Football: Your boring views.
Wayne Simmons, Speke PS. You were right about your resemblance to Gareth Southgate, though.
YOUR column last week seemed to imply that a footballer being boring was a negative thing.
Your candidates for football's most boring man included Michael Owen, Gareth Southgate and Alan Shearer - all excellent players and model pros.
Every manager in the world would love a team packed with boring players.
I don't suppose the likes of Paul Gascoigne, George Best or Stan Collymore would ever be described as boring, but they were shells of their former selves by they time they reached 30 because of their excessive lifestyles.
Commentators and match summarisers, on the other hand, are there to entertain us and I'd rather poke rusty ONE man who may have been overlooked for the `most boring man in football' tag is Arsene `I didn't see it' Wenger.
The Gunners boss often turns down social invitations for a quiet evening in front of the telly watching re-runs of matches from his vast video library.
The pale-faced Frenchman is not on his own, though. Apparently Dwight Yorke has quite an impressive video collection himself.
