Forgive this little rant.
There is a lot of talk about all that is wrong with English football at present.
But wait, it’s all right, today is one of the truly great days, ‘Grand Slam Sunday’… yet doesn’t this show just how bad everything is?
Open up the sports pages, big full two page adverts show images of these great heroes, these modern day warriors on the battlefield ready to fight. Let’s face it , isn’t it passion and work rate that makes our game great?
As a football lover watching Arsenal usually provides the antidote to the clench fisted bluster we all love. But when their 16 players were listed at the beginning of the game did I miss an Englishman was listed among them? What chance does
Mr Capello have?
And for the best (or should that read the richest) four clubs in the country, the quality of the 1 1/2 games so far is nothing to write home about.
