Piers Morgan’s five-point plan to save English sport

first_imgEngland’s international sides are in turmoil.The football team could not manage a victory as they crashed out of the 2014 World Cup without a win, the cricket side were embarrassed in the World Cup this year and the less said about the rugby union side, the better.So what can be done?Piers Morgan believes he knows what to do and told Drivetime of his five-point plan to save English sport.Here is his blueprint:1) Pick the best players: Kevin Pietersen, Danny Cipriani, John Terry and having captains that can handle players like that.2) Pick coaches and managers that thrive off mavericks: Don’t pick managers who are scared of them. They need to embrace difficult stars and make them work for a team. Let’s get people like Clive Woodward, Duncan Fletcher, Brian Clough – people of that calibre and that strength of character.3) Ban all reviews: Here’s my review of all those teams: Utterly useless!4) Ban the ‘happy camper’ dressing room mentality:They all sit around singing love songs – we’re not running choirs, we’re running international sports teams! Nice guys, as we’re discovering do not win.5) Get rid of 90% of the backroom teams:Who are these people? There are hundreds of them involved in every England international side. They are all irrelevant and they muddle the players’ minds. Peter Moores vs Trevor Bayliss is a great example: one meddles in everything and the other lets players be themselves. KP would have been brilliant under Bayliss.last_img read more
