I did love the way Clint Dempsey ran off celebrating the goal like he just scored a wonder goal like Pele or something.

Bless him, he probably tried every other sport and he's finally found one.

OK we did not play fantastic but let's not forget USA are no walk over - they beat Spain 2-0 in the Confederation Cup - Green - well a bad mistake but strikers miss open goals and penalties all the time - I guess the nerves on the night got the better of him.

Anyway onward and upward as a wise man once said 'we all have to exceed our own expectations'

Woken up with the mother of all hangovers. At least we weren't bombed by Al Qaeda as some predicted.

The more I think about the game, the more I hate Heskey. Useless prick. I saw on Sky News they were slagging off Rooney - poor sod never stopped running all night, desparate for service that never came. SWP was crap, Milner not good enough IMO, Lampard typically poor. Lennon did well, Gerrard ok, Carragher? Milk turns faster. Green dropped a clanger and then looked terrified every time the ball came near him (as were we). Doesn't make him a bad keeper, just makes him have zero confidence which you need at this level - I'd drop him for the rest of the tournament, sadly.

Today?

Algeria 0 Slovenia 0
Serbia 2 Ghana 0
Germany 1 Australia 0

Great pic - we were watching on ITV HD - they lost transmission for 20 seconds EXACTLY at the time Gerrard scored so I missed the only moment of English glory - story of my life!

Sunday Mirror's front page today - picture of Green - headline 'Hand of Clod' - I feel sorry for the poor sod.

I still feel optimistic - given a better service Rooney will do us proud

Certainly did - I tried uploading a photo during half-time but the mobi site didn't seem particularly friendly last night. Either that or the 8 pints of Castle I'd had created a ID10T error....

So the Germans do it again - leading up to any major tournament they look so so and the when it matters they ramp it up to excel - last night they were organised, efficient and looked like true pros - and all without Ballack.

As for us - Ledley king now out with a groin injury

Brilliant Manc - just the result was disappointing. Roll on Friday! Off to France v Mexico on Thursday, home at around 4am, then a 7 am flight to Cape Town. Concert at lunchtime, game at 8pm, then back to watch fatboyslim until 3am - and then a 9am flight home on Saturday morning. The wife is delighted.

Yeah - looked good last night. So Dawson has to come in now? Carragher was badly exposed at centre back - we should be ok in the group but Germany would kill us. If we finish 2nd (a possibility) then we would play them next.
