Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread
You obviously don't understand how the english media works. If Terry was to be dropped there would be an uproar and Ancelotti would get endless hassle from the press. Instead he thinks fuck it, keep the guy in and yes lets just those defenders carry him 50 plus games a season which is exactly what they do.
In England we have to hype up average players to try and convince ourselves that we are a world class team. Whenver we are knocked out of a major international tournament it is never because our players are grossly overrated but rather the manager, or the refs, or too many matches in england or too many injuries or they just can't gel together. What utter bollocks - England's track record in major international tournaments proves that something is wrong with the coaching system because they don't pick players based on skill like other nations such as Brazil, Argentina and Spain..
Terry is a great header of the ball and that is it. He is slow as shit and can't read the game well. Top strikers especially the quick ones frequently embarass him but whenver this happens the media hush hush the matter and instead massively emphasise all the good things he does to try and make people forget about his obvious flaws.
Seems to me like you're the one who doesn't know what he's talking about. I understand exactly how players like Terry come to be called world class in this country and it has little to do with their ability with a football.
