Ichabod is itchy

Going out on a low…

Filed under: football — by ichabodisitchy @ 9:13 pm

Well- woke up this morning so excited but will be going to bed so terribly low. England and Brazil out on the same day. No reason to follow the rest of the world cup now… Why am I feeling so dejected? I don’t even follow ‘normal’ football and have only learnt who Terry, Cole and Robinho are over the past 4 weeks. But there’s something about the world cup that carries you up and sweeps you away. And now we’re lost at sea– for another four years anyway.




  1. Look on the bright side, Sian, they’re both excellent teams and they outperformed many others. If it wasn’t a real ‘contest’ there couldn’t be any real pleasure when the win comes. They’ll have their day and won’t you be happy then!

  3. Jenny is pleased becuase of the 4 teams she pulled out of the childminder’s sweepstake, one was France. So Malcolm has come over to her view and become a France supporter.
    The atmosphere was dreadfully gloomy in our house when England went out (and surprise was expressed at Brazil), but having seen glimpses of their game I did think their strategy was a bit lacking – they never seemed to know what to do with the ball once it got past the half-way line to the other side’s goal. And all those injuries (and not having a replacement striker) and sending offs — I think they seemed rather ill prepared. Sven is probably to blame, he’s off now though, wonder if the next person will be any better? Glad to see that Beckham has resigned as captain (it was on the Times site today when I went to get the polygon)….he was feeble I thought.
    At least Baden-Baden did well out of it byall those England footballers’ wives shopping there. Apparently they spent in a day on clothes what the entire population of the region spends on them in a year — or something like that.
