Your views on James Goldmans 23- man squad in yesterdays LiteSport... I like the team and think a couple of wild cards are required, although Gibbs and Owen are questionable. JF Thank you for being one of the few to realise that SWP and Carrick are totally out of their depth when they put an England shirt on. Anon At last, someone has realised we need more than four strikers at the World Cup. Lets hope Capello sees Svens errors! Anon Goldman picks six up front as well as six at the back. What is he playing, some screwed-up Premier Manager 98? G Taylor Whats perverse about not taking Walcott? What makes Owen the best finisher around? Watch the matches next time around. Anon Just ask my girlfriend, much to her annoyance, I watch every game JG To be considered for publication, texts must be submitted with name and address or postcode.

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite Tresco has all our support, says SolankiVIKRAM SOLANKI has assured Marcus Trescothick he will receive support from players in every county after the troubled Somerset opener flew home from the Cham- pions League Twenty20 in India today. Trescothick, first hit by depression on Englands tour of India in 2005-06, has suf- fered a recurrence of his stress problems. He announced his international retirement last year after getting only as far as the air- port before Somersets pre-season tour. His latest setback came despite having his wife with him in India, and Solanki, the Professional Cricketers Association chair- man, said he was ready to provide any sup- port Trescothick required. Solanki said: I hope he is now back with his family, where he is comfortable, and I wish him well for a speedy recovery. Whatever help he might require, the PCA will be very willing to help. Its just a ques- tion of what sort of help Marcus requires. There is counselling if that is what is needed. Certainly there is always someone on the end of the phone if it is needed. Were a pretty close-knit unit around county cricketandImsuretherewillbenoshortage of people on hand to help. Trescothicks former England team-mate Shaun Udal told Sky News: Its obviously a real problem. He had his family with him as well so it must be horrific for him. Hes a wonderful guy. Hes a true team player and hed do anything to help you out. Its a real shame. Hed obviously realised he cant do it anymore. It is a shame. The IPL beckons nowadays, and theres no better Twenty20 opener. Hes missed out on a lot of opportunities, and the games poorer for that, thats for sure. Trescothick made 14 from 12 balls against Deccan Chargers in his sides opening game but added just three against Trinidad & Tobago. The Sabres face South Africas Diamond Eagles without him in their first game of the Super Eight stage today.
