World Cup Winners

I expect most people saw it, it was like watching any team managed by Sam Alardyce kick Arsenal around the pitch. Anyway the good guys won and Spain partied!

Talk Spite

Saturday, June 19th, 2010

I doubt many of you listen to Talk Sport. I think it’s aimed at White Van drivers and it’s so over the top that it makes me chuckle. The highlights are phone-ins and quiz time.
This week they were playing “Know the score” not maths, this is talk sport remember but a quiz about theme music from films.
Play music….the contestant has no idea “Can you give me a clue”
Presenter “We’re in a continent watching the world cup, when it’s over we will leave for for home, we will be..?”
Contestant “Zulu?”

Senseless noise in South Africa

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

In desperation and at my wits end due to that senseless noise during the Italy – Paraguay game last night I reached for the red button and there it was option 1 “commentaries” just scroll to the right and select “no commentary”
Jonathan Pearce and Mick McCarthey silenced.
The games have been a bit dull but I’m looking forward to see who I can silence next.

Listening to Radio 5 and silencing Graham Taylor might be a bit much but he deserves it. I listened to him describe how a game had become “stretchy” this apparently is when the game is stretched and he followed this up with “what we call getting round the backside” I’ll leave you to figure that one.

I might go back to Springwatch tonight.

Didn’t expect a win.

I didn’t think we would beat the US and wouldn’t have been surprised if we had lost so a point is OK. Heskey did well but you just knew he wouldn’t score when he got his chance.
I’m old enough to remember when West Ham players won us the world cup, bet their fans are keeping a low profile today.
Can’t wait for Algeria v Slovenia, well I can actually…

I hate wasting time…

…which is why I ‘ve spent the last 3 hours listening to Talk Spite waiting for the World Cup squad announcement. As an Arsenal fan I have mixed feelings about Walcott but at this moment it looks like he won’t be going.

So while waiting I’ve made a FAQ page for the website, if you can think of anything I should add, let me know.

Oh well here’s to watching Heskey in the summer.
