Wayne Rooney's injury would trouble England more than Manchester United | Kevin McCarra | Sport | The Guardian
While I am a huge fan of Jermaine Defoe, I like the idea of Gerrard and Lampard playing in a midfield 5 with Barry sitting deep, Lennon or Walcott wide right and Joe Cole / James Milner on the left cutting in. it would be lovely to have a proper left winger out there, but if Heskey plays alone up front it would allow the wingers, especially the left winger, to be an inside forward who could provide a goal threat. I think the movement and class of that 5 would give any team problems, and using Heskey as the pivot /focal point/ battering ram would allow Lampard and Gerrard to attack and be goal threats while Barry sits deep.
