So judging from the recent news Euro 2012 is becoming (more of) a fiasco for the England national team, with Woy making nonsensical picks, players like Carrick and Richards (with some justification) taking their ball and going home, everyone conveniently getting injured and now some hulabaloo with regards to Rio throwing a hissy fit after being passed over because Woy selected Kelly to replace Cahill, and Kelly isn’t even a CB! I have zero sympathy for Woy because he just had to pick EBJT, and everything around that asswipe has to be a man-management nightmare.
Of course all this is small news compared to Henderson, Downing, Gerrard, Carroll, G.Johnson and now Kelly being swept into the final squad. This led to two competing hilarious theories currently being circulated.
- The England manager is a complete wuss that lost his pair and is placating the rabid RAWK crowd by picking as many (non)-performing Pool players as possible
- He’s actually a vindictive genius and is planning to both tire and demoralize the Pool squad after an exhausting, humiliating and fruitless Euro campaign.
In the first theory he’s wasting his time since there’s very little overlap between a Little Englander national team fan and a rabid YNWA cultist. It’s doubly pointless especially because he had the temerity to replace the Fat Spanish Waiter, which is practically almost a death sentence on the Anfield terraces. As for the second theory, that would mean he doesn’t mind them hating him even MORE at the expense of scuppering his ricebowl. Either way, it’s a comedy and we should enjoy it while we can, because the media have their knives ready for poor befuddled Woy.
