Knicker Twister: Frank Yallop
And we thought Steve McClaren was a shite decision maker. He ain’t got nothing on Frank Yallop, the person who is supposed to be in charge of things for the LA Galaxy. We refuse on principle to look up his actual job title – could be head coach, manager, towel boy, we dunno.
What we do know is that David Beckham is being worked like a true show pony and has had a rather hectic schedule flying 10,000 miles to play in the England friendly against Germany and then racing back to play for the Galaxy the next day. Two games in two days.
Interestingly enough, both McClaren and Yallop thought it was a good move to play him for the full hour and a half. Mr. Yallop in particular, kept David’s ass in last night’s game even when he was grimacing in pain and risking injuring his ankle even more. Why? Because David had told him he was ‘fine’.
“It wasn’t the intention to play him at all, but he came in and said that he felt okay,“ Yallop told reporters. “And obviously with our situation in the league we need points.“
Question: isn’t it the manager-person who makes these decisions, not the players? Can you even imagine Beckham trying to tell Alex Ferguson how to manage his team? He’d (literaly) get a football boot in the head.
Frank Yallop? You’re on our shit list, mate.
Side note: angry, testosterone-filled Becks is the sexiest Becks. That is factual information.
