Re: International Matches Discussion Thread
On form, not in great form. He's played well. Played really well against Sunderland, you'd have to watch the full 90, and almost scored a brilliant goal, inches away. He was good against Arsenal, a bit wasteful, but so were we on the whole, and Carroll wasn't with it. Downing again could have had a goal off a Carroll knock down, was ruled out for a nothing "foul" on an Arsenal defender. Then against Bolton he was good. Assists and goals aren't absolutely everything, he's still been playing well and has put in some great crosses that should have led to something. His link up play with Enrique has been good too. Even his last game playing for anyone that wasn't us, he was again very good and scored a great goal. You just don't rate the guy.
