Well, the dust has settled on a truly awful World Cup for England. I don’t really think there are too many excuses to be levelled here – we just played badly throughout and were eventually exposed by a much better team.
Of course, the press are asking for Capello’s head on a silver platter. I don’t see why, really, he’s a world class manager and I don’t think the problem begins with him. There’s just something so spectacularly… spoiled about this current crop of players. I mean, what does it matter to the likes of Lampard and Ashley Cole is England lose? We need some hungry young men in that team.
It wasn’t any easier watching it in the pub, either. It was full of men in trilbies and their girlfriends. Why would you go to the pub to watch the football if you are a) wearing a hat? or b) a girlfriend with no interest in football? Don’t even know they’re born.
Well the good news is that I did manage some luck playing at the online casino when I got in. I felt bad, like the luck of the entire nation had been used up on me, while the rest of England suffered. Still, £80 is nothing to get all philosophical about!
This week will be spent tying up some loose ends at the studio. Mainly sampling and adding a couple of vocal tracks, but every time I sit down at the computer for a long period of time and get some work done I learn something new about the software I’m using. Didn’t think I’d still be learning past 40!
Now I’ve got the weekend to plan. God knows what I’m going to do – watch Brazil work some Samba magic on Saturday I guess!
