Players clearly want to play these matches. If you don't keep your players happy, they will leave. It is that simple. Vinny left Hamburg over them trying to stop him playing for Belgium.City needs to stop being soft and start pulling players out when required.
Absolutely spot on. Kevin playing for Belgium or Gerry Crainey being fit at home. Tough choice eh?Players clearly want to play these matches. If you don't keep your players happy, they will leave. It is that simple. Vinny left Hamburg over them trying to stop him playing for Belgium.
I do understand the annoyance on the last few pages. I don't particularly enjoy the international matches either. But for the players it is extremely important and I think that should be respected, seeing as they are the ones who actually provide the entertainment and trophies.
Yeah it’s ridiculous. I was watching the Spain game - think he actually got injured in the first half. Showed him in the tunnel flexing his ankle when coming out for half time. Then Jorginho put a tackle in on him.Just read more into this, as I couldn't give a flying duck about international football I didn't realize the implications.
He was injured during a Spain game and taken off as a precaution, yet deemed fit to start their next game a few days later, where he yet again is forced off injured.
Now, I don't know if the two are related injuries but it seems likely from what I read. Somebody within that Spain camp has seriously neglected their duty if care to their player.
I'm pretty sure the clubs are stitched up good and proper by the uefa regulations, but we should be causing the biggest stink about this. Not because it's us or Torres, or spain, or because it may cost us ponts, but because the sheer lack of common sense and possibly morality here, putting a player's safety and possibly career behind winning a game of football, is just scandalous.
