England win and look ready for World Cup

England won last night and it looked like they could have gone up a gear if they needed to which was nice.

Fat Frank also missed a penalty when the cheating scouser Steven Gerrard dived for a penalty. I wouldn't mind so much if it wasn't a friendly match but it was. I also think Stevie Gerrard is probably the best player we've got but he did cheat and he is a scouser.

All of the refs will get together before the tournament and players like Gerrard will be mentioned. It won't do us any favors.

Still, England win and less than two weeks to the World Cup.

It looks like Rooney could be fit for the World Cup

If one player really could make or break this World Cup I reckon it's Rooney. Take away all the crap that comes with him, or did and you have possibly one of the best footballers on the planet.

I like Rooney and from what I've read about him he's an honest, down to earth lad who just loves his football.

The news today is that Rooney is making perfect progress in his battle to be fit and it's only now that I really understand why Svennis was so adamant that he would be in the squad if he had even the slightest chance.

I hope Rooney is fit and I hope he plays. He could be the difference. Roll on Roomania!

It all rests on the Rooney scan

Wayne Rooney is off for a scan on his foot next week which won't tell us if he can play in the World Cup but you'd think it would confirm we'd won the World Cup based on the amount of press coverage a scan is getting.

It really is turning into Footballers Wives and it's starting to piss me off. Sure I'm supporting England and I'm as interested in preparations for the World Cup as the next man but this is just a joke.

The British press are a joke and all they're doing is putting every single person involved with England high up so when they lose they've got further to fall. I'm seriously considering just watching the matches from my local pub now as all the hype is starting to do my head in.

Strength in numbers movement: England World Cup Song

We like World Cup songs and this one is going to be played by me for a few weeks or until England get knocked out because they played Beckham.

It's simply called England and is well worth a listen if you like rap. I'm listening now and I'm loving it. When you get to the site click on the song England on the right hand side or you'll get some other song. Come on England!

Win some tickets to the World Cup and feel good at the same time!

The World Cup is sold out so where will you get tickets? You can now bid on tickets and fund life-saving research at the same time.

If you win a ticket you'll also get put up in a 5-star hotel. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is auctioning four category 1 tickets to Round of 16 in Cologne, June 26, 2006 (Match 54 -- Winner Group G vs. Runner Up Group H) and four Category 1 tickets to Round of 16 in Dortmund, June 27, 2006 (Match 55 -- Winner Group F vs. Runner Up Group E).

They're also two rooms for two nights (26-27 June) at the Excelsior Hotel Ernst in Cologne. If you want a chance to win these tickets, you have spare cash that you don't know what to do with then get along to the auction and bid.

Less than a month to the big kick off

Sven has picked a toddler for his provisional squad and Rooney and Owen will probably not make it and if they do they're not going to be 100%.

It should be depressing times but I've still got a glimmer of hope. I think Sven has overlooked some players that could do a job but he knows best, doesn't he?

England will be fired up for this tournament and for some of the squad it will be the last chance to win it. Beckham can be an inspiration and he'll be the one in the dressing room reminding the players of the war and battles in the past.

England are still in with a shout and Sven reckons we can get to the final. I reckon if we can get to the final we can win it just like West Ham can today. My big concern is getting knocked out in the fist stage as I think it's possible.

I've still not got my tickets but I'm going anyway. Come on England!
