It seems that Fabio Capelloâ€™s England training camp is a little like being back at school, since Capello addresses his players only by their last names. 😀
Fabio Capello – headmaster to the England players?
The disciplined regime of the Italian also started with a list of rules ,which seemed just fine to us. Of course our very own Michael Owen is with the England squad, and he seemed more concerned with Newcastle United than England, when he talked to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today:
Michael Owen spoke today on the new regime with England:
â€œItâ€™s nice to be in the squad.â€ â€œAnd everyone will be intrigued to see how things are going to go.â€
But it seems like Michael still has thoughts of the game against Middlesbrough, and is still disappointed the Magpies dropped two points. as he continued:
â€œI got the goal I wanted, but we didnâ€™t get the win, which was frustrating.â€œThe first half was poor from both sides, and then it livened up in the second half.”
â€œThey changed to 4-4-2 and we had to change our formation to press up a bit â€“ and thatâ€™s what happened.â€
â€œThe game consequently improved after that and it was a case of whether we got a second or whether they would rescue an equalizer.â€
â€œUnfortunately, it was the latter of the two.â€
Itâ€™s good to hear Michael talk these days, and he seems dedicated to the Newcastle cause, and of course we all know he could become such an important player for us in the coming seasons â€“ hope so.
