Hmm, Larkin seems to be sitting on a football jersey icon. I've got one word for you: "1950"
Carrying on with M A Peel's football reference. I have just sat through the latest England disappointment with a load of English people. The saving grace was that there no Scots present. Otherwise there could have been bother.
I saw a tweet that the Scots were rooting for US in the match.I'm a lifelong Mets fan, so I understand disappointment.Here's the Onion's assestment:England: Known for inventing new ways to underperform; look for England's players to lose their first World Cup match by forgetting what time it starts and everyone going skydiving instead.
What you chaps always neglect to mention, Mrs Peel, is that the winning goal in 1950 was scored by a Haitian. (Nice that her Maj gave the hapless goalie a medal, 60 years on.)Indeed, BWT. I do wonder how the Caledonians will behave if and when they actually qualify again.Like the Onion analysis, but preferred the prediction for Saturday night, that kick-off was at 1930, but the Americans wouldn't turn up until 1941.
