Created by super-fan Glenn McConnell from Blackpool, the case against the Manchester United midfielder is made:

Tom Cleverley, owner of 13 England caps, six more than Ross Barkley, Adam Lallana and Leon Osman combined, has been regularly selected by Roy Hodgson in his squads without possessing any genuine qualities whatsoever. We believe for the reputation of this proud footballing nation that he should be prevented from participating in this summer’s international showcase. Whilst England are considered to disappoint at major tournaments, further embarrassment could be avoided by not having his inept performances undermine the rest of the team’s efforts.

Many on Twitter thought it was a bit harsh on the “sensitive” young player, but enough others enjoyed the moment with glee.

Hodgson is right: there was no reason to start a Cleverley petition – he was doing all the work himself to avoid a call-up. Shame on you

The BBC making that a headline story is only going to get the number up to the required 15,000. Clearly their plan all along #Cleverley

That petition against Cleverley may be slightly harsh, but I do agree with the fact that 'he doesn't posses any genuine quality'

— Callum Greenwood (@mancmalaga) March 5, 2014

I agree Cleverley is terrible but if we start signing petitions for those not fit to wear the shirt, we'll run out of ink before oil!
