After watching Adrian Chiles desperately fumble and wibble on and on about forks for an hour-and-a-half there was no danger of anybody watching at home needing any assistance falling asleep, but it is being reported this morning that some of the England players took sleeping pills to guide themselves off up the wooden hills to Bedfordshire after the aborted Poland game on Tuesday night to help combat the Pro Plus caffeine pills they’d already taken to keep themselves pepped in case of a late kick-off.
So, WERE SLEEPING PILLS TO BLAME FOR ENGLAND’S PANICKY, LUMPEN, TURGID, UNIMAGINATIVE, ENTIRELY PREDICTABLE PERFORMANCE IN WARSAW?!!?
In a word: ‘No’. If Nytol really was to blame last night, then what, pray tell, is their excuse for the last ten years of ponderous, terrified drudgery?
Face it, we’re just treated to slightly better or worse variations on exactly the same pattern.
England just can’t do this ‘open play’ thing. Thank f**k for corners, or we’d never actually see a goal.
