Arsenal @ The World Cup

Match 3

England (1) Vs Paraguay (0) 



A very unimpressive start to England's World Cup campaign – a 1 Nil win, but achieved in a very unconvincing style. We couldn't even score, relying on an own goal for our win.

Not helped by a totally fucking incompetent referee, there is clearly only room for improvement.


Still under contract to Arsenal just… Ashley Cole clearly needs a few more games to be at his best, a few sloppy mistakes by Ashley could have put us into trouble on a couple of occasions. Clearly the games in the run up to the Champions League final were not enough and his confidence needs a boost if he is to be categorised as a trully world class left back.


Wonder kid Theo Walcott only made the bench, and despite Owen coming off, he didn't manage to make his 1st World Cup appearance, the muppet Hargreaves getting the nod ahead of him when Joe Cole came off.

Come on England, Sven's defensive Italian style of protecting a 1 Nil lead is not good enough to win this trophy.
