We’ll still be in Europe next week (but we have to beat Portugal)

22 June 2016
We’ll still be in Europe next week (but we have to beat Portugal)

Another week, another terrible England performance, and yet the front pages are all banging on about some politics or other?  Like, what the heck?!

Move aside politics - now is the time for us to feel angst about the national football team.  Every two years, this post-season lull is officially supposed to be spent lambasting the England manager, bemoaning how boring football is when none of our players can pass or shoot, lamenting about the latest minnow who has beaten us, or simply complaining about sheer bad luck.

Whilst there are some people who are taking this seriously – credit to the fan who set up a crowdfunding page to raise funds to bring Sterling home – there is still too much focus on the internal machinations of the conservative party for my liking.

Plus who can understand all the politics anyway?  There’s so many lies and counter-lies that we don’t know who to trust, or how to even get the information we need to make an informed decisions.  It’s like trying to figure out which third-placed team will end up playing against Wales, but with, like, 1,500 groups.

Before I get comments from you all – yes, I am going to vote tomorrow, so don’t worry about that – instead, please focus your worry on whether or not we’ll be facing Ronaldo on Monday, or someone worse.
