England football fans have been speaking on the subject of the booing Chelsea defender Ashley Cole received at their hands, during the World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan last Saturday - and it seems that the reasons for it were nothing to do with his awful backpass!
A survey conducted by the BBC on its 606 site revealed that fans were most upset about the way Cole had cheated on his lovely wife, X Factor judge, Cheryl.
Almost 84% of booers said that they were "disgusted" at Cheryl's treatment, with many adding:
"any man who cheated on a woman so shagable, must be GAY."
Others pointed to then-Arsenal-player Cole's now-infamous 'tapping-up' shenanigans.
One fan, Donny Osman, an Arsenal fan of 5 minutes, said:
"It wuz a disgrayce! Cashley, - 'cuz that's the clever, original, mickey-takin' name us Goonz came up wiv, should've bin ashaymed! Namean?"
Several fans thought Cole should never have signed for the Blues. Another Gooner, Stavros Dispicopolous, moaned:
"Iss a traitor, innit?"
Away from the capital, supporters were more inclined to boo for homophobic reasons.
Griff Buggs, from Leeds, said:
"Ar booed because, clearly, Cole is an 'omo. Simple as. Tha' dunt want 'omos playin' fer England, does tha'?"
Supporters in the Midlands were critical of Cole's, and other players', rather-too-large wage demands. Arthur Cabbage, a lifelong Aston Villa stalwart, wrote:
"How can a footballer, a man who kicks a leather ball around an area of grass for a living, earn £60,000 every seven days?"
The final word went to Tommy Muggins, himself a West Bromwich Albion follower, who said:
"I work at the local comprehensive school. I try to teach English. I have to put up with attacks, abuse, thugs chucking things at my back, disrespect, swearing, and shouting in my ear - just like a referee - but on less than £20,000 a year. Now then, you just try and tell me that it's right that a spitting, squealing, moaning footballer should earn in excess of £50,000 a week. It's totally unjustified, and a poor message for kids!"
