Upson On The Brink - Because of Tottenham and Liverpool's CHEATING
For so long, Upson seemed a certainty for the plane. It didn't matter how badly he performed in Claret and Blue or how often he slipped up in an England shirt, he was still Fabio's preferrred replacement for both Ferdinand and Terry. But that was when the only competition for the position was Lescott. Now, with the cheating Scouse traitor Carragher returning to the fold, and King rolling up his death bed and walking, Upson is seriously at risk of missing out on his World Cup dream.
Ordinarily, this would have West Ham fans up in arms! It is a bloody disgrace when you think about it. Neither Carragher nor King played any part in the qualification campaign. No extended season for them last summer. No long flights to the Ukraine or Belaruse in mid season. No divided loyalties between club and country. Isn't it odd that King was ruled out by 'Arry when Tottenham were engaged in the blood and thunder of a Premiership season yet, via a Christ like miracle, King is suddenly fine to play three games in a week now Tottenham's season is over? That stinks.
But not half as much as the inclusion of that cheating Scouse traitor Carragher. Remember, this is the guy who, when there was an injury crisis in the centre back positions, REFUSED to answer England's call for help in that all or nothing qualification game against Croatia. I don't care what he thought of McClaren, his COUNTRY needed him and the Scouse shit turned his back on his nation and the fans who enable him to earn such a fantastic salary. "I'm not picked as first choice so I won't play," he whined like a spoilt ten year old. And as a result, we crashed out of the Euros. Upson, meanwhile, has turned up come rain or shine, accepting his role as understudy, proud to play for his country. Put yourself in Upson's boots. How would you feel if you were left out in favour of either King or Upson?
So why aren't Hammers fans up in arms? Well because we have had the feeling all season that Upson has been looking after himself when playing for West Ham, pacing himself ready for the World Cup. We know that had he felt a niggle, he would have walked off the pitch, no matter how important the game to West Ham. We saw the way Tomkins was asked to mark Doyle, Rooney and Davies whilst Upson marked...well nobody. We also know that he wants out, that his heart isn't in the club because he THINKS he is too good for us. So, in a way, it would be good to see him dropped, so he can feel how we felt all last season, that sense of crushing disappointment, that feeling of being kicked in the bollocks.
There are no rights here, just wrongs. Carragher should not be on the plane and nor should King. Look at the fuss because Terry screwed Bridge's girlfriend, Carragher and King have screwed every England fan for three seasons or more. But take Upson? After his performances for West Ham last season? No way. If you don't make it Matty, don't expect any sympathy from down Green Street way!
