Well done England, something to smile about at last!
« on: Dec 10, 2010, 03:03:56 PM »
What a ray of sunshine for us in this frozen land, that our lads are doing so well down under. To trash the Ausies as they did in the second Ashes test was pure brilliance and certainly lifted my spirits ;D ;D ;D

I must admit that my one great pleasure in life is watching a good cricket match and I have indulged myself with Sky to watch our lads, and well worth the money for the results so far.

I don't watch cricket but like the idea we might actually win something. 

I have to say I am relieved we did not get the world cup for football as I hate football but disgusted at the way we lost.

17 million to lose!!

If there were 220 voters instead of 22 maybe they would not be so corruptible

What really anoys me about this world cup vote they already knew who was going get it along while ago, but let various countries waste money entertaining them. They are picking countries which have never had it before.

Why, no matter what one posts, and where one posts it, the thread invariably ends up on FOOTBALL! I almost hate it with a vengence if only because wherever it goes, trouble isn't far behind.

Personally I'm not sorry we didn't get the 2018 yobball thing, having read about the latest football riots in Russia. They can keep their, and the rest of the world's yobs over there.

There, I'm still here!

Yes I thnk our football people were a bit arrogent and almost assumed that we had it in the bag. Having said that, I do think football is totally corrupted, like so many "money driven" activities. As a game it is brilliant as all you need is a ball of some sorts and you can play. This makes it available to all the kids in deprived countries like Africa. It's only when it gets big that the problems start. Anyone who gets a six figure sallary for doing what the African kids do will immediately think he is a god, behave like one and thereby encourage his fans to do likewise.

Bugger, you got me onto football!

Really looking forward to next week, game three! Treplett in place of Broad and spirits high! Look out the Aussies 8)
