I've watched Carrick for years now, and of course I've seen him lay off a decent pass now and again, and I've seen him put in a good tackle too, but so do many other players who, perform better and more consistantly than he does.
I just do not get the overwhelming vote of confidence this guy gets from everyone. He is a very average player. Someone today called him a technical genius with incredible vision. He cannot be talking about the same Carrick surely.
Sorry, but I just don't and have never, seen much that is special about Carrick, and I certainly would not want him as one of the first choice eleven England players.
Fabio will stick to the starting 11 that has played in the last four victorious games for England. The setup does not need changing, and most of those players who played last night will return to where they belong. Back to the subs bench.
They are good second string players, but no more than that.
