(Before you explode, No Arka, I'm not being serious)
Hmmm..... I must say that I like the fact that you are being more optimistic than before.
What I really wonder about is why people are so pessimistic.
This has been going on for ages.... we lost against Denmark and N.Ireland and people began to say that we wont go through.... then they said that they would not go through to the group stages..... they said that they would lose against/draw with Paraguay.... draw against T&T.... and what not.
Whats the logic behind all this? Come on! This is England we are speaking of, a team which boasts over five international players. How on earth can you possibly not qualify from a group which has Paraguay and T&T?
At times the pessimism is ridiculous. I know that no one can confidently say that 'We'll win the Cup', but there are five or six teams out there who can do it and England is certainly one of them.
We have played two matches and won both. I dont remember when was the last time we won both of our first two matches and we have not won our first match for ages. And not forgetting that we have qualified with a match to spare, something which has not happened for six world cups!
At this moment a victory parade in Berlin looks very much possible.
