Check Your Passports

FA Vice-Chairman Dave Richards' wants a British manager to manage England, saying "I do believe it's time for a British manager..Somebody who understands our passion, belief and commitment to the game. "

He continues, "For me, there's no distinction between English and British."

Presumably, he is talking about (Northern) Irishman, Martin O'Neill - one of the favourites for the job. There's just one problem with that - O'Neill isn't British either. Northern Ireland is not part of Great Britain. It is part of the United Kingdom - but that's a different thing altogether. Don't believe me ? Well, if you are a UK citizen, check your passport.

Does this matter ? Probably not, but let's at least be accurate. It's not too much to ask.
