Feng Shui And Other World Cup Nonsense

Let's be honest, no matter how much certain journalists keep writing about him, Michael Owen is not going to make the England World Cup squad. This is because he's lost his pace, his eye for goal and is, frankly, rubbish these days. It's not, as professional Yorkshireman and ex-cricketer Geoff Boycott would like you to believe, because Owen hasn't spent enough time feng shui-ing his living room.

On a tangentially related note, I'm stunned that South African commentators are still debating whether it's worth calling up Benni McCarthy. Who cares that he's lazy and falls out with managers more regularly than Pamela Anderson falls out of her top, he's still a great goalscorer. With him, South Africa have a chance to get out of their group, without him....very doubtful. Oh yes, he's not now nor has he ever been a false number 9. : what were you thinking?!

Just because he can link play doesn't make him Lionel Messi.
