Is this the ritual kicking that has taken its toll on Silva this season. Refs give him next to no protection and this sums up the neanderthal approach to football in this country. It's no wonder we are unable to produce any fucker with an ounce of technical ability. Can yer run fast, are yer big? Fuck all else matters it would seem. So sad! Surely though, there is no need for David to play in those friendlies for Spain. Go and have a nice break instead.
