If you were the boss who would start out of beckham/wright phillips and owen/defoe ? For me it would be defoe and wright phillips. I appreciate that beckham and owen used to basically carry the team leading upto 2002 and bailed them out on numerous occasions but these days they just dont seem to cut the mustard, be it lack of desire or whatever. For me they were the worst two outfield players for england at euro 2004 by a mile. On the other hand defoe and swp ooze class and pace, and swp particularly would imo compliment gerrard and lampard a lot more than beckham.
