According to pretty much every paper today. Sol particularly. James should really, REALLY be England No.1 though.
but man, you've gotta love them sponsorship deals...
your never too sure when his form will dissapear again.
pick him when he's on top of the sodding world. i.e now
who effectively COMMAND an atmosphere of dread, inevitable disaster and clumsiness, and who although I love them both dearly and know they are both fantastic almost all the time, they have an unbelievable capactiy to turn into dog shit once their weakness is exposed. Unfortunately, being a goalkeeper, when you weakness is dealing with crosses (James) or coping with shots from distance (Robinson), then as a fan you can do nothing but feel sick everytime the opposition get near your goalmouth.
I have to put up with this all season. IF Robbo loses his England No 1 shirt, please do not give it to someone equally flawed-genius-like such as David James. I've had enough.
Although I think David James is more of a 'flawed genius' than Robinson. Who's just a bit shit.
they really are both brilliant shot stoppers, they just have such phenomenally obvious achillies heels in their game!
When Robinson didn't even seem to be one of the best shot stoppers in the league.
BUT for a large part of that he was without his captain and main centre back. It took a little while for Michael Dawson to take control and Robbo was a lot more exposed than any of the teams above or around us. He still kept us in a fair number of games. Sometimes his positioning is a bit rank, but that seems to have only crept in this last year, so I'd imagine he can iron it out again. I hope he does cause I like him. He clearly loves playing for his country and his club.
are usually poor at commanding their box.
like central defenders who have to make repeated last ditch tackles are usually poor readers of the game..
yes to sol because when fit, is a top class centre back
Yes to James because laust september, he refused to give interviews to sky until december because that was when they said they could fix his dish!
Still David Marshall >>>>>>>> David James
Mark Beeney>>>>>>>>>>David Marshall
Andy Marshall >>>>>>>> David Marshall
on the bus. I hope Carragher tells McClaren where to stick his England place. Ideally Sol should be partnering Rio against Germany, but I have a sneaking suspicion it'll be Wes Brown.. As for James as Number 1 - without doubt.
because he will start if Terry is out.
he is fit or he will start? Be clear bontch.
thus I don't think he'll start.
I love Wes, really I do, and I do think he's a terrific defender that defnitely deserves his place at Old Trafford, but there's always that chance he'll cock something up royally when playing center back and look like a twerp.
Then again, he works well with Rio.
all his reasons for leaving were totalliy valid and it is Mclarens fault for being a stupid rubbish manager.
Also on a non-England note http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11095_2645379,00.html
Ferguson just give up and stop being a nobhead.
far from being patriotic, playing for your country should not been seen as a right, it should be more of an honour, yes he may feel that he has been left out unfairly but it just shows what playing for england really means know.
anyways who cares we are crap.
Ledley King picked ahead after a season out, all the young players being picked ahead of him.
He doesn't say it but Wes Brown has been played out of position just so Carragher doesn't play it's stupid.
it is stupid. Say what you want about Carragher, but I think he's been pretty steady at centre half over the last 2 or 3 years for Liverpool and deserves a lot better. He should tell McClaren to fuck right off, he doesn't owe him anything.
i beleive he should play also, i just think he should perhaps realise how many people would love to be in the position he is. i mean im probably the 5 millionth choice centre back
going to major competitions but not playing, doing a lot of extra work, shortening your career just to be 4 or 5th choice behind at least two people you are more proven and probably better than.
the point. If I was 29 and asked to haul my ass to Russia just to sit in the stand again on a midweek trip I'd be pretty pissed off as well.
and offer your services.
then tell him to fuck off after he tells you're in but on the bench. that would be good.
I was a more then a little shocked. Our strikers might not be that good but surely we aren't that desperate...
