A couple of thoughts on England

That is – the England football team.

England - success at failureThe England squad: excelling at failure since oooh – at least the 1990s

Quite unsurprisingly, over the last few days, there’s been a ridonkulous amount of supposed analysis over England’s rather dismal performance in the 2014 World Cup.  Almost exclusively, that analysis has taken the form of trite observations from lazy columnists and rent-a-quote ‘has been’ pundits.

I’ve had a couple of thoughts that I’ve not seen anywhere else as to why the England squad seem to fall consistently flat.

Could it be down to the rather uninspiring nature of the country’s national anthem, failing to get them pumped-up before a game?

Or is it that, as a nation, we’re just not very good at football?

Have I hit the nail on the head?
