Yesterday, at the opening ceremony of The World Cup, the staff here at CFCnet Towers crowded around our black & white portable TV to watch through a flickering screen the first game of the tournament between South Africa and Mexico. Thankfully the fridge was full of fizzy stuff – I told Peter not to open the door as we got a huge puddle on the floor. So, tonight, again we’ll be watching England, hoping that Frank can score and get us off to a fine start against the USA – as long as the huge puddle gets cleared up in time!

In the meantime, here is the Official Line – June 12 2010.

After the summary of JT’s season yesterday, today the analysis turns to Deco. Ray Wilkins again gives his comments on our Portuguese playmaker. To read about Deco’s season click on Summary Of A Season: Deco
