England’s Wags yesterday demanded the immediate lifting of their ban from next year’s World Cup – claiming they are vital to success on the pitch.
Coach Fabio Capello has said Cheryl Cole, Victoria Beckham, Alex Curran and the other wives and girlfriends can only see their men one day a week in South Africa.
But the Wags claim the team is likely to struggle without them and say many of the players feel the same.
TV presenter Lizzie Cundy, married to ex-Tottenham player Jason Cundy and friend of the Wags, said: “Five weeks is a long time for the team to be away from the family environment and a few of the players believe it is a mistake.
“I know a lot of the players are very disappointed their families cannot spend much time with them.
“People don’t realise the girls are very supportive of their partners and play a big role in their success.”
The Wags were criticised for their non-stop partying and shopping during the 2006 campaign in Germany. Continue Reading……
Do these worthless freeloading women (excluding Victoria Beckham, Cheryl Cole, Coleen Rooney because they have careers and make their own money) really believe that the England team will struggle during the tournament without them????
They cannot be serious! They must be smoking crack!
The England team made up of supposedly world class players – “the creme de la creme”, alway struggle everytime the World Cup comes around. They almost lose to less experienced teams (e.g. Trinidad in 2006) and then eventually crash out of the tournament absolute laughing stocks!
If anything these women are nothing but media whoring distractions (For those who follow football remember World Cup 2006 in Germany???).
The last time this country won the World Cup was in 1966. When you think about the MILLIONS of pounds that this country invests in to football each year, and we still have not tasted another World Cup victory since then, it’s just damn right SHAMEFUL!!!
These players who earn £80,000 a week seriously need to fix up!
Instead of team members spending their “days off” during the tournament with partners, children, mothers, fathers, grandparents and pets, their time should be spent training, studying the competition and talking tactics.
In 2010 the focus for the entire team should be on giving 110% and WINNING, not on spending time with wives/girlfriends during “days off”, who are only interested in the media attention and a free trip to South Africa.
The ban should not be lifted!
