A leaked memorandum from the Football Association has indicated that England coach Fabio Capello may have been at least partly to blame for last week's London Riots, which have now spread to other cities in the UK.

The riots raged across the capital amid a frenzy of firestorms, and authorities were so worried about the safety of visiting Dutch fans, that they called off the friendly international between England and Holland.

This was exactly Capello's plan, according to my imagination.

It seems that, I thought, Capello was so concerned that his team might lose, and that he would, subsequently, be sacked, that he decided to prevent the game from ever taking place - and that's where the idea of the riots sprang from.

He knew it would have to be something serious to get the attention of the authorities, and what better way to do that than by attacking big business, the government and the police. He probably spoke to a couple of lads he knows down the local, who were easily persuaded to start chucking a few bottles about and starting a fire or two here and there, and, before you could say "GOL!", the match was off - and Fabio kept his job for another month.

You never know, do you?
