I don't see what Ferdinand has done to warrant losing his place in the side?
We all talk about having a good squad and players who should step up and take their chances, well that is exactly what Ferdinand has done. If we just drop him because Mensah is fit again, especially when he has played so well recently, then what does that say to our squad players?
Only for Mensah to get injured again next week and then Ferdinand then has to come back in knowing he is second fiddle whatever he does...
I think when fit Mensagh is our best defender, but like Bardsley has done, everyone should wait there turn.
Onuoha - Bramble - Ferdinand - Bardsley
Elmo - Henderson - Malbranque - Sessegnon
Mingolet, Mensah, Angeleri, Zendon, Muntari, Colback, Noble
