by choosing John Terry as captain.
The bookies favourite, Terry, is the only choice for England captain at this point.
England always do better with the captain leading from central defence and Terry is an excellent leader for Chelsea & England whereas his main competitor for the armband, Steven Gerrard, is an inspirational leader for his club Liverpool he certainly hasn’t been for his country.
If dropping deep to aimlessly batter balls well over the heads of the front men is the criteria for England captain then they might has well kept Beckham in the job, and I don’t know as some “experts” say that he’s assured of his place.
The other two “candidates” Lampard and Red Nev, well they were the equivalent of the Monster Raving Looney Party candidates you see standing behind re-elected big name politicians at elections.
Now we just have to wait and see what McClaren’s first squad consists of, we know it won’t have little kiddy Walcott or Bent who are in the U21 squad but the thing is Beckham’s only retiring speech has been about the captaincy and not from international football altogether.
If McClaren was going to drop him you’d think he’s tell David so he could announce his standing down before the embarrassment of being canned, you know the way Robson didn’t with Keggy.
Well with talk of the ginger one wanting to replace Beckham with Aaron Lennon during the World Cup you can only wait and hope…still he was with Sven a long time and doesn’t like the word “entertainment”.
