Please do.

And for your next trick you can regal me with tales that Rossi will be better than Owen..
Neither of whom were deemed good enough to get into the side in front of Djimi "fucking" Traore?

I will rise to your bait though, seeing as you were good enough to rise to mine. Richardson, indeed, has more to his game already than both those and, who knows, might even start for England in one of their crunch games this week in place of Cole.

As for Rossi, tell me why he can't be better than Owen? You've every reason to be skeptical, he's done nothing in the game yet but, by all accounts, it seems that Utd had every reason not to follow up their interest in Owen when we've got this lad coming through the ranks.

My job is to get a player in Unitedís first team. But he doesnít need to be English. Rossi has a wonderful chance. Heís like Jimmy Greaves, a left-kicker, tucks the ball away. But not English.Ē
