An accident waiting to happen...

So the world cup has finally arrived but the optimism has already shrivelled up after Robert Green's howler.
As I heard Adrian Durham, one of the talksport presenters say, Robert Green is an accident waiting to happen. Thankfully it came when it's not too late to recover.

Granted he did make a save later on but to be honest, if that had gone in everyone would have been very disappointed and it nearly did!

Since Ledley isn't fit then Dawson needs to play alongside Terry because Carra is too much like Terry and we are very vulnerable with those two playing at the same time but it doesn't look like that will happen!

It's good to see Barry back, hopefully he can play himself back to match sharpness over the next couple of games whilst still managing to get through.

I wish Capello would play Crouch instead of Heskey, whilst Heskey did well to set up the goal, it's nothing that Crouch couldn't have done and his goals per minute must be up there with the best England have ever had.

I've not been playing much recently because I've been really busy, including a fantastic trip to London to watch Emma dancing in a fantastic show at the Albert Hall that was done with the school and the Royal National Ballet. The show was superb and it was great to see how exhilarated the kids were after the show.

Anyway... come on England!!!!

Busy busy busy

Well, after an incredibly busy couple of months I have finally finish the year end accounts and so I have a bit more time to update this blog.

I've not been playing that much lately other than the Friday night cash game in Leo's which is still going well b although I have had 2 losing weeks which are inevitable in this game we love so dearly.

I'm reading a body language book at the moment which is not poker specific but I have seen the smile I look for in it and I have also picked up another indicator that someone is lying which I will be looking out for next time I play.

I'm away for the weekend camping with Andrew and the rest of the AC Mags football team as we are in a tournament on Saturday morning so there will be no poker this weekend.

Things are changing at Liverpool FC too with the news that Rafa has finally been put out of his misery.

I've been a supporter of his but in the last year his relationship with the players seems to have waned and this has lead to the season we have just had so I couldn't see any other option for the club other than to part ways.

To be honest, I still think that we need to sell Gerrard since he is 30 now and so only has a couple more years left in him. If we can get £20-£30 million I think we would have to take it since there is no way that we would sign him if he were currently at a different club because of the cost for s 30 year old.

Whoever we get to replace Rafa is critical since this could be a pivotal moment in our history with the rise of Manchester City, Spurs and the threat of Everton.

My choice would be Hiddynk but I don't know if he is available.
