Green Man


After the disappointment of last Saturday's game against the USA, I think everyone was expecting for a fired-up England to make sure they did the business against Algeria to get their World Cup campaign back on track.

Instead, they just seemed completely clueless and Algeria more than had the better of them, making it one of the dullest games of football I've ever had the misfortune to watch. As for Rooney - he has had two poor games and it's not surprising the fans are frustrated. At least Gerrard admitted afterwards they weren't good enough. If we scrape through to the next round by beating Slovenia, we're sure to crash out in the first knockout game.

In other football news, I am very pleased the new owners of Palace have picked George Burley as our manager, and also that Dougie Freedman (Palace legend) will be assisting him. Starting to feel optimistic about next season.....
