It’s Ecuador then, so I’ll be spending the rest of the week with that bloody Sash! song in my head.
Anyway. I didn’t much fancy Germany or Ecua-DOR! to be honest – just cos Ecua-DOR! lost 3-0 today; I think they rested about five players, anyone who reaches the knockout stages has earned it. And on our performance today… yeah, we started well but the temptation to knock it long when we came under pressure was too great. Even when we went to five in midfield! For fuck’s sake, what’s the point in belting it over the top if there’s nobody there, nobody even close, to collect it? And Michael Owen looks like he’s out – we’ll probably end up playing five in midfield for the rest of the tournament then (it’s that or Theo bloody Walcott), which I don’t think is a bad thing – means we get to play Gerrard and Lampard and let them both have their heads, with Hargreaves holding at the back.
