4-4-2 is okay, yes?

4-2-3-1 or 4-4-1-1 ish. But probably 4-4-2...

Carroll doesn't really offer England anything more than a substitute who gets injured when you most need him. He's got no kind of consistent scoring record for club or country.

Just whisper "Big Man/Little Man combo up front" and I'm done.

Would have brought Carroll over Welbeck too. He instantly changes the play style and offers something different.

If we just need a head on a stick Harry Kane can do that already.

Is Kane that good in the air? I think I was the only one in the world not whinging about him not taking corners last time round...

He scored 6 headers this season in the league, which is the second most in the Premier League, so I'd say he's pretty decent. It's definitely something he's improved on a lot this year.

Yeah including Sessegnon would've been a waste of a spot - like Walcott in 2006.

arguably Trent has that spot.

Trent's only 19 and has no caps.

Also, he should just bin off international football because it's shit.
:shifty:

You mean 5 headers and 1 imaginary header. I've scored some worldy imaginary goals, get me on the plane!

The imaginary goal supposedly came off the shoulder, not the head.

He's so salty over this.

I might be in the opposite camp on this but I think it is great that he is pissed off about not being picked. Shows that he has *passhun* and all that. Prove to us all that you deserve to be in the next squad.
