Car Crash Performance Against Germans Confirms English Game is Dead

By The Pugilist, June 27, 2010

The World Cup Autopsy can now begin as it is official and conclusive, English football is dead! Once again the hopes of millions were dashed as our multi-millionaire so-called football stars failed miserably to deliver even the faintest of hopes at another major tournament.


No heart, No passion, No Idea!

For a start a few certainties have been answered since England‘s draw in their World Cup opener against the USA. Rob Green’s World Cup is over and so potentially is his England career. Jamie Carragher’s brief return to the international stage and it was brief is also over after picking up a second yellow card against Algeria and so it would seem is Ledley Kings’, the permanently injured Tottenham defender who rarely plays two games on a spin for his club side is, yes you have guessed it, injured!


Points system a total fiasco

By The Pugilist, June 16, 2010

How many Jewish families out there with young Jewish children have to rack up points in order to qualify for a Jewish school placement?

The new points system which was introduced last June following a ruling by the Court of Appeal is an utter disgrace. Forcing families with young Jewish children to attend Synagogue is outrageous and unethical.


England - Same old story

Did you enjoy England’s debut in the South African World Cup? Do you think it is a coincidence that these unfortunate football situations ALWAYS happen to England?

In my opinion the answer to both questions is a residing NO!

Fabio Capello is a great manager and his record speaks for itself but why oh why when it comes to England do these great managers get it so wrong?

Sir Alf Ramsey is the only manager in England’s World Cup history to get it right and that was back in 1966 on home territory 44 years ago.
