The Left Own It

Now that Fabio Capello has reacted to the FA trying to dictate management decisions to him by resigning, I'm beginning to think that maybe the critics were right and he never really understood our crazy Inglish ways. Surely every one knows that the tradition is to suck it up and keep collecting the cheques right until the inevitable implosion, then wait 12 months and write a book explaining how everything would have gone great if it wasn't for those meddling kids?

Capello was placed in an untenable situation where he was given a big job to do then hobbled by backseat drivers determined to score an admiring profile in the Guardian, so he bailed out and told the PC clowns the equivalent of 'you broke it, you bought it'.

Why don't more people do this? He was smart enough to realise a bunch of scum weasels wanted to exploit our national team to score PC points then try and offload the inevitable consequences on him as the guy at the sharp end.

Hey, no wonder The Dave has come out against him: that's practically the perfect summation of his MO. Check what happens to welfare reform. Or education. Or health. Or.....

Of course, this is further proof of what I keep saying: no, The Dave is not a political genius. If Harry R wins the Euros then nobody will remember The Dave's role, but if it ditching the manager and the captain four months before a major tournament doesn't work out so well, Dave's new friends on the left may just mention it once or twice...

"Why don't more people do this?"

Because they don't want to end up like Ray Honeyford?
