He said that he’d deduct me half a crown though and I wouldn’t be able to have Christmas Day off, but it was worth it.

Anyhow, Sunday bought us three games in The World Cup – In England’s group, Slovenia beat Algeria 1-0 to go top of the group, for now. From what I’ve seen, the English should manage to beat both Algeria and Slovenia, well, here’s hoping anyway. The second game of the day saw Ghana beat Serbia. The Serbs had Branislav Ivanovic in their team, however, a goal by Gyan in the last minutes of the game saw Serbia tumble to defeat. To read The Official Line on the game Click Here

Well, I’ve got to go now as the lift on the 74th floor here at CFCnet Towers has broken down. It looks like it’s the stairs for the toilet again, I hope nobody slips on it. I shall continue with The Official Line again tomorrow.
