    I'd settle for a similar siege job from us, without the stress of penalties at the end of it as an added bonus

    Not sure URGay are all that, really. Only made it via the play-offs, after all. Suarez gets a good, solid boot early doors and they're struggling. Cavani's no mug, but they are all about one man.

    I mean, Lugano (their captain) can't get a gig for West Brom, currently.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    I think if it was in Europe I wouldn't be that bothered, but the conditions will suit them, and we have no decent defenders at all, so Suarez becomes exponentially more dangerous.

    So excited for England vs Uruguay too.
    Well as you said Jesus saves. Front page of the Sun today really made me laugh, it shows a picture of the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer with the headline: Lord Help Us!

    Only making it via the playoffs isn't quite a fair comparison though. The South American qualification is by far the hardest of all of them, even without Brazil.

    England team looks good attacking wise but defensively um

    No surprise really for a side with Liverpool's spine

    The friendlies making me keen for the real thing.

    Might be because I'm too lazy to hunt for club football broadcasts.

    Got Pavarotti on replay at present.

    So many memories from Italia 90 even if it was heartbreaking at the end.

    TBH, a lot of that blame should go to on Rooney who basically let Pirlo do what he wants. He's key. If England can keep him relatively quiet they have a really good shot IMO as Hodgson looks to be a bit more positive than last time - which was basically just defending deep.
