Am I the only one who is pleased with England’s 4-0 win over Kazakhstan in the World Cup Qualifiers? We won, but the way the media and pundits carried on post-match, you would have thought England had just lost 4-0!

I am not sure what the pundits actually expected from the match. Do they regard Kazakhstan as a third-world country, full of one-legged players with webbed feet; therefore demanding England destroy their inferiors 32-0? Kazakhstan were a tough opposition that had to be beaten. Maybe they wanted champagne football. The state of the pitch meant that even Barcelona would struggle to play exciting football.

England play Andorra on Wednesday at Wembley – a match I will be going to. On paper, Andorra are inferior to Kazakhstan. This makes me wonder what England can possibly do to please the blood-thirsty, knife branding journalists. Personally, I would expect nothing short of a 117-0 win for England. I want Emile Heskey to score a hat trick and then fly out the stadium, land on the moon and bring us all down a piece of cheese to eat with out £25 box of chicken and chips.

I guess it could be worse. I remember not too long ago, England beat Macedonia 1-0, leading to fans believing the World Cup was theirs. Let everyone think we’ll fail – the same attitude the Spanish media took pre-tournament in 2008 – we all know what happened then!

In other sport news, I am delighted that Jenson Button has won another race, moving even closer to the Drivers’ Championship. Even this didn’t stop the media from moaning though, who accused Button’s ongoing success as ‘boring’ *bangs head against wall*

I also enjoyed the Twenty20 game this evening, where England did well beating Pakistan. Let’s wait and see what the media make of that… Man of the Match, Luke Wright, obviously cheated and is a disgrace to his country and his equally useless team mates.

    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.
