He scores...

Seeing Smithy give the England football team a good dressing down was the highlight of Comic Relief for me last night. In a superb piece of writing and performing, Smithy got to say to that bunch of 'no-hopers' just what we all have yelled from the comfort of our armchairs. As soon as Smithy asks the smartly-dressed and highly paid footballers for "reimbursement of his plane ticket to Austria which he bought 3 years ago UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THAT YOU MIGHT QUALIFY FOR THE EUROS" we knew we were in for a treat. The delightful Essex plumber goes on to justify his continuing faith in the team but gives them some valuable advice which clearly current and past management have failed to provide. I have no idea how most of them kept a straight face, though Becks was clearly struggling to hold back the mirth most of the time! Not sure if James Corden wrote the sketch himself, but hats off to the writers - goal definitely in the back of the net there! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, take a look on YouTube.
