... Because everyone thinks they know better, and, in Fabio Capello's case, most of us truly seem to.
What makes perfect sense to us, the loyal audience, is an idea that has probably not even crossed his mind as a possibility (think bringing Emile Heskey on at 4-1 down to Germany).
Yes we 'hammered' Bulgaria last Friday, but that barely papers over the cracks the World Cup highlighted.
Personally, I'd give Rooney a kick up the arse and drop him. He's been too useless for too long, and Peter Crouch has been incredibly underrated as of late. This is coming from a Man Utd fan, too.
IN the midfield, I like Milner, and Lennon, too. Both are fast, attacking, and can ably cross a ball. Would it also hurt too much to try and play without both Gerrard AND Lampard? Otherwise, Carrick over Barry and Beckham can watch from his old folks' home.
In defence, we missed Ferdinand and no-one else ever looked up to scratch. Upson/Dawson/Lescott etc lack so much big-match experience... They looked weak. King is a crock and Carragher is too old and too slow. So here... I don't have any answers!
