£15 Million Just To Bid For The 2018 World Cup

That’s right, its going to cost the FA £15 million to put together a proposal for the World Cup 2018 to be hosted in England. That’s a lot of money that could be spent on much needed things like, grass roots football, better local football pitches, improved academies, or more importantly – a full investigation into why Steve McClaren ever landed the England job.

WORLD CUP BID TO COST MILLIONS

McClaren To Work For The BBC At Euro 2008

Talking of our friend Steve McClaren, he’s been appointed by the BBC to offer expert analysis at the Euro’s. What is it with this guy? First of all he earned a salary as England manager of £2.5 million a year (forget about bonuses, endorsements etc.), with a compensation package of £2.5 million when he was finally evicted by the FA. Now he’s taking a salary from our TV Licence fee’s. Won’t that make you feel good when the next TV Licence bill arrives on your doorstep?

Umbro Hang Shirts Out To Dry

To celebrate St George’s Day, Umbro lined Carnaby Street with the England away shirts. Hundreds of the shirts were hung up like bunting up and down the street. Well after Steve McClaren failed to get us to the Euro’s, they had to use them for something….

Gabriel Heinze’s Black Boots

It was a mystery which had football fans scratching their heads, just like when the FA appointed Steve McClaren, so why did Heinze black out his football boots? Well the Footy Boots head journo donned his flat cap and off he went to bring the football public back the answer….

Heinze: “I had a contract, it ended and so I painted the football boots black. Why am I going to give publicity to a company with which I no longer have a contract?”

Mystery over, Puma didn’t want to give him any more money.

Man City Talk to Ronnie

This story just won’t go away. Just why do the Man City PR team keep rolling this one out? Ronaldinho is a marketing machine, still. He is wanted in Milan. He’s still in his prime years at 28 and whilst City’s ‘Thai Guy’ will be willing to throw a few ‘Baht’ at him, it’s not going to happen. There’s more chance of Man Utd sacking Fergie, only to replace him with Steve McClaren than there is Ronnie going to City.

WAGs (wives and girlfriends)

Abbey Clancy (Peter Crouch’s WAG) and Crouchie had a bit of a lovers tiff earlier this week, resulting in Abbey giving Crouchy a slap. Crouchie and WAG were partying at the Valmont club in London, when WAG got in to a cat fight with a girl that had made a move on Crouch.

Fair play Crouchie, but shouldn’t you have been preparing for the Champions League tie?
