Why play what's effectively one up front?Originally posted by marc71178
Heskey does a lot of the donkey work, allowing Owen to score the goals - he's a strong player, who works 110% and scares defenders.
Since Owen is our number one striker, and he needs a big workhorse-type player next to him, Heskey gets and deserves, the nod.
The selection of Rooney, Vassell and Jeffers as the other 3 forwards is to me a bad move.
Jeffers is a diver, can't for the life of me understand why he's in the squad, and Vassell's living off that overhead kick...
Weren't we supposed to have a great big crop of good young strikers a bit ago?!
