I was a bit gutted about that match. I thought we deserved the win. We weren't exciting, but up until Rooney was sent off, Portugal did fuck all, at times after the break they didn't even get it out of their own half. And when we had 10 men they were poor and unenterprising, not taking advantage of our plight. We should have gone on to win and had a right royal showdown with the Frenchies.
I actually want Italy to win the tournament. I was cheering for them yesterday and glad they beat the Germans. I don't want the French to win, and I certainly don't want the Portuguese to win either. I'm suprised there aren't a few bricks through the windows of the Portuguese shops that have cropped up around here. Although I tend to think Italians as arrogant and boring, their team has grown on me. I also like the fact they're failable - you know they're shakey at penalties just like us. Plus they have the best central defender in the world by a mile. Cannavaro was incredible yesterday. So it's, 'Italia - Italia' as far as I'm concerned.
That's pretty good. Who comes up with these things anyway? Does anyone ever know the exact person responsible for such jokes? Really they ought to copyright these things so we can go up and congratulate them.
I do, however, remember him taking the reigns of Paul Daniels' previous show, 'Wipeout'. It was legendary for one thing only: a pretend audience that was found out by viewers for having the same laughter track every show. Quite how some people found the will to compare laughter between episodes is beyond me though.
