Oh dear! Another crap performance from England in the World Cup. A nation expects and is left wanting and waiting for their team to play some football, after all it is their job, and they’re making hard work of what should be an easy job against the teams they’ve played so far.
The ball’s too round, not enough practice with it, excuses and excuses to cover up the glaring fact that things aint right in the England camp, they aint playing well, there’s something lacking. The players may have the physical skills and ability, but I don’t think they’ve got the psychological skills and ability to be the winners rather than the bunch of losers they are at the moment. I know they haven’t lost a game in the competition, but a couple of draws against the mighty footballing nations of USA and Algeria isn’t something to be proud of, and unfortunately unlike in other areas such as politics and economics for example the English people aint prepared to put up with any old shit,especially if they've paid a lot of money to watch the games, that’s why the team was booed as they left the field, if the players don’t understand that…. then I rest my case about the teams mental abilities. If players aren’t happy about the pressure they might be under from the media and the fans, perhaps they should look for a different job, because it’s part and parcel of the game now it’s big business; high expectations and returns are what’s required, the players have reaped the rewards at club level, now they need to deliver the goods at international level for their country, something they don’t seem caper able of at the moment. If stress, tension is the problem, then perhaps they should fly out the WAG’s (Wives and Girlfriends) to help relieve some of the stresses, then again maybe not cos players like Ashley Cole and John Terry would probably shag the other players wives or girlfriends, seems that’s the only playing away from home they’re any good at. Anyway I'm gonna try and not get too hung up on this World Cup thang, but for me it's a nice distraction to write about other shit that's going down.
