...and I'd have Goode over both of them.
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

I think Brown (34) has been absolutely fantastic for England in the past but I think he has slowed down and is more inconsistent now. Goode (31) may well be the best fullback at the current time. However, I would go with Watson (25) who has age on his side, is fast and good under the high ball. I don't think that we are going to win the WC this time round, just not quite there yet, but in 4 years time it could be a different matter. Give Watson a regular slot, injury permitting, and he could really become an excellent and confident full back in the squad.

I don't see the problem with what he's saying ... he still believes he "is the best English full-back", selection "is one man's opinion" and he accepts that. If I was his coach, that would be what I want him to be saying - followed up by " and I'm going to prove it to you".

As for my opinion, Goode is better.

What I don't like is why the BBC have gone to him for a chat right now, when he's not been selected, or why he says, "I don't feel comfortable going into details [about the Teo incident] when the guys over there are preparing for a massive tournament". Dude, you're still talking to the media about yourself and England selection and the guys are still in Japan, preparing for a massive tournament!

Never rated Brown. In my mind even when he was being selected regularly there were other fullbacks I would have selected ahead of him.
But as you say, selection is one mans opinion.

There are very few, if any, full backs around that offer everything you would want; good positional sense, tackles well, good under the high ball, attacks with pace, communicates with his wingers well and is consistent. Out of all of those, it depends on what EJ sees as the most important and will select accordingly. In my mind, pace and attacking flair are what he sees as essentials if we are to win the World Cup and has selected accordingly. However we see Goode and Brown, neither can compete on that front with Watson and Daly

Surely he's not doing himself any favours in the event of an injury, that might have seen him get a call from Eddie - probably blown that chance now

I agree that Goode is a fantastic footballer that reads the game very well, but for me lacks the pace of an international 15.
