    Can bet your life he is a left winger.

    Nah - I reckon he is happier as central midfield probably providing cover for a back three - he's all right foot anyway so the left wing would be the death of him.

    Nothing at all, it's 'Outside events,' or 'The Yanks' that are responsible.
    Jezza still thinks Venezuela is a success story, he just won't admit that his beloved example of socialist nirvana
    could possibly be wrong because of, well, socialism.

    Exactly right 'Nothing to do with Socialism' Venezuelas problems stem from their total reliance on Oil as a money creator for the country. This was recognised by various governments and in an effort to move away from this reliance they borrowed heavily to rebuild their infrastructure and industry.

    their problems began when the price of oil plummeted worldwide and they struggled to maintain repayments. Its this and rampant inflation thats causing the problems .....

    Or try that right wing rag the Guardian...

    Venezuela was the most prosperous country in the region, many countries that have a 'Reliance' on oil, have not
    experienced such a catastrophic collapse, check out Chavez' socialist policies and their inevitable failure.

    Capitlism is reliant upon you getting things done cheaper and cheaper. Its a Ponzi scheme because eventually you end up with these once backward countries becoming developing and wanting a bigger share of the capital
