England NT Selections: Kevin Davies Gets The Call Up

With all the retirements, involuntary retirements, captain-related shenanigans and performances ranging in quality from awesome to asshat, we’re certain that Fabio Capello is as nervous as we are when it comes to announcing the England squad.

Never one to disappoint, Fabs has decided to throw the hacks a bone. Rather than obsessing over the above perennial probs, this time the footie journos can slaver over the inclusion of Bolton Wanderers striker Kevin Davies over Newcastle United’s Andy Carroll.

Although a decent enough goal scorer for his club, at thirty-three Davies is hardly a long-term prospect. Carroll meanwhile, has been on an great run of form since Newcastle returned to the EPL and has been tipped to be an England regular in the future. He is also very hot.

What do you think, Kickettes? Experience over pretty? Has Fabio fouled up again, or do you think Davies is exactly the type of um… no-nonsense goal scorer the England NT need while Wayne Rooney is misfiring?

Let us know what you think about the selects.

The entire England NT squad for the Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro on Tuesday can be found here.

    I will admit I certainly don't understand the ins and outs of putting together a football team, but can anyone tell me why Frank Lampard isn't in the line-up for this game? Curious minds (too lazy to search google) want to know. Thanks in advance.

    Andy Carroll for me, he couldn't do much worse than Emile Heskey. Davies would have made more sense five years ago. I was looking at a list of English "one cap wonders" during the Premier League era and it scares me. A group like this (in their primes) would be useful to Capello right about now: http://www.footballfancast.com/2010/03/football-b…

    Yay Andy Carroll, Jack Wilshire, and Joe Hart! I totally knew it.
    For clarification: Gareth Bale plays for Wales and not England, right?
