Ossie For England

Recommended Posts

''If he maintains his form, and if McClaren is to be believed, it won’t be long before Osman pushes for a place in the England squad. Although there may be a tendency to compare Osman with other fringe midfielders such as Manchester City’s Barton, Bolton’s Nolan, Newcastle’s Parker or Tottenham’s Jenas, Osman in fact offers something extra perhaps even to challenge Chelsea’s Lampard or Liverpool’s Gerrard.''

 

This part made me laugh. Sorry.

I really rate ossie, I think hes a class little player, and RS i know have changed their opinions of him since seing him.

 

I can't see him gettin into the starting 11 but I think on the form hes shown he should be in the squad.

Not good enough by a f*cking mile, I like the boy, but there is no way on the planet he is good enough for England.

would it be ever so harmful to give him 20 mins. if he doesnt make the grade ok but if he does. well i certainly think he can.

 

 

so come on lads if jenas could get in the squad. sure as hell ossie can. and is 20 mins surely too much asking????

Osman isnt good enough for England, it's as simple as that.

Agreed. Good player, but i feel the size of him and j=his weight lets him down tbh. But yeh good player i like him but no good enough!

 

but if the call comes i will be backing him! :):D

I think Ossie is a great player, def the most underrated player at Everton. I would think he should be on the finges of the England squad but hes never going to oust Lampard or Gerrard from their spot

The biggest thing that lets Ossie down is his stature, and I am afraid he can't do anything about - his ability in a bigger frame would make him a very good player, perhaps a excellent player and indeed pushing for a England call up.

 

But I am afraid a good big'n is always going to be better than a good littl'n.

.................

 

I can't agree with you on this one Rob. i have'nt seen that many good Big'uns, but i've seen lots of good little'uns. I think its just a lack of pace that lets him down.

 

 

And you would never say that to Bobby Collins or Alan Ball, and remain standing for long. :D

Thats true but how often do you actually see Jenas play England? Not very often.

thing is if the first teamers are lets say all out injured he gets the nod, i know what you mean but i think ossie should take jenas's place, training with england will only encourage him more to play even better and hopefully break into the team as hard as that would be like.
