Ben Gibson: Will he ever be capped?
 
 
It seems as if Southgate doesn't fancy him. You'd think he'd have got a chance but now the likes of Maguire and Gomez have stepped in. Gareth likes ball-playing centre-halves it seems.

I'm not sure he'd have stepped into that category himself, mind, good as he was.

Ben may have to wait for the next manager and hope he can play his way in. He wouldn't let England down.

Emotions aside...he is not at the level of maguire, Gomez or stones at the minute.

I can't see how Southgate can pick him when he is in the championship and his form is average.

It's clearly because he's playing in the Championship, or he wouldn't have picked Gibson over Maguire in the first place.

But Gibson's not been inspired form this season anyway.

I'd be surprised if any player playing in the championship were to be pick regardless of how well they were playing.

The press would crucify him for picking a championship player over one of the England youth players who've won something recently.

He is miles behind the likes Keane, Tarkowski, Mee, chambers and theres probably more just can't think. Not saying they are all international class just showing that there are lots to choose from. I do hope they are all

Chambers has played less than 90 minutes of Football all this season, none of that league, afaik.
Would be a shocking decision to pick him over Gibson, if only for match sharpness.

Sadly, I don't think he will. Will end up close, like Wheater, but no cigar. Although IMHO he certainly deserved a game last season.

Plenty of time for him still but if we donít gain promotion he will have to head up a division if he has a suitor, itís clear he wonít be in the mix playing in the championship

I mean, like Wheater, that he has been in the squad and not picked.

Next 18 months will determine Gibsonís international future, staying with us certainly wonít have helped his prospects in the short term. Either we need to get promoted and become an established Premier League club or Gibson needs to move to one, the way caps are awarded and most players are getting an opportunity Iím sure given those circumstances heíll get another look in.

Never, he is vastly overrated. Anyone noticed how poor he is going forward off corners aswell, complete fanny in the air. We should have sold him for 20m, terrible business by the club.

hes probably not too fussed about playing for england above boro. staying in the championship and signing a new contract wont have helped his case of getting in the england squad.

if he was playing in the PL he'd be selected & playing..

Maguire I like.. though he like many England defenders has issues, he's certainly lacking a left foot & looks suspect in possession under pressure several times..

Southgate will insist we play tippy tappy from the back, we'll lose possession needlessly & concede a goal..

BG is a good organiser & committed player.. mentally he's right up there with the best England have to offer.. not in his best form at the moment.. though more than good enough, on his game, for the England squad.

His best chance at the moment is going up with Boro this season.
In the Prem he stands a chance because you can't blame Southgate for being niggardly in handing out new caps.

Jones, Smalling, Stones, Cahill, Dier, Keane & Maguire are all preferred to Gibson.

On form, the addition of Mee, Tarkowski, Dunk and Lascelles should be above Gibson.

Holgate, Gomez & Fry are potential future prospects. If Chambers could get a starting spot somewhere he would probably be above Gibson too based on his performances with us.

I would say that Gibson is a long way down the list as it stands. Not necessarily his fault, there are simply better and more in favour defenders.

'Will he ever be capped?'

He's still developing, if he picks up his game and plays regularly for a side at the top level then there's a good chance, at the moment he's not good enough.

Ben Gibson: Will he ever be capped?

 
If he'd got a good move, I think he's better than Maguire and potentially Keane & Stones.

He did right not to move to a poor lower half side, if he had the chance of Everton or Southampton for example, and turned it down, he probably burned his best shot at playing for England and indeed going to the world cup.

Mind, i don't see the argument why he can't pick a championship player if he's going to pick Solanke... I think the way we think about football has become so warped in this country. It is completely big side obsessed.

He's got a few years yet, then 5 or 6 years at his peak.

England X1
Pickford - Everton
Bertrand -Southampton
McGuire - Leicester
Gibson - Boro
Loftus-Cheek -Palace
Livermore - West Brom
Cook - Bournemouth
Cork - Burnley
Vardy - Leicester
Abraham - Swansea

You're right - I can't get a right back [:P]
