The American’s just don’t do football, or what they would call it “soccer”. Mind you judging by yesterdays game neither do England. Last nights “SoccerTainment” match between England and USA was dire to say the least. I watched the first half in the pub but left at half time in disgust.

Fair play to Sven for fielding a team of youngsters and previously uncapped players, they do deserve to prove themselves ahead of the World Cup Finals next summer but based upon last nights game I can’t see any new faces joining England in Germany.

The only player who sold himself well was Kieran Richardson (ManU player who was on loan at West Brom this season). He scored two goals on his debut, both in the first half.

While the American’s pushed England and played well, although scoring a goal they never looked like beating a poor England side. Just shows, they made be arguably the strongest country in the world not at football though!

Still, there were a few good players, maybe new Manchester United owner Malcolm Glazer was at the game scouting out new Yankees to play at Old Trafford!!! :o)

While on the topic of football I ordered the new Leeds United home shirt on Friday. Not over the internet, I’m not making the same mistake as last year! I rang up the order line. I should have the shirt by 4th June, wonder if they’ll get it right this year?

    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.
