Who loves ya baby?
I can see why Capello has made the decision, obviously Theo hasn’t had an affair with a team mate’s Ex, or spent a night with a senior citizen prostitute, or failed to complete a drugs test nor has he the ability to do the robot or go to night clubs and piss up the counter. Theo has also neglected to cheat on his partner (twice) or decide he doesn’t want to play for England then change his mind. Theo is also guilty of having a better international strike rate than Emille Heskey and not having the bling accoutrements of the Sp*rs contingent. I also understand he’s rubbish at doing the Robot.
Those of you who have read arsenalism before know that I hold the current set of England players, by and large, with barely concealed contempt. Watching their limitations of expression on the pitch and arrogant lack of regard off of it makes mustering any enthusiasm to follow them at The World Cup an impossibility.
Part of me is glad that Theo is not going, and I don’t see much of a big deal about Capello making the decision; these things happen. The role that he has been given at Arsenal by the manager has virtually tied Theo’s hands and Fabio clearly feels he is looking for byline-reaching cross-hitting wide men.
What I object to is the way that such wilful malice is exhibited toward this articulate young man who just wants to play football.
In terms that may be clearly understood “Bollocks to them I say, bollocks to the lot of them”.
