I have to agree with you Natalya, for me Southgate is over-rated and Ehiogu is very much under-rated. When we were looking for new centrebacks last summer, I was hoping GH would take a look at Ugo, but we got Hyppia instead (and I have to admit I'm very happy with him ) and Henchoz, and the rest is history as they say!
Ugo seems to have that Curse Steve Bruce had throughout his career, commonly known as the best English defender not to play for England. I hope that Ugo gets at least a chance!
Although Ugo is a good defender both him an Barry need Southgate there to keep them all together. When Southgate is not there they seem to be all over the place. People slag Gareth off but he is the perfect professional and all round nice guy. If you watch him in a game he keeps talking and pumping confidence into the team.
Southgate, Ugo, Barry, Merson, Dublin, Wright and James for England!!!!!!!
