I Miss England


With the 2nd round of matches just completed, Euro 2008 has proven to be an enjoyable ride so far. Nice attacking football, great atmosphere in the stadiums, lots of great goals, Greece got eliminated...so far so good, eh?

But somehow, I felt there is something lacking, I hate to admit it but......I think I miss England. I am not a fan of them, no never! Yet I must admit that the English media as well as their supporters adds color to any tournament.

I miss how the English press always exaggerate their chances of winning a tournament even though they haven't exactly won anything in recent memory.

I miss how the ridiculously optimistic English supporters always believe the hype generated by the media, full of praise even though they played like headless chickens.

I miss how the mamak stall near my place will be so full of England fans even though watching them play is like hearing Posh Spice sing, pure torture.

I miss reading about the amount of money spent by the WAGS during their latest shopping spree.

I miss how the English team is always blessed with the 'World's Best Centre Back : Terry', 'World's Best Midfielder : Lampard/Gerrard', 'World's Best Striker : Rooney', 'World's Best Left Back : Ashley Cole', 'World's Best Freekick Taker : Beckham' ...they have the world's best in every position! Yet Russia & Croatia managed to qualify ahead of them ^~^

I miss seeing how they got knock out by another penalty shoot-out.

Finally, I will miss the silly excuses they use to comfort themselves when they got kicked out of a tournament & the hunt for a scapegoat to take the blame.

Yeah, I miss England. Euro 2008 certainly feels a little bit empty without you guys hehe

To those England fans out there, please do not be upset. There is still the World Cup in 2010 & England had a good chance of winning it.....if they managed to qualify that is *wink*
