Five months into the job, England coach Fabio Capello conducted his first press conference in English Tuesday, with some interesting results. According to Jim White, he may already have introduced a new phrase into the language.
 
When Capello was asked who his captain would be for Wednesday's game against the U.S., he replied, "John Terry. I think is good decision for John Terry after no nice Wednesday." White says that "as a euphemism for what happened to Chelsea in Moscow last week, 'no nice Wednesday' will surely catch on. Avram Grant could describe the day he was sacked as 'no nice Friday' or Sven-Goran Eriksson refer to the owner of Manchester City as 'no nice man.'"
 
He also referred to Chelsea midfielder "John Lampard," rather then the usual Frank. "But with Capello it is hard to know whether the slip was deliberate or not. Perhaps, far from being in awe of England's 'untouchables' as certain of his predecessors were, the new man simply wanted to prove he wasn't even on first-name terms with them."
