England, at the Derby

England, at the Derby, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

England flags at the Derby four years ago, as 'we' were getting ready to play against old rival Argentina. A game of sweet revenge, but because we had not beaten Sweden, we lost first place in the group and had to play Brazil in the next round. England took the lead and then lost it to an amazing shot by Ronaldihno and we were soon out. Hoping for better luck next time, with a last 16 tie against Germany on the cards if we again do not beat Sweden, which we have not done in over 30 years.

The rain continues to pour down in Amsterdam, getting worse every day, time to plan ahead for the World Cup and complete the World Cup questionnaire/competition, prepared at Fred's school. He came last in the school four years ago, partly by having England winning the World Cup. I'll be helping him, and we have an Italy v Brazil final, which Brazil might win.
A word of advice to the organisers: it might be more interesting to seed the teams, such that you give more points to people who nominate less fancied teams than to those who nominate the favourites.

My computer came back from HP today, four weeks after it broke down. All my files and programmes erased. Fortunately, they have been saved and I imagine it'll be at least a week or two before evrything is back to what it was before the break-down. Again, we'll see. For the time being, I'll continue to be a regular at the Vibra internet point on the Linnaeusstraat.
