And whatever other tournaments get us playing daft games.
Hmm, going around in circles and not joining up - yes, that pic seems quite descriptive.If England had been outclassed by a better team, or even a team having a great day, we'd have been able to say ''ok, they were better'' and look at the work we had to do for the future.But that match was truly dismal; nothing worked, and form seemed to have deserted almost every player. And that wasn't against a world-class team, it was against a pretty poor team ranked 22nd in the world.
No need to panic.Remember 1986?1st game England lost to Potugal 1-02nd game drew with Morrocco 0-01 point and no goals from 2 games - worse than now.Next game stuffed Poland 3-0Next game stuffed Paraguay 3-0Next game lost to the hand of God and the best ever world cup goal.I was there!Trust me, the boys will come good.
10 out of 10 for optimism.
I support Darlo. Of course I'm optimistic.I'm also used to the teams I support never winning anything.Come on Japan!
Were we really that bad in 86? Or were they just poor results? (& Portugal are stronger opposition than either team faced this time. I'm afraid I have not a single spark of optimism left. I'm sure the players think the same way. They looked baffled and dejected. Good luck against Oranje Mike. Their fans could do with a little less optimism.
I'm not biased.May the best team lose.http://i45.tinypic.com/m8070i.jpg
Half time Japan 0-0 The NetherlandsThe Dutch are awful! They're playing exactly the same as England did.
I'm not sure any team could play exactly the same as England did but there's definitely been a big dip in the quality of the football that started last night....Mike, I see you still haven't registered on this blog. If you've had trouble logging on, maybe I could ''talk' you through it using skype or instant messaging. That way, you'll be able to originate posts and upload photos.
I pride myself on my computer illiteracy.I'm quite happy doing it like this.What's skype?What are instant messages?
:-)(That's an emoticon, google* it)*That's a search engine...oh, I see, that's not really going to help, is it.
