I can't contain myself

its only 58 days god dam it, my entire brain is getting swamped with the world cup, everything is going out of the window ! I nearly slumped into complete depression when becks got injured last night, thank god it looks like he'll be o.k <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

my c.d player is on constant repeat of the official euro 2000 album, my wallchart has pride of place on my wall and i'm always checkin football websites for any news on proceedings !

mods, i could write a 'world cup diary' a little piece on each day, perhaps a preview of the teams on the days leading up to the world cup ? let me know if you'd like that.

COME ON BOYS, we can do it this year, imagine if we did ! i think i'd just top myself at that point, i mean that would be the absolute pinnicale of my life - i can see it now, a tense final 0-0 with seconds to go, then suddenly becks floats a beautiful ball into the path of Owen, then as we look on it becomes clear he's clean through, one on one with the keeper, everything just stops, silence falls across the nation, he pulls his foot back, my heart stops, then it happens the ball flies into the bottom corner and the whole nation goes fucking mental.

*calms himself down*

*god, i need help*

    I want some World Cup action now. I know its the most exciting Premiership season for a long time and that the Champions League is looking promising but thats not enough for me!

    I've bought the England home shirt, I've bought the England training shirt. I've picked my own squad, my team and all the rest of it. I've even watched most of the Nigeria and Argentina games since the draw! <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I can't belive its four years since France '98. Its seemed to have flown by! I keep meaning to post my World Cup Master Prediction thread, but i've never got round to it.

    I love it during the group stages when theres so many matches on, EG Costa Rica Vs China - completely irrelevant, but I must watch it!

    Roll on May 31st!

    The group stages are quality. It adds to the time it gets to the quarter finals and you have that nightmare: Theres no football on all day!

    Seriously though I must not let the World Cup get in the way of GCSE exams preperation <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
