Micah Richards Disappointed At Three Lions Snub, Tweets His Feelings

Surely Manchester City’s Micah Richards deserved his place in the latest England squad? The defender has been in superb form for the Citizens, already chalking up five assists in City’s almost flawless league campaign so far.

However, Fabio Capello has decided that, for now anyway, Glen Johnson, Kyle Walker and Chris Smalling will suffice. Richards is understandably rather unhappy at his snub, and has Tweeted so.

“Well well well!!!! Disappointed is an understatement!!”, he Tweeted after hearing the bad news. This was followed by “Oh well better look next time! Roll the sleeves up and work harder! #cantstopwontstopdontstop”.

On current form, Richards is more than worthy of a place in the England squad, if not a starting berth against Spain and Sweden, isn’t he?

    Capello that idiot Italian is a Racist Twat! Fuck you Capello!

  2. #threlins says:

    Capello is not racist (seeing as how he included 3 black players over Richards), but he is an idiot. Glen Johnson was rubbish at the world cup.

  3. Ryan says:

    @sai.. seriously? johnson and smalling are both black

  4. Anonymous says:

    Glen Johnson ,Ashley Cole ,Joleon Lescott ,Jack Rodwell ,Theo Walcott ; Darren Bent , Daniel Sturridge , Gabriel Agbonlahor , Bobby Zamora , Danny Welbeck

    You, sai, are the twat

  5. Dr. Roberts says:

    Considering all the players in front of him bar Walker are black, I’m not entirely sure why you’re under the impression that Capello is racist. But he is a twat.

    Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Ashley Cole (Chelsea),Joleon Lescott (Man City), Kyle Walker (Tottenham), Jack Rodwell (Everton), Theo Walcott (Arsenal); Darren Bent (Aston Villa), Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea), Gabriel Agbonlahor (Aston Villa), Bobby Zamora (Fulham), Danny Welbeck (Man Utd).

    You, sai, are the TWAT

  7. Dr. Roberts says:

    On a sidenote, it’ll be interesting to see Sturridge in action for England as long as he plays long enough to be able to make an Impression.

  8. Justin says:

    Sai, your response is racist in itself. Idiot.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Yeah how is that racist?

  10. Leo says:

    @tendonnot: And how many of those players actually went to South Africa 2010? (lol@ Walcott) Not saying Capello is racist but besides Ashley Cole and Glen Johnson how many of those guys does he really count on?….and @sai: “that idiot Italian is racist” might be one of the funniest contradictions I’ve read on this site in a while…

  11. Mr. Sparkle says:

    I’m not sure why he wants to play for England?

  12. dc says:

    Richards’s exclusion is bewildering and has been for a while.

    In some instances, he plays players who play for big clubs only because they play for big clubs.

    in other instances, he plays young players, regardless of who they play for just for experience and looking towards the “future.”

    in richard’s case, he’s young, he starts every game for the league leaders and he’s practically been racking up more assists and clean sheets than glen johnson, chris smalling and kyle walker put together(hyperbole but still…).

    There’s no way Capello is that oblivious and this has been going on for a while, so I’m convinced he must have some unknown grudge against him. Hop to it, tabloids… “Micah Accidentally Sexts the England Manager” “Silly Richards in Capello Drycleaning Row.”

  13. sai says:

    i am a white man.

  14. sai says:

    tendon not, you are a TWAT as well, ha ha

  15. sai says:

    Micah Richards is black GOD! and will damn u all who criticised me! see ya!

  16. moi says:

    smailling? johnson? capello is crazy.. richards is far better..

  17. Robin says:


  18. Col says:

    These comments really need to start being moderated…

  19. CFC_Jay says:

    seriously, Glen Johnson really hasnt done that much this season and Micah Richards has been a key figure in keeping Man City at the top……..not a logical choice in my eyes Johnson over Richards.

  20. Archbishop Betty Snagcock says:

    seriously guys can you not recognize a troll which sai obviously is

    and i have to rate smalling better defensively better than richards and walker better in attack but overall at the moment he has to be England’s best right back

  21. Vans says:

    Clear mistake by capello and @sai. However i do find it slightly strange that people refer to bobby zamora as black. I know i will proably get slaughtered for that,i dont know if he has a black family history but i assume so based on the comments, but seriously he looks like a white guy to me

  22. keni says:

    seriously i really support Sai’s statement. Capello really a racist man in the world! i hope richards will kick capello’s butt and testis and penis. let pello feel the pain! ha ha ha

  23. __wowza says:

    at least we can all agree that he took the right approach with his comment, ‘disappointed i didnt make the team, i’ll work harder to prove to them that they need me’. you cant speak ill of an ethic like that.

  24. Papi says:

    Glen Johnson LOL

  25. Papi says:

    Might as well have recalled Emile Heskey as well.

  26. MessiBalls says:

    Looks like reverse racism in England now

    Sound like reverse racism in England now

    Thank God I don’t live there but I think the whole world is getting this way

  27. Terry Sheddingham says:

    This IS the manager who preferred Heskey to Bent and Carrick to Parker for the World Cup squad. No one’s really surprised now, are they?

  28. Del says:

    Micah definitely deserved a place in the squad.

    I’m still amazed Capello was offered to stay in the job after what happened at the World Cup.

    Heck! For all his ‘experience’ a monkey could manage this team better!
