'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - Evra Was Wrong!

One of the most shocking moments of the last World Cup was when the French refused to train.

Having witnessed the expulsion of Nicolas Anelka from the squad, due to a foul mouthed outburst directed at the national coach, a vote was held and the players decreed they`d not be training the following day.

It`s an action that Sir Alex, speaking to the North American media, has refused to condone, remarking,

"I`ve spoken to him (Evra). They made a decision, which I think they all regret now in not training."

"It was a terrible decision. It wasn`t an individual decision, it was a collective one which, as captain, he took to the coach."

"And because of that the rebound effect has been very much on Patrice`s shoulders."


Can you imagine if a similar scenario ever happened at Old Trafford? The hairdryer treatment would be the least of their worries I suspect!

Whether you approve of what Evra did or not, the reall idiots in this whole affair were the France Football Federation. Announcing that Domenech was to stand down undermined his authority and turned him into a lame duck. And as we've all now seen, if the manager lacks authority, the players will run the show. Evra is not blameless, but there were others just as culpable.
