Here we goooooooo…

We’re finally in Japan on the same soil as our boys, who in 3 ‘n’ a half hours are taking on Brazil. The tension in me runs. We are heading off to Shizuoka to get as close as we can, have no ticket and aren’t certain of a big screen situation and have also heard that it can be difficult to see games at all!!

Surely not!!

We shall see.

    Sorry to hear about the tension in your runs Phil – that’ll be all the spicy Korean food no doubt… or perhaps a premonition of the game to come :(

  4. Thanks for the mince Caz, you are the wind beneath my wings.

    I love you I love you I love you

  5. Gutted.

    Now Germany are 1-0 up against US, the Americans denied a clear penalty for what David Pleat described as “Frings’ last gasp hand job on the line”.

  6. oh you romantic fool Michael!

    happy anniversary darling

  7. I’m sorry to have let you all down (I’ve always thought that Seaman is overated!) but the good news is that I plan to make it all better by making an honest woman of the lovely Caz….as soon as she says “yes”….Caz…????

  8. Sorry to everybody for my terrible performances throughout the World Cup. I know everyone keeps banging on about how good I am being the captain and all that, but at the end of the day all I did was score one poorly struck penalty against Argentina. The rest of the time I was shite.


    P.S. – Don’t worry Alex, I’ll show how good I am again for Man Utd in the Premiership and Champions League next season.

  9. P.P.S My hair looked great though didn’t it, and that is really important thing!!!

  10. No, David, your hair looked shite too… worse than the Japanese teams’ coiffes.

  11. PS Japan and the England team equally shite… no screen, no fun, and no win. More on that if I can be arsed. Which I doubt.

  12. What an anti-climax – but the boys done good to get that far – a bit of perspective is often called for in these situations. When Sven took over, we’d lost to Germany and drawn with Finland and were not going anywhere. So the last eight of the World Cup is not too bad. Roll on Euro 2004 and Germany 2006…

  13. I’m off for a haircut….

  14. hi,well done for how far you got in the world cup,next time where going to make the final:).michael why do you not have an offical web site:(please do one)i hope your all haveing a well earned rest and good luck for the future.amanda
