    Eric Cantona says he was disappointed to see England slump out of Euro 2004 but the exit of the French left him cold. The former France and Manchester United ace said:
    I do not support France. I am French but I am not interested in France. I would like to have been born in England - its my country.

    I know they dropped him after they failed to qualify for the World Cup (1994?) along with l'oreal boy Ginola but renouncing one's country seems a little much

    edit: to include link + pic
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    Why?? i'm not a supporter of this Dutch team either, although i'm Dutch...

    must say, that i'm not since they make Advocaat manager of the team. I really dislike the way he selects the squad, and let them play. Always thinking defense 1st, where the best Dutch game is to play offense...

    Look at this tournament, he let van der Meijde play although the guy hasn't performed well. His reason behind it... van der Meijde isn't good as a sub... my reason don't select him then.

    Almost the same goes for the way he treats van Hooijdonk, the guy had a great season in Turkey. Was in topform but he thinks if he put him in the squad he has no one on the bench to make the offense stronger when we're behind...
    The guy doesn't think: With van Hooijdonk we could be in a lead, so we don't need a substitution to break the defense of the opponent.

    Also the way he played the test matches, always giving Kluivert a place in the starting line up although he had a terrible season in Barcelona...
    He could have test the other (great strikers&#33 or select a guy like Jimmy floyd Haisselbank, wich is a good one to come from the bench!
    Even if the Dutch become champs, i'm sure we could have been bigger champs with another coach!..

    You're absolutely correct but we're in the semi, so please for the guys in the team, give some positive vibes for a match or two.
    With the talents to grow maybe this is the only chance in years to come to get a prize with the team. It would be only the second prize ever (after 1988) although we had and have great players.

    Perhaps I wasn&#39;t clear; I meant the odd thing was that Cantona renounced his whole country, not just renounced supporting his countries football team.

    In any case I kinda agree with what you say about the Dutch coach&#39;s tactics, Holland aren&#39;t as attractive to watch as in previous tournaments but then they&#39;re in the semi&#39;s. Given the choice I know which I&#39;d prefer

    The paparazzi are the seagulls, Cantona is the trawler and an exclusive on why he kung-fu&#39;d the nazi in the Selhurst Park crowd is the sardine.

    Man Utd were giving a press conference in reaction to Cantona dishing on some idiot and literally every journalist in Britain turned up expecting Cantona to give them a full and frank account before lunch - it was never gonna happen. He chose to tell them that in a colourful manner.

    sorry about that, I didn&#39;t write that reply.

    a few of my mates stayed over last night and judging by that message, my keyboard being covered in lager stains and marmalade plus my desktop wallpaper is now a picture of a naked septogenarian - I reckon they did a bit of surfing, bastards

    um wrt your message, you&#39;re probably right but that analogy was my first thought when I heard him say the seagull thing and I&#39;ve stubbornly stuck to it
