I couldn't care less that certain players chose not to be in the standby squad. Kelly ahead of Richards ( who for me should have been in the original squad) is crazy
Yep, it's now bordering on insanity, Richards can play centre-half and full-back so is the logical replacement. I have some sympathy for Hodgson, he's been thrown in at the deep end, but if he chooses to let players like Rio , Richards, Adam Johnson, Sturridge, Carrick and Crouch idle their time away on the beach, then he can't moan about a threadbare squad. There are some decent replacements out there, he's just choosing not to pick them.
I hope he knows what he's doing because, from just outside Clitheroe, it looks to me like he's just guessing and keeping his fingers crossed.
