Liverpool Message Board
I can't remember for sure, but didn't Savage throw his dolly out of the pram and say that he wouldn't be playing for Wales anymore? If he would play then I'd like to see him in the team, even though he is a bit of a scrapper!
I'm not saying drop Lamps forever! but you'd have to agree that he's not at his best - maybe he needs a break, after all, the guy's played quite a bit of football with not much rest this year. You're right, Becks is pretty emotional but I still think he deserves another chance.
Why not give Michael Carrick a go in Hargreaves' position? I definately think that Lampard should be dropped for now - he's obviously seriously under par right now - he can always come back when (if!) he regains his form. Bring back Becks for his crossing and set pieces - after all he did win us 2 games in Germany whatever you think of him! If Gerrard stay in front he can always drift in front of Becks as well and hopefully crack in a few!
