I don't think the Diddy Men play footie down the Jam Butty Mines in Knotty Ash. At least they didn't when I ran the Greyhound pub just across the road from where Doddy lives.
I think Capello was right to take the stance he has. I think it would have been correct for the FA to remove the armband from John Terry only after he had been found guilty. There is too much of this Guilty until proven innocent these days. I am not a fan of John Terry but I think it is a shabby way to treat him.
re Terry, that's no different to any professional policeman, health or education worker being suspended from duty pending investigation of unacceptable behaviour, and that therefore the norm in this country, he's lucky to still be considered to play at all.
re Dodd, c'mon, it was a very tongue in cheek title paralleling two similarly charged and trialled persons, one of whom the FA (presumably) now sees as fully fit to be England manager.
The incident smacks of a stitchup with the outcome of Capello's talks hinging on the right trial verdict arriving in time. But I don't hear any tears for Capello...
As Quickbeam has pointed out many people when facing allegations are suspended from there normal employment till said allegations are investigated and proved or disproved. If the FA had had the gumption to suspend Terry right away then much of what has happened since would have been avoided. Was it a stitch up to give arry the job.....not even I am cynical enought to think that.
