    It's why I prefer the Gaelic Football nowadays. Have you seen the size of the pitch? From the back of the Cusack at Croker the players look like ants. Or maybe they were ants and I was at home sniffing Ajax again....

    I was cheering for Scotland yesterday. Mrs HS asked why - They hate you, wear Argentina shirts and cheer anyone England play. That's' why I said, it winds them up that we don't (openly) hate them back.

    As for Ingurlund, we've been tulip for years now. There is no genuine development / progression into first teams of the youngsters and the PL couldn't give a rats arse how well the national team do.
    We got the Oystons out like we said we would

    My interest started to wane after the let down of the so-called "Golden Generation" in Germany 2006.

    Frankly, since then, it has just got worse. So bad, in fact, that I didn't even know we'd
    qualified for Russia 2018 until somebody mentioned it this morning.

    I like that. It is like showing Australians that you're not fussed even when England wins the Ashes.

    I wish the PL would get on with it and merge into the European Super League. Where it's all about the money and brand and the players don't even have to pretend to be interested in the national team.

    Though I can't take football seriously until they bring in video referees like they have in rugby. It's a shame when the highlight of some games are the poor referee decisions due to them only seeing it in real time. It's like F1 where the pitstops are the only interesting bits other than the first and last laps.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Only a matter of time but firstly we will have to have the first PL game played overseas (Malaysia somewhere)

    Come on Germany!

    Look closely you can see the tears

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
