“You come to me, my youngest son, and ask me to attend the wedding of my youngest son? Get….OUT!!!”

Word has it, or rather, the Independent has it that Fabio Capello is ducking out of his youngest son’s wedding to watch England get mauled to bits by Spain at Wembley on Saturday – a game, it’s perhaps worth pointing out, that is nowt more than a friendly.

Pierfilippo, 36, is tying the knot with his long-term partner Tiziana (Crudeli?) in Milan (It is T-Crud!) on Saturday, which wouldn’t have been a problem as England’s game was originally pencilled in for Friday. However, the Spanish FA had it nudged back a day to give their Barcelona contingent time to recover from their Copa del Rey excursions against L’Hospitalet tonight.

According to the Indy, Pierfilippo has taken the news rather well, saying it’s ‘absolutely not a problem’ that his old man won’t be in attendance as the couple already have two kids together and the wedding is just a ‘formality’.

And they say romance is dead!

    just checked the copa del rey schedule and it seems like barcelona’s game is the only one scheduled this week let alone this month. all the other la liga teams play their 1st copa del rey game december 13. The obvious favoring of barca can not be anymore visible can it to allow them to play a whole month ahead of everyone else.

    Barca will be playing in the Club World Cup which runs Dec 6-16. They also have another champions league tie this month so they had to push their copa del rey schedule up.

    Big deal. My sister was married 4 times, and my Dad decided to skip wedding #3.

    He was right, the marriage only lasted 6 months.
