Armchair football managers are criticising the loudness of Vuvuzelas at the World Cup, because players on the TV screen can't hear their useful advice and tactical knowledge.
Gerry Armstrong, an Armchair football manager of 30 years, said "During the England vs USA game the players couldn't hear me. I was shouting at Rob Green to get his body behind the ball. But what happens, he doesn't hear me and he fluffs the save. If only those damn Vuvuzelas were banned from the ground, he would've have heard me and made that save."
The England captain, Steven Gerrard defended the England keeper, "It's not Rob's fault, he couldn't hear people back home or in the pub shouting at the TV screen." Gerrard continued, "Normally in stadiums back home, you listen to the crowd who tell you what to do and in what formation we should be in, rather than listen to the gaffer."
One manager who gives underperforming players the "hair dryer" treatment during half time, was given a red card and a two match ban by his wife for using foul language and for not washing the dishes as he had promised as part of the deal to watch the match.
Back in the Gerry Armstrong household, he regaled how he won 27 league titles, 14 FA cups and 5 world cups with his 30 year TV armchair management expertise. Speaking whilst stuffing his face with crisps, he interrupted the interview "He's miles onside, ref, are you blind? If the England players and manager listen to my advice, we'll win the World Cup", before supping another beer and another unannounced rant at the TV screen, "For f*ck sake Capello, why did you bring on Wright-Phillips? Joe Cole's has got better technique and a better final product!"
