Do they want us to the win/have a chance at the world cup finals or are they bascially just more concerned about selling papers!!! Fuck off and leave them to preapre and hopefully have a good chance at the World Cup leave all this shit till afterwards if they care that much which they wont coz by then there will not be as much attention on England players…..Rant over…..ok carry on

    Gramps knows best. Harsh criticism sure, but not unfounded I think.
