2010 was not the best year for an English football fan. Lots of ups and downs but it was more of a downhill journey. With rumors exploding left and right and captaincy being tossed around like an unclipped grenade, it was chaotic.
Fabio Capello had a tough job. If managing a side like England wasn’t a hard job as it is, the immense pressure projected by the media and the people made it all the more difficult.
Proud Englishmen didn’t approve of Capello just because he’s non-English. Others had questions against his tactics, still others just like to hate.
During all that time, English players were not allowed to meet their WAGs. They wanted to spend their footballer’s money and traveled anyway.
You might wonder who were those women? Why was it so important for them to travel with the players and be near them even when their boss forbade them to? Or maybe you’re still wondering about the girl’s behind you saw.
