    The anthem should be I vow to thee my country.

    Or that John Barnes rap from World in Motion.

    Yeah, but it's kind of keeping on getting proved wrong, I mean they could start doing a wistful melancholic chant about when that was first released now. It depresses me a bit, TBH.

    Probably the best of a bad bunch.

    Certainly better than the current one.

    And I really couldn't cope with Jerusalem. 'No' and 'Get it yourself you lazy sod' spring immediately to mind.

    It is a great bit of music but I always prefer it in its original Planets form without the lyrics.

    Great, the pitch tomorrow is going to be "playable".

    Brilliant, it's not like these things happen every 4 years or owt, surely we should just be happy that it's not a ploughed field.

    Yay.

    Pfft, never mind the pitch, the team, the tactics. Important question. When do I start drinking?

    I started about half-four yesterday, and missed the end of the last match. I think I can safely say I won't make the last match today, but I have to be properly drunk to watch england, you can't do it sober. Logically it means about half-5 I suppose. Yet logic goes out the window when the World Cup is on.

    Home, will probably be out for the next two matches. I'm not a fan of going out for England matches, can't get beer, can't go to the toilet, can't make out what is going on, but others drag me along, they think it's traditional, *****.

    SSN reporting Buffon is broken for the game.

    I'll be heading to the local about half seven to snag a seat and watch URgay smash Costa Coffee before the main event.

    Somewhat ill-advisedly I've already had a couple whilst watching the cricket. Copped a quick doze on the couch and was awoken by the appeal for Mahela's wicket.

    Think it's 8 or 9pm. Which means it'll be 3 or 4am for me

    I couldn't hold out any longer, a Premium Steeplewood Cider to start the horrid damage to my liver.

    Got back from London at 6, we were planning on finding somewhere to have a few beers and watch the Uruguay game but the whole of Manchester city centre seemed to be hosting a nobhead convention so watching at my flat. Had always planned to watch the England game at home anyway.
