This is really starting to bug me now!

Ever since Wayne Rooney spouted that obscenity towards the referee in our last warm-up game before the competition proper begins, the media have been on his case.

From being a relative saint they`re now portraying our Wayne as a potential sinner.

It`s not if he receives a red card, according to some, but when.

Every man and his dog are sticking their oar in warning Wayne of the consequences of any abusive language. We`ve even had articles, in the media, whereby referees are being given instruction on how to recognize English swear words!

Thankfully, Wayne`s colleague in the England camp hold no fears about his temperament and in his press conference yesterday, our new captain Steven Gerrard emphasised this whilst also explaining that it was essential everyone adhered to the rules, commenting,

“Wayne is experienced enough now to deal with it. He understands we need him on the pitch.”

“He is very important for us. But every player has been warned how important it is to channel their frustrations in the right way, not to get involved with referees or making silly challenges.”

“It`s important to keep everyone on the pitch.”


We`d agree totally, it`s going to be hard enough playing at altitude to do well with eleven on the pitch, how we`d do with ten is another matter!
