Its on the plastic, no changes...http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=471056&cc=5901 Might be a blessing in disguise with all the rain they are having.

But with half a million applying for tickets http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=471057&cc=5901 for a 74,000 capacity, how many will end up on the black market for the game? 70,000 showed up on Monday to buy the 6,500 available at the stadium, I think I'll take a gander at Ebay.....I expect to see about 50,000 England fans and 10,000 Russia fans in the stadium...

Team news....Luke Young called up to replace Ashley, Terry expects to be fit. With Young being a right back, will he start Lescott on the left or drop in Phil Nev? Bet they wish they could still call on Carragher. Micah Richards might be held as cover for Terry. Meanwhile, all the talk is still on that bloody pitch.
