a valiant effort by England but when it comes to a deciding penalty shootout, we are rarely likely to win, as was the case last night. We are out but not disgraced, and our young team can look back with some pride at their first big competition and feel some sense of satisfaction - can't they? I think so anyway. Better luck next time chaps!!!
The storms continue unabated and the washout is making everyone feel that this summer might as well be over and done with, the autumn can't be much worse!! But I am hopeful for July and August, as only an optimist can be. It's almost there . . . Sunday brings the start of the 7th month of this year - where did the last six go?
