Former England captain Tony Adams does not think Luke Shaw should have gone to the World Cup – but now that he is there he believes the teenage ace should start.

Adams said he disagreed with Roy Hodgson’s decision to pick the 18-year-old left-back ahead of Ashley Cole for the tournament in Brazil.

But, having decided to take him as one for the future, the former Arsenal defender believes that Shaw should be starting, not sat on the bench as understudy to Leighton Baines.

He said: “I was all in favour of Ashley Cole, it must be said. I thought it was a mistake not to take our most experienced left-back.

“If you’re taking that decision with Ashley, why not take all kids.

“I think Luke might get some minutes. I think he can play one up in midfield as well.

“He’s a big talent for the future, and I think that’s what this is – it’s a move for the future.

“But I would put him ahead of Leighton Baines if you’re taking that decision.

“No European team has ever won the World Cup in South America and, if we’re working towards Russia in 2018, then let’s play him.”

While Shaw’s former teammate, Rickie Lambert, has already departed Saints this summer, to join Liverpool, there will be a lot of support for him in this part of the world if he steps onto the pitch against Italy tonight.

Adams believes that Lambert, who he sees as a similar style of player to Alan Shearer, should be in the line-up.

“I would play him,” he said. “Brazil were quite direct on Thursday night and they played a lot of balls off of Fred.

“He pinned the centre half quite a few times, and Oscar and Neymar were able to play off him.

“In 1996, we had Alan Shearer, and Rickie Lambert has got a lot of the same type of qualities as him. He’s the type of player I would play.”

Of what might still be deemed the Saints trio, it is Adam Lallana who appears to have the best chance of starting tonight, though.

Yet, while Adams believes he could be a valuable option this evening, he says he would opt for some of England’s quicker players over Lallana normally.

“I would want a bit of pace in my team,” he said.

“I think going forward we’re second to none in the tournament.

“I don’t see a better offensive unit, and Lallana will certainly add to that.

“But I’m not too sure he will start him, though, and maybe neither would I, but he will be useful.

“Against Italy, I would give him at least a half, because I think they will play defensively and they will put people behind the ball, and Lallana’s the type of player who can open teams up.”

Adams believes it is vital England get something from tonight’s game, and he is confident if they don’t lose that Hodgson’s men will progress beyond the group stage.

However, he believes that, defensively, the squad will not prove to be strong enough to get much further than the quarter-finals.

“I think the public are quite realistic, and so am I,” he said.

“I don’t think I have spoken to anyone who said we are going to win it, and I don’t think with our defensive unit that we can win it.

“When you get into the quarter-finals, you are playing against top countries with top talent, and I don’t think defensively we will keep enough clean sheets to win the tournament.

“We’ve got good players there, but they’re not great players.

“The last two World Cups were won by countries with outstanding central defenders – Sergio Ramos with Spain and Fabio Cannavaro with Italy.

“But you never know. Seven games is all it is.

“I think if we win or draw against Italy we will get out of the group, because I think we will beat Costa Rica. Uruguay are tricky if we lose against Italy.

“As long as we don’t lose to Italy, I think we will get out of the group.

“The round of 16 looks like it would be a favourable draw for us, not against a top country, but the quarter-final looks like a Brazil or Spain, and I think that, defensively, we are not going to be good enough.”

Tony Adams was speaking after hosting an exclusive ‘Talking Tactics’ session at WestQuay, where he spoke with England fans ahead of the team’s opening World Cup match.

Announcement Monday on the new Manager. My money is on Koeman. If he can ignite Saints to play like Holland did on Friday night for Van Gaal then an exciting new season is in prsospect.

And hopefully the "want away" players will change their minds.

It has been a few years since ive posted oh this site, preferring to keep quiet, watching as a happy voyeur as we grew more and more in influence, and at the end of last season were on the verge of becoming a real footballing power. I last posted around the time of people like Ray the Turk, and when Dan was posting more regularily, we were still in league one, but you could feel the inevitable momentum building, and the last five years have been amazing.

Trough all of this i've read every day peoples comments, and followed the Daily Echo daily. At the end of last season, i knew a battle would begin, because the top six clubs were aware that Saints wanted to play in their playground too. It is so blatantly obvious that right now we are being bombarded by a virtual media cyber war, the like of which has been never seen before, directed at a team that was becoming a threat. The media has an exceptionally powerful role in today's society, and oh boy are we on the receiving end of it right now.

Why am i saying all this today? Why am i choosing this point to start posting again? Its because I'm really angry with the Echo this morning. I've reached the end of my fuse finally, and its a very long fuse. Why Echo, this morning, are you not reporting the news that Ronald Koeman is almost certainly going to be our manager. I desperately been looking these past few weeks for ANY SIGNS OF GOOD NEWS COMING FROM OUR LOCAL PAPER!!!. I woke this morning, in the hope id see something positive written about the club i love so much, and nothing at all, just this article on Luke Shaw. I'm just staggered to see that the Echo, are clearly being manuipulated by forces that can only be media driven anti Southampton. People please comment on this.

I hope and pray that Ronald Koeman steadies the ship, brings our clearly "Tapped up" top players all together under the Staplewood Roof, calls a media conference, and ripps into everyone. What has happened these past few weeks has been disgusting, and im fed up with it.

