Argentina… June 30, 2006

Posted by 30minutemeandering in Football.

…go home early. From a team which looked like they were going to go all the way to the final they tailed off in a disappointing way. As for Germany they go through(and probably all the way to the final)¬†and keep alive the hopes of the host nation.

…start today, who do i think the winners and losers will be-

Germany v Argentina- Well i stand by my previous prediction, Argentina will overcome the Germans home advantage.

Italy v Ukraine- Italy will be too good for an unimaginative Ukraine side.

England v Portugal- 3rd time lucky for Sven v Scholari

Brazil v France- Brazil because the only team i see beating them are Argentina and maybe England.

…cichlids are having another go at being fishy mum and dad, they have another set of eggs and seem to be looking after them more diligently, they managed to survive overnight.

As for the T-bar fry, 7 have survived to a point where they are unlikely to be troubled by any of the other fish in the tank. Not bad considering this all occured in a community tank.

…done anything completely insane today?

I have been party to some insanity in that Mrs 30minutemeandering, phoned her mother got the answerphone then forgot to hang up, where upon she came into the bathroom while i was i the bath and we started to have a bit of a steamy conversation, suffice to say it is all on the mother-in-laws answerphone.

I have to say i don’t care but then she isn’t my mother!

…still paranoid. I have just had the strangest conversation with the people from the catalogue because i thought they were trying to steal my identity, the worst thing about it is that at the time it seems so real, it’s only afterwards that it really sinks in, and i feel quite rediculous.

Venus Williams… June 26, 2006

…stated that women should be paid the same amount of money as the men at Wimbledon that women should have equality, in fact she so strongly believes it that she says its a human rights issue.

I don't care if you think i'm sexist but i think Venus, you are talking out of Uranus.

For a start tennis is not a game played on equal terms, men don't play against women in singles. maybe they should, one set of rankings would make it simpler then everyone is equal.

Or women could at least play an equal amount sets, best of 5 like the men at Wimbledon.

As for human rights, i think she has a cheek to put this in the same bracket as some of the attrocities that are occuring around the world.

…make it. Yesterday i wondered what you had to do to make it to the top of a top blog list, the one i chose was Blogadvance top blogs which is in my side bar if you want a look, but let me tell you with a blog like mine it's virtually impossible. Anyway all day i was on Blog explosion(also in side bar) battling, surfing and rocketing, and the best i could do was 2nd in the Blogadvance top blog, and i couldn't do it every day i was knackered by the end.

So experiment over i shall return to surfing for blogs i find interesting to read. 

Well done if you are at the top of any lists you have certainly earned it. 

Group… June 24, 2006

…stages of the world cup are complete the only surprises are probably Ghana and Australia, can either go any further, well i think Ghana will give a good showing against Brazil but will certainly be going home after the game. Australia on the other hand are a diferent matter as surpise packages go i think Italy are going to have to be at there very best to progress.

So to the rest of the rounds winners and losers-

Germany – Sweden, I have to plump for germany just on home advantage.

Argentina – Mexico, Bet the farm on Argentina.

Portugal – Holland, For me the must watch match of the round, to tight to call.

Switzerland – Ukraine, I have to go with the Swiss, a good defensive record goes a long way.

Spain – France, Spain cruised through their group and have the momentum to brush aside an underachieving France.

England – Ecuador, England are going to have a hard match but will shade it if Sven gets it right.

What do i think the England team should be –

GK- Robinson, RB- Carragher, CH- Terry,CH- Ferdinand, LB- A Cole, RW- Gerrard, CM- Hargreaves,CM- Lampard,

LW- J Cole, CF- Rooney, CF Crouch.

If Ferdinand is ruled out by injury i would select Lennon on the right push Gerrard into the middle, Hargreaves right back and Carragher into centre half.

I realise there is the obvious omission of Beckham but he has jut been woeful i think his time has passed.

If you think i am wrong or you have a better team leave it in the coments.

The humiliation… June 23, 2006
