I'd like to see anyone do better with that team and with the pressure from the press and the media to play the team they want to see picked. What has he done wrong exactly? England are not in Germany's league and so it was no real failure to see them humbled by them at the world cup and now he has topped the Euro qualifying group. It's not that Cappello is doing a bad job, it's that people are for some reason convinced that England are good enough with the players they have to win major tournaments. They're not and they haven't been for a long ass time. I'm looking forward to when they get in a next legendary man in charge and after another Round 2 / QF exit everyone will be after his head saying what a terrible job he's done. Rinse, cycle, repeat. It's hillarious.
A world class manager who hasn't taken the time to learn the language, naively played an archaic 4-4-2 formation at the world cup, and until a year ago thought Heskey was good enough for a starting place.
Yup, I can't wait for him to go.
He also hung our best player of the last 10 years (Owen) out to dry, and wouldn't even tell our most passionate/patriotic player, Beckham, to his face that his England career was over.
He did a crap job at the World Cup, and you're stubborn and blind if you think otherwise.
Germany were better than us, and are a lot better than us now, but they tore us apart on the break because Capello refused to play 3 in the centre of midfield so he could play Defoe up front. It's almost comical. We shouldn't have even been playing Germany, but we couldn't even win a group with 3 extremely mediocre teams in it. We lost to the USA because of a Green howler (when the whole country was telling Capello to play Joe Hart), and then were outplayed by the other team in our group... Algeria? I can't even remember.
Good riddance, should've been sacked already. Gets 4x the wage Del Bosque does, but still couldn't motivate/inspire players to perform for England who have proven their quality at club level. Were they good enough to win the World Cup? No, but our performances in the group stage and complete annihilation by Germany were embarrassing.
