Eddie, I was just discussing that with my boss. It's because it's cool to slag England off, and just as cool to love Brazil. Simple fact is, Brazil have started just as bad as us, but the thing is, they've been lucky to win their games, whereas however poor we were, we still deserved the points.
Watch out, for as soon as it pleases them they’ll send you out to protect their gold in wars whose weapons, rapidly developed by servile scientists, will become more and more deadly until they can with a flick of the finger tear a million of you to pieces
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
