My biggest fear is that you'll come right.
You're certainly capable of it and history shows that, after a slow,
laborious, disjointed and tentative start, England can find their form
and most importantly thier confidence.
We've heard all this negative talk about England before, most of it
comes from the English themselves. You're very quick to put yourselves
down when it comes to soccer, it's alway's been "we were crap",
"pitiful stuff" or "***y Hoddle! (coach that is, not the player!)"
Then suddenly, usually without warning, England find the back of the
net and send others packing for home. You start playing to your often
elusive potential and become a fearful opponent for every side on
You're not out of this WC by a long shot. You can find the rhythm, the
heart and the effectiveness to reach the Final, and then anything can
happen. It is not a dream.
Then again you can stay playing the way you are and be on a pretty
quick flight back to Heathrow where your brutal media will wait for you
with *** grins on thier collective faces.
