      Even though we said no pressure on the team I think the press has started to up the pressure good luck England as long as they play well I'll be happy.
      If we win the first game then even more pressure will be put on the team.
      However I am looking forward tonight's game.

      Nice sentiments, but unfortunately your last sentence probably sums it up. I have never known a more muted World Cup with England participating. Having said that, and with expectations so low, perhaps our boys could surprise everyone and have a good tournament.

      A pointer from the past - the last time England started a World Cup campaign on a Monday (I may be wrong on that!) was when we drew 1-1 with the Republic of Ireland in 1990. We did quite well after that!

      Come on England indeed, haven't been watching much international football for quite some time now so don't have a clue what the team's like.
      Hoping they can play without THE fear.
      With all due respect we should be beating teams like Brighton.

      Most normal football fans like us have been craving an England world cup based on reality for years.....ie stop the hype and enormous expectations.
      Fingers crossed under the radar no expectations will see something special happen..........everyone be quiet..............sssshhhh

      I don't think the Russians would mind the song about the RAF but you could change the words ito the Ruskis shot down a German bomber that might go down well.

      Perhaps Mig Ure could write the lyrics?
