You do realise only 2 players kept their place after the first game ?

Nothing to do with being dropped, its standard in this tournament that the squad is used during the group games


I do realise that yes, however Sam wasn't rotated back in for the 3rd match until someone was injured in the 1st half. If you don't think he was dropped for the Portugal game why didn't he start the Mexico game?

I have no idea why some players were picked and others not picked, thats down to the staff for that team, i'm just not assuming anything either way as I don't have any agendas.

That age group doesn't have a particularly great team, so I don't think you can pinpoint Sam for being a poor player in it. No more than, say, Kyle Edwards.

Well Jacko can, but any reasonable person can't. ;D

Just had a look, 24 pages in 3 years on not-so-young Sam, I reckon this season is make or break for him, either a regular at Xmas or on the cheerio list

21 last month and you are willing to write him off by Christmas? He has already made 37 appearances for us, has played reasonably well, and continues to develop. As a holding midfielder he will be at his peak in about 7 years time. Have a bit of patience.

I've always thought he looked useful, I hope he comes through.  I hope we find a manager who will give him a fair crack at things.

I've just had a mental imagine of Dowling and Jenkins sifting through lost property looking for one of those......

I'd just like to know what he's done wrong in the games he has played to attract the negativity. Can anyone answer ? 

He certainly hasn't given the ball away repeatedly or got caught out of position repeatedly or got himself sent off for reckless challenges.

The only possible answer is too much sideways or back passing. Personally I don't agree with that accusation anyway...if there is a touch of that it's probably due to general lack of movement in the team.

If you watch the games, I think Sam does go sideways and backwards too often - early on in games. By about half time / beginning of the second half, he seems to have grown in confidence and starts trying more things. It's something that will come with experience and confidence.

Although it would help if there was better movement in front of him.
