I stopped watching England friendlies under Sven. I see no reason to return.

The Wembley crowds are becoming the story of the stadium. It will be interesting to see if anybody tries to get the real fans back to the games.

I watched the Brazil match in mild disgust at the way the fans slowly walked back, five minutes after the game had started. I thought it said something about the passion of Liverpool fans who would have sold their mothers to get a seat for the match the other week.


Is football (apart from coverage of the O's in the
Hackney Gazette) really worth the attention lavished on it? Does it really require pages and pages of comment and analysis every day? Yes, it is a great game, but I am just turned off nowadays not least by the money sloshing around in it. I reckon the staff in my mother's home are worth more than all those petulant ,materialistic ,here today,gone tomorrow non-entities who fill the newspapers with , well not much at all...

For what it's worth, I think the coverage of football is warranted and I want more of it. It's the first thing I read every day and the last thing I read each night. Transfer speculation is so much more interesting than politics at the moment.
