England - Ecuador, here I come

What a busy weekend I’m having.

And now I’m off to watch the England football match in Stuttgart against Ecuador, along with roughly 70,000 other English fans! No, we have no tickets, but a couple of big screens in the city centre and plenty of grub! If I get near a TV camera, I’ll be sure to give you all a wave (I’ll be the fat git in the background with an England flag painted on his face trying to cause trouble)

You see, I live in South Germany about three-quarters of an hour drive away from Stuttgart (‘Schtoo-g’rt’ as the Swabian natives say), so I thought this one ought not be missed. In fact, this will be the last game to be played in Stuttgart apart from the match for 3rd place. Beneath is a link to Joe Cole’s awesome goal against Sweden.

(P.S. Moltmann didn't even make it to the final Symposium slot at which he was alloted to speak. I suspect that he's simply getting too old for too much activity. His mind obviously remains sharp, though)

that was a fantastic goal! Have fun .. I hope England will move on too! I'm an England supporter even though I'm Malaysian! :-) I did spend 5 years of childhood in the UK!

Oh dear.

Chris, I hate to break it to you but England doesn't have a hope in hell (understood, of course, as godforsakenness and not a place of eternal torment) of winning this tournament. The winning country will obviously be the Netherlands.

Hup, Holland, Hup!

Chris...Hope you aren't arrested along with all those other rabid English fans! It was a good match, and Beckham really saved a rather sub-par did A. Cole! Unfortunately, I don't think St. George's cross will be waving much longer for three reasons: 1) no one can connect with one of Rooney's brilliant crosses, 2) Lampard is apparently trying to set a world record for most shots without a goal, and 3) Owen.

Nevertheless...go England!
