…just a few more to go.
Never trust a slaphead who has facial hair – tache or beard – they are lying to you everyday and taking you for an idiot. They think they’re fooling you into mistaking that gleaming chrome dome for a full head of hair because there’s some ratty fuzz under their nose or on their chin, it’s just one step above the Bobby Charlton comb over.
The F.A. chief executive Brian Barwick is a prime example of this, one thankfully we won’t have to put up with much longer when he departs at the end of the year.
Yes the man who sat there a little over two years ago and said the Steve McClaren was his – and the F.A.’s – first choice to replace Svennis as England manager…
He was my first choice, the FA board’s unanimous choice.
My first choice was always Steve. That might be difficult for people to get their heads across. Brian Barwick
Yes we found it difficult because we all know that Martin O’Neill was his first choice, we know that he didn’t have the balls to stand up for his choice. And so we had the Scolari fiasco,what a fuck up Barwick made of all that, coming back with his tail between his legs but without the man we could have had quite easily and could have done something with the players at his disposal, which lead to them taking on McClown because that’s all there was in his and the F.A.’s view and what a great decision that was.
After a disastrous 18 months that ended with the Wally with the Brolly, bumbling Brian was back at it overlooking the best candidates for the job or buggering up any chance we had to get the best guy for the job so we ended up with Capello. And he leaves with yet another porkie…
I am sad to be leaving the FA – an organisation it has been a privilege to lead – but I believe it is in the best interests of all parties. Brian Barwick
Yeah I bet you think it’s in your best interest, is that because you see this ending tits up like your last appointment.
And it all happened before last night’s debacle at Wembley, with the undeserved 2-2 draw with the Czechs.
Everything is still in place under Capello that made Svennis and McClown’s reigns such damp squib disasters. The same players who have failed miserably time and time again in the same positions, playing the same game – giving the ball away in a slow lumbering manner, dropping back and thumping the ball to no one.
When someone needed to come in and make real changes, to say goodbye to the failures that are guaranteed their shirt so don’t really bother even trying – Beckham, Gerrard, Lampard, Cole J, Cole A, Ferdinand, Terry – we get a guy who has their names first on the team sheet. Every time an England manager has favourites and sticks with them no matter what it costs us before it costs him.
Svennis and McClown at least had an opening moment of honeymoon glory – McClown’s 4-0 thumping of the Euro champions who turned out to be utter crap but who can forget that magical night for Svennis in the Olympiastadion in Munich when the scoreboard read Deutschland 1 – England 5. What has Fabio had, a 2-1 win over Switzerland who were it has to be said the best of the two hosts from the Euros and that really is the best thin you can say about them.
But then anyone that thinks Wes Brown and Jermaine Jenas are international players doesn’t deserve any better.
