i found this article quite amusing as capello is known as no-non sense coach and we need not to say more. he has shown his character during his rein in real madrid as coach in which david beckham was one of his player. he dropped becks for few matches before reinstated becks back into the squad and admitting he has made a fatal mistake by leaving becks out in the cold. in the end becks helped his team mates clinching la liga title for real madrid after three years drought. players need time to adjust and please mr robson you had your day and stop saying rubbish as if you could do better coaching england. i have little doubt that england will flourish under your care. give capello and players more time to prove themselves. and if, they couldn't get their act together before WC 2010, FA should decide what is better for the team. in the meantime, let capello do what he is paid for. but before ending my beautiful notes, i have another thing to say. both gerrard and lampard can't play together as center midfield. sven has tried that and ste-c proving to be loser as well by joining lamps and stevi-g in the middle. so, one thing is for sure. gerrard and lampard can't work as a team in midfield mr robson. perhaps you are trying to be a good coach aren't you mr robson? well last time i checked you weren't so successful yourself mr robson.
Drop Beckham, Robson urges Capello

LONDON (AFP) — Bobby Robson says England coach Fabio Capello must make a stand and drop David Beckham from his starting line-up ahead of their upcoming World Cup qualifying campaign.
With England due to face Andorra on September 6 ahead of a tough meeting with Euro 2008 qualifier nemeses Croatia former England boss Robson says Capello must be more decisive.
"Fabio is meant to lead but the only place we've gone so far is round in circles," Robson said in his Mail on Sunday column.
"It is time for the real Capello to stand up and start dictating to the players and the public exactly what he wants. Then he'll find people will get behind him."
Sir Bobby believes there is now little room for Beckham if England, who last week struggled to draw with the Czech Republic in a Wembley friendly, are to unearth a coherent system.
"It means picking vibrant wide players rather than starting with David Beckham when he can't get forward as he used to. It means banging Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard's heads together and getting them to play as a unit. Because they can," Robson insisted.
Only the qualifying group winners automatically qualify for the World Cup finals in South Africa.
That means the Croatians, who did the double over England in the Euro 2008 qualifiers, this time have to be sent packing.
Robson says Capello should have been more decisive in picking his skipper for the Czech encounter.
"The weeks of dithering about who should be England captain summed it up for me. I'm sure the intention was to give everyone a fair chance, but it made him look weak and indecisive.
"Steve McClaren could have told him two years ago that John Terry was the best man for the job."
