Re: International Matches Discussion Thread
Defoe shouldn't have started. They keep sending long balls to him and he is 5 foot 7... This is not a criticism of him, we're just not playing in a style in which he can effective so I don't know why he was picked.
Cleverly is going to get shit on for his performance but he is being played out of position. Despite being a Man Utd fan I've never been a fan of Carrick and he has been awful this match. Swap him for Banies, put Cleverly in the centre and that should at least sort some problems out.
The only players playing well are Jags, Cole and Hart. Why Hodgson keeps playing Johnson I'll never understand. Milner on the right doesn't work either. His team selections are terrible and the more games I see the more I understood why Liverpool fans hated him.
