Irony being that he is now playing better then he did in the last few seasons at Liverpool.
I believe that Smith and Defoe should be taken ahead of him, but it made me chuckle.
I'm pleased that Green is getting a call-up. I've been a fan of his for a while.
> I think he has been dropped at the wrong time
What - is he not in the penalty area?
A ho ho ho.
Eriksson can defend his shortsightedness by producing all-sorts of figures from Alan Smith's goal-scoring record this season, but, that's still not the real reason. Quite clearly.
If Frank Lampard was still at West Ham, would he be an England regular?
Heskey IS playing better now than he has done for 3 years at Anfield.
There is now law that says David Beckham MUST play the full 90 minutes of each and every game.
Alan Smith's been playing in the same way at United as he has done for the past few years at Leeds. Remember that year they went far into the Champions' League? Look at last season, even when playing midfield. He still went for every ball. He struck when he got even half a chance. Difference was, it was all 'lower-profile'.
Eriksson's starting-eleven is based around the media's favourtie "men".
Always has been, always will be (especially since it never changes!).
His squad is also built up of players the 'papers love to talk about.
He does nothing except take in the cheques - The Sun picks the players for him! It's no wonder we do so badly...!
And, after his bed-hopping antics that were recently released, how long before Wayne Rooney is appointed England captain, since he shares so much in common with his manager, eh??
He has now picked Smith just because he is
> playing for a bigger club than he was in last season.
Yea because 5 goals in 7 games has nothing to do with it either eh? A England striker that can score goals? What next? A right winger that can actually play at big tournaments instead of making lame excuses
> Heskey doesn't need to be dropped, really, if he's already lying
Excellent :) I was thinking exactly that
