England Carried Away

By lifesnapper  
Hi all, and thank you all so much for your interest in my '17th Century Graffitti' image. I have no reason to doubt that it is authentic, but I would really love to find out for sure, and who was responsable for it.
Meanwhile, FOOTBALL !!! as in Olympic Footie. I think our Team GB Men should take a good long look at how our Team GB Women play, and the excitement and commitment of 90min's attacking Football. The Men are SLOW, BORING and rely more on luck than skill to score Goals. They are VERY predictable and only have 4 players out of 11 who really put themselves about. The Women however, have 11 out of 11. Not just our Women of course, but just about every Team I've seen so far.
But as far as the Mens Teams are concerned, Team GB have a lot of catching up to do in the sense of 'looking like they mean it'.
Anyway, rant over, but wether it's England or GB, the Men should start showing some pride and honer in playing for their Country.
O yes, and I hope you like the picture Smile

You are on the ball as always again John, the GB Mens team were awful apart from the Goalkeeper who played for Cheltenham Town in League 2 last season. I bet you enjoyed watching Hope Solo in goal for the USA and of course the Netherlands ladies hockey team last night, there were some hotties in that one!WinkGrinTongue
