No laughing matter
IS anybody else infuriated by the footage of the England players disembarking their plane that's being flashed up on Sky Sports News today?
Just hours after that disastrous and embarrassing World Cup exit, Ledley King and Ashley Cole are in fits of laughter as they come down the steps, with both seemingly not bothered that the Three Lions had just let their nation down.
I could only presume that the pampered pair were joking about which interior colour they will choose for the their next Bentley. Perhaps the suggestion 'Illuminous pink' was what triggered the hysterics?
As any passionate England fan knows, yesterday afternoon was no laughing matter and for King and Cole to be so publicly enjoying themselves while millions of loyal supporters were sat at home or traipsing around South Africa depressed is frankly disrespectful.
It's proof that England means much more to us than it does to most overpaid professionals.
