It was a forgettable enough display for any poor neutral who decided to watch it. Lucky old neutrals I say. Its pain is still fresh in the memory for some of those involved.
I still don’t really understand the game of football. Rooney gets sent off for kicking some balls around the park. I thought that was the whole point of the game. Anyway it resulted in penalties with the inevitable result.
What’s really annoying is that it was the wrong balls that got the treatment.
Luckily things cheered up a bit with a great display from France against Brazil. I hope they can deliver up some pain for their next opponents.
Despite the stresses and strains I didn’t feel the need for any consoling cigarettes. The quit-o-meter now reads as:
2m 3w 2d 01:46 smoke-free, 2,102 cigs not smoked, £243.83 saved, 1w 07:10 life saved
