Turncoat players; fringe squad members ‘leaking’ information; nameless ECB officials also leaking information and accusing players of having oversized egos; not to mention a media solely interested in column inches, badgering anyone and everyone for more information.
Fucking stop it. Belt up.
Who cares who says and thinks what about whom? Whether people like or dislike other people is irrelevant. They can still work together. Even if they disagree about certain issues, they can surely all agree on one; what should be the unifying sentiment for everyone involved – that they want what’s best for England.
Tell you what’s most definitely not best for England: inciting needless conflict and fracturing the side through unceasing, childish whispering.
If one more unnamed ECB official or player ‘leaks’ some further information that can only cause conflict in the England team, we’re going to act.
No TV, no videogames, no sweets. We’ll also torch all the sponsored cars – but that’s more for our benefit.
