We just wrote a piece on Argentina’s almost triumphant return yesterday to Buenos Aires, and in truth the Argentine side was a credit to their country – unlike a certain England side too full of prima donnas.
Capello – he’s staying on – unlike some senior England players
We read the articles yesterday in the Sunday papers, with some un-named senior players blaming Capello for everything and the kitchen sink yesterday.
Capello made mistakes, he’s admitted that, but the look on his face when the England team played like little kids against Algeria, was there for all to see – he was a shocked as anybody.
And it’s hardly Capello’s fault that his goalkeeper throws the ball in the net, and against Germany the England players defended little better than schoolboys, but only just better.
If they can find those “senior players” who were quoted criticizing Capello for anything and everything yesterday, they should name them, and they should never play ever again for England. It’s been that kind of cat-calling that has ruined the England team for far too long.
In polls in the English papers, it’s very clear the fans hold the players responsible for the debacle more than anybody else – and once again these supposedly great players are too scared to perform on the big stage.
They were hardly a credit to England during the World Cup – were they?
But surely that is the last we’ll see sof some of the older England players who are in the team regularly, but have rarely ever produced their club form for their country.
