Villa Skipper Makes England Cut

Villa Skipper Makes England Cut

Ashley Young and Gabriel Agbonlahor have failed to make the cut for Fabio Capello's squad for the friendly match v France this week.

Scott Carson has had to withdraw with an injured knee, which calls into question why he was played yesterday having been an injury doubt for a few days before?

Gareth Barry will now be the only Villa player on England duty.

The match, in Paris, will be played on Wednesday 26 March, kick off 8pm.

His form for Villa has suffered ever since he has been playing this holding role for England. His attacking play is now lame and can't remember him scoring other than penalties this season.

Has no one else noticed that Barry has been as poor as anyone for villa lately?

Barry has been poor in recent games, Carson gets alot of stick but it seems illegal to question Barry's commitment. Alot of the team look lost at the moment and MON needs to sort them out

Lets just hope the guy returns from Paris injury free. Things are getting 'sticky' enough right now, the loss of GB for two or three games is the last thing we need.
