You never kick a ball like that. The posture is all wrong. Get some welly behind it and stop the mincing. That’s what the caption to this photo of Fabio Capello should have said but didn’t. No wonder he needs a new kneecap.
One Mirror Football panellist wants fans to get as much respect as “sponsors, VIPS, marketing and media partners” in 2010. I’m with Brian McNally of the Sunday Mirror on this but you have to wonder whether it will ever happen?
