The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

World Cup - England Algeria ...

What a bore !!!

England 0 Algeria 0

England will certainly have to do better than this - they were very poor and lacked any commitment in tonight's game.

After the USA game the goalkeeper was blamed but tonight that blame has shifted to the manager Capello. How long will he remain manager if they fail, which is quite likely given their lacklustre performance.

We await with some trepidation England's game with Slovenia next week.

boring indeed - i only half watched it as I can see the screen from my computer chair.

I've drawn Japan in a sweepstake and they seem to be doing better than England so never know what will happen.

I know how all the supporters felt. We felt much the same - only worse - after we were beaten up by Uruguay and all the urging and wholehearted supporting couldn't fire up the team! But its only a game I keep telling myself. But good luck with the next match.
By the way I love your walking penguins.

I don't know much about football but I seem to rememebr that England always struggles yet mostly muddles through to almost the end so don't give up hope yet.

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
