Insider Betting: England to Win the World Cup!

As England's odds lengthen thanks to Wayne Rooney having no working toes (judging by his intelligence you'd have guessed he would have had extra toes), stick a fiver on England to win it. Playing 4-4-1-1 with King or Carrick as a holding midfielder and then in the free role supporting the loan striker you play the PFA Player of the Year, the captain of the current Champions of Europe, the man who has scored two more goals that Rooney this year and according to a Mr. A Regent of Dunfermline "the best passer/crosser England has". What more could you want, four players in one! Do I need to say it's Steven Gerrard? Playing him as a holding midfielder ruins our best player and as for Alan Hansen's idea today "play Cole upfront and Gerrard on the left" - WTF! I think the exertion of beating Everton in the '86 FA Cup Final replay has left his brain starved of oxygen. Go on, what are you waiting for? I'm the one who guaranteed Liverpool will lift the FA Cup next Saturday...
