Eric Youngs Contact Lens
- Dec 9, 2020
GS justifcation for taking Maguire et al (Those who are hopelessly out of form and not playing regularly) was that these matches were big occasions and he felt he needed players who he could trust to handle those situations - despite the fact that their employers don't trust them to do the job they need to. As it happens, I can understand his omission of Solly given the talent that is in front of him. BUT, the centre-back situation is simply bizarre. It demonstrates, to me at least, that he hasn't used the opportunities to try enough players - rather, as in the case of Lewis, one squad selection and that has apparently told him all he needs to know. There is no transition plan, simply a view of get the band back together for one last shot at glory - it wont work. I think we will get beaten in Italy.