Well said. The new manager will certainly have a tough enough time persuading everyone to stay as it is after four weeks rubbing shoulders with players from the big boys and doubtless getting tapped up. The Echo hasn't helped at all with its daily muck stirring. But then neither have the fans who come on here daily to sling dirt at the owner and the Board, both of whom don't deserve it. The facts remain that one player has been sold and the rest are still here quite rightly waiting til the new manager arrives to sort things out. After the dust settles I'd advise the club to revert back to Cortese's position and ban the Echo and not deal with it. It's a disgrace and like some players, completely disloyal.

I would think AL would be a better choice to face the Italians as his trickery would have them fouling all the time, giving us the chance of a few free kicks on goal, I would like to see Luke come on with about 20 to go as the ageing Italians would not cope with his pace

Top post mate - thanks. Agree with every statement there.
Unfortunately the Echo seems to jump and milk every negative rumour no matter how little substance there is in it. A chink of sunlight shines through and they shut up shop or want "Confirmation" of the facts first - extraordinary for what is supposed to be our local paper.

I dont think the Echo has covered itself in much glory the past few weeks. Merely reporting on other rumours and adding to the negative angle of hearsay rumour and
gossip. A thread on here reporting Talksport and The Mirrors story on an impending managerial arrival might have been better than reporting the negative views of Tony Adams who didnt exactly excel as a manager or even endear himself to Pompey fans.

I hope Lovren Shaw and Lallana reconsider their transfer requests when they get back from the World Cup especially if as expected Ronald Koeman takes charge next week. Lallana preferably staying as Captain; a position he probably wouldnt get elsewhere.

I think it's important not to confuse the news with what appears in the Echo. They tend to carefully separate the wheat from the chaff and then print the chaff. The rule of this that progress is not news, but trouble is.To get the real picture you have to read between the lies.

Anyhow, welcome back. It gets quite lonely on here as just about the only sensible poster and indeed the only Guly and Fox fan. And people on here don't seem to realise that looking for a piece of toast to sit on is not at all odd for a person who thinks he's a poached egg.

I woke this morning, in the hope id see something positive written about the club i love so much, and nothing at all, just this article on Luke Shaw. I'm just staggered to see that the Echo, are clearly being manuipulated by forces that can only be media driven anti Southampton. People please comment on this.

I hope and pray that Ronald Koeman steadies the ship, brings our clearly "Tapped up" top players all together under the Staplewood Roof, calls a media conference, and ripps into everyone. What has happened these past few weeks has been disgusting, and im fed up with it.
I fully agree with your post ..
.

I have posted on these topics before and have always been disgusted by the lack of positive articles from the Echo.
.
This is not always in relation to sport but on many everyday issues involving the people of Southampton. It seems that their intentions are to whip up doubt and negativity about the City and club that we love.

Welcome back, Freeroamer, and take note DE. No one's asking you to be a propaganda mouthpiece for The Saints but you've lost a lot of respect in the eyes of the average reader these past few weeks.

As for Adams, well, he lost most people's respect long before he offered his views on Luke Shaw.

you filthy peeping tom! ;0)
great post and couldn't agree more!

we had DE stories about the bookies odds on MP leaving etc and yet the same odds (if not worse) for Koeman joining and we get nothing! I would love to know why they don't want to `cut n paste` the mirrors article on Koeman joining yet are so very quick to `cut n paste` from the mail when they/ashton prints another negative rumour, most of which have no quotes or supporting evidence.
why do the put negative story after negative story? well because people post a lot more when there are negative stories/rumours and some actually believe what they read!
The DE has lost the respect of so many fans this summer and I wouldn't be surprised if their circulation as taken a hit. would be interesting if we all decided to ignore a negative story on here and left no comments. would they take the hint? probably not unfortunately.

anyway, stop watching through the window and come in and join the party a bit more!

Tony Adams was a very good Defender but a failure in Management so his comments should be taken with a pinch of salt and we should be relieved he's not the England or Southampton Manager, he's probably a nice man who can only talk a good game but lacks Man Management skills, Glen Hoddle is another example

really happy if Keoman is our new manager, he will have at a great advantage over our spurs rivals this time as they will be going back to basics to be potty trained!! as i see it the way to win the games of football is to score more goals than your opponent, be it to score more goals than the 0pposition or to stop them scoring more goals then us, at saints we have until recent years opted for the former although both give the same result.whatever the outcome all us saints supporters have to do is get behind our team and (spur) them on. Forget all the hassle we at saints have had to endure from the media and stick it to them on the pitch this season by showing them we are a great team, onwards and upwards, come on you SAINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tony Adams was a very good Defender but a failure in Management so his comments should be taken with a pinch of salt and we should be relieved he's not the England or Southampton Manager, he's probably a nice man who can only talk a good game but lacks Man Management skills, Glen Hoddle is another example
He failed at driving once or twice too.
...I suggest there was more than one thing that stopped him being Saints manager too?

Saint Jinx says...

I am very proud to see 3 Saints players there but I did think that Ashley Cole should have gone. I don't believe in this notion of giving young players experience but no game time. We are there to try and win it or what's the point.
Also, I think that Luke does have some defensive limitations.
