'Becks was the Blair of football'
Announcing his retirement, David Beckham says he’s hurt that some people don’t celebrate what a brilliant footballer he was and instead remember the ‘other things’.
What ‘other things’? That affair with Rebecca Loos? The red card for kicking Diego Simeone in the 1998 World Cup? The over-stuffed pants? Or just the awesome greed in promoting Brand Beckham?
Take your pick.
His wife Victoria says he is ‘not just an inspiration to myself and our children, but millions of people worldwide’.
To millions more, Beckham will always be the Tony Blair of football — a good-looking and gifted bloke who, spurred on by a ghastly and grasping wife, morphed into a preening egotist who was far more interested in making millions on the global stage than on public service to his country.

Happened to see via Sky Sports News that Birmingham have released Keith Fahey, a former Republic of Ireland international midfielder, perhaps even played under McCarthy when manager of the Rep. of Ireland. He's looking for wide men.
I'm not saying this player is any good BUT...by association with McCarthy, who knows?

NO MIDFIELD...As Mathie says amusingly 'Carlos Edwards is in dream land' and 'Martin has provided nothing'. How often do we have to hear those words and how long will it take before they're dropped. Even if it is for Murphy to come in on the left and give Nouble or JET a go, they can't do any worse than Edwards. The problem is of Nouble or JET is that we have no other options....
