well neither robben and ballack have been the reason that joe hasn't played so far so I will say Jose!!! Get him out!

We can't play all our players at once as manu, spurs or pool would want to. We have not stockpiled players as they have done this season. I am confident Joe Cole will perform when his opportunity comes. That is the meaning of competition for places. Under previous management it might have been expected that Joe might have played more often but who will Joe displace from the starting lineup at present?

Let's be realistic and remember that Joe came back from a long term injury and is not yet back to his "old" form. With his chance coming and he can get there there will be no problem since there is no Robben to compete for that position.

Hard to tell if he is back to his old form if he never actually plays however based on his performance for England the other night I think we can safely say he is not struggling for form. I would like to see him play tomorrow.

I'm with Loz. And, while I didn't see the England game, he's far too good to just another sub. JM's gotta rotate a bit, otherwise what's the point having 'two players for each position'?

Rotation is what the manager indicated earlier on (a few weeks ago) when he said there won't be untouchables like last season. He can see what we don't see during training sessions. He knows when a player is ready to start a game. We speculate and discuss/debate. We should more often than not trust his judgement (even though I sometimes question it especially playing 'Pool during the past two seasons) and think that he is closer to the players and know their current form and physical condition.
