Lucky Kenny shame the same privilege wasn't afforded to the manager who picked Jamie to play at right back against Boro.
Next thing you will be telling me that dropping Fat Frank hasn't had any repercussions for Villas Boas.
It is absolutely shameful that it took an injury to Carra before the Skrtel Agger partnership was given a chance to flourish.
Haven't we learnt anything from that Jamie couldn't hack it for England nearly two years ago against mediocre opposition and made Altidore look like Pele.
Two years on he is getting game time for me on reputation only and would struggle to nail down a place in a Championship side. If he was from Bury or Birmingham instead of Bootle he would of been gone years ago.
Everybody saw the potential on paper of Agger and Skrtel - especially Rafa who brought them in for exactly that reason they compliment each other perfectly but Agger has been a sick note and Skrtel's form since his knee injury had been average. Skrtel would not have been top of my pick list for MOTM at Wembley after his gutless peformance against Spurs.
Second guessing form is nigh on impossible - which out of form player is going to hit form next - Downing, Carroll, Henderson, Adam, Enrique, Suarez?
If the manager sticks with a player and he does not come good he gets crucified because he should have being playing somebody else - if he doesn't stick with a player and another player comes in and fails he should have stuck with the original one - 'fans' always have hindsight, they always judge on results - they see the 'success' they want to see and ignore the bits that dont fit their view - its human nature and its bollocks but we can't help it
You say you knew Skrtel would have been playing as well as he has I believe you, but I didn't think he would be, I didn't see him fist pumping and leading the defence as he has and I've normally been pro the lad - you say its absolutely shameful its taken so long and its a carra conspiracy and I say you're talking Bollocks and letting your anti Carra vendetta blind you to reality
