Heskey Should Not be in the England Squad

Posted by Jarv on September 7, 2009

7 goals in 55 appearances says it all to me, I can’t understand how he’s still there, Capello says he picks players who are on form for their clubs, Heskey hasn’t scored for his club and is struggling to get in their side. I realise Capello has something against Owen and he’s not set the world light yet either but at least he has scored.

If we must play a big man play Carlton cole, at least he doesn’t give the impression he is going to fall over every time the ball goes anywhere near him. Me personally i would actually play the 2 form players, Defoe and Rooney and the Slovenia game was a perfect opportunity to try them together up front from the start and not just for 20 minutes after half time.

Surely there are better English strikers around than having to play Heskey, Agbonlahor, for one, Darren Bent is playing well for Sunderland, Either deserve another shot rather than Heskey, I understand players like playing with him but if Heskey played for your club and managed7 goals every 55 games would you be saying oh go on have another go or would you be calling for someone else to get a go?
