I’m not a huge fan of the international break. As the years have gone by, i’ve enjoyed watching England play less and less, especially when it interupts the glory of the premier league.
It would be no surprise to hear that I am unhappy with the news that Senderos is going to be sidelined for a few weeks due to an injury he picked up during the Swiss loss earlier in the week. This is bad news for a team that is finding it’s footings with a new looking defence, especially since Vlaar has been out as well; it’s all al ittle too shakey. The good news is that Vlaar is due back on the pitch! So we have a silver lining to look at.
There have been comments and alot of discussion over the maturity Baker has showed in recent weeks, and it is all much deserved. There was always the question of whether it would be right to drop him and resume the original centre back combo of Vlaar and Senderos, with some being vocal about Baker earning his right to replace Senderos. Well this is the chance and perhaps a blessing in disguise.
Although it isn’t good news that we are suffering injuries yet again in our defensive positions. This could prove a valuable moment in Bakers career and hopefully we will see the rise of a great CB pairing. It looks even stronger knowing that we have Senderos ready on the bench and the potential of what Okore could offer the squad is still an exciting prospect.
Choice of players and compitition for places is vital. Now to have some stiff competition in that left back role…
