Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

think people are going a bit over the top with the criticism of the england performance. This was a team which consisted of players who havent really played together, and had very little international experience. Hopefully capello doesn't go back to the older players, it would be good to see the likes of henderson and carroll keep the starting places, along with some players coming in like Wilshere.

I think it shows more about Blanc that he was able to get an absolutely shambolic France to co-operate and win against a top team in a short space of time.

Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

Didn't see the England game so can't really comment on the performance. It's pretty much a pointless game at this time of the year with no game until March. It would've made more sense to have a friendly before the Montenegro game to make up for missing a qualifier.

Some of the choices in the squad turned me off too, like Carlton Cole who's done nothing for 12/18 months over Kevin Davies. Despite his age, if Capello picked him for the last squad, he should've been in this one based on his form, especially compared to Cole's. It was good that some kids like Gibbs, Henderson & Carroll got a run out against a good French team though.

It would've been good if Ashley Young had got a chance over Walcott who's not played a minute in Arsenal's last three games. Seeing Barry get the nod ahead of Scott Parker makes me sick too. What has Parker got to do to get in the squad, and how much worse will Barry have to play not to get his place?

I couldn't agree more. Davies looked pretty lively against Montenegro, he's been in good form in the Prem, what possible reason is there to NOT put the guy in there? Carroll impressed for what I saw, though. He wins a lot of balls and isn't half bad at running at defences either.

And God yes. What the hell does Scott Parker have to do to get in the England team? His passing and dribbling ability is just too good to be ignored now. He's been brilliant every time I've seen him, he has brilliant vision, passing, creativity, he rarely gives the ball away... then there's Barry, who barely played a decent pass in the 45 minutes I could bear to watch last night. He just kept overdoing it or playing it in the wrong direction. Parker deserves that place, but he's consistently ignored. What a joke.

There were sparks for England during the first 45 minutes I watched last night, but otherwise it was pretty abysmal. I don't really know what we were expecting, a fairly strong French side against Capello's experimental XI, it was always going to go to France tbh.

Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

I still have no idea what Capello sees in Barry he has done nothing since his move from Villa and i would much rather see Parker get a chance than play Barry.

Re: Friendlies & Euro 2012 Qualifiers Discussion Thread

Barry is quite possibly the most overrated sack of sub-par shit I've seen play for England in god knows how long. Michael Carrick, Tom Huddlestone and Scott Parker all are in much better form, and are just simply better players, yet can't get a look in right now coz Barry's likely blowing old Fabio to keep his spot. Can't think of any other explanation why this horribly overrated player manages to play for England.

I don't know, I didn't see the game, but England always bang on about how great they are.
