Small Mercies

Jubulani BallIt has been a wearing World Cup in many ways. The vuvuzela for a start — a cross between tinnitus and an angry wasp. Germany and Argentina doing so well when they had no right to on pre-tournament form. Ghana cheated out of a semi-final slot by Uruguay. The Jabulani ball that was just too bloody round.

England managing to underperform even when we had lowered our expectations. Clive Tyldesley‘s commentary. Mick McCarthy‘s doleful punditry. Alan Green cross with everyone and everything.

But be thankful for small mercies. At least Neil and Christine Hamilton didn’t release a World Cup song this time round.
