Why No Call Up For Bentley???
David Bentley has missed out on a place in England's squad to face Germany next week.
The one thing that no-one has clarified yet is why?
Whilst to me I can see why Bentley was ommitted for personal reasons, i.e. the England set up still being annoyed at him for missing the Under 21 championship in the summer, McClaren and Pearce have both been quoted as saying this has been long forgotten.
Certainly his footballing ability qualifies him to be in the squad... he is a better right midfielder than Aaron Lennon, Shaun Wright Phillips and yes... Jermaine Jenas.
Surely he can't have been left out over claims of arrogance??? what with massive egos like Ashley 'I've never committed a foul in my life' Cole and Rio 'No-one is harder than me' Ferdinand in there.
Don't worry though Rovers fans.. Dave will get the chance soon enough, of that I am sure.
If he doesn't, McClaren is guilty of everything that everone accuses him of.
