World Cup 2014

I see they've sent Rooney to Fat Camp for a couple of weeks. If he lost a stone and gave up the ciggies then he might be able to play for 90 minutes.

Looks like a better squad than we've sent out for a few years. We'll still probably get battered though.
Frazier Cranium

Looking forward to the tournament though, I is.
Dock

England's first game 11pm K.O. I've got more exciting things to do at that time of night, like sleeping for instance. Last England game I watched was when they were shown up against Germany in the last World Cup. They are neither deserving of my time or interest. The whole thing is over-hyped knackers. End of dispatch.
Frazier Cranium

I might disagree with you on this Dock, this could be a intriguing admittedly boring game of football, and that England (v Germany) is very different to the present squad.  But anyway, each to their own, I love the World Cup finals overall, and this year's is going to be a spectacle of high degree because of the location,

And England are more entertaining to watch now.  ps I missed Slash at Glastonbury to watch that shower of shite performance by England on the big screen there, the shame the shame.  (Left early to watch Ray Davies though )

I used to enjoy watching Euro and World matches at the Social Club. There was generally a decent crowd in there and win or lose the experience was improved as a result of being shared.

Last Euro Championships there was only have a dozen down there. Partly because we were shite, but also there's so many people with 65in plasma screens in their living rooms that watching it on the big screen in the club is an inferior experience.
Bollocks to them I say.
Forest

Don't have to watch England to enjoy the World Cup. I can't fecking wait, better than the Olympics (except 2012 of course) and any other sporting finals IMHO.

Just about the best goal i've ever seen

Hope that talented yet impetuous tyro Sterling has learnt something from last night. You can't expect to put in a tackle like that and stay on the pitch.

Unless you're playing in the final and the ref is Howard Webb †

By all accounts, he's already had problems after putting his tackle in.

there's some seriously bad haircuts and shit beards in the squad this year.

If they gave points for tattoos we'd whup all these foreign chaps asses though.
Late Doors

Well so far preparations have gone ok. Our brave boys have survived electric storms and despicable foreigners trying to hurt them.

Quite looking forward to it actually. Thought id be utterly non plussed about England but somehow they've got me wanting them to do well. Anyone follow usasoccerguy on twitter? The guy is the †best thing on there, err apart from foz and t'b and err bull if course. Oh and lol, and fin. Jeez yeah fin. Foo as well, TG naturally, Dock too, err So apart from them usasoccerguy is the best. Oh n Mick Mc, Cuts, my mate Si and err everyone else

Stupid game.

Fair result I thought. Our set pieces were terrible. Baines is the only player in the team who can hit a dead ball.

Which fucking doughhead Head of Sports Programming at the Beeb gave the go ahead for Michael Owen to be a commentator? That monotone voice really adds to the pace and excitement of a World Cup fixture doesn't it. Fucking what the fucking fuck! Knackerknobs. That is all.
Grind

We had Steve Macmanamanamanamanaman here.

Probably better than ickle Mikey though.
Grind

Here's a dull quiz - Michael Owen scored in the last England World Cup game (the last one of any variety I saw was Netherlands v Scotchland) Grind attended.

Any guesses? It didn't end well.

It seems a bloody long time ago.

Was Phil Neville wasn't it? Either way your point is valid.

So rejigging the team to allow Potato Head to play in his favourite position led to his first World Cup Final goal.

Yay!
Grind

Suarez - much like Pirlo - someone should be man marking him the entire game.

Clueless tactics (and defending) again.

I hate to say it, but John Terry wouldn't have let at least one of the goals today have happened.

Welcome to the new era of English international football.  Devoid of scrappers aka the Pearce/Robson/Adams/Ince era we now how technically brilliant players - technically brilliant on a training field that is - who are so over coached they don't know how to think for themselves. Well take a tip out of those mentioned above - if you lose the ball (and yes it happens) then don't just look up and expect someone else to pick up your mistake - bloody well go and try and get the ball back.

At the end of the day English football has become a predominantly international affair due to Murdochs billions. That shouldn't be an issue though as it should allow English players to develop alongside their foreign counterparts. But it clearly isn't working is it. And you know what - I don't know why not.
Late Doors

On a positive note    there is still a chance we can qualify if all the moons collide. On the negative side, we just aren't as good as we thought they were. They tried unlike 4 year ago but their best isnt good enough, collectively or individually in all areas on and off the pitch.
Grind

It's official. We're shite.

Yeah cheers Italy, luxuriantly haired twats.

Great assist by Stevie.

Right first things bloody first. You can't lay the blame JUST with Murdoch. And I find the boycotting of Sky by folks because of him to be the shittist most ineffective protest in the history of the world EVER!

Murdoch presented a package and the grasping hands of football clubs signed up to the aforementioned package, as did fans who celebrated foreign signings (including LU) who were drawn into the lucrative Premiership.

And now the seeds that were sown by all that fucking greed and tv rights and sponsorship and all the other knackers that's entrenched and a part of the Premiership have now sprouted, mutated, and bitten the fucking head off English football fans, clubs, and the national side. Whilst agents, players and owners of clubs were buying cars and other tacky shit no one was investing in youth. And the result of that is England being out of the World Cup. The shining example of importing and relying on foreign players. The whole thing is pathetic. Complete knackers! Three lions? What a load of babakaka. It's manufactured nostalgia. End of dispatch.

Packing nashers like that I bet it hurt a bit. Shame innit. A scorer in the world cup finals but what he'll be remembered for is taking a chunk out somebody's shoulder.

I hope he brushed his teeth before the game

Gotta say it this world cup is fantastic. Some brilliant team performances if a little light on individual brilliance. I hope our lads are watching and thinking, shit, we've really missed being part of something special

I suspect they've gone back to their wags, tinted range rover sports and rolexes and forgotten about it already.

I'd really like to see Colombia win but it can't happen.
