And what did England do to deserve that!?

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 […]

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.
