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.
At the start of the season, my Aston Villa-following colleague Mat Kendrick compared third goalkeepers to a third nipple.
It was a bizarre and controversial opinion, but one that I agreed with then and even more so now.
Seriously, what is the point of a third goalkeeper? Of course, I understand that they are there in case goalie number one and two get injured. Clubs sometimes go through a rotten spell of luck so it's perfectly plausible that number threes will get called into action every now and then.
But if Premier League clubs only belittle, disrespect and undermine their third-choice keeper when he is called upon, what is the point?
