Tell me, given he has no intention of leading us into the World Cup, what exactly is the point in keeping Capello in charge through to the European Championship finals? Where is his motivation to build a team to win a World Cup exactly? He isn't English so he doesn't give a damn about the nation and, given he will not be around, why will he put the emphasis on youth?
I backed the selection of Davies because I like the guy. He is passionate. He gets stuck in. he fights for the shirt. And he is not without ability. But he is 33!
Tell me, as well as he played tonight, where is the point in "re-appointing" Ferdinand as captain? He may be around for Capello's big farewell but what chance is there of him leading us to the next World Cup? Virtually zero I would say.
But never mind the dubious personel, what is most worrying is Capello's utter lack of a plan B. Remember all that talk of 4-5-1 and 4-3-3 at the last World Cup? Remember the campaign to get Gerrard playing higher up the pitch? Capello doesn't! Gerrard sat as deep as Barry through-out the first half and only really started to get forward in the last 15 minutes.
When it clearly was not working, Capello had the chance to change things. But what did he do? Davies for Crouch - like for like; and Wright-Phillips for Young. The only difference was that we were ten inches shorter as a team after the substitutions!
Tell me, what is the point of having a manager if that is the best he can come up with? Any thought of taking off Crouch for a midfielder and moving Gerrard forward? Nope.
Let's jettison Capello now. Make Pearce the "coach" and ask 'Arry to manage the team on a part time basis. We couldn't do any worse!
