  18. Sad to say football today is so boring to watch..........square passes...Back passes.......keeping possession..... Gone are the days of the long ball and taking on defenders with a mazy dribble...and a few crunching tackles or even a shoulder charge on the keeper......... Glad the Euro's are over.....sick of seeing so called fans dancing up and down shouting ''C'MON ENGLAND'' while kissing their mates...with a Pint in hand....... To say nowt of the so called experts on TV saying they are ''proud of them ''and are all hero's...Demi-Gods''
