If only the FA had put Frank Lampard up in front of the media yesterday instead of John Terry.
The England vice-captain came out and denied any talk of a player rebellion, even a lone one from Terry, in such assured, relaxed fashion that he may have even convinced those who reported such an uprising yesterday that it were not true.
Lamps then went one step further and mildly chastised the media by reminding them of who held the power in the player/press relationship.
It was all very well handled by the Chelsea midfielder, who was open, erudite and intelligent. He's got an A* in Latin, you know.
Here's the latest video from the England training camp.
