Lot of money for a kid full back.

Sure theguardian have said that as far back as March. Apparently Moyes had him convinced to sign for united. Plus Chelsea wouldnt match the transfer or contract offer

well if he's at United for similar length of time as Rio or Rooney its not overly expensive. But its a ridiculous amount for a left back of any age. it's only coz he's english. He'd want to be getting at least 10 assists a year to justify it

Jeez, Barca drew with Elche so Atletico woulda won the title with a win at home against Malaga......and they drew 1-1. Real Madrid coulda made up serious ground and won the title if Barca beat Atletico on the last day (and they won as well). And they lost 2-0 to Celta Vigo.

*EDIT* I see Rob and Biggy had this covered already

I can see why Hodgson chose Shaw over Cole but I'd still consider Cole one of the best lbs in the world. Picking a young lad over him so that he can get experience kind of suggests Hodgson considers the World Cup a foregone conclusion.

Well Hodgson and the FA have said that already. They're not really expecting to get out of the group

They most likely won't, but that's a poor attitude for England's manager have. If their players played as well as they could, I wouldn't say decent results against Italy and Costa Rica are beyond them. This is probably the most cohesive (expected) squad England have had in a while. England players seem to have a bit of an inferiority complex, and I don't think acting the underdog will help.
