Blame Capello

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Without wanting to sound like an armchair manager, what the fuck are you playing at Capello?

Seriously, the team is playing unbelievably badly and I’m afraid I have to lay the blame with Capello.  I normally defend managers when people criticise them because the 11 players on the pitch are supposed to be professionals and if tactics aren’t working they should use their initiative but in this case there are clearly no tactics to change.

The players are milling round the pitch, completely clueless.  They’re getting the ball and haven’t got a clue what to do with it.  The team is obviously suffering from having no time to practice together as a team because they don’t know who they’re going to be playing with until 2 hours before the game starts.

And why is Wayne Rooney still playing?  I really never thought I would say this but he’s a liability right now.  He’s worried about picking up an injury, he’s backing off from tackles and tonight he was limping at one point.  Rest him if that’s what he needs but he shouldn’t be playing if he’s not up to the job.

    Over paid, over priced over valued.

    No heart or passion.

    Minds already on the next season in the Premiership. Although most on last night’s performance would struggle to start for a Championship side.

    Professional footballer’s with pride in their profession and country should be able to over come managerial shortcomings. Some one on the pitch should be shouting, screaming and kicking backsides rather than composing their excuse for the press conference.

    As a Scotsman, I think Capello is doing a fantastic job, he’s doing you proud

    Axel says ‘not being an expert and being scottish’

    Really? You do surprise me. I thought the Scottish were experts at everything viz banking, politics, football, rugby, to name but a few.
