Hopeless

The best thing about tonight's game was the thirty-minute power cut either side of half time. When we were eventually able to pay the bill and move to another bar, Shaun Wright-Phillips was on for Lennon (what's the point in bringing Joe Cole if you're never going to play him?) and England had sunk to the kind of panicky blundering last seen by Newcastle fans when Sam Allardyce was still manager. "Bring back Sven," shouted one voice. "Embarrassing" and "Shit" chorused two others. "You will go through," consoled an Algerian, "but I am surprised. I didn't know you were so bad."

after yesterday, what are the chances of both yours and ours having any early summer break?
I'm already fearing for my health, physical and mental, on Wednesday.
I even somehow find myself looking forward to the season start. Masochist me.?

Our teams are on course for a meeting...at the duty free.

not all of them .. I think Podolski would miss it (as would Hesky and Lampard) :D
and you know that we wouldn't be able to ignore the PL issue anymore.. at least World Cup allows for some denial/procrastination.
