Not this time.

But I have watched the video of the latest version of the greatest football song ever.

I hope I"m able to blast that at a couple of scottish and welsh guys I know who have a viceral hatred for any England success. Greatest football song...what about the New Order one. World in Motion.

Any predictions. England to make it to the quarters or semis and hopefully Maguire will be on the bench.

For the 1998 World Cup, the 'official' song was by Echo and the Bunnymen, Ocean Colour Scene, Space and the Spice Girls. I can't imagine that Echo and the Spice Girls had much in common. One of my favourite groups with one I can't stand.

To be honest, I have no interest in the World Cup this year, and it's all down to the fact that it's in Qatar only because they bribed their way to get it, and then killed over 6,000 immigrant workers, making them work in unsafe conditions. Then there is also the fact that they are actively imprisoning and execution people because of their sexuality. There are plenty of other channels, and I was watching football today, WSL between Chelsea and Spurs.

My sentiments as well, albeit I was watching one or the other matches.

I've decided that from January 1st, I'll only be watching videos in 1080p or higher. It's my New Year's Resolution.

Nushka met a spicy creature last week. A week later, she's all better and the spicy thing is in a trap waiting for the trapper man to collect it. It will go in the cooking pot apparently.
