    Cheer up, Rooney has been cleared to play, I'm suddenly very excited about the prospect of the scouse manc scally running onto the pitch

    it's a shame that the whole country can't stay off work when the World Cup is on, but people need beer!

    Indeed - I like to think of it as doing my patriotic duty, supplying the nation with intoxicating liquids.

    And it looks like my blind faith in Rooney's recovery has paid off. Now all we need is 20 minutes and a goal from him today and the nation can breathe a sigh of relief.

    If Rooney plays there will be an immense buzz around the country. I can't wait.

    Just imagine the atmosphere against Sweden if he's named in the starting XI. What a boost in confidence.

    No way in hell am I working then. I'm not working the quarters or semis either, whether we make them or not!

    I will never forgive England for their woeful performance against Nigeria in 2002 for a variety of reasons

    a-it arguably cost us a place in the World Cup Final, due to the path we would have had had he won
    b-I got up early to watch it and it was a pile of ****
    c-the main one, as a result of us not winning the group, I had an A Level while we played Brazil

    England vs Brazil


    It is just before the England v Brazil match. Ronaldinho goes into the Brazilian changing room to find all his teammates looking a bit glum.

    "What's up?" he asks.

    "Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it's important but it's only England. They're sh*te and we can't be bothered."

    Ronaldinho looks at them and says, "Well, I reckon I can beat them by myself-you lads go down the pub."

    So Ronaldinho goes out to play England by himself and the rest of the Brazilian team go off for a few jars.

    After a few pints they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the teletext on. A big cheer goes up as the screen reads

    "Brazil 1 - England 0 (Ronaldinho 10 minutes)". He is beating England all by himself!

    A few pints later and the game is forgotten until someone remembers, "It must be full time now, let's see how he got on." They put the teletext on.

    "Result from the Stadium 'Brazil 1 (Ronaldinho 10 minutes) - England 1 (Lampard 89 minutes)."

    They can't believe it; he has single-handedly got a draw against England!!

    They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate Ronaldinho. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sitting with his head in his hands.

    He refuses to look at them. "I've let you down, I've let you down."

    "Don't be daft, you got a draw against England, all by yourself. And they only scored at the very, very end!"

    "No, no, I have, I've let you down...I got sent off after 12 minutes."

    He can't possibly moan today - Sven's change of formation paid off in big style.

    What you mean when he eventually switched to having proper wingers actually playing out wide like I've said all along...

    Also it's about time Beckham (or the vegetable) let someone else take the shooting free-kicks, you know someone who's not had a huge number of them over the past 3 years for England and failed to score off any of them. Also regardless of the fact that Beckham managed to finally produce a decent cross on his umpeenth attempt that led to the first goal his general delivery was awful.
