Football is the English National Game.
The manager of the National Team - an Italian - resigned.
Fans, players and the media wanted an Englishman called Redknapp as the new manager. His character could be described as salt of the earth and he had
achieved much with several English clubs both in English and European projects with low budgets to buy players.
Here are twitter comments from top English players
"Striker Wayne Rooney had said on Twitter following Capello's departure: "Got to be English to replace him. Harry Redknapp for me." Defender Rio
Ferdinand tweeted: "Harry Redknapp would be my choice by a distance."
The ruling body of the sport wanted him to move hundreds of miles away into the desolate middle of England as the ruling body thought that an academy
in this place would be the answer to the English National Team failing to win any honour since 1966.
Redknapp who is full of common sense said no - it is reported today that his wife may have been instrumental in his decision and is concerned as he
had coronary artery surgery in the last few months and would have to commute from his home in southern England.
And so the ruling body of the sport have contrived to destroy the chances of the English fans and footballers having their choice and end up
appointing a guy called Hodgson who has had some success abroad but failed miserably with Liverpool a top English club.
Interestingly Hodgson works in the middle of England where the academy will operate. Coincidence huh!
Once again we are witnessing the destruction of English culture by a mediocracy of managers who do not represent the essence of English football i.e.
most clubs were founded by a group of working men kicking a ball around a park.
And who is the architect of this appointment and miserable affair - step forward David Bernstein an accountant who has never played professional
Bernstein is the accountant who oversaw the abusive FCUK French Connection adverts and hopefully if he fcuks up this appointment his head will roll
into the same bucket as his foreskin did at his barmy itz vah on the day when he started supporting Mercenary City - a local English football team
without any locals after Bernstein "saved the club" LOL.
We are all watching you David even though you will try to disseminate responsibilty when England under Hodgson fail in the near future at the European
