A gaggle of photos of Fabio Capello and the England blighters going through their paces at London Colney ahead of Friday’s Euro 2012 showdown with Montenegro.

Eyes peeled for John Terry’s puzzling sock choice – what on Earth could it mean? Maybe his cold, dead soul just turns everything he touches black? Or, perhaps, I’m reading a little too much into it…

“Music loud and women warm, I’ve been kicked around since I was born…”

“Don’t look now, but I reckon Scotty’s been watching Striptease again”

“Well la-di-da, better make way for Mr Different Socks!”

“Anyone ever told you you look like a Tibetan fox?”, “Anyone ever told YOU your new hair looks like a well-worn doormat?”

“Oi Clemence! You better not be hiding my sodding cones again!”

Bobby Za-derpface

“Has it dawned on any of you gentleman that we are, quite literally, touching our balls?”


“Eyes on the ball, sprint to the by-line, clip flaccid, useless cross into goalkeeper’s hands. Eyes on the ball, sprint to the by-line…”

Scott Parker recognises the pure, luxurious elegance of the cut-off jodhpur. Frank Lampard, however, does not

“Right! No cones, no training. We’ll move on as soon as ‘someone’ stops playing silly buggers”

    It’s a mark of achievement, black socks mean if you’ve slept with a quarter of the team’s wives and girlfriends…

  2. Madjair says:

    Doesn’t he always wear those black socks in training? It’s definitely not the first time I’ve seen it…

  3. Scott says:

    The wallcott caption is spot on

  4. Mr Socks says:

    Why do players wear their socks above their knees?

    It looks as though they’re wearing stockings, add to that the fact Terry’s an idiot it’s not a very good look.
