Typical!

With everyone* predicting a decisive win over the USA, England were bound to make a schoolboy error and give away a stupid goal. The parallels between watching Palace and watching England are often frightening. And no, this doesn't mean I think Palace are anywhere near as good as England - just that both teams have the ability to make a mess of something easy but also to often go on and do the near-impossible.

Robert Green explains said schoolboy error here

I was also watching the game on ITV HD - the fuckwits accidentally switched to an ad just before Gerrard scored so I missed the England goal! Still, at least Adrian Chiles makes the studio chit-chat bearable.

Oh well, we're bound to win the next two games easily, aren't we? Bring on the Algerians!

 


* well, probably not everyone, but a lot of people. Kevin Keegan thought we would win 4-1 with all the other ITV pundits predicting a comfortable victory, "we'll be OK" etc etc

Even if you ignore Green's mistake, we didn't play well. There were flashes of quality but they were generally lacking in ideas and fell back on long balls, often just giving the ball away. I still think we'll get through the group but there was nothing to suggest any big impact on the tournament.

This is a great article. We're now at stage 3 - Dismay
