I was under the blissfully naive impression that BBC's football coverage couldn't get any worse, but it appears that they've chosen to reward this cretin's dismal failure to qualify by making him the cornerstone of Euro 2008 coverage. Cue lots of mutual backslapping, matey jokes about Croatia and *shock horror* Steve's revelation that he believe the Russians will be the tournament's darkhorses. So, is that the Russian's who resolutely fail to ever do anything of note at a major tournament but who beat your pathetic excuse for an England team in qualifying? Seriously, the man is fucking risible and his knowledge of players outside the UK appears non-existent. It's all fucking platitudes or lazy uninformed cliches; yes, we know Italy "know how to win" you grinning cretin, that's why they're at the fucking tournament. Germany are apparently "disciplined and organized" when anyone with a modicum of knowledge would realise that defensively they're as weak as they've been in years. Spain will apparently be relying on Torres and Fabregas, despite the fact that Aragones' preferred system excludes both. And to top it all off, they're fucking interviewing him about the porspective Blackburn job. FUCK!
