Villa forward Emile Heskey announced that he is retiring from international football, leaving comics and internet snarkists devastated. Upon whom will they pin their wittiest jokes?
While I'd love to claim that I could write eloquently on this subject, Richard Whittall has already written a post that sums up everything I already believe about Heskey, and added some points that I'd never considered. Before you you take another crack at Ivanhoe, read this post.
Emile Heskey, James Milner and -surprise- Stephen Warnock are named to England's 30 man provisional roster. Downing, Gabs and Young are excluded, unfortunately.
Anything surprise you about these names? Who do you think will be dropped?
