    Rooney Ban

    You've a good memory. SB, though slightly selective if you don't mind me saying so! Crosses, passes and assists go unnoticed. The saviour bit was was the winning late free-kick for us to qualify against Greece was it? But Becks is one of those you either rate or hate, I'm afraid. There was a time when I didn't like him simply because Darren Anderton used to get booed by the England fans because they thought he was a keeping the young DB out, but it turned out they played very well together! But I've always thought he was one of England's better players, and Rooney should be as well.I wonder why it is that the likes of Rooney, Lampard, Gerrard, etc. can play so well consistently for their clubs but seem to freeze for their country, because not many could deny they are all superb individual players! Any theories? I don't think it's because they're not interested in playing for England, or else they could have all taken the Scholes/Shearer option! Interesting team selection, SB...very new-look England!
