World Cup and such and stuff
Now though, it's the world cup. I've been to the bookies to hand over my biennial ten quid (England 5 quid to win at 6-1 not good value but I feel strangely confident for a change. Australia 1 quid each way at 80-1 a flutter I know but I've a feeling Harry Kewell and the lads could surprise some of their opponents, they've already beaten Uruguay and I see no reason they can't beay Japan or even Brazil. Australia, USA and Ivory Coast to win their groups. I have to say Ivory Coast's chances faded away against Argentina, I'm so used to Argentina being overrated, I never expected the hype to be pretty much true.)
So.. impressions. I found the England game almost as frustrating as Peter Crouch did, that referee didn't like him one bit. That much was obvious. I enjoyed the Argentina game obviously and the Trinidad-Sweden game was fun, although I was hoping for the Caribbean lads to put one past the Swedes at the last moment. And then today, the Netherlands-Serbia & Montenegro game. Seeing the Dutch hanging back and desperately defending a one goal league, I felt so disappointed. Whatever happened to total football.
