It only seems like a week since the last one…
Had yet another run to Heathrow last night to pickup the boss – seems like I live there nowadays (OK, slight exaggeration, I’ve been there 3 times in 3 weeks).
Should be a good weekend – well, aren’t they all?
I’m definitely going to try to save some money – as I mentioned, I need to buy new stuff (especially a bed…shu’up bu’er) but the weekends tend to call to me: “Drink beer snee, drink MORE beer…”
Well, we’ll see…
A sterling performance from England against the Croats on Wednesday – OK, they were down to 10 men, but I still expected us to get turned over and instead we came away with a 1-4 win and top the qualifying group (admittedly it’s only early days, but a good away win has settled the nerves of the supporters at least – the team MUST be feeling good. It was quite funny actually, as my Setanta card hadn’t arrived and I couldn’t find a reliable stream on t’interweb for the game, I ended up watching it in the bar – Darren (Honič) and Brian (honič too) were there – both fissed as parts, arguing about Capello’s squad selection…RIGHT IN MY DAMN EAR. To say I was slightly miffed would be an under exaggeration – they both went quiet for a couple of seconds, cue me:
“Whoa! do you hear that?”
“What?” they both say, looking puzzled.
“The game – I can hear the game!” says I, all smiles.
“…” says them.
Brian had just been shouting saying about how Walcott should never have been picked, when what happens? Oh yes, he scores a cracker of a goal 🙂
A moment’s pause, then he goes on to say how yes, it was a great goal, but he still shouldn’t have been picked.
So what happened in the second half? that’s right, he scores again – a carbon copy of the first. Heh – that ended the Walcott dispute.
When Jenas came on as a sub, of course I started the “Yid army!” chant – must to Brian’s disgust (he’s a Chelski fan and still can’t get over us beating them in the Carling Cup final last year)
“Jenas is a w*nker.” he stated.
And what happened next? oh yes, Jenas took the ball all the wayto the line, played a beautiful cross to Rooney, who promptly stuck it in the back of the net – 0-3 to us 🙂
When Walcott zinged in his third (I think these were his first goals for England – definitely his first hat-trick). When he was substituted late in the game, he came off to loads of applause from the fans (I think most of the Croatian fans had left by then 🙂 ). After the final whistle, on trots Walcott, looking left and right – he wanted his match ball.
For a Gooner, the boy done good…
And so England march on – next match is October 11th against Kazakhstan at Wembley…c’mon England!
Heh – bet y’all have missed the football posts eh?
