If Hodgson can't tell Pirlo from Nocerino then I'm beginning to see how Carrick got left behind.

What is Hodgson's preferred formation? That could explain why Carrick is left out. Anyone know this?

Not only that, but Ambrosini didn't play either. Laughing

People are overreacting....The only wrong things I can see with the squad is him not selecting Richards,Lennon,Carrick and maybe Johnson,But He hasnt played alot in these few years although hes a fantastic player.3 wrong choices in a squad of twenty three players isnt that bad and There are plus sides like him selecting Ox and Welbeck.

Hodgson usually goes with a 4-4-2 or a 4-4-1-1/4-2-3-1. Judging by his comments in the press conference, we're going with a 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 while Rooney is suspended, and possibly returning to a 4-4-2 when he comes back.

I don't believe the formation to have much to do with Carrick being left out. I think Hodgson has merely gone with the safe options with little room for experimentation.

Let's be honest if Roy had called up the actual best English players he would have been crucified because they play for Norwich, Swansea, Wigan (:lucas : ) etc.

He went with a safe squad and imo I think it can do some damage.

Carrick should have been there over Barry. That would have been the safest. How can Barry be considered safe over Carrick?

Wow, this is gonna be interesting. Roy is gambling but I would wait to see how his plan turns out.

“He is a very exciting player who has made an impression on me, not least in his performance against AC Milan at the Emirates,” Hodgson said.

“I was there live and saw how well he dealt with Pirlo and Ambrosini. He can play wide or central and for future and can continue as he started.”

This is hilarious, but it can't be real, surely, no coach could be that thick.

I feel really sorry for Carrick, he's not getting any younger and when he should have been given the chance to lead the midfield he's been left behind.

At least Ox might get some time, however I'd have taken the youngest squad I could. Even if Sturridge had a poor second half this sort of experience can be invaluable.

He said it in his press conference. England are doomed.

I'm tipping France and Sweden to advance to the last 8. England haven't got a chance with that team and this clown as their manager.

Home advantage for the Ukraine will be tricky to overcome for all of the teams in the group, England can certainly still advance through with disciplined play and by stepping up during the important moments. I wouldn't be confident if I were English, however an even group suits England in my eyes.

4 Liverpool players plus 1 on standby? What the hell?

Anyway while it sucks for Carrick it makes sense - Highly doubt Hodgson has any plans of controlling possession or dictating the flow of the game, he wants his team to be organized, compact, and quick to counter/direct....Not sure Carrick really fits in that kind of style

We wont even do that...... we havent beaten Sweden in a competitive game since the 50s and Ukraine will be no push overs....

I am predicting going home without a win.

The mere fact Johnson ( yes i know i said he's overrated but he's still damn better than Downing ffs), Richards, Sturridge, Carrick etc etc not going is a complete joke....

The fact Holt or Graham didnt get a look in isnt a suprise but is also a joke.

Hold in he said Pirlo? he plays for Juventus ffs Laughing and i dont think Ambrosini even played Laughing

FFS Laughing it looks like a made a good decision to support the NUFC lads Laughing

Carrick might be excluded because Parker is already there and he will start.

They both operate in the same area. Do Gerrard warrant a starting position? I think not.

Sturride deserves nothing but he certainly deserves it more than downing lol.

Tbh, I'm not surprised Sturridge was dropped. But the fact that Downing/Henderson are there just makes it laughable. Even ahead of Johnson.

Not sure if this was mentioned yet, but Hodgson already named Gerrard captain, so any realistic lineup has to include him somewhere, whether you like it or not hmm
