Al quick off mark with crap talk

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

IT didn’t take long for football pun­dits to start talk­ing shite. Alan Shearer was so des­per­ate to do it, he didn’t wait for the Pre­mier League to kick off.

Speak­ing about New­cas­tle United on Ra­dio 5 Live last Fri­day, the Geordie baldie mused: “I don’t think it’s a healthy thing to have too many French play­ers in one dress­ing room. If things start to go against you, then lit­tle cliques ap­pear.”

Pre­sum­ably, English play­ers don’t form cliques, or play­ers of any other na­tion­al­ity for that mat­ter.

Arse­nal’s 2003-4 squad in­cluded six French­men, in ad­di­tion to boss Arsene Wenger, and they won the league af­ter go­ing 38 games un­beaten.

Just say­ing, Al.
