    I'd have to check mate, I remember reading it in an article. This says they started 12 games together that season. His soccernet profile has Torres being subbed in 4 EPL games so, even if we were to say Gerrard was present in those matches it is 12 starts and 4 sub appearances in 38 games.

    From memory, they didn't really play a whole lot together. When Torres was injured Gerrard was fine and when Gerrard was injured Torres was fine.

    It may sound like an excuse but if we had Torres for more games I am fairly sure we could have made up the difference and won the title.

    Question for the English: how do you think it would go down if Capello picked Arteta?

    I reckon the media is already looking for the jugular and it would just be one more thing to attack him with.

    Would cause a massive stir for sure, think the media would not be overly pleased at all. Myself I don't really mind. Ideally I suppose I would rather an English player, but he's as English as Keven Pietersen is I suppose, so I'd have no major qualms. He's certainly one of the most talented players eligible for selection in any case.

    If Capello can convince Scholes back too...Arteta and Scholes swapping passes in midfield...that would be a sight.

    Any player that keeps Shaun Wright-Phillips away from ever wearing the three lions again is alright by me.

    The media would probably kick up a stink, but they're not worth paying the slightest attention to anyway.

    Arteta being picked for England would cause a massive stir not only in the media but the other Home Nations and FIFA. The only reason England, Scotland, Wales and NI have separate teams is the Gentleman's Agreement which refers to a section/clause in FIFA's Statutes. Picking Arteta= can of worms which leads to a GB team.

    No it wouldn't, Arteta has played in England for 5 and a half years, and Scotland for 2. He's entitled to British nationality if he wants it, and he'd qualify for England based on how long he's played in the country.

    There's fairly concrete rules regarding British nationals being eligible for the Home Nations.

    Fair enough with Gerrard, but Torres has never been able to play anything close to a full season so I'm not having that. Saying you might have done better if Torres hadn't been injured a lot isn't far from saying you might have done better had Lucas not played **** a lot. Staying fit is a part of the game, one that Torres is particularly bad at, and that is always going to cost his team over the course of the season.

    Ye Caroll is certainly worth a go now. Esepcially considering others strikers like C Cole & Bent aren't international quality & Crouch isn't trusted @ the highest level.

    ATS Rooney/Zamora/Defoe/Caroll should be the strikers picked for the first EURO qualifiers. (Owen & outside chance)

    Yep thats my regular morning prayer that this occurs. Arteta already plays for ENG for me in FIFA 10 & Pro Evolution soccer.

    No point in recalling Scholes, would have literally no long term benefits whatsoever.

    as GF said, Arteta's been in England long enough to play for England.

    If anyone can be accused of opening a can of worms re representing a nation, look at Darren Gibson....
