22 June 2010 – Day 12

With Portugal, Spain and Chile all winning yesterday and giving a lesson in how to beat weaker opposition, the second round of games have come to an end. Today will see the start of the final group games and the airports of South Africa get busy as two teams and their fans depart each day […]

21 June 2010 – Day 11

Could be quite a painful week, today is just the calm before the storm. Tuesday a budget that will leave us all worse off and then the trauma of Wednesday and what England will treat us to against Slovenia. I can’t wait. Already the excuses are being lined up, with the BBC reporting that Mr […]

20 June 2010 – Day 10

The phrase there is “always someone worse off” comes to mind this morning. Whilst the grizzly details of Friday may be still fresh in the mind, I couldn’t help but think about our dear French cousins. One minute you are the darling of the crowd, European and World Champions and as recently as 2006 World […]

19 June 2010 – Day 9

“…Another nervy 90 minutes looms……not gloomy, just realistic…” was my closing line yesterday. Even I didn’t expect that it would manifest itself in the drawn game last night in such an awful fashion. A performance that lacked passion, intensity and belief. A side that looked bereft of confidence and ideas, blatantly uncomfortable on the ball and […]

18 June 2010 – Day 8

First day yesterday when I didn’t watch any of the games “live” and instead settled on catching up on the three fixtures through highlights on the internet. From what I saw I’m left with the following conclusions: Argentina look great going forward, but are not so clever at the back. Higuian’s hat-trick was a lesson […]
