Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

I am so late again. I’m cutting it so fine I know; I have literally 107 minutes to upload this picture using my very old phone and very dodgy internet connection. And, to be completely honest, it’s not a great picture. ‘Fleeting moment’ doesn’t say much to me. It makes me think of chaos. Of […]

“It’s all I have”, I told the hungry eyes.

Today, I was having a hard day. Or a hard-ish day more like. I was shattered and waiting for the weekend desperately. I was hot. I was bored. And I’d been stuck in an office for about five hours. I needed a break. So I took a short walk outside my office building. Just around […]

And what did England do to deserve that!?

Have FIFA gone crazy? Did someone mix up the facts and figures from our last European tournament? Or has someone just decided it might be a wee bit funny to tell the whole world, WHOLE WORLD, that the English football team are the 4th, FOURTH, best in the Whole. Entire. World. Yup, the only teams […]

SPAIN vs. ITALY

The best, most important and most thrilling game in European football. Supposedly. Can the World and European Champions and the Italians give us a game to remember? A game of the ages? A game of goals and banter and decisions and ‘thrillingness’? Or will Spain triumph tremendously and win the way everyone has expected them to? […]

Q.How did England win last time?

Here’s a quote from Jimmy McIlroy, an Iirsh footballer, from 1960: “Between the ages of twenty-seven and thirty-two, footballers are in their prime. It is from this age-group that teams capable of winning the World Cup should come. If, then, England intend making a serious challenge for 1962 honours (ie. win the 1962 World Cup), […]

Why do youngsters pick up ‘technological stuff’ better than the older generation?

A few weeks ago my grandparents handed me their new camera and asked how did they look at the pictures. Now I know how to do this. I know I need to find a ‘review’ button, or a ‘show’ button or a ‘gallery’ button. My grandparents know this as well. They just have no idea how to […]

What (not) to say….after the semi-finals of Euro’s 2012.

DON’T SAY No wonder we lost to Italy. They beat the Germans! DO SAY It’s always good to see the Germans lose. WHY?~Never mention England losing. Always mention Germany losing. Where applicable obviously. DON’T SAY Portugal almost beat Spain so they’ll be easy to beat for the Italians. DO SAY Pirlo is going to be […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

A teeny bit late- I’m sorry- but here we go. So, CREATE! In my opinion, every single person on WordPress who blogs, has ‘created’ something almost as incredible as a work of art or a novel or a classic film. Blogging takes time and hard work and creativity and you have to care. All these things […]

GERMANY vs. ITALY

The second and last semi-final. Germany are favourites as most people have been enjoying their football very much so far, myself included and I would very much like to see a Spain, Germany final. However, they have an awful record against Italy, losing to them in the semi-finals in 2006. Italy were not expected to […]

SPAIN vs. PORTUGAL (updated)

And so begins the point where we little down the best 4 in Europe to the best 2  in Europe. Spain are the current European AND World champions are the Favourites. However, Portugal have many good players and have reached the last four in recent tournaments. Score SPAIN 0-0 Portugal A.e.t SPAIN 0-0 Portugal Both […]
