It might be hard for people to understand just how important your average English man considers success in the world cup to be. Even faced with the evidence that the manager has sent the wrong team and told them to play in the wrong formation and in the wrong way, they still consider that winning the whole tournament is pretty much inevitable. Trouble is, reality is different, so when the team lose on penalties in the quarter finals, your average English man sinks into a deep depression. Today hubby has suggested he might move to a darkened room and stay in bed. Of course he didn’t quite do that. But he has spent the whole day moaning that if you are paid £100,000 a week then you should be able to score a simple penalty during a penalty shoot out. He definitely has a point and no doubt if he were paid such a salary he would be able to do such a thing. If he were paid that amount, I would of course be out with my personal trainer, or shopping or something and likely miss the event.
So it is all over for another 4 years, hubby and teen son are now supporting France, perhaps because we are going there in a few weeks or perhaps because they have Arsenal and Chelsea players in the team (or some other similar reason). This is the last week of the tournament, so normal TV will be resumed byMonday week; yipee!
