Even Cashley Didn't Deserve The Pathetic Booing

By no means is Ashley Cole a likeable player. His greed is well-documented and he's an utter twat on the pitch as well. Of course, one with an Arsenal upbringing then moving to Chelsea... but never mind.

Last night he committed a ridiculous mistake as he was way too arrogant to look up before sending a pass inside... it was only Kazakhstan, after all. They duly capitalised on that which led to sections of the crowd booing Cole for the rest of the game.

Now this is pathetic. What if it happened in an important World Cup game? What would these do then? I tell you what: it would be David Beckham 1998 all over again, maybe with a little less ferocious hatred as he's not a United player. But he could expect dartsboards with his face on them etc.

Generally the crowd was very positive but a few showed ignorance and immaturity by getting on Ashley`s back, though many fans were trying to gee him up as well." - Ferdinand's opinion.

It's not like Cole needs much encouragement after such a gaffe, Rio: his ego survived this intact, I'm sure. But still, booing him for one mistake? And then they're ridiculed when they say they are inhibited by the pressure that's on their shoulders when playing for the national team, especially at home.

Agreed, that was just plain idiocy - watched the Scotland game, and was seething with jealousy at the passion of their support.

Thing is, if any England fan expects a flawless campaign during which no mistakes are made at all then it's better start booing right now, boo it out of their system as they will be disappointed.

Can't stand Cashley since he moved to Chelsea and it was an awful unnecessary blunder .. but I agree he still didn't deserve the booing... It was bang out of order

I was SHOCKED and AMAZED that fans could be so fickle! When a player makes a mistake, instead of helping him forget it quickly and getting back to focusing on the game, some "fans" chose to do the unthinkable!

Maybe the so called support is partly responsible for the national teams failure to produce the goods. The press just fuel this and have done for over 10 years.
