Carrager the squad player, never first choice for england
Member Name: JEStevens
Advantages: Left Right Centre Midfield, Plus defensive midfielder
Disadvantages: Has to face terry, ferdinand, campbell and woodgate to get a place.
i follow liverpool as a second team and have done for a number of years. however at liverpool he has been overshadowed for a number of years, first off by michael owen and much more recently by steven gerrard.
Carra holds the record for england under-21 appearences, this highlights the problem that jamie faces in furthering his international career. while at liverpool he his umero numero uno in a defence built around him whereas in the england team he has to face the two best central defenders possibly in the world - john terry and rio ferdinand (although i'd put carrager above ferdinand for his concentration levels).
Most of the international appearences that carrager has made have been as substitutes due to this fact and also because of the versatility he has.
Summary: Carrager - always in the squad but not the team
