    Well have to confess to feeling rather dissapointed with the squad, not much sign of a youthful new era. Ok one or two but same old strikers who have failed miserably in the past.

    No West Ham but not sure what Robert Green has to do.....

    What do we think?

    Wha's more disappointing is to look at what could have been out of that lot from a West Ham perspective - Carrick, Ferdinand, Cole, Johnson, and had he been fit, Lampard - all 5 products of the WHU Academy.

    As for Green, he should be in the squad as only James has a better set of Opta stats.
    As for Beckham being omitted, I think that was quite right - gives a chance for someone else to be evaluated in a game that mean s nothing - he'll get his 100th in a more meaningful game.
