Steve McClaren, can you see Phillip Neville anywhere in the top ten? Can you see a Villa player recently put in your squad at Number 4?

You are on £2.5million a year, put two and two together and you might know what to do next match.

To be totally honest here, all this "Barry for England" stuff is all well and good, and very loyal, etc, etc. But how many players have ever established themselves as regular England players at his age in the last 10 years? Any? And keepers don't count!

it isn't the not establishing himself that is the problem, it is a quality left sided player not getting a chance to establish himself when we are screaming out for quality in that area that gets to me!

I firmly believe the next England manager to be successful with the current crop of players has to do two things and two things only: 1. Have the balls to pick a left midfielder in every squad i.e. Barry, and have the balls to keep playing him there. 2. Drop Fatty Lampard and put Gerrard, who is a far supierior player technically than Lamps will ever be, in with a proper holding player - take a bow Owen Hargreaves, Ledley King, or Parker. Maybe that is three things looking at it, but who cares, answer these questions McClaren and I think you will get the support you need, from fans and media alike. I can see along with the other 60 million english fans out there what needs to be done, why cant you?

Fear - what I'm saying is that I can't see a player who turns 26 in a few days and isn't established (though that's not his fault) ever being given the chance to become established. In the past 10 years, players are regulars by the age of 23 or not at all and I can't see that changing.

McClaren could not see Barrys tallent if it landed on his head, all the time he keeps putting his blind faith in players he was involved with as a coach at Manyoo or poor manager at Villaboro decent players like Barry just as well hang their ar5es out of woolworths window.

Put Micah Richards at left back and Barry at left Mid and the the left side is sorted. Gerrard in the middle with Hargreaves and Lennon on the right and cloe at right back. Bent and Rooney up front and terry and ferdinand at the back. Drop Robinson as he is very sus at the mo

Steve64k - "spot-on" with both of comments. But we'll never see it under McClaren - Big Sam's the only one out there, except for MON that would have the "b*lls" to start with Lampard and Joe Cole as subs. and Barry at left-midfield.

Steve64k- Jimmy Rimmer got Villa to the european cup final only to come off after a few minutes. During that run and indeed season, he never once flapped at a cross or let the ball slip under his body or through his hands. JR was a1, TS is ok most of the time but not in the same bracket. Perhaps it is the younger ones voting for TS. UTV.
