Why England Will Win The World Cup: We’ve got the best WAGs

My good friend McCutcheon has always had his priorities right, as the title of his short stories collection, Sex Drugs And Rock’n’roll Never Goes Out of Style, surely confirms. These last few weeks, McCutcheon’s web site has been rightly devoted to daily reports of the World Cup. Except that, unlike most of us who’ve chosen to view a match here and there, McCutcheon has worked overtime with the Tivo, and appears to have watched – and reviewed – every single World Cup game. That is, every single World Cup game. I have a headache just thinking about it.

Fortunately, McCutcheon has kept his priorities true to character while watching the TV coverage, as per this review of the England-Ecuador game. I had been thinking much the same thing myself:

What I want to know is who was that blonde sitting with Posh. Wowza! Posh better watch out who she hangs with because this lady could steal her thunder, or man. I better step in. I will take this lovely lady out. And when we have kids we will not be naming him Brooklyn. Hell no, if it’s a boy The Bronx, Queens if it is a girl or a gay boy and Staten & Island if we have twins.

What, no Man Hattan McCutcheon?

Between the Playstation FIFA 2006 game and the World Cup, Campbell has discovered a love of the Beautiful Game. He’s even asked for us to get a net up in the garden. Here he is attempting to teach Noel the finer points of the dribble.

    Guardian reckoned it was someone called ‘Cheryl Tweedy’. Yeah, I spotted her too. Not known to this ex-pat, but presumably a face in London. Has anyone else noticed that most, if not all the big teams are as underwhelming as England, at this stage?

    Wasn’t it Cheryl Tweedy, fiancee of officially not gay footballer Ashley ‘Girl’s Name’ Cole, convicted racist attacker and leader of oft-stalked girl group Girls Aloud? Apparently she said ‘who scored?’ to Posh at the crucial moment. Mee-ow…
    Nothing odd about watching every game, though even I demurred at the second half of SWI v UKR last night.

    No tivo, I’ve watched every game live except two, nothing special about that, I did miss two, if I was special I won’t miss one. I’m sure many people have seen them all. My excuse, everyone has one- I was on a plane for one and during the other, actually having a friendly kick about- at about the same skill level the USA team did in the World Cup.

    I’ve called Ashely Cole a boy wonder. He might love his ward. Or is he the ward?
