Forget your OBE’s, MBE’s, VC’s, knighthoods and peers of the realm. The highest honours in national sporting achievements should be named after the man – no higher honour. I guess if he appeared in Terry Butcher’s blood-soaked head cloth we could elevate him to sainthood maybe.
When will we dispense with useless expensive foreign figureheads in the national game. Surely there’s a fashionable club that would value Capello on their timesheets and save England shelling out needlessly for old rope. Notts County maybe.
(PS – I need to see some replays, but how on earth was Jagielka credited with an own goal, even if it was a goal, which I doubt too.)
