CANADIAN Owen Hargreaves from right here in Calgary.

Cheers

I THINK HARGREAVES WAS ONE OF THE BEST ENGLISH PLAYERS IN THE TOURNAMENT.

NOT SAYING A LOT REALLY, BUT HOPEFULLY THE FANS AND MEDIA WILL NOW GET OFF HIS BACK A BIT.

Pretty obviously its because of his hair
Tight curly hair on a bloke is only one step up from gingerness in my book

So for the uninformed who've been here for fourty years you are going to have to define "gingerness".

Do you mean red or ginger coloured hair? Or does it have some other more sinister meaning?

It's in the dictionary.

Gingerness - Someone unluckily enough to be blessed/cursed with ginger hair, usually accompanied with pale skin and freckles

Ok so I was correct.

What I don't understand then is what is "wrong" with this?

I don't think it's because Hargreaves is 'not from round here' I think it's simply that playing in Germany he isn't seen or reported on frequently, he just turns up in the England team. I'm hoping that he does get less criticism now, he was by far the best player at the weekend.

My views on this may be interpreted as misplaced patriotism, but it is more likely the fact that the information on the medicine bottle specifically said
'Not to be taken with alcohol' ....

Oh, well, roll on 2010 .. I may even go back to S.A. to watch the next debacle.

I don't watch soccer any more but I understand that he actually played reasonably well in the last couple of match's.

Hargreaves was magnificent against the Portuguese and played well in all the games and if they all ahd the passion he showed they would have been in the Semis at least.

It was all so predictable with the squad he picked, taking only 4 strikers (2 recovering from injury and one who hasn't played a top flight match at all), 16 midfielders and defenders in total.
