i am deeply disappointed with capellos decision to leave out becks for upcoming match against switzerland. his reason was simply bcoz he has other options who he feels deserve to be appointed and 100% match fit. becks as we know hasnt had any offcial match since october 07. anyway, capello has hinted that becks still has a chance to prove himself as capello is ready to pick becks back in the squad when hes ready and 100% match fit and that means he has to wait until MLS season is starting. but it wont guarantee becks inclusion in the first squad. he has to, yet again, wait for capellos view about MLS league which many people regard it as a lower level compared to european football. well, i am devastated but becks has ample time to give his best for his team. if hes not picked, he already has 99 caps under his belt. not many players have the privilege to do so. he has to move on if lets say capello disagree with us, becks fans. whenever england facing trouble, becks has always been the scapegoat. perhaps, for the first time in many years becks will finally have his days off the headlines, from football perspective anyway. i understand he will not be playing for england for the rest of his life but, there it is. im gutted all the way to timbuktu. another article from skysport website (thx to beckham-fans online) noting arsenal players response after capellos announcement of his squad this week. enjoy...

Cesc hits out at Becks axe
Gunners star says Beckham should have won 100th cap

Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas has hit out at Fabio Capello's decision not to include David Beckham in England's squad against Switzerland.

The former England captain currently sits on 99 caps for his country and had hoped to use this month's friendly at Wembley to join an elite club.

However, with LA Galaxy in their close season, Capello has opted to omit the 32-year-old for his squad due to lack of match fitness and sharpness.

Beckham had been training with The Gunners in a bid to win a place in the squad and Fabregas believes it is a shame his ability has been overlooked.


"It's a shame you know because he's been training with us for a month now," Fabregas told Sky Sports.

"He's been working hard and it's a shame.

"I think there should have been a little more respect and the honour of 100 appearances given to him.

"Not a lot of people so do it, so it's a bit of a shame."
