Revenge for 66?

 

The better team won?

 

Karma?

 

Who cares! I'm happy :D I honestly thought we'd lose this one - relatively young and unknown team against the bollwerk that is England. Turns out, young and quick did the trick. Chuffed, very, and drunk too.

 

P.S.: The new England badge:

Hands up if your team is through to the quarter finals.

 

Just me and Amadeus then...

But it looks like Argentina are on our way!

At half time I wondered if the Germans would have the decency to allow England to walk the ball into the net... make it fair.

 

You cannot compare this to the 1966 goal. 1. England scored both 2. 66' was debateable... but this one was a clear goal. Everyone knew it, including Germany.

 

England were abysmal.. but that was a goal, and at 2-2... who knows.

Indeed. Capello was God when he got through the group stages with aplomb.

 

Sadly the World Cup has highlighted that the so called "best league in the world", is anything but. So many other "smaller" nations playing with individual skill and combined desire....England lacked pace and guile. That aint the managers fault....

 

personally I hope that Gerrard, Lampard, Terry, Cole, Heskey, Wright-Philips have all played their last game for England.

 

Time for a root and branch re-think.

Quarter finals is a great result for us. I can see us sneaking it against Ghana too which would be incredible. Don't see us going any further than that but you never know...
