Neither player did much today.
Sure, there's all this "wow, these great players, great additions to an increasingly great premiership filled with stars"....BUT,
these players are hardly proven. We'll just have to wait and see as to how good these players really are, and can be...
don't count your chickens though!
to be honest, alot of Sven's squad was poorly picked....i had heard prior to the naming that he tried to have two teams of 11, plus the spare goalie. however, he then chose 7defenders, 9midfielders, and 4 strikers.
1.we took bridge, a.cole, g.nevile,jamie caragher, campbell, terry and ferdinand. surely ditching campbell (shakey against sweden) and bridge, and bringing phil nevile as a reserve would have made far more sense, seeing that he could play in both full back positions. admittedly it could have lead to a lack of central defenders, but you don't win a world cup by not conceeding(we kept 4/5 clean sheets; so what.)
2.in the midfield we obviously had jenas, who was never neccesary. if we remove him and the two mentioned above, we could then have had two free spaces (once phil nevile is on board) for strikers.
3.in regards to strikers, we needed two replacements for owen/rooney as well as crouch. nobody ever mentioned him as a replacement for rooney, but sheringham? admittedly he can't run, but there seems to be a lot more time in international football which could have been key? and one of defoe/bent/walcott for owen.
oh sven,it was so simple.....
