If I was Sven, I'd have 19 definites by now:

Keepers: Paul Robinson, David James,
Defenders: Gary Neville, Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Jamie Carragher, Ledley King, Wayne Bridge
Midfield: David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Jermaine Jenas, Michael Carrick, Shaun Wright-Phillips
Strikers: Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney, Peter Crouch

So who else goes? Is there anyone else I haven't got below?

Keepers: Robert Green, Chris Kirkland
Defenders: Sol Campbell, Luke Young, Paul Konchesky, Wes Brown, Jonathan Woodgate, Glen Johnson
Midfield: Phil Neville, Kieran Richardson, Stewart Downing, Scott Parker, Owen Hargreaves
Strikers: Darren Bent, Jermain Defoe, Andrew Johnson

ps. At this stage I'd add the following 3 (fitness permitting on all 23)

Chris Kirkland - Champions League experience & when fit a very good keeper
Luke Young - Filled in well in Neville's absense, no problem as back-up
Kieran Richardson - Like Cole & SWP, offers something very different in midfield if required.
Jermain Defoe - Bent didn't little to impress last night & rather than look for something different, I think we need straight forward back-up for Owen (at the moment we have 3 very different strikers) & offers more all round game than Johnson..

Strikers: Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney, Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe

That's who I think he'll pick. Frankly, I don't think Campbell should be anywhere near the squad; his time has passed.

I'm not Bolton or Fat Sam's biggest fan, but I really do feel Kevin Nolan has a strong case for inclusion in the squad...
