Totally agree John. When you look back and see how many caps a 'work horse' like Bryan Robson got, and then think of the silky skills of Hoddle. How strikers like Steve Archibald and Clive Allen must have loved playing with him - Hoddle'd spot the runs and lay the ball on a plate with enough back spin to stop the ball dead - all from 40 yards.
What could he have done for England - but at that time, the ethic was 'work work work' and that's only just changing now (and even Capello still thinks we don't have the depth of skill in this country to compete at that level).
In recent times Kevin-Prince Boateng, I can here some of you scoff at that suggestion, but did you see the goal here scored fo AC Milan recently against Barca?
Superb, first touch, control and finish. I think he could become a very good striker, lets hope not! ha ha
