England start with a win.


England 1 Paraguay 0

A good first result. We were very good in the first half, but the manager handed the initiative to Paraguay in the second half by taking "Owen" off. A very strange decision. I worry about the manager. He doe's often seem to get his tactics wrong and if we go out of the World cup, I think it will be down to him.

Now looking forward to the next game against Trinidad and Tobago. Another win is very much on the cards. We should be far too strong for them.

" We should be too strong for them" mmm? - just like we won against Paraguay by THEIR own goal?? I don't think so. WE need to guard against complacency!

I know i dont know much about football but i always think England get complacent in the second half if they have scored in the first half.

The ref was an ass in the second half too....did he get slipped a few grand or something!!

The Ivory Coast/Argentina game was better all the way through. I enjoyed that more than the England one if im honest.

Phoe,

England always have a bad second half, because the manager does not know what he is doing. His tactics are so defensive. That comes from working in Italy for ten years.

The Argentinian game was a good one. I think Argentina can go all the way to the final.

Hope your party went well.

It went very well indeed. Everyone was stuffed, except me. I wasnt hungry after making all that food. Just exhausted & in dire need of a sit down. It was a relief when the game kicked off so i could finally rest my feet.

Thank heavens i dont do parties often.
