As usual, swanny is having a go at overpaid footballers by wondering “how many would have pulled out if the World Cup was like the old Ryder Cup and players turned out for nothing?”
I suggest the answer would be zero as It was widely reported last month the England players were donating their match fees to charity - as they did in the qualifying rounds also.
I guess swanny ignored that as it would mean kudos to the players and swanny doesn’t give kudos. As far as England’s World Cup chances are concerned, they hinge on one thing and one thing only.
Rooney will at some stage get sent off and miss a match. How will England cope when this happens?
If he gets sent off in the group phase, will Capello drop him completely, in which case Heskey becomes surplus to requirement?
Rooney is a matchwinner and a matchkiller. Next season, crowds will either be lauding him or booing. No middle ground. I fear the latter. Joe Cole will be the star in our team.
Bamboozler ENglANd have as much chance of winning the World Cup as you have of winning a prize for this column.
That is zero, unless prizes get awarded for most repetitive drivel.
so you want to charge admission money to watch Asim Butt batting at Bretton gate.
It wouldn’t take too long to collect with only up to six people watching, sometimes including me.
But I would prefer to pay to watch Bracebridge Heath or even oundle, even if the friendliness at Bretton gate has now improved enough for them to offer a cup of tea.
sorry, but I will stay and watch Market deeping. Alan Green
