I would laugh, of course (it’s only a game), but instead I’m weeping. Weeping for Andy Gray, for Sky Sports, for Sven, for Steve McClaren, for Martin Samuel, for The Sun, for Alan Shearer and Alan Hansen, for the FA, for 1966 and all the f**king bullsh*t that continues to contribute to England’s inability to play this game we all love. How anyone thought England could win the World Cup. Now that is a good one.
Sincere congrats to Germany though. Ambitious, progressive, lovely to watch. A real team. I hope they go far. Mezut Ozil, please don’t go to the Premier League. It will twist you, ruin you, spoil you, rid you of your gifts.
