Did alright. Passers like Carrick are a better bet for Hodgson to achieve success then two more defensive minded players. If England have more control the midfield don't have to do quite so much work. So, no more defensive midfielders - they can't work if England are to put themselves together.
And I think Milner might be pretty big for Man City this season. A far better player then Johnson, always has been. Defoe is a sharp edge to England, and he should start up front ideally - but Carroll is another thing altogether - if we were to get two more aggressive winger then I feel he could flourish.
Not going to spend all night talking about it - but the change in outlook was nice, even if the 4-4-2/4-4-1-1 isn't going to change.
