So England's campaign is over at last which is probably a good thing for their fans. I'm sure watching the team was painful enough without seeing them take on Argentina as well. I thought England were shocking against Germany but what really makes me mad are the stupid excuses. "They were too tired" just does not cut it at all. Other players from different teams all played the same Premiership schedule as England's players this year, the same amount of time to prepare etc and they are doing fine. At least Joe Cole had the balls to just say they weren't good enough. Funny how the tired excuse wasn't used when everyone was over-hyping how the team were going to win. I mean look at their South Africa schedule! Played Saturday, Friday, Wednesday in the first round and then a nice big rest to face Germany. How tired can you be, resting in a luxury resort when you get paid millions for a few games of football??? Try working 9 to 5 in a factory with no air conditioning every day for 30 years and talk to me about tired! Try coal mines or hop over to fight in Afghanistan!
And a final word...how cool was Paul the psychic octopus who has correctly predicted all the German results in advance! No, I'm serious he did predict the England result days in advance-check him out on the Sky news website!
