Jonjo Shelvey's 'My Dad Is Better Than Yours' Boast Is All Kinds Of Cringey

Jonjo Shelvey's 'My Dad Is Better Than Yours' Boast Is All Kinds Of Cringey
By Gary Reilly

'My dad has a Ferrari'. 'Ye well my dad has a helicopter'.

No, your dad drives an Opel Astra and your dad is working his ass off just to put food on the table and keep a roof over your head.

The 'my dad is better than your dad' game is something which almost all kids (boys in particular) have partaken in at one point or another. However, they usually grow out of it when they hit puberty. However, England midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has decided to keep it going at the age of 23.

The former Liverpool player made his second international appearance this weekend when he started against San Marino but unfortunately his Dad wasn't in the stadium to see it happen. No, he wasn't off saving the world like some kids might boast, he was sculling pints back him in Essex.

He was in the pub with his mates, drinking and watching the game. I don’t blame him.

I spoke to him afterwards and he was made up. Only a brief conversation. He criticised my long passing. He’s a coach and he’s got his own club, Harold Hill FC, Under 6s to Under 14s, so he’s got some experience. He was still sober when I spoke to him. He can drink 26 pints and not feel it.

Now kids forget about Ferrari's and helicopters, that's how you boast about your auld fella.
