He wasn't brought in as a centre back, as they already grabbed Jagielka when Barry/Lampard dropped out. He's a fullback. That said, he's still not the best available player at his position.Seriously, who the fcuk is Martin Kelly ??! There are easily 10 better players at centre back than him ....... this is becoming a farce. At this rate, we'll be lucky to get out of the group .....
The good news is if we even qualify (probably 2nd), we'll look forward to Spain in the 1/4's ........ Awesome.
I heard that Carrick refused to come unless he was guaranteed to start? Kinda shocking if that's true.
There are definitely way too many players from a poor Liverpool side in the squad, but I guess Hodgson is comfortable with them having coached them in the EPL and doesn't have much time to work with the England squad.
