Lol. A lot of truth there. It seems that a lot of people are just getting bored, tired, fed up of the whole fucking thing. Money has ruined the beautiful game really. When that cunt Raheem Sterling is earning 190k a week you know its well and truly fucked.

I'm going to get heckled and booed out of here for saying this (so par for the course), but football leagues the world over could learn a thing or two about salary caps. It's the one thing from North American professional sports leagues that's worth emulating in the rest of the world.

No player is worth 190K per week - especially one as shit as Raheem Sterling.   That's insane.

The Q&A portion of the DVD reveals just how much of that story was based upon the writer's actual experience in jazz drumming. Nucking futs!

I was busy reffing, but Portugal didn't deserve this. There's no way in fuck they'd be able to beat Germany.

A few people on the sidelines were watching it on an iPad and when I heard them yelp (they were all wearing Portugal kit), a part of me died inside. A damned shame.

Watching the Portuguese play over the course of this tournament has been as exciting as watching ice melt.

Glenn Hoddle can wipe my arse Hop Head. France scored a home run right there and put a few into the aul onion bag.

Despite Germany being 'my team', that was some of the worst penalty taking I've seen. What on earth was Boateng thinking with his 'I surrender' pose inside the box to allow the game to get to that point is beyond me.

I would love to see Iceland take out France, but I don't think it's going to happen.

If the Manchester Sunday League consists of blokes yelling and screaming at the ref because they're more upset that they're a drywaller instead of Cristiano Rinaldo, then it's okay because we already have our fair share of that over here.   I don't need to fly to Manchester just to turn around and fill out incident forms for mass confrontation.   I've already been privileged enough to be running the line on a game where the middle dished out five reds and abandoned the game; which involved me preventing the other AR and one of the managers getting into a boxing match as the game was abandoned. All for a U16 boys rep game.  Fun.

For the record, I have no desire to seek out my coaching badges until I have kids of my own that play.

My goal now is to become a regional referee and then hopefully provincial and national. That's the trajectory I'm on, but age is catching up with me and time isn't on my side.  Oh, and I'll make sure I carry on calling things like travelling and illegal defence...

Dermatitis, when England can beat Iceland at a major tournament, get back at me yeah?   You may recall I called that one a while back and you're so obsessed with putting me down you can't determine the difference in between your arse and your face. They no doubt look the same and exude the same amount of flatulence.

This is from a man that wears sunglasses when he plays SOCCER.

A common misconception Danny ole boy. They're prescription sports glasses that have progressive tints in them, so whilst every other geriatric cunt on the pitch is running around like headless chickens, I can score a smashing strike from twenty-five yards out like a boss.

Never mind the fact that I haven't scored a goal in two seasons!

I'll take my solidarity anywhere I can find it at this point - even if you have to wear a silver bomber jacket during high summer to prevent immediately being sunburnt.

Does anyone honestly give a flying toss who manages the England team next? We've had highly regarded managers, we've had poorly regarded mangers. We've had fat managers we've had thin managers. The result remains constant.  Expecting a different outcome "next time" is the definition of insanity.

IMO the problem surely lies with the mediocre pool of "talent" the manager has to choose from.  Let's accept the fact that we as a nation are a bit shit at tournament football until some better players (eventually?) come through and lets move on.  I'd like to see us field a team comprised of championship players next time, or perhaps midgets?

Your problem lies at the youth ranks and the culture surrounding English football.  The German system was suffering from similar problems until Klinsmann came along and totally changed the culture of football in Germany.  The results now are clear and are paying dividends there.  England needs to do something similar and going with an English coach doesn't strike me as the place to start.  You guys should chase someone down like Oliver Bierhoff or Jurgen Klopp.  It won't happen, but it would be a fair bet better than chasing down someone who's currently unemployed - and English.

The English are smug when it comes to football.  I see it on here.  You see it on the pitch with the lack of heart for their national sides.

So until England starts with changing the culture in the game on home soil, they will continue losing to teams like San Marino, err... I meant Iceland.

Im a fan of the Chelsea boots Yant.

The dessert boots are Millsy territory. Swerve.

Nothing says 'I've gone dad and given up' like a pair of desert boots.

Dessert boots do sound a tad flambéyoyant though.

Shave your head, roll up your jean cuffs, botton up your Ben Sherman shirt all the way to the top, throw on your Doc Martens and drink a bit of London Pride and you've got the look down pat.

Loving watching England crash out and burn every time.    Even better when it's to a country where they spend three quarters of the year freezing their nuts off eating fermented shark.

Why would you want them to win when you spend all your time wishing you were English on English websites, with English people, wearing items of clothing with England emblazoned on, listening to English Dj's and English music, spaffing on about English politics and English culture? You unfathomable prick.

Because:
1.  You're English.
2.  I'm of German background.
3.  England are shit and Iceland are worthy of cheering for.  David vs. Goliath.
4.  You're actually the prick here.

Need any more reasons, Monsieur Cretin?

You won't be able to afford a teepee, let alone proper housing with the state of the UKP and the housing market in Vancouver.  It's one of the world's most expensive cities in the West.

Toronto, Canada and football are some of the topics I'd like to continue winding you up about.

Loops. As a football player of some note yourself, what advice would you give old Wobbly Woy with the face of an owl?

Quit. Then get the English FA to hire Klinsmann or Klopp and do what Germany did when they started sucking at major tournaments and losing to England in Munich (queue WWII jokes).
