England NT Call-ups

Steve McClaren has made his England Call-ups and i can't help but laugh.

Robinson (Tottenham), James (Portsmouth), Carson (Liverpool, on loan at Aston Villa), Richards (Manchester City), Brown (Manchester United), Ferdinand (Manchester United), Terry (Chelsea), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Campbell (Portsmouth), Taylor (Newcastle), Neville (Everton), Shorey (Reading)

Beckham (LA Galaxy), Gerrard (Liverpool), Lampard (Chelsea), Joe Cole (Chelsea), Wright-Phillips (Chelsea), Carrick (Manchester United), Barry (Aston Villa), Downing (Middlesbrough), Dyer (West Ham), Hargreaves (Manchester United)

Smith (Newcastle), Owen (Newcastle), Crouch (Liverpool), Bent (Tottenham), Johnson (Everton), Defoe (Tottenham)
Paul Robinson? Paul freaking Robinson?!!! Those of you who read this blog know how i feel about him.
I'm glad to see David James in the squad he had a great season with pompey and he is solid, but he is not the future of England he is 38 years old.

Beckham?... seriously? Becks has a nagging ankle injury he did play the full 90 minutes against NY and he did score but its not fair to a player like David Bentley who IS the future of England (i know what he did with the under-20 was fucked up but he is a good player and he is young, he deserves the start).
Beckham should not go in respect to the MLS fans who have been waiting to see him.

Hargreaves? LMFAO! he's injured!!! and has been injured for the last couple of months!!!! you have to be kidding me.

Owen? whatever... he hasn't played a full 90 minutes for Newcastle in ages.
Some of these picks are a joke.

I am glad to see Nicky Shorey in the squad though.

UPDATE-Gerrard, Campbell, Hargreaves and Bent have pulled out of the England squad.
I will update later on the weekend results.
