Ashley Cole Can’t Take The Shearer Truth
I still can’t get my ahead around how Cole is still in the England squad after calling his employers (The FA), “a bunch of Tw*ts”, after they had the nerve to find his best mate, John Terry, guilty over the Anton Ferdinand incident.
On Saturday night, Alan Shearer then was asked his opinion and quite reasonably called on the FA to kick Cole out of England’s squad from the San Marino match on Friday. If that was the depth of his punishment he should be counting his lucky stars.
Shearer, “I think the FA can put a big statement out here by actually not fining him but actually banning him on Friday against San Marino. Because we’ve seen players fined £50,000, £60,000, £70,000, that’s not a deterrent to them. Stopping them playing will be”.
Of course Cole can’t let this valid criticism go by and retweets, “Alan Shearer says @TheRealAC3 needs to be banned for comments. I want his opinion on bans for kicking Neil Lennon in the head. #glasshouses”.
It just shows how thick AND arrogant (a very dangerous combination) Cashley is…and this was AFTER releasing an ‘apology’ through ‘his solicitor’, which tells you everything.
When Cole ‘retweeted’ that message it is a pointed reference to when Shearer received no punishment after a clash with Neil Lennon when Newcastle played Leicester.
What has that got to do with Cole’s case? Shearer’s was an incident that happened on the pitch, Ashley Cole has slagged off his employers in the most public way and used the most offensive language. All in the course of defending his mate’s racist behaviour.
The only thing I disagree with Shearer about is the one match ban.
I would kick Ashley Cole out of the England squad for good, the same as with John Terry if he hadn’t jumped first.
I would be in favour of having a massive clearout to get rid of the poison at the core of English football, which has meant in recent years there hasn’t been a decent person to make captain from the group of better players.
Face the fact, England are not going to win anything with the current group of players so why not take a stand now and reap the long-term benefits?
