A One Man Battleship

OK, another brief post.

Argentina are currently 2-0 down to Germany in the quarter final. Carlos Tevez is trying to win it on his own for Maradona's side. But, better than all this is the BBC commentator who has just said: "look at Tevez, on his own, like a one man battleship". Er, what?

Also, nice to see Germany back in their historic black shirts. Couldn't resist that one. Sorry.

Things That I've Enjoyed

Very short post today. Almost a micro-blog. It's just a shame that no-one has invented some kind of micro-blogging service ;)

Anyway, right now, I've particularly enjoyed the colour co-ordinated Germany bench. Loew wears blue t-shirt under dark blazer...everyone wears blue t-shirt under dark blazer.

Second, Bastian Schweinsteiger. He's starting to resemble a young Dean Windass.

As a comparison:

So And Thanks For...Not A Whole Lot

So, England crashed out 4-1 to a lean, young, hungry looking Germany side. And with that, the hopes of a nation are dashed. Such a shame.

The problem is, though, not that England got well and truly beaten. The problem is with the whole 'hopes of a nation' thing in the first place.

The simple fact remains that a few players aside, England just don't have that strong a squad. They're just not that great at football. Matthew Upson, Gareth Barry, Peter Crouch, etc - they're not names that will strike fear into the hearts of the world's best.

Consequently, if the big names have poor matches or get injured, then there is no quality to cover for them. England got knocked out in the Round of 16 because that's where they deserved to be knocked out. They are one of the top 16 teams in the world - no more, no less. Face facts.
