The demise of David Beckham

Well the sport pages are full of David Beckham's demise, along with his apparent exclusion from future England squads. I believe that Steve McClaren has made the right decision, his best days were clearly behind him and new blood needed to be brought into the team. Our dismal performance at the World Cup showed that change was needed and it clear that England need to move on from the disastrous Sven Goran Eriksson era.

In terms of the new captain, I would have preferred to have seen Stevie Gerrard appointed as captain, but then again I am biased in that respect as a Liverpool supporter and John Terry is not a bad choice. Both in my view are a vast improvement on David Beckham who was never captain material and both have performed admirably in their roles as club captains.
