Quick, England need a World Cup scapegoat! But who?

This man perhaps?


And lo, England had a shocker against the Germans, and that’s it for another World Cup. Will the likes of JT, Lampo, Steven G, Jamesie and the Cole Sisters ever get to play on such a big stage again? Sod that, who should we blame for this one?

There are a few candidates. Robert Green for ensuring that England didn’t win the group, JT for first shattering morale by having it off with Bridgy’s baby mama, then for spitting further fuel on the bonfire by suggesting that all was not well behind the scenes.

Then you’ve got Rooney for playing like a man who was on 60-a-day, Sepp Blatter for refusing to use simple technology when England just needed a goal line replay, and Capello – the imbecile who thought it wise to bring on Heskey when all that was needed was a few quick goals.

Who do YOU think is to blame for this? Let us know with a vote and a comment.

    The U.S. won the group because they scored more goals than England. Both teams had the same number of points and the same goal differential. If England had scored one more goal in their game against Slovenia, then they would have had the superior goal differential.

    It’s time to let Robert Green’s one mistake go. It’s not as if Calamity James played well against Germany. At least one, if not two, of Germany’s goals could have been stopped by a better keeper.
