A Mackem In Goal ... You've Got To Laugh!

George Burley believes England would be better off if they had Sunderland keeper Craig Gordon in goal. Fabio Capello opted for Robert Green over Joe Hart and the more experienced David James for the first game (v USA) ... and we all know what happened. Burley feels the Scots have a genuine top-class goalkeeper in Sunderland number one Gordon. George Burley: "If Craig Gordon was English he would be in the English team - no doubt about that. "I think 99% of people in football would say the same thing. "Scotland are very fortunate to have him and they are the envy of every country in Europe if not the world. "He missed a few key games for me when I was Scotland manager and we let a few goals in but when he played he always performed. "When he went down to Sunderland at first I think there were some slight question marks but not now. "I watched him a lot last season and he was outstanding." Envy of the world ... MY ARSE! The Jocks are sat at home ... that's how good Gordon is!
