8 out of 11!


As some of you already have pointed out: There were EIGHT (if you include John Terry) - former or present - West Ham players on the field for England, when they (in their half) were able to beat Holland by 2-0 (well it ended 2-2):
  
Green, Johnson, Ferdinand, Terry, Carrick, Lampard, Defoe and Carlon Cole.

 Has that ever happened? I doubt it. Very impressive. 
Could we please buy Milner, Wright-Phillips and (well maybe not) Ashley Cole please. Our Cole - Carlton - had a terrific game and would certainly be prefered by Capello for a spot in South africa now, before names like Crouch and Heskey. 
Keep up the good work! Start this Saturday please!

I agree Carlton was impressive & Rio still has his old fault of being a sleep at times - whats he on ? Maybe very expensive grass!

Green looked at home and should keep his place.

Or too cheap!

It is impressive.

What would really have been impressive is if we could have held on to some more of these.

I must admit to having a hard time to see Terry as one of our own.
I'd trade this kind of success for success on the pitch any day.
