Capello takes no nonsense

English Football Association chairman Lord Triesman has spoken out on the new-look England and the way it has made the squad into a team of winners. Under Eriksson and McClaren, a travelling circus of WAGs and agents had begun to become the norm for the England team on the road. Under Capello, this has been brought to an abrupt end.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating as they say, and the results justify the measures that Capello has taken to turn these players into serious atheletes rather than celebrity sports personalities. The players must take on board their managers' philosophy if this team wants to first of all reach the World Cup, let alone to progress to the latter stages. We have messed up on the European Championships, and whilst the players' attitude may not be the ONLY reason, the question remains: How can such a collection of undisputably fine sportsmen perform so poorly as they have done under the previous manager on the world stage?

It would be nice to think that the previous attitudes have been blown away by the wind of change and professionalism with prevail for the future.
