Again he has been left out of the 'provisional' England squad, with the likes of Jermaine Jenas in place of him.

Carrick was a key player for the champions, Manchester United, this season and also in the champions league - with the reward of a new contract.

Gareth Barry will never be a 'winner' in my eyes. He is nothing more than a medicore left-over from the McLaren revolution and was shown up against Croatia in my opinion. The amount of times Modric, Eduardo, Petric (And even Olic) found space in a key area of the midfield was countless.

What does Fabio Capello have against Carrick? A Real Madrid fan here suggested that Capello only likes hard-working midfielders such as Diarra and Emerson. I don't like the way this new England team is shaping up, I do not believe it can ever be successful like this.

Obviously Carrick has no place in any England squad. He has a brain and does not run around all the time and 'get suck in'.

Seriously, Carrick will probably never be suitable for England, at United he works in a well oiled machine where there is great movement and attackin fluidity for his pinpoint passes and through balls. Carrick playing with Gerrard, Lampard, Barry, Beckham and the likes is too much of a stylistic clash.

Ok, so he cant pass forward, is immobile and inferior to Barry and Jenas, yet he starts for the best team in the world.

You talk shit.

I agree, but that does not make him shit, just makes him unsuitable for the one dimensional tactically naive bag of horse wank that is England.

Somebody needs to tell Sir Alex about this, no wonder we have been struggling in recent years, playing a DM who never moves and who cant pass forward. What the f*ck does Sir Alex know about the game anyway, 10 league trophies my arse, does he have over 10,000 posts on XT?

:howler: :thumbsup:

Apart from a few people who just cant stand United, his talent and
organisation skills is there for everyone to see.

Like I said Carrick to boss the England midfield and Ashton as the
big man upfront, that's what England needs to change, everything
else seems fine.

He's great at Man U, but he has been very poor for England, sadly. I rate him highly, but he needs a specialised place in the side to work effectively.
You could say the same about Rooney and Gerrard.

Because he's better than Carrick?
Not really a fair comparison is it?

That's just like saying Rooney is better than Torres in the hole and Torres is better than Rooney up top.
