Well that was another frustrating game for England and certainly not a performance to convince anybody to close the streets of London in anticipation of a World Cup victory parade.

I watched the game out the back of a local pub with Simon (whom I watched the T&T match with the other week). It was a dirty, hot and smelly room which was full of chavs. One of which was blowing a damn whistle throughout the whole match. I was hoping that they would inhale it, choking to death and therefore shut the hell up.

There was some Vicky Pollard type girl sitting at the back who kept Simon and I amused during the tedious moments.

About halfway through the first half she piped out “What’s Alex Ferguson doing on the bench?”, to which everybody looked bemused until somebody pointed out to her that it was in fact Steve McClaren the England coach and soon to be manager.

She became very anxious when the goalkeeper Paul Robinson took a free kick from the corner flag “He’s out of his box! Why is he out of his box?” She also started shouting hysterically when Joe Cole picked up the ball to take a throw in “He’s picking up the ball! Why isn’t he getting in trouble?”

Still, England won thanks to David Beckham, who by the way I haven’t slagged off at all during the tournament, unlike most people who seem to hate the man. The only ones I dislike are Frank Lampard and Owen Hargreaves, who are just like a pair of chefs that keep dropping their pancakes… useless tossers.

I did manage to catch the game between Holland and Portugal, I say game, it was more of a fight. Four players were sent from a referee who handed out more cards than a blackjack dealer. England will play the winners Portugal on Saturday. Whether Portugal have any players left to take part is another matter.

Oh, and after all that I still found time to make a mix for the game. Stick it on your MP3 player tomorrow and relive what was a truly excellent game of football! :o)

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
