"The Nation asked for heroes and instead we saw cowards and weaklings. Never can these boys be allowed to sully the sacred white shirt of England again. Never can they be allowed to disgrace this land and it's proud people. Never may they betray our Queen with their cowardice. This is a shameful day."
Gotta say I really can't stand the game. Last world cup I thought I'd try and make an effort and watched a game but I turned if off after fifteen minutes. It's weird cos I don't mind reading about it afterwards. In fact maybe not that weird, sometimes I read about the Tour de France or whatever and it wouldn't cross my mind to watch that either.
Footie has arguably been spoiled by money, diving, var, hypw etc etc but the actual game itself I will never stop loving. Watching or, better still, playing it's the king of sports and someone saying different just sounds like gibberish to me. I realise that's totally unreasonable obviously.
