England Fiasco

Paul Robinson lets Gary Neville's pass into the England goal
Gary Neville's Pass Goes Past
I don't normally complain and I normally try to keep my blog posts civil. However, I would just like to express my loss of patience with the England football team. First it was 0-0 to Macedonia, then 2-0 to Croatia. Perhaps if Paul Robinson opened his eyes while standing in goal he'd be able to see if a ball happens to be coming in his direction!

These people get paid huge amounts of money. Perhaps they can put me on the England squad. I'd happily be paid a few million pounds to not be able to play football. I'm sure that I would be quite good at providing a lacklustre performance and hoofing the ball into the wrong net.

Year after year, tournament after tournament, good or bad, we get behind our team (after all, they're all we've got). Come Euro 2008 (if we qualify), I'll be singing the songs and flying the flags from my car window, but sometimes I lose patience and have to vent.

Here's a good blog post on the topic: Do I Not Like That

I join with you in mourning the football disaster. But - back to black pudding (I hate the name blood pudding)- it is so important to go to an independant butcher - they make them properly - not those tasteless dry, wrapped-in-plastic things you get in supermarkets.

I totally agree with you. You have to have a good, independent butcher. Supermarket blck pudding is not really black pudding. It's a poor substitute.
