    seems incapable of catching a ball.

    you'd think that's kind of part of the job description
    I know, right.

    He can't catch a ball or even punch it out properly.

    can see Moldova parking the bus and England resorting to launching balls at Lambert.

    let the lad get a goal or two.

    gutted for Welbeck. performs very well for England, would've been a definite starter for Tuesday
    I'd imagine Lambert will be coming off soon with that booking for Welbeck I'd think we won't be taking chances with him.

    Side note to anyone watching on ITV, that British Airways advert :eek: That was awesome!

    Welbeck is the new Peter Crouch - loves scoring against cannon fodder (bar Sweden, of course).

    Walker is absolutely rubbish down that right hand side, he's not really good in either direction tbh.

    Given that the comparison is a very specific one - the quality of the international teams they've scored against - yes, quite.

    seems a little to early to judge wellbeck on this one yet..

    He only has 18 caps,

    with goals against:

    Belgium, sweeden(twice), san morinio, scottland, and now moldova

    - seems a bit to early to say that he only scores against weaker teams, sweeden+belgium are both of fair quality, and scottland whilst weak, are a bit of a special case..

    it would be a fairer arguement that he simply doesnt score neough, because only twice has he scored well against really week teams (san.m. and Moldova)

    He could be more prolific, yes, but his scoring rate is okay. I take your point, though, even if I'll always remain a little skeptical about goals in friendlies.

    Please rejig my memory, and direct me to the part of my post where I said that Welbeck was incompetent. I simply noted that both Welbeck and Crouch seem to have habits of scoring very efficiently against sides regarded as middling to poor. Which, given that it can be proved by looking over their scoring records, is hardly a controversial viewpoint.

    'Welbeck is the new Peter Crouch, he's completely limited and offers very little bar tap ins against Moldova' would be a little sillier, I agree. So please show me where I either implied that or said that.

    Oh, and posting single Youtube clips is an amateurish way of making a point. Look, I can do it too!
