England's last game of the World Cup!!. Made my way to the ground with some lads from the hotel. An ex pat living in Sydney was amongst them and he was a Bristol City fan in his previous life. Put an open can of beer in his hand and he could annoy the Deli Lama to the point where he would have snotted him one!. He spent all of the first half with his back to the game, trying to tell me about his sisters hip operation, but it got to the point where I had to politely ask him to take his sisters hip and go forth.
For the second half I was board to tears by an England team which had less movement, than the Bristol guys hipless sister!
Bit of trouble in the crowd with a minor scuffle but this was quickly stamped out by the coppers. This then generated a lot of grief towards us from the vast majority of locals In the ground and did nothing to improve the reputation of English football. :0(
'Partied out' and deflated by the crap performance. (oh and just to set the records straight for all the rugby fans who comment about how poor English football is, and are trying to sound superior. I imagine I felt like you all did after the abysmal performance England RFC offered up in the last Rugby World Cup....Rant Over....over tired...need sleep!!.)
Altogether a crap England football experience... but hey.... what a party....I Loved it!!
Of to Rio to chill and plan the next months activities.
