Why isn't Carra an automatic choice for England?

It's not just a question of ability. His performances as we all know have been incredible in the last 2-3 years. I know Terry and Rio have done well, but there is room for him in the side, regardless of whether it were at RB, LB or CB.

 

But, he's so f*cking inspirational!!! He's the kind you want on the field when the chips are down. He's proved from Istanbul that he is just awesome to have there in a big game.

 

It just makes me mad that he's not given the recognition that he deserves.

Sven probably wants some pace in their against the world's very best. Ferdinand with his head straight is fantastic, look at the last WC. If he's not at the races then yeah carra should be in. I think Neville and cole are there on merit tbf

 

He doesn't play for spurs.

 

TBH the only Spurs player in the team is Robinson and can you name a better english keeper?

the perception is that his ball distribution is nowhere near as good as the dynamic duo of Terry and Ferdinand.

 

also, he is hardly likely to pop up with the odd goal. he is terribly unlucky to be playing at a time that there are a few decent English central defenders.

 

if England ever did it, he would be great in a back 3, or as a sweeper.

I wonder how he'd get on as a defensive midfielder

 

 

his passing is just not up to scratch for a midfield position, except in an emergency!!

 

he had a nose bleed getting into Milan's half last May to set up the penalty, and needed a Sherpa guide to get back to his usual spot.

King, Defoe and Jenas?

Well it's not as good as Ferdinand's and I guess Sven prefers two different type of centre backs.

 

It's either Carragher or Terry and you can't argue with the latter starting I suppose.

 

He shouldn't start right back or left back because he's not better than the two currently there at the moment.

Huh? None of them are in the England team either.

 

 

spot on. has only ever picked players on reputations and not form.

 

When Ferdinand was shocking earlier he was bombed. The simple answer is that Ferdinand and Terry compliment each other better than Carra and Terry. Sven doesn't want to strip himself of the option of pace. If ferdinand is shyte between now and the end of the season then carra should play.

The press pick the team. There isa london bais.

 

FACT!

 

(well, the press picking the team thing is sort of fact, in the way that whatever they suggest sven goes with, like the myth that ledley king is a fantastic world class player, both in defence and midfield)

1.Sven is an idiot

2.He's not a fashionable central defender,doesn't play for a London club or the Mancs,and so doesn't get the credit he deserves from the presses.

3.People are still waiting for Rio to "come good" again,despite the fact that it's obvious he can't concentrate for 90 minutes.

4.Players like Ledley King are getting a look in too,despite being unable to defend against a long throw directly into the box.Top class that was.
