Shut Up Stevie G

Wednesday, 14 November 2007

So Stevie G has jumped head first into the arguments over whether quotas should be introduced to stem the number of foreign players in the Premiership. Now, this is a very delicate debate with arguments for both sides and also a bit of racial tension thrown in. There are simple ways to look at it. For example, who would Pompey rather have playing for them? Nugent or Kanu? Things obviously aren't that simple but Stevie G's comments are quite simply laughable and a perfect example of why footballer's should keep their noses out of stuff they don't know what they are talking about.

Here are Stevie's words of wisdom

"Something has to happen. "I'm all for there being a rule change to make sure we continue to have one of the best national teams."

Excuse me? Since when did England have one of the best national teams? England haven't won a trophy for over fucking forty years!! England have bottled all major tournaments since 1966 and had never won anything even BEFORE the influx of overseas players in the Premiership.

The main reason that England never win anything is because they can't place the ball in the net from 12 yards when it matters. Does Stevie G really think that foreigners are to blame for the fact England players have balls like cashew nuts?

The Liverpool captain then added

"If something isn't done, there will be more and more foreigners and they will take over and that is worrying.

"I think there's a concern that talent will eventually stop coming through if foreigners do take over our league."

Everybody run for cover everyone, the great foreign invasion is about to swamp the Premiership. It is interesting that these comments have suddenly appeared:

1) After Steve Coppell's Reading got taught a lesson by Arsenal

2) England look like messing up their chances of qualifying

Would Stevie G prefer it if every team had a goalie like Paul Robinson in goal as long as they are English? After all, he is one of the main reasons why England are staring failure in the face.

There are over a 100 reasons why England are not successful at the moment but to point the finger at Johnny Foreigner is just ridiculous.

As if these comments arent' daft enough, Stevie then proclaimed that the Ginger Whinger has his full backing

"There is no point changing managers every five months or every year. You need continuity and I feel we are moving in the right direction."

And exactly in which direction is that? As far away from the European Championships as possible? Stevie, please stick to what you do best and stop talking shite.
