World Cup Moan!

15 06 2010

I haven’t commented on the England Vs. USA game before as I didn’t really know what to say. Now it turns out that I do. I felt that we played OK and that I was right all along that Emile Heskey should not be playing for England. ( Why have we taken a striker who can’t score?).

Ledley King was always going to be a liability and that was proven after 45 minutes.

I also don’t think that Robert Green did too badly and it was a freak goal. Even David Seaman, Peter Shilton and Gordon Banks had their off days.

I don’t want to jump on the bandwagon of saying that Capello should get the sack after this one result, but he has made some bad choices for this World Cup, not helped by injuries. Time will tell, but I don’t think that we will get to the Semi-finals.

I hope that today brings around some excitement as so far only Germany, helped by a dodgy sending off have looked convincing. Portugal, Brazil and the Ivory Coast are all in action today and all 3 could do well. So far most of the games have been uninspiring, so I am hoping for a bit of Brazillian flair, or as much as I hate to say it, Christiano Ronaldo to do something good.

Still, you never know, anything could happen. North Korea for the Win anyone? Its currently 22/1 at paddypower.com (other betting sites are available, its just the first one that came to my non-betting mind).
