    Nolan - No brain

    Kevin Nolan, bless him, not the brightest of football players is he?

    He said, and I quote, "To be quite honest, I am pretty sure I would have broken into the England squad by now if I was playing for Manchester United or Liverpool." ( http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/5319122.stm )

    I think someone forgot to tell 'Kevin' that he'd have more chance of getting into the England squad if he played for Chelsea. After all, Chelsea have John Terry (Cpt), Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Ashley Cole, Wayne Bridge, Shawn Wright-Philips and Glen Johnson.

    And on another matter, is it right for the BBC to be spending tax payer's money on employing someone who is as misguided and uneducated who is using the BBC website to self-publicise himself?

    Talk about an embarassment.

    • What makes him so sure that united or liverpool would have him. Based on his performance against watford he'd be lucky to represent england as a ball boy.

    • is this the lampard who had a great world cup and wright phillips who sits on the bench every week

    • Hmm, let me see. rio ferdinand, gary neville, wayne rooney, wes brown, steven gerrard, peter crouch, too name but a few. so, not bad thinking kevin,

        Well didnt they do well in the World Cup!! Same old Rooney oOoo oOo OOOOO OOO IM ANGRY!! I THINK I'LL STAMP ON SOMEONE!!! Hmm... i wonder what might happen if i do this?)

        Ok so.. Rio - Rocks! Neville - nothing special, Rooney - psycho genius, Wes Brown - nothing special, Gerrard - occasion genius, when he can be arsed, Crouch - Lanky git, but good on the ball (If he wasnt on the World Cup team, maybe the manager would've had a decent strategy!)

        Personally i think the England squad needs a complete re-shuffle! Give some players who are good at football a chance on the team, not just the players who can afford to pay the England Manager to get a place in the team.

        Now come on, could someone one please tell me how the hell did Owen get in the squad, he was injured, played sod all football, got on the team.... was absolutely useless then CRRRRAAACK, his knee gave way and off home he went. Now wouldn't it have been a little more sensible to put say.... Nolan in his place, same position, fit, actually played football that season.

        Of course not, Owen had to go because he was great in a previous World Cup, nothing to do with the fact that he's been #$%$ ever since.

        Personally i like Nolam, yes I support Bolton (although my home team is actually Man U), he has lots of energy and usually plays well. With regards to the comment that he played bad against Watford.... id like to remind you of the World Cup.... where most of our team played like a bunch of retards!

        Give Nolan a chance i say, what harm can it do!?
