    Having sat and watched international games with my dad for nigh on 30 years, I can confirm that you complain exactly the same amount about england the whole way through your life.

    Excuse me Gerrard is not the king of anything. I think you'll find the king of any pass is Paul Scholes.
  • Deleted user 11 October 2013 10:35:39
    He may end up back at your place if Stoke don't find a way to score.

    As far as England is concerned I think Scholes is just the king of getting homesick and bottling it before his time.

    Being forced to play on the wing because we had to accommodate Lampard and Gerrard you mean.

    I like to think if Joe Kinnear wrote an autobiography he would go full retard and claim he won the world cup with Sierra Leone

    Who exactly are the target audience for a book like Redknapp's? I can see the appeal of reading an autobiography 'written' by a long standing player but managers are rarely at any club for more than a couple of years.

    The problem is that, after nearly 15 years, 'how do you play them both in the same team?' has tainted both their england careers.

    But, yeah, what you wouldnt give for a FM style regen for frank lampard.
    I think he's one of those players people were talking about a couple of pages back, someone who works incredibly hard, stays behind after training etc and damn it's paid off, especially for someone who may not necessarily be the most naturally gifted footballer.

    When you look at the youngsters coming through, I can't see anyone that really stands out as being the next Beckham or even the next Gerrard/Lampard/Scholes - Wilshere is probably the closest, but his attitude doesn't seem quite right at the moment. I know he's still young though, so hopefully that will change!

    I know Lukaku has got a lot of praise recently, not just for his attitude on the pitch but also for his attitude off it. Everton have some great English youngsters too so hopefully it rubs off!

    I think you'd be surprised tbh, I can see the book doing very. 'Arry's a bit of a character, and in some ways he's actually quite likeable/charasmatic - I think a lot of people will want to hear what he has to say.

    (edit) that's not to say the book is going to actually be any good, in fact quite the opposite based on the snippets so far!

    There are people who are great personalities regardless of how many clubs they did/didn't play for/be involved with. Redknapp isn't one.

    I bet loads of footballers definitely write their own autobiographies.

    Has Joey Barton released one? Is it comprised solely of introspective haikus and CCTV pictures of assaults?

    Im pretty sure you couldnt top her collection. Theres a heady mix of sporting biographies rubbing shoulders with three books about Jordan, some shit by shane richie and the susan boyle one.

    Honestly, if they are a crap celeb, she has their life story.

    Do English players play too much football?

    Every major league in Europe has the same number teams.

    Do they all have 2 cup competitions?

    They all play the same amount of friendlies.

    So what's the difference?
