    No wonder those whinging Canadians are so annoyed about not having him if he's doing well :D

    Do you reckon it's true that he finds it harder to break in by not playing in the Premiership? I don't. I think being at Bayern is what pushed Sven to give him his chance and has kept him in the squad when he has not looked better than the likes of Parker and Jenas.

    I would much rather have him as def mid in the buildup to the next world cup than Butt if he's genuinely nailed down a starting place at Bayern and is improving. Parker not playing regularly at Chelsea is another plus for Hargreaves.

    Sven just uses him as a sub who can come on late in the game and do a defensive job it seems .A defensive utility player who can cover quite afew positions across midfield and maybe even at full-back.

    I have usualy been impressed with Hargreaves when he has came on for England. Its a shame he hasn't had more starts/time to show what he can do.

    I really wish Hargreaves would spontaneously combust and we could all shout - "Frying Tonite" - he's not feckin English, and as such is surplus to requirements!!!

    I think England definitely need a world class defensive midfielder. Gerrard attacks too much these days to be considered one, Butt isn't as good as he once was and Phil Neville never was any good.

    If Hargreaves can become a world class holding player, it'll be great for the England team.

    Hargreaves played really well in the 2 games he played in at the World Cup. Shame he got injured against Argentina :eek: He's never really got back in since then

    I think with Gerrard out of the side, Hargreaves should definitely be given a chance against Spain. He may not deserve a place when everyone is healthy, but I definitely think he is better than Butt
