Not a football fan but tried to watch England last night.
Not impressed, is that the best the over payed, over hyped England team can manage? Reminded me of school PE lessons.
Bored of World Cup already so think will avoid any more games if possible, agree the sound of someone farting down a vacumn cleaner pipe is very irritating. Media has ruined the who event with blanket bombing the country for what feels like months.
i have enjoyed watched several games so far, I am trying to be open minded and appreciate what each team are offering but obviously hoping England progress. I was impressed with the US side, thought they showed some imagination at times with their passing and a draw was a fair result. For England, Heskey had a very good game but is a holding player in theory to aid Rooney but Rooney was dropping further and further back to get the ball. Robert Green made two very basic goalkeeping errors with that goal but now is not the time for the media to have a go. He will either be dropped or backed, either way move on. As a team, England (in my opinion) were poor lacking in imagination and final ball quality. But it is the first game and generally England are slow starters. Im not sure if there are enough quality players in the squad to come through but maybe with a tweak here and there the team will come good.
Didnt see Argentina so cant comment on them but will no doubt be a threat. Germany looked very good indeed but whether that was because they were or that Australia were that bad only time will tell.
The swarm of bees in the background are ruining the atmosphere, no doubt there, who ever introduced those things into the tournament made a big mistake.
