Made in Shoreditch

I also contribute a weekly column to Made in Shoreditch magazine called 'Old East End/New East End', where I look at the relationship between the East End of old and new, looking at the changes and the stalwarts in landscape, residents and culture, focussing on one street or district each week. You can find it here.

The Dream

Sunday, 6 June 2010

I have managed to map a perfect route for England to get to the World Cup Final. Here it is:

1. We win our group with 9 points trouncing a below par USA team 3-0 in the first game.
2. Germany in the second round. England win 1-0 with a late Wayne Rooney goal in extra-time.
3. We beat Argentina 4-0 in the quarter final after Messi refuses to play in Maradona's madcap 3-2-1-3-1 system.
4. England beat Portugal on penalties to reach the final, laying to rest the ghost of the last two tournament exits.

Then, unfortunately, we'd probably have Spain in the final. They're a bit good. That could be troublesome.

Today I'm hopeful. Next Sunday could be very different though. I am very cynical when it comes to our national team in tournaments.
