Heskey - No Complaints If Dropped For England

Heskey - No Complaints If Dropped For England

Villa and England striker Emile Heskey has admitted in the Daily Star that he wouldn't be in a position to complain if he gets dropped for England's crunch game v Croatia on Wednesday night and replaced by on form Spurs man Jermain Defoe.

There appears to be more and more talk about the use of Emile, who lets face it has got to have 'something' that a lot of us fans miss because he's sold for a fortunes worth of transfer fees throughout his career despite rarely actually scoring!

I had to smile on Sunday watching the Sky Sports Sunday Supplement show when one reporter said he'd start again with Heskey and the other two said they liked their strikers to actually be able to score!

If only Emile used his physical assets and added some aggression, he could have been a terror, that said, he does appear to have the eye of Fabio Capello like so many before him. Not that that is a high recommendation when you look at the lack of success for England and the lack of goals for Emile!

He doesn't get a regular start for us, doesn't score when he does and can't buy a goal for England.....how does he get in the England team!?

Heskey's very lucky to be playing top flight football & especially International football when the likes of Dennis Mortimer & Ian Taylor never even got 1 cap between them (Ridiculous!). He couldn't complain if Kevin Davies took his England place, nevermind Defoe! I remember reading on the Villa website he promised to score more goals. Glad 2 see he's a man of his word. (How many already this season?)

he should be dropped for saying that. can you imagine beckham saying the same about shaun wright phillips? It shows a lack of passion, he should be saying 'i dont care how many goals he's scoring, its my place and he's not having it'

How he is even in the squad beyond me!! I would have him 3rd choice striker.......in our Villa team.....of English strikers! After Gabby and the Fonz!! Push came to shove in a striker crisis I would happier see Milner our Young put in an advanced role!! The silly thing is he is clearly a decent, quality striker.....he just is not a Villa player!! Does not fit the mould we need!
