Farewell Capello

All the news today seems to be centred on the resignation of Fabio Capello. He appears to have become incensed over the Football Association’s removal of John Terry as captain of the England Football team. In very difficult financial times it is quite hard to accept the obscene wages of players and managers alike, who seem to have evaded politicians expansively muttering about the greed of bankers. At least the bankers bought art with their massive incomes.

7 March sale

On the other hand, I was talking to Bill Clark of Clark Art, who is without doubt one of the most successful gallery owners in the country. He told me that he could sell paintings to anyone, except footballers, they bought cars. So come on Wayne Rooney, John Terry et al and buy some paintings, we have plenty to sell in our next Grand Auctions sale on 7 March.
