    Its pretty close these days. Liverpool lost a lot of respect over the handling of the whole Suarez affair....

    Why is it, that for the last week everyone has been talking about the world cup. And yet today, the only day when I want to talk about the world cup no-one is interested?

    I know. Their slapped bum faces has set me right up for the weekend

    It does seam strange though as they were quite convincing with their enthusiasm last week on why I should like and follow football.
    How can I help them ? Even my right fist in the air salute saying "England" is not having any effect, in fact I think its making it worse.

    Well after bringing the entire 'The Works' shop to a mute, shocked stanstill last Saturday when my daughter asked for an England Mask and I replied to her (not knowning I was that loud) "No as they will be home in about a week so you won't get to wear it for long" and everyone and I mean EVERYONE stopped with a gasp and stared at me... so I rapidly and embarrased sucurried out of the shop as they were telling me I had no faith in the team, and no english spirit. I feel bad now...oops! But maybe what I said may have been true!

    Says something when you have to go back to 1991 and 1984 since the last time an English manager won something of importance in football, does it not?

    Think you might be missing the bigger picture with the quality of English Managers and players.

    I am looking at the bigger picture - you know, the one that includes the time before Murdoch started killing football.

    Only just found out that England are out of the World Cup. That makes the front cover of the current edition of Private Eye even funnier.

    English managers have won nothing in the modern game. Looking back with misty eyes to football from 23 years ago isn't going to help now.

    We're not out (yet) but us staying in is now dependent on the results from the rest of the group.

    From BBC Sport - World Cup 2014: England boss Roy Hodgson 'not resigning'
    England need Italy to win their remaining group games against Costa Rica and Uruguay to stay in the tournament.Roy Hodgson's side then need to beat Costa Rica in their final group game.
    England, Uruguay and Costa Rica would then each be on three points and qualification would be decided on goal difference.
    But the statistics are not on England's side as no team has ever lost their opening two games at a World Cup and progressed from the group.
    If we qualify I'll eat my hat.
