If the FA want to know why so many people are turned off by the England Football team here is one reason.
The headline on the BBC "Pickford the Hero in England shootout win".
Now this week we have been celebrating Heroes from 75 years ago many of whom died in defence of this Country I don't think third place playoff Penalty shoot out win is on the same level of heroism as men being mowed down by enemy Machine Guns. Its a Carabo Cup version from UEFA and third place even first place isn't really much of an achievement. The FA and England need to show a bit of class and dignity exactly the two qualities I have seen the old boys demonstrate many times this week.
