Actually, Blame Stuart Hall

Forget Sepp Blatter, the goal that wasn’t given or a rank bad English display, I reckon the cause of our demise was the curse of Stuart Hall, Gary Lineker and Walkers Crisps.

If you haven’t seen the tv ads, they have produced fifteen flavours for the World Cup, and see where it got the teams?

Irish Stew, Welsh Rarebit and Scottish Haggis didn’t even qualify. Australian BBQ Kangaroo, French Garlic Baguette, Italian Spag Bol and South African Sweet Chutney failed to get past the group stage, while American Cheeseburger and English Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding have already fallen at the next hurdle.

That leaves Brazilian Salsa, Dutch Edam, German Bratwurst, Spanish Chicken Paella, Japanese Teriyaki Chicken and Argentinian Flame Grilled Steak still standing. For now.
