Crouch over Carroll
I was all for Carroll a couple of months ago and I still think there is some merit to the idea but I would probably just go for Rooney, Sturridge, Rodriguez and Welbeck now. I suppose there could still be room for Lambert or Carroll.
I've been pretty consistent, if we want a lump, go for Crouchy. I don't rate Carroll, and Lambert doesn't look in great form, but TBH, I'd have no problem going without one altogether.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Would still pick Carroll over Crouch, not sure about Lambert, but would probably opt for the 4 Pothas mentioned unless Roy really is determined to play hoofball.
Crouch has a strong case. I just think he's too much of a target man. If he plays, there'll be hoofball, and that doesn't play to the strengths of the players that are actually good. Lambert's a better fit unless they're going to pick Kevin Nolan. The goals have dried up but he's still playing well, 3rd most assists in the league this season.
Kevin Nolan is a Bolton ****
Carroll on his beat day is better than Crouch for me, but they are so few and far between I'd agree Crouch is the better player
Yeah I think that's fair. Carroll still has some potential whereas we all know how good Crouch is/was.
They're pretty average strikers, a few great goals between them but poor goalscoring records overall. The only reason for Hodgson to give either game time is that if he doesn't then when England lose, The Sun will pin it on him for "not bringing a Plan B".
Yeah. It's not like I rate Carroll. But I never want to see this, ever again:
Rodriguez has an ACL, so take him out of your equations, he was an outside shot, but could have done well.
He definitely should have gone I think. Shame.
Lets throw Harry Kane in for a laugh.
Mainly because getkaneontheplane, is a great campaign.
I've done my squad with Sky, I'm hoping this is a reality TV type-thing and I'm picking the side for real, based on votes.
I must admit it's rather evaporated my slight optimism, 1 decentish 'Keeper in the country, no good right-backs two decent centre-halves, I've picked Caulker FFS. It also makes me shudder that actually Phil Jones (for his ability to be **** in many positions, we always have one of these at a WC, it's a great tradition), and possibly Smalling will almost certainly go. Depressing.
Noble robbed OBVS because he's not in the options.
