Just watched Belgium v Scotland.

The Scottish are nearly as hopelessly optimistic as some of the Carlisle fans on here - 'we can take pride in getting beat 3.0 against the number 1 team in the world' (to a Belgium side who were just in first gear)!

But the one for me was the welsh bloke who looked like a zombie with make up - 'you have to take your chances at this level'.

You have to take your chances at any level!

I've always found it really odd when people say there are no easy games at international level, or that players aren't international class.

Most games at international level are pretty easy for England, it is when we come up against the 10-15 other decent teams that we have a problem.

Any English forward in the Premier League should be able to score against the lesser teams in qualifying competitions, thereby making them international standard.

I cringe everytime i hear a pundit say "the goalkeeper made himself big" no wonder the striker was put off.

For the love of God do not tell Jamie Rednapp the ‘literal’ meaning of ‘literally’.

It gives me joy to hear him say such phrases as;
“Rooney is literally on fire”.
“That ball was literally presented to crouch on a plate’.
“He checked back on his right as he literally has no left leg”.
“Barcelona literally passed Arsenal to death”.

He is literally a comedy genius!

He's literally "thick as pig shit"...

Be just and fear not

One of my favourites was a couple of years back when Mark lawrenson, showing spectacular insight into how a league table works, claimed that "any team wanting to win the league is going to have to finish ahead of Chelsea"

It must be tough being a commentator though. The best game last season was Lincoln at home.
Lumsden. That shakells going to find this division too easy, player like him. 10 minutes later, shackell is off for an early bath.

Phillips. Mike Jones never scores does he. Follows a long muse about Jones never scoring which is interrupted by Jones thumping the ball into the corner
