I could have chucked pizza at the telly when Capello came on
Rarely here in Blog on the Tyne does the subject drift from Newcastle United but after the national disgrace that was England's World Cup exit against Germany I think desperate times call for desperate measures.
For a start, this World Cup has been poor and England have been garbage all the way through, tactically inept and totally devoid of ideas.
Capello was struggling before we even went out there in trying to persuade Paul Scholes to come out of retirement, and succeeding in doing likewise with Jamie Carragher because he knew the current squad is way short.
People have said that some of the England players don't care, well I'd say probably some of them do care but they've been playing as indviduals and as we all know, you won't win anything with 11 people doing what they want rather than working as a team.
I wasn't expecting England to do that well in this tournament and even though people around me in the pub were getting patriotic pre-match, it was soon clear that the same energies weren't flowing in the players.
England started like a team of strangers, couldn't string two passes together and re-invented their own version of shabby defending, as Alan Shearer said, we could have been four or five down for crying out loud.
They had to offer something and they got it through Matthew Upson just before the goal that wasn't but even then it was disgrace they had to be 2-0 down to even start playing.
In the end Germany deserved to win, not only win, but beat us by even more.
Their younger squad showed all the passion and hunger that was so often missing.
Who do you blame?
I blame the players for not showing any passion and the manager Fabio Capello because, he's basically not the right fit for England.
In my humble opinion, we need an English manager who understands what it means to pull on the shirt and play the way we dream about.
Go back to Euro 96 and Terry Venables seemed to capture it perfectly.
I'm not saying Venables should come back but at the end of the day I'm sure had he been in charge at this World Cup, we'd have at least shown a bit of passion and got in the faces of the opposition a bit more.
The whole thing was infuriating to watch and I nearly hurled a pizza at Capello's face on the TV when I got back and ended up watching the highlights to double check if it had actually really happened.
Yes, it did happen and whether England will bring in a few of the younger players for the next tournament remains to be seen.
Andy Carroll, Jack Wilshere, Tom Cleverly, Henri Lansbury, Jack Rodwell - well they couldn't do much worse than some of the senior players on show against Germany.
Oh well, in a few days, we'll all calm down again and be dreaming about winning Euro 2012!
And by the time we start seeing the pictures of the Toon players filing back into training next Monday, the focus will have switched again to our beloved Newcastle United.
