Kris Boyd couldn't do it in the Championship despite being the most prolific in Scottish Premier League history, and that was only in the last couple of years. The SPL's utter dross now and completely incomparable.

Hooper's still fairly young though as opposed to Boyd when he came down. Anthony Stokes & Samaras have good scoring records at Celtic too and look how poor they were over here, Stokes more so.

Edit: Don't get how Ashley Cole's been picked if senior players were being dropped. We all know he's number one choice and if other players were to get a run out, it'd be the perfect chance for Leighton Baines.

Barry, Downing & Walcott can just fuck off. AOC's definitely overhyped. He's only really produced against us with our shite defence and 10 men. Give him time, but right now it's too soon.

I'd like to have seen Britton get a chance, maybe even Sinclair & Dyer too at Downing & Walcott's expense. With Rooney ill currently and out of the first two games, it's a stupid decision to pick him.

Cahill's played more games than Dawson and Dawson's been rested?! Seriously? Cahill got shown up big time against Napoli the other night, but I guess playing alongside Luiz means you're going to get exposed.

Anyway, the team I'd like to see:

Hart

Richards - Smalling - Jones - Baines

Parker

Cleverley - Gerrard

Welbeck - Bent - Sturridge

Other than that, it looks good. Rooney can drop in the hole to make it 4-3-1-2 as well. In fact, that would work better.
I think Rooney is better as a support striker, rather than in the whole behind 2 strikers. I know it's flexible and positions don't have to be that defined but yeah.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

I think he's a great prospect, but people are going overboard with AOC in terms of his current ability. Not to sound like Gunner, but he was probably Arsenal's worst player against Sunderland.

He ran a long way back for the second goal though to his credit!

First thing I noticed when I looked at that squad. Almost seems like he might want to play Richards at CB for some reason.

Squad is crap. Downing has been trash, and shouldn't be in there over a guy like Sinclair. But hey, at least I'm not English and don't have to care. :balo2

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Downing shouldn't make the Liverpool XI, but will make the England XI. :balo2

Hopefully Downing comes back from international duty too tired to play for a couple of matches too.

Cool Van Basten vid that was on BBC sport site today.

Also I think I must have inspired Downing to that MOTM performance yesterday.
