...and service to the front 2 over the last half a dozen games has been sadly lacking... Beckham always provided the strikers with something - even on bad days.
Lennon's still learning, and Downing's not worth bothering with.
True - he was a great crosser of a football - personally don't see it as a good move to bring him back.
Lennon is a totaly different style of winger - shame wright-phillips never plays at Chelsea, as he was fantastic when at City and on that form could have done a job...
I agree, Downing is a waste of space- hopefully Joe Cole will be back soon......generally though it'd be nice to see the team playing a high tempo game - that's when England have always looked capable of beating good teams - we cannot beat the top teams playing a slow technique based game
