I'm not going to South Africa. So instead I'm gonna try and watch a bit if not all of every game at work, or at home or in a bar or wherever. On the telly. With a beer. And I'm gonna predict who I think is gonna win. And talk about football stuff. So there.

Comparing squads

I selected my 23 back in April. 17 of them will be on the plane.

I think we're a few players light to have a genuine chance of the trophy. We don't have a nailed on No.1 whom we can rely on between the sticks. We can't afford Ashley Cole to get injured. Lampard is having a penalty-taking crisis right at the wrong time. And Rooney and Defoe are far from on top form.

I'm not going to do any Heskey bashing as I reckon he gives us something up front that no other striker does. And yes, that's probably a defender. But seriously, he provides his fair share of assists.

Wouldn't be surprised if Capello starts with just Rooney up front though...
