Capello's Credibility Running On Empty - He's In The Brown Stuff Up To His Nose!
Not content with poking Rob Green in the eye, Capello has now slapped every other English qualified keeper in the face by declining to call up a replacement for Robinson after the Blackburn keeper told him where to stick his invitation to join up with the England team.
So have Kirkland and Carson also declined Capello's invitation to reignite their international careers, or is Fabio effectively telling them that having nobody between the sticks is preferable to either of them? What is he saying to Rob Green meanwhile? Not in a million years will you ever play for England again, apparently.
Remember, nobody forced Capello to pick Green for that game against the USA. I was certainly opposed to his selection and his gaffe came as no surprise to me. So, in a sense, it wasn't Green's error, it was Fabio's mistake for picking him. On the basis that Green is now persona non gratis, shouldn't Fabio be consistent and resign himself therefore?
Now Wes Brown has announced his retirement from international football too! Once again, you have to wonder why on earth Capello didn't talk to his players before he announced the squad. How bloody foolish does he look?
Still, we can make do without a right back too presumably!
