It seems that Fabio Capello is doing some soul searching to try to understand why his players froze at the World Cup and performed nowhere near their potential.
Fabio Capello – more excuses for England
A close friend of Capello said today:
“Fabio now thinks it would have been best to let the players go away with their wives, girlfriends and families at the end of the season.””They could have let off steam, had a rest and then come back fresh for the World Cup finals.”
“But he was so determined to do well in South Africa that he took them to Austria to train and prepare.” “The problem when he got there, though, was how lifeless and knackered the players were after a season in the Premier League.”
“He had never seen his players so tired and jaded – of course, by then it was too late to do anything about it.” “But he won’t make the same mistake again. He’s learned a valuable lesson.”
When you don’t win things then you have to some up with the excuses as to the why – and the statement above is just that – another potential excuse and reason why England were completely hopeless and froze once again on the big stage, with all the world watching.
They were hardly a credit to England.
It has nothing to do with them being tired at all – or why are all the other players who have had long hard tough seasons too, performing so well in this World Cup?
Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben didn’t look too tired for the Netherlands yesterday, as they knocked hot favorites Brazil out of the tournament 2-1, and they both had long European seasons with their clubs Inter-Milan and Bayern Munich with both reaching the European Champions League Final.
It’s always reasons or results and since we’ve had no results from England for 46 years – all we hear is all the reasons. which translate into excuses – it’s really that simple.
