The Sun has decided that Bobby Moore should be lampooned and “dressed” in OTT comedy American gear to support some story about Wembley being sold.
I don’t care one way or the other whether the stadium is sold to the Yanks or not if I’m brutally honest but I care very much about the greatest English captain of all time in any sport being disrespected in such a way.
It should be no surprise that such an awful rag looks for new depths to plunge – sadly of course they probably don’t realise that’s what they are doing.
Quite how Stephanie and the family feel I don’t know but that The Sun should take one of the most iconic pictures of all time and use it in such a way is pretty horrible.
Only Mooro gets the Yank treatment with George Cohen, our right back on that historic day in ’66, and hat-trick hero Hursty left untouched.
To lampoon Mooro is just about as cheap as it gets and even allowing for the fact that this is The Sun – it’s totally unacceptable for me.
