    This solves somewhat the Lampard/Gerrard playing together problem.

    Depends what you're looking for.

    If it's someone who's got good distribution then yes, but if it's a pure defender, then no.

    Ferdinand is more talented than Carragher, but Carragher has outperformed him for two years, and this year he's performed as highly as Terry. Some say his pace is a worry, which could well be true, but I'd rather have Carragher in the team than Ferdinand because I know who would have his heart in it more

    I'm tending to blame Xavier for Rooney's downfall. It's that disgusting avatar of his.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    the thing is though their playing styles dont really complement each others at all..

    Suggestion

    Does nay one-think after the WC is over that England could adapt and be successful with a 3-5-2 formation?, i think so..

    Firstly Neville could hold on to the RB role for a couple years but if he declines Carragher or an improving Young could replace him. Terry could be the lone central defender & Ash on the left.

    The mid-field which is England strenght could be more powerful with Carrick playing in front of Terry in the holding role, Beckham maybe will still be around or Gerrard could go on the right, Lampard in the attacking mid-field role & Joe on the left. With other good back-up options from Aaron Lennon, Downing, improving Kevin Nolan & Parker.

    Finally up front Rooney & Owen

    i didn't mean it like that, i'm saying that even though Lampard & Gerrard style of play from what we have seen don't complement each other that much, we are better of backing them to do it in the WC than go for not so go strikers to partner Owen up front.

    1 centre half?

    We may play that at the moment if Rio is on one of his away days, but I don't think so.

    3-5-2 would only work with 3 centre halves, and Neville isn't good enough for the RWB spot IMO.
