Empty Promises and Broken Dreams

So..... I got up at 2am to watch the most anticipated match of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and while I can admit England played awful, the decision by the match officials to disallow Frank Lampards goal was a shocker!

I am left wondering about how gold the "Golden Generation" really were? and worrying who will be in the starting 11 in Brazil in 2014.

Fabio Capello will leave a happy man, he will get a golden hand shake for leading England to their worst World Cup loss in history.



Another interesting fact is this - Since 1966 we have never beaten any team of any quality at the knockout stage of a World Cup. Our only successes have been against the might of Paraguay, Belgium, Cameroon, Denmark and Ecuador.
