The problem is that the good footballers are being overlooked for the "athletes" like SWP and Walcott.I heard Chris Waddle say that the smaller skilled players should be given a chance,but it seems like the black players are being given the chance at a young age. Rooney,J Cole, Adam Johnson are true footballers with great skill,but 2 have a difficult time cracking the England lineup. Adam Johnson should be a regular starter now. There is something seriously wrong when SWP is picked ahead of J Cole. What do you think about J Cole starting in place of Defore up front? He should be on the bench at minimum with Milner and Johnson starting. At this point I would also put Walcott on the bench. Milner is also excellent with his tackiling and crossing. Why does A Cole automatically get a start? I would like to see Warnock get a chance. A Cole isn't super fast and his skills are only ok. I think the academies aren't taking the skill away so much as favoring the faster and or bigger, less skilled player. Players like Walcott,SWp and Ashley Young make up for their mediorce skills with speed. Walcott is the best of those 3.
