So England are second favourites to win the World Cup and just 2 games away from doing so. That's just weird! How disappointed will you be if they go out against Croatia next week or lose in the final? Before the tournament started I'd have been surprised if we got out of the group stage, not because of the team but because that's just what happens with England in international tournaments. There's no way I'd have expected them to win a penalty shoot out or get to the semi-finals so I'm already well chuffed. If the wheels come off now it's been a great ride. The players and the remarkably decent manager in particular have acquitted themselves with class and dignity that we haven't been accustomed to in English football and so far the fans have been pretty good too. Well done all round, I say.
