The black cabbie's rumour about England's poor showing in the world cup are pointing their finger's at Steven Gerrard. The rumour is that during the run up to the world cup, a gag order was imposed stopping any one mentioning the following Story.
The alleged story is that Steven Gerrard did willing, get a sixteen year old girl pregnant, just before the world cup. Naturally the England camp was spilt.
John Terry the former England captain, had just lost the captains arm band for of field activity, and would have been incensed if given to someone just as guilty as he, yet was not allowed to mention it.
Which all leads to a England camp, that would be far from happy to play football at the weekend together.
Someone please tell me this is just an empty rumour, and not the reason that we exited the world cup so early. How stupid would we look if we could not even take a team to the world cup that could get along with each other.

Overall we had too many individuals for sure and no team ethic. It's sad but we've turned into the Dutch in that element although without the excellent technical ability and brains to run in diaganol lines and make space.
The answer is to finally build the national youth coaching centre and once and for all solve our never ending problem of having a half working conveyer belt of talent. 2 semi finals in all those tournaments speaks for itself. We should be better as a nation than we are but unlike other countries never sort the root problem out.
Aparrantly the Scots don't like England using the British national anthem in sporting events like the world cup. They stopped using it for the Scottish team a few years ago, replacing it with a Scottish national anthem,...
