Gareth Barry was one of the more consistent performers in that euro qualifying campaign. Stevie G was a no show.
Downing impressed me with some of his runs but his crossing was a dissapointment. The same could be said about Ashley Cole.
Brown for me shouldn't be in the starting XI. He can tackle but his crossing is poor. He played without pride or passion unlike a certain David Beckham who although didn't play his best match, he was one of the better performers.
Bentley coming on didn't do much with his pace or his crossing. It was an awkward second half performance from England. We can be thankful that there was no Benzema.Henry,Veira,Ben Arfa or the other skillful players to cause havock.

I didn't say that he was a world class player...
He was one of the more consistent performers at the qualifying campaign....There really wasn't one good performer from the england camp.
I'd bring carrick into the team with SWP and Ashley Young into the fold as well.
I think Barry is cr@p and i will add Peter Crouch to the list,he has scored some important goals for england but is still shite ,it is as if Fabio rang up Steve Mcclaren and asked for advice on who he should pick as they all seem to be Svens/Mcclarens players !
