Solving the problem that is the England National Team


England's 2-1 humiliation at the hands of Iceland - a country with a population the size of Leicester - has gone down as one of the worst results in the country's history. 
It has led to another root and branch review at the Football Association, while England boss Roy Hodgson quit in the immediate aftermath of the defeat.


The Problem

  • No motivation
  • No team spirit
  • No leadership
  • No discipline
  • No respect for shirt they wear
  • No pride
  • Only motivated by money
  • No leaders in the team
Premiership players in my mind are :-
  • Tainted by excess Money
  • Lazy :relying on big signing foreign players to do the real work
  • Arrogant
'Players now are rewarded before they even do anything - they have the nice cars, nice watches. They are robots, just robots. They're told what to do and there's no problem solving on the pitch.' 

The Solution


The England team makeup must be of the following makeup:-

  • 20% or less :players from the Premiership
  • 70% players from the Championship
  • 10%  from League One

The England Manager

  • Get a manager with balls -

My views
There is perceived issues with inward migration of European workers.
We have issues with the amount of money we pour into Europe following 2008 when Austerity measures were hitting everyone and services hard.
Our Politicians have lost touch with the people of the country. 

June 24th : The day the nation rose up against an arrogant out of touch political leadership whilest rejecting Brussels Bureaucrats  attempts to govern them from afar.

What made this victory possible?

·     It began in 2008 with the global crash perceived to be caused by the rich and privileged.
·     Following austerity measures perceived to hit hard the poor and weak. Those who  feel they had no hand in causing the financial crash. This while our money seemed to be pouring into Europe for little or no gain.

·     The patronizing 'We are all in it together' tone by our present government when dealing out auterity measures that seem to only hit the poor and underprivileged. Really? Are we? All the time European workers/migrants seemingly bleeding the system dry.

·     The London has lost touch with the rest of country. This mostly divide fuelled  by property prices and the city of London.

·   The government had not realized the affect austerity would cause people to vote for change no matter what the fear for the future.

Was this essentially
·         a vote against the present leadership team?
·         a vote against the personalities of the present leadership team?.
·         A protest vote against thee establishment

Perhaps this is why our Prime minister did the honorable thing so soon.

I am confused the Chancellor of Exchequer has not yet followed done the same. After all it was his threat of calling an emergency budget which just might have been a threat/ step too far for some un-deciders.

Where do we go from here?

The LEAVE leadership need to

·     Realize that austerity was a factor in their victory and act accordingly

·     Honor there pledge to stable net immigration.

·     Gain the trust of the people. Characters and personalities go a long way Mr Boris Johnson but only so far.

·     Be seen to unite the country and again listen to the other 48% of its people.

·     Address the rich/ poor divide. Is it a surprise that the five poorest boroughs in London voted LEAVE.

·     Seriously think about how to unify the country taking into account 48% voted remain. Northern Ireland, Scotland, Republic of Ireland. Can Scotland remain in Europe yet still remain a part of Great Britain?

·      Set out a roadmap very soon including how we go about completing Article 50.

·     Analyze the stats and move forward learning from our mistakes

Final Thoughts

Do not call a referendum on something so important without first finding out how disillusioned the people you govern are with your leadership and anyone who is associated with them.

The Future

'We will build a better Britain not just for the privileged few': Prime Minister Theresa May issues statement of intent

My article called it, and I am glad Theresa May has recognized and called it too. A realization that the Government present had lost touch with the non privileged. 

In order to signify this intent her leadership will look a lot different to the ex Eton  Boys College Chummy club of Mr Cameron

A Minister for BREXIT recognizes the will of the People. None of this talk about ignoring the democratic decision of the people of the so called less privileged


I would love to get your views. What say you?

Thoughts go out to families and friends of the victims of this mornings attacks on Brussels. In the days to come we will no doubt seek answers as to why and how these events have come to pass.

International Response coming through

Belgium’s Interior Minister Jan Jambon has announced three days of national mourning, writes Oliver Milne.

Jambon is expected to join Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel at Zaventem airport in the next few hours, where they will tour the scene of this morning’s atrocities.

He spoke to Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel before the speech and offered the condolences of the American people, the White House said. Obama offered U.S. assistance in investigating the attacks.
