Weakest England Squad Since 1992

It really is depressing. Never can expectations have been so low going into a tournament. This might work in the team's favour, of course, as there'll be no press pressure to win the thing, hopefully. Woy's made his picks and it's fair to say that he hasn't had a bumper cwop (sic) to choose from (enough of that Roy baiting now, he's a fellow Croydon boy, after all).
 But from the relative discomfort of my armchair, I have to say I would have taken five strikers, given Rooney will miss two of our three tournament games (yes, I predict we won't make it through the group stage).
Crouchio would have been in my squad. He's ahead of Defoe and Carroll by my reckoning. Here's the squad, none of which would make the Spain squad, save Rooney perhaps.
Goalkeepers - Joe Hart, Robert Green, John Ruddy.
Defenders - Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Glen Johnson, Phil Jones, Joleon Lescott, John Terry.
Midfielders - Gareth Barry, Stewart Downing, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Scott Parker, Theo Walcott, Ashley Young.
Strikers - Andy Carroll, Jermain Defoe, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck.

The paucity of world class talent in this line up has to be addressed by FA headquarters, but won't be, not while the multicultural Premier League is raking in so much cash.
