Football, for all its heartbreak and splendour, is one of the most backward-thinking pastimes going. It's not just about goal-line technology, or there lack of. I hear chants of homophobia every other week at Old Trafford, even the odd bit of racism here and there. If boss Fabio Capello can come out and say, "We played well", after that performance, he's representing denialism in its upmost form. What the fuck is up with that? England didn't "play well", they were fucking shocking. He just can't admit to himself his own faults, much like most who play the game, watch it and run it.
