- Capello to resign if England fail on Wednesday
Sort of goes without saying doesn't it? Be funny if he tried to stay on after drawing with the USA, Algeria and Slovenia, if only for the sheer brass neck of it.
Anyhow, I favour the brave sons of St George to put the Slovenians to the sword and all will be well.Posted 7 years ago
The fact is the manager doesn't play in the team, he just picks the first eleven, it's upto those 23 players to step up and do what they are payed for, yes payed for after all they get payed to play for England through the FA, if anyone else other than footballers didn't do they're job they would be sacked, I'm working with a German bloke at the moment that said before the WC that England wouldn't do good as they've too many players of world class ability that are so wrapped up in themselves to care about playing for a team, they just want to make themselves look good.Posted 7 years agochewkwMember
Why keep blaming the manager? Everyone knows even a world class manager cannot turn things around if he has a bunch of celebrities that only feed on fans' hard earn pocket money and their egos.
C'mon are you in the dream land to think that England can win another trophy? For foreseeable future the bet should be to see if England will be able to proceed to the 2nd round.
Celebrity first => represent England => No incentive => Shite.
2nd rated English player => represent England => incentive to become superstar => Play their socks off.

They should still win 😕Posted 7 years ago
Regardless of the two terrible performances, they did get there and everyone really knows that they are better than this as players.
Whatever your opinion on their wages, cars, affairs, clothes etc etc they ain't too shabby as footballers.
That said I am saying 'should' and if whatevers wrong isn't sorted well then maybe they wont.
Still to this day I can never understand why a player is sellected on how good he is playing in a certain position for his club, then put in a different one for his country?BruceMMember
I don't want to see Capello go.
We could go through a manager at every euro/world cup if this continues, if we do not qualify let him have the time to analyse what happened and try again. To my mind we have only had one bad match. vs the USA we where certainly not great, but not terrible. Still time to turn this around, its the character of the players which will be tested from this point.Posted 7 years agotrailmonkeyMember
He's a dead man walking. The only way he can improve things is by changing the way we play. He's insisted that he won't do that so any change will be perceived as bending to player power, which is another route to the exit door.
Just a thought but if he does insist on 4-4-2 doesn't it make sense to drop Rooney and play Defoe and Crouch ? Proven together at Spurs and both score goals.Posted 7 years agojoe@brookscyclesMember

Yes, but:Posted 7 years ago
Can you *not* pick him? Seriously, can any manager leave one of the world's top 5 on the bench, in preference for Peter Crouch? I don't think there's a manager in the world with the balls to do that at a world up.
It was said yesterday that the combined Algerian teams wage didn't amount to the lowest England players wage, enough said really…
I don't know paid for what they're playing for England but I'm prepared to guess it's dwarfed by their club wages.
I struggle to work out what pay has to do with it. If they take up the option to represent their country they should aim to win, regardless of the wage. As it happens I don;t think there was much wrong with either the will to win or the effort put in on Friday. There were plenty of other problems (e.g. tactical, technical, mental preparation) but they wanted to win, tried to win and were obviously hacked off that they didn't.
David Beckham will be the next manager I reckon
God help us.Posted 7 years agomr potatoheadMember
if you look at crapello's gestures and body language on the line you'd think that he's no more impressed than the rest of us.once the players are on the field it's largely down to them and they just slip into the same hald arsed shit they have done for most recent managersPosted 7 years agomike-at-dialledbikesMember
Capello is pretty blameless compared to the players and their lack of endeavour.
If Robert Green didn't have butter fingers, England would be joint top of the group and only needing a draw on Wednesday.
A mountain to climb against Slovenia, but not insurmountable if the players get their acts together.Posted 7 years ago
