Hear! Hear! Gareth Southgate seems a nice enough bloke and the England squad remind me of the last primary school team I ran. I must be getting old. All the Euro games I've seen so far (not many) seem to be marked by the teams taking turns to do interminable bouts of passing back and forth across the field to no great effect in the absence of any excitement. Give me non-league too!

Plenty of pre-season friendly action to come but, apart from the good news about the goalie and the striker earlier, I haven't seen any more news of Dolphins signings or re-signings. Other clubs seem to be active according to the SL web site. I await tonight's squad with interest. In Tom we trust of course!
I have to admit to getting quite excited watching the England v Denmark semi-final. Tempered rather by today's news about England fans allegedly shining a laser in Kaspar S's face at a critical point, allegedly letting off fireworks whilst definitely booing the Danish National Anthem and leaving mountains of litter. Most fans conduct themselves appropriately of course so it's a shame. It'd be nice to see the present England set-up and team win it though.
Meanwhile, roll on the non-league season and COYD.
After 25 min we let Italy dictate the game Penalties?? My mind wandered back about 60 plus years! Penalty for the Town. Up stepped the venerable Stan Earl Low and into the corner of the net, Stan missed very very few! UP THE TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWN!!!
