Not updated here for ages..i guess there has just been far too much to keep me occupied, what with 3 games a day during June, fabulous weather and exams all out the way :oD
A few observations on the tournament though.
1) After half time in the stadiums when the camera gives a wide picture of the pitch and opposite stand, there are hundreds of empty seats where the "suits" are away troughing into prawn sandwiches and beer. Who let them in? If you dont want to watch the game...get out.
2) Why do players not sing their national anthem? If that was me, id sing as loud and long as i possibly could. I dont think id ever have a prouder moment than singing my national anthem before a world cup match for my country
3) The german squad still annoy me more than ever; cold, wooden, emotionless and starey-eyed who were cleary playing a different game from the one i watched! "it was our game. Germany deserved to win it
" sayd one if the players in a post match interview. Ok, whatever you say. I thought the Italians show much more passion and determination to get there in the end. Grow up and stop sulking germany.
4) And the one that annoys me most. Diving never used to be a part of the game. The players a such a bunch of pansies these days. Whingeing big girls.
Uch well. Thats about all that was bothering me.
