It’s not you, Robert Green. It’s them.

Here at Fordiebianco HQ we have been enjoying some lovely footy. Well, mostly watching the German friendly training game against Australia, but we also dutifully watched our host nation’s attempt at glory. That wasn’t as lovely. But the relentless battering via the so called ‘popular press’ here in the UK is not only contra productive, but also completely misguided.

If a first class team like the English one is not able to put four goals past these minnows from across the pond, then it’s not Robert Green’s problem. It’s his team’s. This one goal should have just been a foot note in history.

So Robert, old chap: cheer up.
