John Terry's future in the England team is under severe threat, according to former Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro.Back to story
At last!! Even as a proud Welshman I wanted England (a home nation) to do well in the World Cup. John Terry has for some time been a disruptive influence at both club and international level. I won't even start on his personal arrogance and lack of morals. The term 'schoolyard bully' immediately springs to mind. I do, in some ways, admire him. You do have to admire the way he portrays himself as a confident, knowledgable and team focussed individual....particularly with so little to back it up!!!! If Fabio decides to make this decision I believe there will be a few relieved people in and around the England camp and maybe, just maybe, the future can be as bright as the Colgate smiles the players fan-sponsored money has bought them. Go for it Fabio....it would be a great decison!!!!

Cannavaro is right NO-ONE is immune from the axe I'm afraid and Terry has completely disrespected Capello. lets bring in Lescott or or Jagielka and move on. Team togetherness & spirit is absolutely essentilal it showed in Rooneys body language that he wasn't happy nor Gerrard or Carragher, England need to stop this elevating of individuals within the team, the team is EVERYTHING first second and last, just speak to someone who knows (Alex Ferguson) He has shipped out the egos over the years no matter how 'invaluable' they have been to the team (Ince, Kanchelskis, Stam, Beckham, Keane, Yorke) the team is is always way more important than any individuals. No future for Lampard as well? wait and see we've got Jack Wishire & Jack Rodwell instead

Spot on. Terry is clearly a disruptive influence, and he needs to take his sense of 'self-importance' elsewhere. If he was half the player he thought he was, he'd still only be a half decent player. His game has plumetted since his off-field personal problems, and his attempts to disrupt the dressing room were the equivalent to footballing suicide. I hope he has played his last game for England. The team will be better off without his malignant influence. He lost the captains' armband and has had an 'agenda' ever since. Bring on some hungry talent who WANTS to play and do their best.

Hi. I believe that Fabio is right to get rid of a few ' big headed players' from the Englamd team. These players aren't good for the national team and just good to play local football. The press and the media are also responsible to make these big headed ' stars ' The salary they earn is also a weapon to make them that arrogant and out of line .The recent increase in Roonies salary is the sort of arrogance by the football bosses to impose their pathetic views on to others that they can do whatever they wish , whether the player is complete waste of space. Roonie was ans is a complete awste , same as Terry. Big foul mouth but no substance. Their life style and the salary they earn are two main reasons as to why they aren't bothered to work hard. and the fake and fictional status that the England team carry has to be addressed as now they are facing competent players on the inetrnational field, not as the 1960's or playing against the socalled 3rd world. Fabio should be given every once os support to set thngs right and engaged new players and get rid of those who thinks that are irreplacable. Robin
