Ok, make sense of this if you can. England would only have narrowly defeated the USA last summer but for the stunning contribution of Rob Green, creating hardly any chances after the early Gerrard strike, yet Mexico trounced them 4-2 last night in the Gold Cup final, with a certain Pablo Barrera scoring twice!
I have been saying for some time that we got the wrong guy, sent a doppelganger found working in Taco Bell. Sullivan should now insist on finger prints, blood tests and biometric screening when the little Mexican claiming to be Barerra rocks up for training for the new season.
If, of course, Barerra ever returns. He has been in the shop window over the past couple of weeks and a number of Spanish clubs are bound to have been impressed. Would anybody be surprised if Barrera now secured a move and, over the next couple of seasons, developed into a true world beater? El Sod's Law may be about to strike again!
