England boss gets cold shoulder

Things have got a bit worse for England manager Fabio Capello since we gave our thoughts on his new-look squad. Wes Brown has now joined Paul Robinson in retiring from international football after being picked by the Italian.

And during the post-Community Shield formalities the England boss was snubbed by Ashley Cole. The Chelsea left-back inadvertently ignored an outstretched hand from his international manager.

Capello then feigned surprise at seeing Michael Carrick in a Manchester United shirt after being told he would be injured for two weeks prior to announcing his squad.

He was eager to pin Carrick down to a telephone conversation to get the full details of the miraculous recovery.

No, Little Mickey Owen, he doesn’t want to talk to you.

After playing his injured midfielder for 79 minutes, Sir Alex Ferguson could only apologise: “I can only apologise. I was certain he was out for two weeks then he came and said he was fit.”

    Time for Capello to ring the changes me thinks….shows the arrogance of Cashley or was he upset at the ease Valencia ran him ragged

    Capello is a loser. Don’t know why any England player would want to associate themselves with the England national team. We are a joke of a football nation.
