Weeks before the World Cup kicked off in South Africa, a visitor to the site accused me of being negative when I said that the England team didn’t stand a chance of winning the tournament.
Well guess what folks – IT’S A WRAP!
Germany destroyed England’s “chances” of going home with the World Cup today in a highly controversial match.
Germany went on to easily win 4-1 after an encounter in which a wrongly disallowed goal had prevented England completing a comeback when the score stood at 2-1.
However Germany was the better side and England’s performance during the game and from the very start of the tournament had been DIRE (as predicted).
But now it looks as if the media is gearing up to blame England manager Fabio Capello for his team’s poor showing. But as far as I am concerned it’s all down to the players. Those over-rated, over pampered bunch of LOSERS cannot go up against the big boys, and struggle to beat less experienced teams (e.g. Algeria and Slovenia).
They are a joke!
This country needs to focus on nurturing its young homegrown footballing talent ( the Under-21s) so that they can then go on to compete in future tournaments with ease.
Forget about Rooney, Lampard, Gerrard, Terry and Heskey etc. Forget about the old guard. The focus should be on the next generation.
The German’s did just that and have put together an inexperienced but brilliant team of young players, who could now actually go on to win the World Cup.
If I was Capello I would just hand in my resignation and go on to manage a group of unspoilt players who are passionate, hungry and want to win.
Managing the England squad isn’t worth the time or effort.
