David Sheepshanks welcomes the press to the centre

I am a Liverpool fan and of course a loyal England supporter. This new training complex, as far as I am concerned, is much needed to bring on the future England players. As for the comments on John Terry..........he has been a great captain for Chelsea and England....I do not believe for one minute that he is racist....for  God's sake, half of the Chelsea team are black and all of them look up to John Terry.


Let us all as football fans leave this unsavoury episode behind us and enjoy the season ahead.

Sometimes I lay under my bed at night and pretend that I'm a carrot.

Im impressed with the new football centre but when I read the CRAP that most people are writing here below I wonder if they should perhaps have built a few more schools

The Government didn't build St Georges, the money the FA make from all the clubs, fans and sponsors built it and it was being opened by the President of the FA which just happens to be Prince William.

I am absolutely loving her coat and boots..  The girl has great  fashion sense which is not over the top  and in a really down to earth way....She just looks effortlessly great and comfortable in what she is wearing in comparison to other awkward overmade up looking celebs like Posh or Cheryl for instance...

Speaking,if I may,as a long standing Corinthian Casuals admirer I refer to the incident in 1869. when it was suggested that playing the game of soccer in anything but striped hose,wooden clogs and a sensible hat constituted a breach of the newly formed Rules of Association Football.Those of us fortunate enough to be at the following days encounter between the Casuals and Old Stockwellians at the Oval,  witnessed a Titanic battle which saw the Stockwellians prevail by 16 goals to 2 aided in no small measure by the wearing of studded boots .The Football Association sentenced the Old Stockwellians to 20 lashes each of the birch and subsequent banishment to Australia.It is satisfying to note to this 'old timer' that they approach the business of soccer administration in much the same way today.After all, does anybody REALLY want to win a World Cup or be European champions?Their treatment of Mr J Terry maintains the long tradition.

Jayne you will find Tom is correct the SGP project is a privately funded with sponsorship deals from Nike and other worldwide brands. You will also find Al din is correct the reason our "no clue government" and country are in this state is due largely to the incompetance of the last government.


Now next time you come on one of these thread please come with some fact instead of the emotive rubbish you have been spouting.


And FYI most ordinary people have jobs and don't live on hand outs from the state

total waste of money, unless of course you kick out the **** who run the FA and get professionals in the run the place

I never ever thought I would say this, but three cheers for Liverpool fan Anne Scott. The most sensible comment anyone has made about the Terry affair. Well said Anne.
Never seen Frank so happy. Watch out Christine.
