Euro 2012 Outrage: England Team Showers Invaded By Tubby Sun Journalist

by | 5th, December 2011

“WE’RE GUTTED – England training camp is a dump,” announces the Sun’s front page. England’s training base for Euro 2012 at Poland’s Hutnick stadium is not up to scratch. Maybe the Poles should import some English workers to show them how to do the plumbing?

Over page 1,4 and 5, Nick Parker gives the once over to the “muddy, waterlogged pitch“, “rubble-strewn changing rooms… barely fit for a pub team“. A labourer poses for a photo as he wheels his wheelbarrow.

Says Parker:

“A tubby security guard puffed on a cigarette  as he lounged in a grim concrete stand.”

In the unfinished showers, a paunchy, balding British journalist pulls on a replica England shirt and looks upset, nay, outraged and forlorn. He, unlike Wayne Rooney, is not smoking.

With just 6 months to go, the pressure is on for Polish builders to compete the tiling AND the grouting,

It’s just awful.

Note: Should England lose at Euro 2012, the stadium and showers will be too good for them – Capello’s boys being no better than a pub team.
