We’re through then…

25 Jun

Quarter finals here we come. Just four shots on target, a fine goal from Becks (making him the first England player to score in three World Cups), and some pretty serious questions asked of us by one of the weakest team to get out of the groups. We're really going to have to improve, and quickly.

We watched the Argentina game here in San Diego in an massive Mexican restaurant: 800 mexicans in a barn, and us. Absolutely unforgettable experience, and a real shame for mexico. Argentina definitely looked vulnerable…

Perfect result for England in the Portugal game today: sixteen cards, two reds on each side… lucky win for Portugal… I can see the revenge factor coming in to play pretty seriously next weekend. No Deco, which although bad for the tournament is great news for us. Astonishing that Ruud didn't start…. he'd not have missed that one on one with the keeper Kuyt fired straight into him. There has to be more to that story… it just doesn't make sense for van Basten to leave him out.

England are going to win the World Cup.

    Get in there, you know it makes sense.

    My feeling is… we’re in the quarters by playing terribly, so… at some point we have to play well, right?
