Let’s hope Scholes can do better
Emile Heskey has not worked, Steve McManaman has not worked, Darren Anderton has not worked. Nick Barmby has fallen away, Owen Hargreaves did the Black Prada Bag With Gold job only once, Graeme le Saux has been overlooked and Kieron Dyer is not fit. Bicester Village London Prada Trevor Sinclair is an afterthought.
Now it appears that Paul Scholes is the answer to England’s never-ending search for a left-sided midfielder. It seems like a case of whatever is left.
The problem is, Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada E Shop of course, that Scholes, like all the above bar Le Saux, is right-footed. Scholes also said at the Arsenal training ground the day England left for Dubai that “central midfield” was his preferred position.
That was his answer in relation Authentic Prada Gauffre to a Manchester United question concerning Scholes’s indifferent and positionally interrupted season. He is now being asked to fulfil a role he and Sven-Goran Eriksson both know does not come naturally.
Eriksson did not mention Scholes by name yesterday but he said that England had been experimenting at their base on Awaji Island. “When things are not going well you have to talk, to work on the training pitch pradasg.com,” Eriksson said. “That is what we are doing. We might make some changes but Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Online Store I will decide that on Friday morning or lunchtime. We did some technical work today and tried something that looked well. It is better that it looks nice on Friday.”
Eriksson was once asked which non-English player he would like to draft into his side. His answer was Ryan Giggs. That was about a year ago, some six months into Eriksson’s tenure, but the succeeding 12 months have not brought the Swede an answer. Giggs is still Welsh.
When Giggs played successfully up front beside Ruud van Nistelrooy recently, Scholes filled in on the left. But it had a temporary feel because it was a temporary measure.
Scholes is unlikely to be Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Online Store chuffed that he Black Leather Prada Milano Purse is now considered dispensable in the centre of the park to accommodate Nicky Butt and Owen Hargreaves, and there is the distinct possibility that Scholes will not give England the leftist balance that the team so obviously lacks. More and more the studied omission of Le Saux looks strange.
Yet Eriksson had Bicester Village London Prada to address the situation again after Heskey’s guileless performance against Sweden, though that was hardly surprising considering his efforts there against South Korea and Cameroon in the two warm-up games.
“I believe in him,” Eriksson had said of Heskey after the Cameroon match, but he is among a diminishing number who do and the switching of Heskey to partner Michael Owen is a recognition that Heskey has failed to give England the width and shape that every team requires. It is a basic rule of the game and it is one indictment of Eriksson’s regime that he has still to fix the problem.
“I think he did well in the first half,” Eriksson said of Heskey’s display against Sweden. “But, when all the team starts to play so and so, it is difficult to play good football. Heskey on the left gave us a lot of good things.” What those things were was not specified.
Neither were the things that will be changed. A five-man defence in which Ashley Cole and Danny Mills augment the midfield would seem to be one reasonable solution but, whereas Eriksson has been prepared to play 4-3-3, 5-3-2 appears to be a formation too far.
Had either Steven Gerrard or Dyer been fit, then this situation may not have arisen, or at least not been so serious, but Dyer remains insufficiently fit to play the full 90 minutes against Argentina. And, even Bicester Village Prada Discount Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada though a lot of faith was put in the Newcastle player, Dyer has played only the first half of the friendly against Paraguay at Anfield on England’s left side.
His substitute’s appearance against Sweden did not see Dyer retain possession or hold his position long enough to judge his left-sided credentials. He looks likely to be a substitute again in a game England must not lose.
In the search for goals it is ironically the man in form, Darius Vassell, who is likely to suffer most from Heskey’s ineffectiveness on the left. The Aston Villa striker will make way for Heskey up front. Heskey has not scored for England since getting the fifth goal in Munich last September. 66
