England's no.1, England, England's no.1

England's no.1, England, England's no.1

David James has been officially confirmed as England's no.1 this summer...

Well at least he has been issued shirt no.1 so this means he will be the England no.1 at the world cup, right?

Many will feel that being issued the no.1 shirt makes this the case, which I would hope it does. Then again what do squad numbers actually mean these days - although you would 'expect' start the season, or tournament, with what the manager sees as the first choice starting 11 wearing numbers 1-11 really.

Rob Green has been the no.1 for England recently, and is a top keeper but I never fully have that confidence in him.

Joe Hart is an awesome keeper in the making and, as good as I know he already is, left me feeling even more confident in his ability after his display against Japan - he also takes a mean penalty if we needed him in a shoot out, which hopefully we will not!

James is, and always has been for me, the no.1 so it is right that he has got this, assuming this actually means that he is Fabio Capello's no.1...

Agreed, I don't think Mr Capello would have given the shirt to him unless that was his intention; the pressure is right on Jamo to train to make sure he is number one on the team sheet and to perform well enough keep that thought in the managers mind.

The concern for Jamo & all the keepers will be this new ball. It seems to be very erratic in its movement, which in turn may mean more goals & more keeper errors. Let's hope if Jamo is picked it doesn't make a fool out of him & let one of the other keepers in.

Jamo deserves it.

I think he's always been no.1, it's only his niggling injury that cast any doubt over that.

There's no doubt he's the no.1, and i reckon he's going to shine between those posts this world cup and force the fickle press to sing his praises for a change - he deserves it after all and at his age its his last chance. Just hope that matt's fears aren't realised about the ball!
