A WOMAN consoling her boyfriend over the loss of Terry Venables has asked how come England never won if he was so good.
Lauren Hewitt is unsure why her boyfriend Jack Browne is so devastated by the death of footballer and manager Terry Venables seeing as he never led England to victory, so has decided to ask him and find out.
She said: “It’s upsetting that he’s died but I feel like I’m missing something. Is this one of those bloke things that women will never truly understand?
“I mean fair play, he only managed England once and took them all the way to the semis so that’s a good track record. It’s not like we could never do it again though, just look at Gareth Southgate. So cheer up, yeah?
“You were never this cut up when your gran died, and she didn’t bring any silverware home to the England trophy cabinet either. It doesn’t make sense.
“Oh wait a minute, are you actually mourning the loss to the world of 1970s detective fiction? No? Okay, I give up.”
Browne said: “Great, now she’s watching the 1996 penalty shootout on YouTube to try and see my point of view. As if I wasn’t sad enough.”
