"Sadly, football in England has declined since we won the World Cup in 1966. Suddenly we had coaches appearing out of drainpipes and we've got players now who are nowhere near as good as players were in the 1960s and '70s. They're possibly fitter, but that's all."

"It's very important to us that we get some prior experience of the unique cricketing atmosphere in the Caribbean before we go to the World Cup. Although our competitive games in a year's time will all be at the new Warner Park Stadium in St Kitts, we will have some warm-up games in Barbados, and this trip is an ideal way to find out how to play the game in these conditions."

"It finally seems to have dawned on some of the England players that, if they are to beat the likes of Brazil, Germany, Argentina and Italy in a World cup, they need an iron manager to forge them into a team, not a nice guy to massage their inflated egos. The gooey love affair between coaches and players is coming to its inevitable end. Does Eriksson have answers? There are times when you have to wonder if this vague, distant albeit charming figure is really all that interested in finding them."

"I was shocked. But I don't think morale will suffer. The lads always stick together. I don't think there will be a problem with the manager and, even if there was, the players are striving for the same goal ? to bring the World Cup home. I don't think it will have a negative effect. It will have a positive one."

"Whenever you get the chance to represent your country in a World Cup, it's a great honor. It's a chance to show the world what you've got. I'm looking forward to it. I do wish, though, that I would be able to stay here and play with D.C. a little bit more, because this is an important stretch for us right now."

"With the Turin Olympics and the World Cup coming, everyone knows that televisions are being sold by the truckload ... Windows (new operating system) Vista will debut in the later part of the year, so people will want to trade up their computers. It is not a bad situation at all."
