ah well unfortunately, he is underated by many, and hasn't played for Arsenal very much recently, due to the fact that we've had a solid backline, and have been playing a 'flair' midfield, so he's been a bit surplus to requirements.

but if you need a player who can win the ball in midfield, isn't afraid to tackle, and can score some spectacular goals from 30 yards out, then Parlour's your man. i doubt Butt has really had much more match experience than him anyway...

I personally don't rate him as a player with much quality to be honest.
From what i've seen he's an average squad player, who gets lucky once in a while.

Butt is a solid first team quality player, although i admit he has not played much for united this season (alot to do with Fergie's insistance on playing Djemba-Djemba alot, which is beyond my understanding), but he is certainly good enough to play for most sides.

any player good enough to get 10 england caps is more than just a 'squad player'. he's not as prolific as other players, but he's definitely the workhorse of the team when he plays, making vital tackles, chasing balls, and generally strengthening the midfield defensively.
i'm sure other gunners fans will back me up on that.

ferguson's tactics have been rather suspect this season - imo he should have retired after the treble.

Really?
I'd have though that its the players ability, rather than their caps that showed how good they were.

Well, gunners fans would probably stand behind him, as he's one of their own.

Well, even as a man u fan, i can agree to some extent, but he is still just about the best manager in the premiership, so he certainly shouldn't have retired.

Depends really on whether a strong sides put out.

I'd probably guess at 3-2.
No idea on the scorers (although i'd hope scholesey gets one).

Japan 0-2 England (Owen, Gerrard)

Hope Defoe comes on in second half to impress Sven!

Same here, but there's no harm in hoping. I hope Gerrard scores (more likely).
