That's how it's always appeared to me too. Capello has never liked Cole - probably because he likes to dribble without simply relying on pace and isn't great defensively. Joe Cole should have been used more at the World Cup. There wasn't a single English player who player at that tournament who could trap a ball, let alone dribble it. Cole had a disastrous season at Liverpool, but they ve written him off too quickly having rarely given him chances playing in a stable side. He was looking good in pre season from what i saw.
