Same ole, same ole...  noooo:
Far from it

Yes the better team won on the night. Modric was head and shoulders better than Ali, Henderson and Lingard and we didn't have the quality on the bench to make enough impact. But no one should think we were anything but very good, far better than the sum of parts and only just lost to a very good team at its peak

Waist Coat shares will take a hammering tomorrow

Well The man reports from Moscow that disappointed at loss but Croatia were better team no question.

Says there is a great atmosphere in Moscow regardless and that is with all nationalities getting on well together. 

Also pointing out things in the City that totally bemused him ( apart from the language) ..like why they have 24hr florists ????

Have you seen their driving? You need to have access to bunches for tying to lamp standards and  trees around the clock. Presumably they have 24hr bedraggled teddy bear shops as well.

You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

Apologies if this has been mentioned somewhere else, I don't know why this only just cropped up in my news digest but the article beggars belief.

Diego 'Hand of God' Maradona, has stated that the results of the England v Columbia leg of the World Cup was stolen by us and we didn't deserve it.

Link is broken

IIRC Maradona took back his idiot comments a day later.  Like anyone took that piss head seriously when he made them
