A Game To Miss Greenie!
If I was Robert Green, I'd be keeping my fingers crossed that Capello starts with somebody else between the sticks against Brazil. Hopefully Terry will be fit but if not, I can't see a defence reading Shite Brown, Kryten Lescott, Pick Yourself Upson and Hump Back Bridge offering the keeper much protection.
The worry, for those of us who hold out genuine hopes of an England triumph in the World Cup, is the paucity of defensive cover that this illustrates. After his performance against the mighty Burnley, Hansen said he felt sorry for Wayneker Bridge and that same magnificent Burnley exposed Kryten Lescott as a red faced dwarf of a Premiership defender. Burnley, remember, hadn't picked up a single away point all season yet took a two goal lead and, when out on their collective feet, were still invited to score a third by a hapless and hopeless Bridge. As well as the Burnley boys battled, I don't think even their most die hard fans would claim that they have a Kaka in their ranks!
Meanwhile, on the right side of the defence, Capello has no alternative other than Wes Brown. What the Hell is going on? I know Gary Neville has been out for a year and Phil Neville is currently unavailable, but surely there must be a full back or two worthy of selection ahead of Bridge or Brown? The decision to call up Luke Young shows that the cupboard really is empty. Capello should change his name to Old Mother Hubbard! He's got Kryten in the squad; and from what I've seen this season, Fabio might as well have gone with the rest of the Red Dwarf boys for his back four! Let's face it, since Collins has gone, Upson has been a hologram of his former self!
So if I was Green, I might wake up this morning to a twinge in my back. "I'll play boss if you really need me but..."
