Passionate, enthusiastic, optimistic, loyal …eccentric… and funny.
England fans after the trouncing we received by Germany in the World Cup yesterday.
These guys are utterly deflated but their get-ups made me laugh out loud because they reflect the glorious nuttiness of our nation. I wanted to win (obviously) but despite our second goal – which a seriously myopic referee failed to spot – Germany were the better team.
Now that we’re out I can’t even swap my allegiance to the French because they were sent home in disgrace last week. I guess it’s not my World Cup year, so that’s my interest in the footie for another 4 years!
Germany however are a nation ‘on a roll’ this year aren’t they? The planets are clearly generally aligned in their favour, so I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they win The Cup.
But don’t worry…We’ll be baaaack.
