THE VOTE Who should be England’s goalkeeper for the Israel game?


23rd, August 2007


With Paul Robinson looking increasingly out of sorts and hopelessly out of form following his blunder against Germany last night, who should Steve McClaren stick in nets for the next qualifier? Is Robbo getting a rough deal from England fans? Is David James the man to call upon? Should be McClaren be looking at a younger keeper? Is this too many questions? To the matter in hand:

    David James should not be England number one.
    Give Carson his chance.

  4. Andrew II says:

    Anyone voting for David James should be shot.

  5. Kate says:

    I don’t know how in earth Steve McClaren thinks that Paul Robbinson is the best keeper of England…I vote for James.

    Bonny Langford or Venus de Milo ?

  8. Matthew Burke says:

    don’t you remember who is David James ??? he shouldn’t even be number 2 and you want him to play in a critical game ? NO WAY
    Robinson is OK for England
    against Germany, he was very unhelped
    his defense did not react at all when he pushed back that nasty cross in front of his cage.
    Had Micah Richards been there (in central defense), I guess it wouldn’t have happened
    -During Manchester derby, he cleared the ball perfectly after Kasper Schmeichel dropped it-
    The second german goal was an absolute cracker, Robbo couldn’t do nothing to save that !
    There is no better goalie than him in England, he should play against Israel, that’s for sure
