ARGH! - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
Last night was possibly the worse game England have played so far.  We got the end result we wanted (we won the group - so we won't meet Germany on home soil for our next game) but that was about the only positive thing you could take away from the game.

What doesn't help is the constant speculation by the commentators.  "England have not won a game against Sweden since 1968" they say.  "I don't know what it is about them, but we just can't beat them" 

I have a theory... the reason we can't beat them is because the commentators keep saying stupid shit like "we can't beat them"  It's a self fulfilling prophecy!  The guys playing football with the weight of an entire nation on their shoulders don't need the added pressure!

Today I spent two hours preparing a report only to find the source data was rubbish.  That about sums up my day really.  I've just spent another hour and a half recompiling the damn thing so I didn't miss the deadline.

I hate my job.

I had to listen to 60 minutes of 'Happy Hour' alternating with the two prophesies (Haven't beaten the swedes since 68 - Haven't lost the last group match) Well, they were both true last night.

But I primarily blame my current DM who had the last goal to be scored between 86 and 90 minutes in the charity sweepstake. He's won 3 on the trot. Hardly a coincidence, especially as he favoured a draw. If we get to the final, I'm going to make him work it!

Does this man have crystal balls? Do they clink and make him walk funny?

Well actually he's my deputy manager. But now I come to think of it, would I were in his dungeon with a crystal ball in my hands *snoffle*.

Himself is *so* darkly cutesome +

I thought the first half was pretty good .. suppose that just shows you how much I know about football ...

The first half was much better than the second - not just in the score line! - but we were still a bit shoddy defending against the free kicks and corners. And that makes it painful to watch... it was a time bomb waiting to go off.
