I hope my pessimism is slapped in my face, honestly.

I'm not saying that Wes Brown is Beckenbauer, or that Cleverley is Maradona. I'm just saying that Cleverley isn't shite, and to claim otherwise given his record is stupid.

 

I can't believe you'd go on the record and say that Cleverley is basically Maradona.

 

 

Have a word with yourself.

Cleverley isn't shit, and claiming otherwise is just stupid.

 

He might not be performing brilliantly right now, but he's still good enough to be selected to play for Manchester United and has played for England U'21s, England, and GB at the Olympics. You don't achieve those things unless you're a very good player.

 

That doesn't mean that he should automatically be picked to play for England, because there are several other candidates for the position. But it does mean that he's clearly got something to offer, and if Hodgson feels it's worth picking him, I'm happy to support his judgement.

 

I think he's shite.

 

Wes Brown was picked for United for years, and he's hardly Beckenbauer. And that was under a better manager.

 

I'll happily eat my words, but I'm not seeing it at all.

Presumably, if you're moaning about a mid-table English side giving it a go by spending money they've earned, you need criticise all of football.

 

Isn't a skint winner about. 

 

Juve.

 

Bayern.

 

...

 

 

Even in the 1960s, Spurs spent the most money.

 

In the late 80s, John Barnes was the top paid player on the planet.

 

It's all nothing new.

 

Odd romanticised ideas knocking about.
