England NT: Training Report
Gareth? We feel your pain. Image: Getty Images/Daylife
Far be it from us to throw stones at ‘in-play’ fashion faux pas’ (anyone who’s caught a glimpse of us on a staff night out would confirm we aren’t exactly ‘catwalk ready’ as frequently as we might have you believe) but it would be inappropriate of us not to comment on some of the decisions on display in the England training session yesterday.
The world is waiting for our musings, y’know.
While everyone else was focussing on John Terry’s (re) coronation as captain yesterday, we were more interested in the ‘shorter’ shorts/over the knee socks combo he chose to face the world in on the pitch at London Colney. While we’ve reluctantly learned to live with the sock thing, we just can’t get over the shrinking tent container. It’s giving us the sartorial shivers.
And that’s before we’ve started on Wayne Rooney’s ‘homage to golf’ lower half. Even Gareth Barry (top) was bewildered by that one.

Look. We have no beef with you England boys as a team. We could’ve just chosen Joey Hart (above left) to represent, in which case we would have simply allowed our eyes to glaze over and filed the pics in our ‘special’ draw.
It’s just that if you’re in the middle of a media storm and are likely to have your picture taken, at least have the decency to observe the rules of engagement so we can perv on you.
