open letter to Franz Beckenbauer

Dear Franz

I’m an England fan and a blogger who took exception to your recent comments about the standard and quality of English football under Fabio Capello at this World Cup.

To be honest I thought your comments were inappropriate, and I said so in my blog posting (like you care). The reality is that you were absolutely right in your observations. At the national level we play football which is similar to that played on Hackney Marshes.  Today our defence looked like Dad’s Army versus a crack Panzer Division.

Here’s the thing too Franz, our FA is in a complete state of disarray. Because we only appoint people with thin skins and/or with the morals of alsations, we’ve ended up with no Chairman nor CEO. Is there any possibility  you could be interested in heading up our FA as a man of integrity, insight and intelligence? We’ve never tried that option.

Please Franz….

  1. Nice letter. I happen to think that when things don’t go right for Capello, he looks like a deer in headlights. He didn’t look like he knew what to do today, sort of like what he looked like on Madrid’s bench when things were going oh so poorly that season…. until he had to go against his will and put Beckham into the games and it turned around the season for them even though it was against Capello’s judgment.

    He just doesn’t seem to have the ability to shift and think outside of his known parameters when he needs to most.

  3. fpb, sorry if you think this is spamming. you could have deleted my post and not answer to it. of course, feel free to keep in touch with my blog. besides football i also have a post about pasta – but i won’t spam you with that link 😉 in fact, i sort of think most of the posts there are about myself.

  4. Hi bizzle

    i wouldn’t delete your comments – it’s how we all publicise our blogs after all. Any guy who writes about football and pasta is ok by me.
