BRIAN & ANGELA

ENGLAND ~ GREAT AGAIN !

 

 

THE BEST YOUNG TEAM ~ ENGLAND HAS EVER HAD !

TONIGHT (TUESDAY) ENGLAND PLAYED A VERY PHYSICAL

GAME AGAINST COLOMBIA !  THE SCORE WAS 1:1 AT FULL TIME

AND EXTRA TIME ~ SO IT WAS THE DREADED PENALTY SHOOT OUT

ENGLAND WERE TRIUMPHANT WINNING 4:3 ON PENALTIES ~ THE

QUARTER FINAL AGAINST SWEDEN WILL BE MUCH LESS PYSICAL   

 

HAS NOBODY told Mister Trumpet ?

That World Greatness is not achieved 

By Tweets ~ Building Walls or Trade Wars

But by ELEVEN Immature Men

In shorts kicking a Bag of Hot Air !

In Two Zero Two Six ~ WORLD CUP will be run

By CANADA ~ USA ~ MEXICO

Now that really is a JOKE ~ AMEN !

 

Strange Bedfellows on "The Path to Glory"

FRANCE ~ Cheese & Wine ~ beat ARGENTINA 

URUGUAY ~ Muy Guapo ~ subdued PORTUGAL

RUSSIA ~ nuked ~ much fancied SPAIN

DENMARK ~ Legoland ~ dismantled by CROATIA 

JAPAN ~ Home of the Haiku ~ Beaten By Belgium !

SWEDEN & SWITZERLAND ~ Too Nice & Too Neutral

BRAZILIAN Coffee ~ stronger than MEXICAN Tequila

COLOMBIA vs ENGLAND ~ more Pomp than Circumstance !  


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN XOX

 

All over the WORLD ~ English ex pats are very excited

about tonight's match and we are all convinced that with

Harry Kane at the helm we can win without the dreaded 

Penalty Shoot Outs ~ ANGELA being 11 hours ahead knows

the result but she won't tell me ! If ENGLAND do get KO'd

we can always watch Wimbledon ~ even without ANDY MURRAY !

    I am not a big fan of sports. I enjoy a few. It is a nice write however. Thanks for sharing. I do like the Olympics though. Have a good one.

      THANKS FRIEND ~ Because I was born & bred in LIVERPOOL ~ Football (Soccer) always played a big part in our daily lives. I supported Everton (because my Dad did) other members of my Extended Family supported Liverpool ! The Olympics will always be very special. The increasing success of TEAM GB has made them increasingly seductive. At my age (35) I would still rather participate than spectate ! Thanks for your comments BRIAN

        A fine write Brian. Andy crocked out? He's a bit old now ya know!

          I am a bit old but I used to play tennis quite well back in the day, I was Kent Youth Club champion back in the 1960s.

            We have had this conversation before, I wish them well but do not watch football, they cheat all the while..

            Good write though Brian.

            Roll on the match - wine at the ready and ready to go - but I'll have to watch it in the study - my wife doesn't appreciate it as I do.

              'Thanks MIKE ~ I'm glad I'm glad I'm not the only FOOTY-FREAK on MPS ! I'm watching on my own catching up on MPS and KANE has just scored from the spot ! This is poetic justice because the Colombians have been much too robust ~ more like RUGBY LEAGUE ! It's 7:30 am WEDNESDAY in Auckland and ANGELA is in the PUB routing for England with all the UK Immigrants ! She tells me Garry ~ Harry and all the England Team are very Popular in Auckland ! I am going round to my Parents after the Match for what I hope will be a Celebration Supper ~ Hot Pork Pies ~ Oven Chips ~ Mushy Peas and Golden Hen ~ Good Northern Grub ! Please you're back ~ thanks for your comment ~ Yours BRIAN

              Count me in for the wine and biscuits but sorry the game simply has no appeal - -- however I respect that any true-blooded male Liverpudlian will want to set me aright on tonight's match - - enjoy the excitement dear Brian and may your team win. x

              THANKS FAY ~ ENGLAND 5 COLOMBIA 4 After extra time and a dreaded Penalty Shoot Out ! England did it the hard way but the Q Final against SWEDEN should be easier. I am very happy with the result because we are a Young Team with a New Manager and we played like Gentlemen ! Thanks for your encouragement ! It's 9:30 am (WEDNESDAY) in New Zealand but ANGELA was up early and able to watch the whole Match with the other Brits ! Love BRIAN & ANGELA XOX

              I also am not a big fan of sports but I do appreciate your poetry! Great job! I hope things turn out the way you wish. Sister christina

                THANKS CHRIS ~ we are all Dancing in the Streets because ENGLAND WON ~ I have changed the title to ENGLAND GREAT AGAIN ! We needed 90 minutes then an extra 30 and then the DREADED Penalty Shoot out ~ We scored FOUR out of FIVE but COLOMBIA only THREE ~ so we won and will play SWEDEN ~ (who are all Gentlemen like ENGLAND) in the Quarter Finals. Now that SPAIN are out ANGELA is able to support ENGLAND 100%. She together with lots of other BRITS in NZ ~ was able to watch the whole Match (6am to 8:30am Wednesday Morning) before going to work ! Her first clinic was 10am ! Every Blessing # Abrazos Fuertes de Tus Hermanos ANGELA y BRIAN @@@@@@@

                Hi Brian,

                An awesome, superb and brilliant sports write.

                Thank God England overcame the curse of the dreaded penalty shootout with their 4-3 penalties victory over Columbia.

                The sky is the limit in Russia 2018!

                England need to be cautious with Sweden the Swedes are quite good in Europe!

                Come on England!

                Keep writing
                FineB

                  Thanks FRIEND ~ It was a awesome Victory not just PHYSICALLY ~ England were fitter ~ more skillful and played much cleaner ~ but also PSYCHOLOGICALLY because we won it by A PENALTY SHOOT OUT ! Pleased you lked the POEM. I've been to SWEDEN several times and it is a very Pristine and Disciplined Country ~ Swedes are very fit and great Sportsman. England are capable of beating SWEDEN but it's GOALS that COUNT ! Yours BRIAN.
