It’s not often I write about football on here – even though it consumes a fair part of my life 😉 (usually involving Liverpool FC..)Anyhow, without repeating previous blog entries on the subject about the quality of the press these days, I feel I have to rant and rave about the New of the World. I cannot believe that in a World Cup year they feel it appropriate to undermine the England team in any way. For those of you not in England, the News of the World published an article which involved hoodwinking the England football manager into speculating what would happen after the World Cup. Unfortunately there were comments about existing England players and that the England manager would leave after the World Cup.
Now the players have all come out and backed the manager, but it cannot help matters. Why can’t the press just get behind the team for once?
What is worse is that despite outrage by people calling in to Sky Sports against the paper, the few newspapers I saw this morning all lambasted the England manager.
OK. I’ll stop now.
