A kabal of fools speak

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/world_cup_2006/teams/england/5137378.stm

The bbc have decided to mock England fans for their exit by putting up some of the worst punditry of the tournament on their website since Kevin Keegan claimed that David Batty was going to score his penalty in 1998.

Fool #1 – Graham Taylor

" Eriksson is not a better or worse coach than all of us – there is nothing extra special about him " – it sounds like a pretty rational statement, Sven hasn't done anything remarkable as England manager, and it comes amongst an on going hailstorm of criticism. Except Mr. Turnip what happened last time you were England manager?

As a website called 'Geofftech ' observes: "England did not qualify to go to the world cup of '94 after losing to Norway and Holland in the qualifying group."

Thats right – we didn't qualify, the only time in the last 20 years. And you claim you are as good as Sven – who has time to diddle secretaries whilst misusing the talent under his direction. Thats a life skill called multitasking.

Fool #2 – Chris Waddle

"We have got to face reality that we are a team nowhere near the top seven countries in the world. " – what? We went out on penalties in the last 8 – how can we be nowhere near Portugal if it was still 0–0 after 120 minutes.

"Look at Cristiano Ronaldo, Simao, Pauleta. We don't have a player anything like that. Every other country has one, but we don't." Do Trinidad and Tobago have one?

Fool #3 – Anonymous BBC Sports Quoter:

who changed:

"I think there's every chance that Wayne Rooney could go back to the Manchester United training ground and stick one on Ronaldo"

into:

"I think Wayne Rooney should go back to the Manchester United training ground and stick one on Ronaldo"

Fool #4 – Alan Shearer

"How you're feeling at home, multiply that by a million and that's how they feel." How do I multiply what I'm feeling by a million.

Fool #5 – Alan Ball

"Portugal … are the luckiest side in the world." Do I even need to comment?
