‘They’re All Just Headphones!’ – Chris Waddle Sums Up England’s Predicament In Fabulous, Barely Composed Post-Iceland Rant (Audio)

BBC Radio 5 Live pundit Chris Waddle embarked on a lively rant following last night’s dismal showing against Iceland, once again hitting the nail on the head vis-a-vis England’s perpetual predicament.

Just as he did in the aftermath of the 2014 World Cup, Waddle went in hard on England’s players (“they’re all just headphones” being a brilliantly surreal, barely composed highlight!) for failing to match their Icelandic counterparts in almost every respect.

He’s right… again. It boils down to little more than cyclical arrogance on England and the FA’s part.

The sooner we accept our mediocrity, the sooner we can start rebuilding properly.
