Ok, so this is the first match without Walter the Softy. It's a friendly, so it means not a lot, but I think pearce has named a fairly decent squad
Goalkeepers: Scott Carson (Bursaspor), Joe Hart (Manchester City), Robert Green (West Ham United).
Defenders: Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Leighton Baines (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Phil Jones (Manchester United), Micah Richards (Manchester City), Chris Smalling (Manchester United),
Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur), Jolean Lescott (Manchester City).
Midfielders: Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Tom Cleverley (Manchester United), Stewart Downing (Liverpool), Adam Johnson (Manchester City), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), James Milner (Manchester City), Scott Parker (Tottenham Hotspur), Ashley Young (Manchester United), Theo Walcott (Arsenal).
Darren Bent (Aston Villa), Fraizer Campbell (Sunderland), Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Danny Welbeck (Manchester United).
Fair enough it is Manchester City heavy, but with his history with them and the fact they are on fire (Kinda) its understandable.
Who would you start? or even who would you have included in the squad?
For me its...
GK - Joe Hart
(Green and Carson just dont cut it anymore, I know its a friendly but still we need some more options)
DR - Micah Richards
DL - Leighton Baines
DC - Phil Jones
DC - Gary Cahill
(The defense is really struggling at the moment especially with injuries. But on paper when all are fully fit, its not half bad)
M - Ashley Young
M - Scott Parker
M - Tom Cleverly
M - James Milner
F - Danny Wellbeck
F - Daniel Sturridge
That is't half a bad team on paper, and it has the youth, it just lacks the experience. But fuck gerrard, lampard and Terry, Move forward. I for one wouldn't mind Pearce taking the job full time and bringing the young guys through
