They are given vast amounts of money and hero worshipped by their club supporters. They cheat on their partners with their friends partners, they get involved in pub fights and involved in other sexual activities 'roastings' prostitutes etc, as well as the obligitory alcohol sessions. They can afford the best lawyers to get them off assaults and speeding offences when they have been obviously guilty. They feel untouchable. Now as young, well paid men, it would be very hard to resist. I for one would have struggled. Now look at the Germans. A young team, still very well paid. I'm sure any scandal would have been jumped upon by our national press on the build-up to the game. Zilch, nothing. They obviously appreciate how lucky they are to be in that position and work on their technique and weaknesses. How many of our golden generation can even kick with both feet? We even had one player who turned down a move due to his WAG girlfriend wanting to stay in London for the shopping. Hardly a reason to stop progressing your career. We just dont have the mental backbone of other nations. Riches undeservedly come to them too easily for little return when it counts. No doubt we will get their pathetic excuses on their return before the rush to get into print their World Cup diaries and earn even more money. Who is to blame....Sky, their upbringing, the press, fame, the fans? I would probably say a combination of them all. The one consolation is that I believe that England fans are beginning to realise this and although disappointed could see we were obviously inferior to the Germans. What is the answer....I honestly couldnt tell you as I cannot see it changing.
