Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
I gran dolori sono muti ~ great sorrows are mute
England beat France
France beat NZ
England > NZ

You Poms, eh. Not every NZer has been banging on about how great the ABs, but as soon as England wins a couple of decent matches, out comes the AB-hate.
Anyway, not a big fan of any of the semi-finalists.... not too sure who I want to win... It'd certainly be a bit of story if England or Argentina win... The Yarpies will surely win... won't they??

Athletes dont want to be running their fastest times in the lead up to a major comp but building up to being their best when it matters.
4 years of being great and then failing counts for naught.
Which is exactly right. I'm not too sure what it is about the English psyche that means that when their teams are doing badly, they'll unfairly bag them only for them to relaunch like the Lazarus Phoenix when they win a couple of games. This seems to hold for most English sporting teams. Vastly unfair on the teams themselves when they're doing 'badly' and sooooo annoying for the neutral when the English do win a couple of games.Originally Posted by Perm
