Last night confirmed to me exactly why I have no real interest in International Football anymore. England's footballers ignoring the press? Pathetic. Common sense first: you cannot take on the press and expect to win Secondly, who do the players think they are? The reason why they have their multi million pound contracts, cars, pop star women and national adulation is because of the press. Sven Goran Erikssson showed his true colours: backing the players over their silence yet few hours earlier he dropped the player (who he said on Saturday he would not drop) who they were all being silent for. Talk about hypocrisy, surely the way to support their cause would be to back the guy by keeping him in the team. By dropping him he justifies everything that has been written about David James in the last few days. Mr Eriksson is out to save his own skin, the fact that Beckham runs the players and not him tells me it's time for him to go. The England Squad sounds like a cosy little break/back scratch for the players. A few ideas from me: 1. Sack Eriksson - bring in Harry Redknapp - yes old hat and old school but he would have none of this pathetic player power and would only select guys interested in playing for their country. 2. Drop Beckham from squad and make Gerrard or Campbell captain. Gerrard in particular is the only top flight player of recent times to show any decency (turning down a big pay cheque to stay at Liverpool) 3. Drop Gary Neville from squad - Decent right back but being a PFA rep, he is always out to make sure the players get their own way. Let's face it, noone really likes the litrle weasel...lose him Gone are the days of patriotism or loyalty - instead of settling for it, it's should be fought...starting with the National team. What do we think?
