XI things on Fabio Capello’s to-do list


13th, December 2007

1 Open a very high interest bank account for his £4 million a year salary.
2 Pick a good nickname for himself before the tabloids pick one for him.
3 Impose his expected WAG-ban on England meet-ups.

4 Ring his old friend David Beckham to let him know he is frozen out once again.
5 Pick a new captain to lead the team in the Capello era (preferably one with fewer injuries and less petulance).
6 Watch some Premier League matches.
7 Polish the medals from his eight domestic and one Champions League titles.
8 Take his squad for a leg wax. He is quoted as saying: “When a man crosses his legs and the trouser rides up to show hairy shins, it offends my eyes.”
9 Call a meeting to establish any players whose egos prevent them from being part of a setup with some discipline and being bossed by a tough guy.
10 Offend one of the people who has hired him. Apparently Capello wants to bring in sidekick Franco Baldini in a role which every so slightly tramples all over the toes of Sir Trevor Brooking’s director of football post.
11 Go to Specsavers.
