Friday’s history and the weekend is almost over. Our football team will be deep in their ‘open and honest’ meeting with the manager as I type. When they emerge, we hope to hear that Joe Cole will on the pitch while Heskey won’t and that Gerard will slot in just behind Wayne. I am ready to tell them that we are right behind the whole team and looking forward to Wednesday night, that the John Barnes rap on telly has worked it’s magic (we are both real suckers for advertising…) and we are eating Official England World-Cup Mars-Bars….!
