Time to Pull Jags & Baines Out the England Squad!

Comments (10)

The competitive match is done & dusted, I'm sure I wasn't alone in being relieved to see that Jags & Baines were not in the starting 11. But you know come Tuesday both will be selected in the meaningless friendly.

We just cannot afford these two key players to be risked (especially in a friendly ffs), we are at crisis point injury wise and it?s time for strong management. Come on Moyes, ring Capello and tell him he?ll get a Glasgow Kiss if he even thinks about playing either of our lads.

I think the players have to be there for official games / qualifiers as we have seen with Tim. But we do have the option, or so I believe.

A practice / friendly BEFORE the big game, fair enough... but after!! nah, just money raising for the FA to pay off their Wembly debt.

Tell them to do one, Davey.

No chance, they will use players from clubs like us and rest players from the big 4-5.

Alex, Unfortunately, I feel that both Jags & Baines will play some part on Wednesday. So Davey Moyes will have to sweat it out, and just hope they come through injury-free.

The matches against Villa and Wolves are really going to be big tests for the squad. Even with Villa having squad problems of a different kind, they still have some great players. Let's hope things off the field don't improve too much before Saturday.

And Wolves know they have to win their home games, so I will go to both games, hoping that we can pull out two great results.

Cappello has already stood down Ashley Cole, Terry, Dawson, Lampard, Rooney et al. So it's almost certain they'll be starters, and candidates to play the 90.

I wonder what Baines and Jags would say, if you asked them to not play for England?

In normal circumstances, I'd be the first one to back them both to the hilt.

However, if for example Baines (who we already over rely on) picks up a knock in a ?Friendly? midweek before a game that could put be bed any mention of the Relegation... Anger? I?d be fucking livid.

In my opinion, he has nothing to prove, shoe-in if Cole gets injured and I?m sure he understands his current importance to the team. Same could be said regarding Jags given Heitinga?s mouthing off again & will be probably deployed in midfield anyway.

The risks are just too great, especially to the boxer shorts of any blues watching the game.

I agree somewhat but our season has gone anyway and that's why Moyes has sent Duffy to Burnley on loan.He isn't worried if Jags gets injured as he will play Heits in his place unless Heits gets an injury with Holland.
The season is now meaningless and Moyes has been instrumental in the way it has gone. He sent Yaks and Vaughan away and it has put too much pressure on injury prone King Louis who is also injured again.
