The recently concluded online polls was quite surprising. Generally, the public was generally split and undecided on who occupy the other center midfield berth and partner Stevie G. 44% voted for Hargreaves while another 44% voted for Barry. When you think about it though, Hargreaves had proved himself during the World Cup, and Barry's recent endeavours in the 2 Euro 2008 qualifiers, perhaps it is not quite so surprising.
Personally, i believe Hargreaves should get the nod, because he has had more experience in top flight football ; German league, Champions League at his time with Bayern Munich. Also, he is more suited to playing the tough tackling anchor role, whereas Barry is more of a defensive playmaker type. When playing against top top teams, a defensive playmaker is a luxury England cannot afford.
However, the bigger question is, WHICH IDIOT VOTED FOR PHIL NEVILLE?
