Warm and sunny in cape town - excitement building and lots of English fans here!

Tickets in hand, beer in the other. Does life get better?

Happy birthday Fabio, make us proud son.

I think it's time for a new Manager.

Every single player should donate their wages to charity, what a load of rubbish.

They are a bit in the shit now, aren't they? Complete lack of goal scoring. Early packing for the trip home?

I wouldn't say complete lack of scoring, more a case of a lack of any kind of teamwork at all. Forwards have a hard time scoring if the midfield isn't winning the ball.

It's history repeating itself a la 1990. Same results in qualifying so far, and England will beat Slovenia 1 - 0 to move into the last 16.

Angry - depressed - hacked off - ripped off.

You don't mind drawing or losing if your team give the impression of giving a shit, but we simply don't.

Not one player appeared good enough tonight - against Algeria. FFS.

At least fatboy slim is lifting spirits.

Keep the faith....

You'd think that by picking hungry up and coming players with proven track records like James and Heskey the team would do the job against any oppo wouldn't you?

After all, we invented the game, we should win against everyone ...

Faith, Schmaith, Enjoy the games, I'll enjoy my sleep.

It's John Terry I feel sorry for - now England's glory period is well and truly over it may not be quite so easy for him to get his legover - shame!

An earlier post had the blame being directed at Capello. Fair enough but the problems lie with the expectations of a nation which are far too high.

Steps are being taken to limit the amount of "foreign" players to a team which is a step in the right direction if the national teams are to progress.

The amount of dross which has made its way to British leagues is only because of money on offer. For every good one, there has been many donkeys.

How this move will sit with the law is another question with freedom of movement and court cases likely to spring up not to mention TV companies having their say.

The EPL is overwash with nationalities and until something is done to curb this, then the national teams will continue to be crap.
